December????What the heck, over????

I can NOT fathom that it is December...as in, the last month of the year!  It is one of my favorite months for all the dreamy, hopeful reasons.  I love the decorations, the music, the chaos, the smell...everything December I love.  But, it also brings lots of reasons to be organized and thoughtful.  This is the month I decide where my time and monthly monetary donations will go for the next year, what quilt groups I will attend, what BOM's are in my future and, potential dreams.  When January arrives I am already out of the gate.  I don't wait till January to make promises to myself...I start thinking about them in December when I am feeling the glow of the season.  This is especially~~~special because it will be our last in this home and in this town.  Next December we will be living in Sisters.

So, today is First Saturday at BJ's Quilt Basket and I have already decided to sign up for the Fall Mystery BOM for 2013.  Starting January I am participating in a monthly wool project with some of the Woolies and I know that big on my agenda is finishing a Primitive Gathering BOW...most likely the one from 2011 so that I can sign up for the 2013 BOW when it is announced.  I will be taking June Jaeger's class at Quilter's Affair this summer and I am already signed up for a Toney Phillips/Sue Spargo retreat in November! AND, there is the 2013 UFO challenge. WOW!  the Fabric Stalkers already have a couple of retreats scheduled and there is lots to look forward to in 2013.

Another decision is what periodicals to subscribe too....I am a big Pinterest Fan and viewing the site is a morning ritual for me.  15-20 minutes every morning going through the post of people I follow and pinning that which interests me for future desires. For me it is like a magazine on line.  I have narrowed down over the years my magazine subscriptions and subscribe to 4...
















Actually I subscribe to 3 of these, QuiltMania is purchased monthly from QuiltWorks.  I love them all!  What is your favorite magazine???

Have a wonderful Saturday I will be at BJ's Quilt Basket for the BOM and then coffee with the besties and then our tree decorating...which means...and Spanish Coffee is in my future! HH told me he was fixing Spanish coffees not Irish...shows what I know, lol.
