Another point I would like to follow this year is to try to carve out some time to make more things. It is only January but 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year with a lot of really exciting shoots coming up! Making time to do some creative work for myself will give my mind some momentary refreshers during the really hectic times.
Jane shared this post on facebook over the holidays and everything Renate Hiller said about working with your hands really resonated with me. It lit a fire in me to finally make use of all the leftover fabric I used for bunting flags from our wedding 5 years ago. I remembered that this was one of the main reasons I wanted to learn how to make a quilt in the first place, so I could use up these flags!
This will be the biggest quilt I have ever made (big enough to actually cover 2 adults!). I am aiming to finish it by our 6th anniversary in September! Wish me luck!
