President’s Message Michele Barnard “If I had my way, I’d remove January from the calendar altogether and have an extra July instead.”
– Roald Dahl
I looked at my little part of the newsletter from last year, and…not much has changed!
Despite my dislike of January weather, I do like the illusion of a fresh start. I accidentally found my “what I would like to accomplish this year” list from 2021, and to my surprise, despite not having looked at it during the year, I’d actually gotten much of what was on the list done. There is a certain power just in writing a list. This year, I’m going all in and making a vision board.
Also from last year – organizing the stash! This year I signed up for a de-cluttering challenge at Just Get It Done Quilts: https://www.justgetitdonequilts.com/declutterchallenge
It’s free, so join me if your sewing room could use a little help.
Also from last year – finishing UFOs! I signed up for the Stashbusters UFO Challenge (although I still need to find a couple of fat quarters to send in for sign-up) and plan to actually start making a list (remember the power of a list?) of the UFOs I have in the New Year.
And last but not least – Challenges! I loved my mini-group challenges this year and what I got done in Project Quilting. The New Year for Project Quilting starts in January at https://kimlapacek.com/project-quilting
Unfortunately, COVID is still hanging on from last year. This year, I’m happy my family is vaccinated
and boosted, and that my youngest can (so far at least) go to school in person.
I wish you all the best in this coming year, and always.
Yours in Quilting,
