I've never been one for New Years Resolutions. Mostly because I always fail at them. Then a few days ago a friend mentioned that the only way she could ever manage to keep a resolution was to tell everyone she knew what she was planning on doing. That way, she knew they would hold her accountable.
So that's what I'm doing with this blog. I want to sew more, quilt more, get involved with my local and online quilting communities. I think I'm ready. So this year I've signed up for 2 online bees (Stash Bee run by Sunni at Love Affair with my Brother, and BeeJeebers run by Melissa over at Happy Quilting, a project-a-month at I Have to Say, and 3 quilt alongs (one free motion quilting here, another FMQ, and the Craftsy block of the month class FREE here).
I've got one finish already,my January BeeJeebers quilt block for Jamie Lee
I don't expect that anyone but me will be reading this, at least not for awhile. But I am committed to posting to it, and to these few other things...
- Learning to take decent photos to add to my posts.
- Blogging about each of my ongoing projects throughout the year, making note of what I found to be helpful or difficult about each project.
- Inviting a few friends and family members who are also new to sewing/quilting to join me and have fun.
I'm going to learn Quilting as a Second Language :)
