Plans for 2019

I like to sew.

A lot!

Sewing brings me joy and keeps my creative mind engaged and happy.

Being a multitasker, I often have more than one project going. My design wall is currently home to my unfinished VFW Double Wedding Ring

My Double Wedding Ring Quilt

and

a Storm Star Quilt.

My Star Storm Quilt

Both are awaiting quilting.

My smaller design board displays the building blocks for one my latest improv quilts.

Red and Teal, A Challenge, AP # 95

This is another in-progress art piece. This one was started during a Heidi Parkes class I took at Blue Bar Quilts. Here’s a sneak peek.

Central Park, AP # 96

In multiple plastic storage tubs are other items waiting for my attention. Some have been started while others look the same way they did when I brought them home.

During 2019 I’ve made a personal goal to work-on and finish as many projects as possible. Many of my unfinished items have been gathered into tubs. Those tubs will be taken to a February quilting retreat. I know that I have packed way more projects than I could ever dream of completing but that doesn’t upset me. Having more than necessary gives me the opportunity to adjust my focus if I get bored.

Even though I have a very long list of items to complete it didn’t stop me from adding several more. So far this year I have added:

Victoria Findlay Wolfe Off the Cuff Block of the Month

A Different Box of Crayons Bricolage Block of the Month

An EPP project

and, last but not least a block of the month challenge (see my Red and Teal photo above) with one of my friends.

2019, like all other years, will be an amazing adventure!

  4. Hi Cindy! Great projects decorating your walls! Especially this time of year, having so much color is cheery. I think we’re on the same page for 2019, maybe just the same page in life, feeling like so many things have been started, now’s the time to finish! Looking forward to our time at the retreat.
