Over the last couple of weeks, I've whiled away many hours thinking about this New Year. To be specific, my brain focused on future goals, long term activities, what to start and which bandwagons to jump on.
I came up with some very good ideas: one mini quilt per week; an open challenge to other quilters to join me in reducing the size of our quilter's butts; a block a week; even debated finding childcare and joining the ranks of employees at my LQS. All of these ideas were rejected.
So what do I resolve? Since I always break my New Year's resolutions then logically I should resolve to gain as much weight as humanly possible. This is a tactic that has worked before. Do I have any quilting goals? I am committed to making one wedding quilt and the rest of my plans are open.
Today I did the one thing that refires my imagination and desire to create: I changed the stacks.
I usually keep my stacks on top of my 1877 Singer treadle. In the house changing and rearranging this past month my antique machine has been all but buried, therefore these stacks were spread out on my desk to peruse.
Because I am a seamstress, first and foremost, and my babies need clothing.
It's not much progress to start off my personal kid's clothing week challenge, but a little is better than nothing.
So here it is: I resolve to do a little every day. Maybe this will change the way some other junk is stacked in my life, too.
