In putting together a Flickr mosaic of some of the things I accomplished - i.e. actually finished! in 2010, it was a good year!
|most of what I did, but misses a few of the postcards|
Will anything change in this bright new year? Well, maybe a bit - I'm going to be more judicious re what swaps I sign up for. Hmmm - it's not quite noon yet on January 1, 2011, and I've already put my name in for the DQS10 (Doll Quilt Swap #10). Sign-ups go until January 10, so if you are interested, this is a great swap - 200 or so enthusiastic quilters with some amazing designs. It is so popular that a lottery is held for the spots available. This is a great group! But, this maybe one of the only swaps I jump into right off the bat in 2011. I've got the 4x6ers postcard group as well, and that one is always fun - an amazing group of women in that one as well!
Since I'm not going to be doing so many swaps, what am I going to be doing? Well, I'm going on a fabric diet - I am going to try and work entirely from my stash this year - with the exception of some thread and batting - my goal is to use up what I've got. I've joined a Flickr group for inspiration on this one. The Scrapbusters Challenge 2011. I see a lot of donation quilts in my future - I've already got a few started as you saw in my last post, but instead of actually finishing off either of these two in 2010, I kept digging into the scrap bag and made another top!
|A few more strips to add, stitch it all together, and then the top will be finished|
And then of course, there are still all those UFOs on my sidebar - I really didnot make a lot of progress on those last year. But, it's a bright new year, full of hope and promise!
What comes next for you?
