I don't even know why I'm continuing to report. Well, there's the comedy factor for my readers!
Busted this week were 9.75 yards that were given away. There has been absolutely no sewing done at all for months on end here.
Nothing purchased. After all, what could I possibly need? I know, I know. Since when has "need" entered into the picture? Seriously, though, I have my eye on one small kit at the Fat Quarter Shop that won't be out until later next year. I have a recipient in mind for that quilt. And I'm sure I'm going to want Charlevoix yardage when it comes out. Maybe some La Petite Ecole yardage. Other than that, I don't plan on getting much else in the coming months. Well, I guess I have a couple of BOMs on order, so the finishing kits and backings for those will be incoming. But my "want" list is much shorter right now.
The first six months of the year are stressful at work but I hope to at least finish up some UFOs and get them quilted during that period. I did that last year and ended up finishing about eight or so quilts. That reduced the bulk in my sewing room - although you can't tell because of all the FQS boxes sitting around.
I'm working on my New Year's goals. I need to get back to my "quilting core" here. Just need to figure out how to do that in a realistic, do-able fashion. It needs to be fun for me again. I need to stess less and enjoy more while sewing. I can do that ... I think!
