Once again Carla from Creatin’ In The Sticks put out a call for bloggers to join her in a Blog Hop, and I had to join in. I always enjoy Carla’s Hops 😉
It is fitting that the last Blog Hop of 2020, the year of craziness would be a somewhat different hop after the year of stress, drama and craziness we have had. For those who contracted Covid-19 or lost a loved one, my heart goes out to you.
The rules were simple:
“This hop doesn’t require stitching, it’s all about your stitching plan for the new year. Let’s share new ideas and inspiration. All you have to do is finish this statement in a blog post:
My stitching resolution for 2021 is _____________________________.”
I had to sit for a while and think about all of the things I would like to do; get better at doing appliqué work, do more paper piecing, start an EPP handwork project, and then I received a phone call that made my decision easy.
My stitching resolution for 2021 is to empty these bins:
They are full of my unquilted flimsies😊and really need to be finished and find knew homes. All of my flimsies are folded with backing and binding; some even have extra fabric “in case” I decide at the last minute that they need another border.
The telephone call I received was from “my guy” arranging delivery of my longarm just after New Years Day. It’s so wonderful to have another reason to look forward to the New Year! With some bins of flimsies to practise on, it shouldn’t take me too long to get up to speed with my techniques. 🤔
Does anyone have some suggestions for books they consider necessities on their quilting motifs shelf in their library? If so, please leave a suggested title for me in the comments below. 😄
For those of you who are new to my blog, I just bought one of these beauties just before we went in to lockdown the second time.
I have been trying to be patient while waiting for our numbers to go down and shipments to arrive. My technician went in to isolation when he closed the shop for Christmas. I do not see anyone other than DH so we both feel that it should be safe for a delivery to be made as long as we mask up and keep socially distant.
Have you been hopping around to see what everyone else is planning for the upcoming year?
