Whew. The holidays are over. We’re back in NY and back to work. I have all sorts of plans for posts to catch up on what I made for the holidays, but can’t convince myself to work on them—my mind is all a-clutter with things I need to do both online and offline and seems unwilling to dedicate the brainwaves for writing.
In fact, I think this blog is going to be pretty quiet for the month of January. I have a lot I want to accomplish (and in some cases need to), but I don’t think it leaves any time for blogging about it all.
On the sewing front, one project I’m starting on Monday is the 30 Minutes a Day Tiramisu Sew-Along.
Also on Monday is the start of a new Sew You Want to Quilt session. We’re focusing on Amish Quilting styles this go-around. I have a color scheme I’m excited about, but I don’t know anything more about what we’re making. If you’re in the Utica area and are interested in joining a group of quilters of all abilities (it’s how I got started!), it’s a class offered by the Viking Gallery inside of the JoAnn in New Hartford Shopping Center. We meet bi-weekly (more or less) on Mondays at 5.
With the exception of these two projects and one more (a baby quilt done by March), I want to focus on finishing up existing projects in the early part of the year. I have a few different quilt projects in various states of completion—at least two of which I haven’t touched in over a year. Add in a couple of smaller projects that are half-completed, and my project zen is totally out-of-whack. I need to do some new year cleaning.
Finally, once I get back on track with some of my sewing, I want to do some housekeeping on the blog—decisions about how often to post, whether to have a schedule, etc. But, I probably won’t get to that until February.
So, the too-long; didn’t-read bit of it is: this month is about working, not blogging, although I’ll try to keep you updated on my two new projects. Stay tuned for February when I get back into the swing of things.
