One of the things I'm going to do this year is quilting - I've signed up for a free online BOM class at Craftsy and these are the fabrics I've chosen from my collection. I didn't want to buy any new ones but I might need just one more bright pink. The background colour will be white. We'll be doing 2 blocks each month, 20 altogether, which shouldn't be too challenging. I've never made a large quilt before and said I never would, so we'll see how it goes. It's not a huge one - twin size apparently.
I'd like to wish all my readers a happy, peaceful, safe and creative 2012. Thankyou to those who visit, leave comments and follow my blog - its much appreciated.
I see that I'm getting towards 200 followers - will have a giveaway then to celebrate.
I'm not sorry to leave 2011 behind - it's been quite a personally challenging year with family health issues and other things, and so many traumatic events here and overseas, but there were some good things too. My exhibition (shared with my husband's wood turning) and tutoring at Fibres West are 2 that come to mind. My husband's health is much better now but our parents still have ongoing health issues.
I'm already getting a rapidly increasing things to do list for this year. It includes:
Dressmaking, revamping my Etsy shop with more designs for my thermofax screens and some printed fabrics, setting up a blog for Designing Women, much more work with dye printing, teaching, submitting entries for exhibitions and working towards the Designing Women exhibition later this year.
That's it for the new year resolutions! (not really resolutions - just intentions)
