a new year

I"m entering the new year with a pep in my step unlike any I can remember.  I'm inspired and invigorated to try things and create things and experience things like never before.  I have made two resolutions, which I'm keeping to myself, because it is up to me to keep them. 

Although I have an ever growing list rolling through my head of all the crafty things I want to do this year, I won't bore you with the minutae.  Here is a taste of what I want to do:

1.  I want to learn new things and try new things - take another quilting course (I did a machine quilting course last year but am keen to try a sampler/ beginner piecing course).  Try some new blocks such as the spiderweb and the dresden plate.

2.  I want to get my sewing room and my stash really well organised - this has been started however have to wait another week or so for my cabinet to arrive.

3.  I want to create some more things for my home, cushions, maybe a wall quilt, a runner for the foot of my bed etc etc.

I could go on an on but I feel you may drop off to sleep, some of it is just not that interesting!  :)  I think my renewed vigour is mostly due to the generosity of my husband.  A couple of months ago we made the decision that I would stop working.  My husband understands my desire to create and my wish to make it something more than just a hobby.  But even as a hobby he gives me the space and time I need to pursue it - thank you hon.
