Have More Fun in 2014!

Thank  you Mary Englebright for your wonderful art!
Again…At the top of my list of….
things to do!

Have more fun!  Purposeful fun!  Lookin for it fun!

I'm making my fun list!

Reflecting on four fun things last year…in no order
I went to Paris with my sister, Kathy.
(that fun included fabric and classes)

I went to NYC with my daughter and two Granddaughters.
(that fun included three plays and a Ballet - no fabric)

I went on a road trip with my husband to Iowa.
(that fun included LOTS of fabric, fabric shops, museums of fabric and antique garments)

A trip to Cleveland to visit my sister.
(fun to sit and stitch with her!)

Things I want to do more of this coming year are:

1.  Have friends over for Tea and Stitching.
2.  Stitch more in front of the fire.
3.  Have more dinners with my kids.
4.  Go to more musical events and movies
5.  Stitch lovely baby gowns.

Oh, and for flexible goals?  I did get my first ever quilt basted and ready to quilt by the new year.   I love the way it looks and hope I don't mess it up with my abysmal quilting stitches.  But I am sure to get better if I …Practice!!

My cat is admiring it.

In the beginning!

You can do anything….one stitch at a time.

Finished and  all ready to quilt.

One stitch at a time.
(which is good advise for life living too.  One moment at a time)

Happy New Year to you all.
May the Lord bless and keep you safe in this coming year.
And may you have peace and love.

I hope you have lots of fun in 2014! That is a really good resolution. The quilt is beautiful and your piecing is lovely! Did you hand piece it? I take it you will hand quilt it. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year. May 2014 bring you joy, prosperity, and good company. And More Fun.

I did piece the quilt by hand (my first quilt) and am quilting it by hand but it is a learning process for me. This quilt has been stitched in Paris, NYC, Cleveland, Iowa and everywhere I have taught for the last year.
