So I made this goal for the new year. I planned on stitching something every day for a year. It could be anything - stitches with a sewing machine, hand applique, sewing a button on hubby's shirt, anything! Well January 1st came and went and I failed my goal. In one day! Can anyone beat that???! I think my 'year' will have to end January 2nd 2010!
But tonight I made up for it. I had 3 wonky log cabins made from the Flea Market Fancy fabrics I won a few posts back, and some houses I was going to make something with for the recent craft fair I vended at. The houses and log cabin blocks were still on my design wall saying, "Quilt me! Quilt me!!", and so I listened to their pleas.
I am going to make lots of mini quilts this year. I would love to just plaster the walls in my home with them! Brenda at Pumpkin Patch Primitives is my inspiration for this. We have become great friends - in REAL life! Wow! - and the only kind of quilts she makes are little ones. You walk in her home and every wall and horizontal surface is tastefully decorated with mini-quilts. I have learned from her that you can put quilts anywhere you want! So this is my year of the mini quilt.
My cabins and house are not quite finished - I just have to stitch down the bindings, (which will fulfil my stitching requirement for tomorrow) but here is a sneak peek for now, hanging threads and all... The good thing about my goal for the year is that I should have a lot of things to show and share with you. I'm back on the blog-train!!
