Happy New Year

My theme for 2008 is focus. Listening closely to my own voice. Deciding what I really want. Pushing all the clutter to the wayside.

The decluttering kicked off on a physical level in my sewing room. I removed all of the fabrics I keep passing over project after project. Time for them to go. I have two huge bags headed for the quilting program at the women’s prison. I got the crazy idea to list the remaining ones on eBay. Take a look at my listings, everything starts at 99 cents and just needs to go!

This is the Anna Banana table runner I gave my Mom for Christmas. Sherry and Stephanie made some beautiful ones too! It’s the smaller 40″ length. I was debating about the colors for the intersecting squares on my design wall and decided to incorporate all three choices! I quilted it using the suggestions I give for the place mats. A very quick and easy finish.

Happy 2008 to everyone! Reach for your dreams all year long.

If I eat one more Christmas cookie I’m going to burst!
