Aaah, that Projects List ! Have I listed, and listed, and added, and deleted ! I think the most difficult part is to choose among all those beautiful quilts and stitcheries, and I guess the key words are stay realistic...
Soooo, knowing that, I made two lists :>)
---> The Dream List :
the one I mentally review, when trying to find some sleep,
the one I won't share with you as it would be too long (thus boooooring),
the one I keep secret as you would seriously wonder if I'm losing my mind...
---> The reasonable List :
the one I'll stick on, this year (doing my best),
the one I'll visualise when I'll be losing my mind (LOL),
the one I'll share with you, bit by bit, month by month, in order to keep my good reputation of a serious, organized, realistic, trusty quilter... (why are you smiling ????)
Bust that Stash !
It's not that my fabrics are pushing the walls (yet)... but I really, really want to use what I've got on hand. I bought them because I loved them, therefore I'll use them ! Believe me : I'm in the best conditions to forecast some nice scrappy quilts.
Have you visited May Britt recently ? She is showing a beautiful sign, designed by Hanne, for that purpose.
Finish something !
Talking about May Britt, well she did it again ! I mean she pushed me (us) to action about those WISP's (Works in Slooow Process), you know those small projects you have almost forgotten, those poor orphans sleeping in a drawer, somewhere...
So I added an item on my sidebar, rumaged through my piles (yes, my piles ! Haven't you got "piles", somewhere ?)... and the winner is this one :
a funny wallhanging, that I started last Easter 2007. It still needs a pieced border and some nice handquilting, before parading on my kitchen wall - or above my desktop -"Any mail ?" being the first question I ask, when I get up...
Keep your promises ! ---> Winter - 4 Seasons Quilt Swap Due by end of this month.
I'm making a small stitchery quilt in winter colors. The stitchery is almost done. It still needs a pieced border, some handquilting, and a label of course...
And that's it for now, because.... :>)
On 31st January I'll be flying to visit May Britt in Norway, Yeaaaah !
- Good friends to "push" me on finishing something,
- Good friends to "push" me on fabric diet,
- Good doctor to "push" me on food diet,
- Good hubby to "push" me on less cooking,
- Good kids to ask me "what's for dinner tonight ?"

They say a good laughter is worth a steak...
So help me God !
PS : I still haven't got my Secret Santa Christmas Swap..... (???) and I'd be happy to know WHO was my secret partner ? Maybe she had a problem... (Donna, if you read me, could you check this ? THANKS dear !)
