Hooray for a new year!! 2008 was getting to be a bit much to deal with don't you agree? It just kind of fell apart near the end. Here's hoping that everything will be better in 2009. I looked at my quilt-related resolutions from last year and sure enough, not one accomplished. We are just going to roll those over to this year (kinda like cell phone minutes).
I really really really am going to finish up some UFOs this year. The number of projects in bags is crazy and needs to be cut down. This will also help clean up my sewing space so it doesn't looks like San Francisco after the Great Earthquake of 1906.
And I'm going to finish making all those jelly roll quilts that Karin and I are working on from our favorite book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam and Nicky Lintott. (PS: my mom is hooked on this book now too hee hee!)
I'm going to support my favorite LQS's (Sweet Home Quilt Co. and my favs in Michigan) as much as possible. Gotta make sure the shop owners keep buying new stuff to tempt us. When the economy is tough, it is so important to support small businesses (PS: and Starbucks!)
I realized that I missed my blog-iversary but it comes at a crazy time (Dec. 19). I will do a giveaway sometime soon to celebrate a year plus of blogging.
I also want to thank all the fabulous bloggers that I have met this past year!!!! Y'all have inspired me with your creativity, made me laugh and smile--especially at the posts about your pets (Rembrandt gets a special shout out for being so darn cute and silly), and were gracious enough to comment on my ramblings. Blogging and bloggers have become a fun part of my life and I can't wait to see what everyone is up to in 2009. Thank you again and hope everyone is spending the day exactly how they want to (sewing!!!!)!
