While I love the satisfaction of finishing a quilt, it isn't the only way to have fun with quilting. Fun also comes from the great outings with girlfriends, shopping expeditions with Grandma, or just sitting in my "thoughtful spot" chair perusing magazines and books. The thrill of the next project waiting just there on the horizon...

Welcome to 2014!
Happy New Year! Are you glad to send 2013 on its way, and eager to welcome 2014? While I don't have any particular issues with all that 2013 held for me, I do welcome 2014. I relish the notion of new beginnings and starting fresh, and all that.
My recovery continues, and I must admit that I am getting a bit stir crazy. My follow-up appointment with the surgeon will be tomorrow, and I am anxious to ask questions. I do still have some pain, and walking challenges me, even small distances. My stamina is reduced, doggone it! Maybe I am impatient, but I would like to know when I can expect to have a return to normalcy.
As for sewing and quilting, I'm making lists, assessing progress on the '13 goals, and planning, planning, planning. I sure hope that my productivity increases in the new year. I spend too much time dithering over what project to work on next. Duh! Just grab something and get to it!!
I'm seeing some interesting quilt-alongs on various blogs and I would love to join in. Maybe this will be the year that I can keep up. I've also pinned a ga-zillion gorgeous quilts on Pinterest, and oh! how I would love to make a few of them! Too many ideas and too little time, right?
As far as housekeeping here on the blog goes, I need to update the tab above for 2013 Finishes. I will retire the goals for 2013 and insert the ones I've identified for 2014.
Lots to keep me busy in this brand new year! Let's begin!
Happy Quilting, Friends!
