This isn't about what quilt is coming next... though there are a few of those on the "drawing board".
This is about 2014. Like so many people, this time of year lends itself to thinking about the year that was, and especially about the year that's ahead.
I don't really make New Year's Resolutions, I prefer to think of it as finding a focus for the coming year. I like to keep it simple - I'm easily distracted.
So when I saw this sentiment somewhere online - Instagram? Pinterest? - I had to write it down. It was exactly what I was feeling.
I don't really know what it all means for me in the coming year but this has been noodling its way through my head for the past week.
The "simplify" has already started - I'm cleaning, organizing and down-sizing my "stuff". It has been scary and liberating and cluttery and entertaining. From fabric to books, kitchen towels to clothing... if it doesn't "fit" me, out it goes. Fit being a literal and figurative term - as in, I'm pretty sure I don't need those boots with the 4" heels.
I am making plans to go to Spring Market in Pittsburgh and I have this Pat Sloan Aurifil Block of the Month thing to work on. And there's the Quilts 'n More Scrap Lab projects, more of those are coming too. I think this all falls into the "work hard" part.
As for the rest, I'll let you know how that goes.
It's only January 10th. I have a little bit of time to figure it all out.
At least another week or so.
