Move 'em, Move 'em, Move 'em Rawhide...

I continue to adjust and exam my 2014 plan and one of the major steps taken was to unsubscribe from all my internet shopping emails...at least for the first 6 months of the year...:)  As I "brick and mortar" shop I am going to be discerning in my purchases.  HH thinks I shouldn't restrict myself (what a guy!) but, I think I have more than enough to keep me busy!

The next step, to let my sewing room know who's boss and start working on some of the BOM's I have around here...as if I am receiving them for the first time!!!  This will help me empty some of my project boxes so I can start new quilts.

The 2014 Flicker site is up and going.  I have just changed the header for the new year but left the 190!!! photos of quilts posted there for encouragement on what was accomplished by the Woolies!!!  I have got the ball rolling with the photo of my first UFO to hit the dust...so join me, leave comments and lets help each other enjoy the year!

Robin came over for a little stitching...love when a girlfriend comes out to play...when she saw my list she about choked!  But she had to admit that I had a whole lot less fabric than she had...oh yeah...feeling kind of smug!  She brought over her latest completed top, and boy is it a beauty!  Here she is taking a closer look at her quilting.

I love how she quilted it!  By approaching the quilt in smaller grids she was able to evenly cover the entire quilt with a variety of motifs.

isn't it lovely?!

Another goal this year is to include handmade gifts for birthdays and Christmas...so I am starting now!  I have my pillow pile going, aprons in the works and now I am attempting to make a big bag.  This pattern and lining fabric should make this project a no brainer...for everyone but me!  So, Robin is giving me a tutorial...what are quilt friends for!

HH and I were discussing how newpapers are becoming a thing of the past.  You rarely see a young adult reading a newspaper.  It is either a tablet or their phone.  But, the thing is... I love reading the paper each morning...and, I especially love a class schedule that is in paper form.  I know it is cheaper to have everything on line...but, how does one circle, scribble or drool over a phone...Wonder what I will be doing this Spring???  Are you signing up for classes at your neighborhood quilt store?
