Having said that I do like to brain storm as to what I would like to do in the New Year so I can have a plan of sorts. ( nothing concrete but a few directions)
Every first of the year my #1 goal on my agenda is to make a quilt to donate to my Parish for the yearly lottery. This is a donation I make in my father's memory and I love working on this project as I connect with my Hero, every stitch.
And Voilà here is the 2012 quilt.
The pattern is the Prairie Star; fabric, Garden Party by Blackbird. And now it is off to Agnes to be quilted.
On the new year's agenda is the Saulnierville Quilt Show. As I am responsible in organizing this event I have been listing the tasks which need to be done and when during the year they need to be done.
Check out the website to see the beautiful quilts from our region displayed at the 2011 quilt show. http://www.quilt-expo-couvertes.com/ ( leave a comment.. would love to hear from you)
Every year I think they will not be any more beautiful than the last year and every year the quilters come through with their magic and produce another aura of splendor. That is why I am so looking forward to the Quilt Show which will take place from July 30 to August 3rd/2012 at our beautiful church in Saulnierville NS. If you have plans to visit our region during the summer mark those dates... I will be there and would love to meet you!
I read on some blogs the "Word Up" for 2012 and they are all so exciting. Last year my word was "Lessen" and I think I really honored it. I was not overwhelmed with projects, and I have been using my stash and not buying new stock just because it is a new line that is out. I finished my term on a council and did not replace that task with another. I take time for "ME", which brings me to my focus for 2012... It is not so much a word but a sentence I want to live by ...
"I am the one in charge of my day" ...
Here's hoping you choose your days to be the brightest, the most peaceful and the happiest everyday..
