Our 2011 year is drawing to a close....

Here we are, on December 31 already.  Can you believe it?  Another calendar year has passed us by, and I hope you've had more joys than sorrows in it.  I'm sitting in my quilt studio as I write this, and looking around at the fruits of my labors for the year.  Obviously, I bought WAY too much fabric this year.  One of my new years resolutions is to not buy any fabric next year ("HA!  Fat Chance!"  Yes, I hear you), but rather use more of what I have.  I may need to seek a waiver of that resolution during late April, though, when I travel to Paducah, KY.  :)  

For myself, I'm pleased with what I got done this year, I will call it productive.  There are so many things I learned from watching and observing others, things that have planted seeds of ideas in my mind for things I want to try in the future, and new directions that I want to go with my quilting art.  I'm excited about those, and I hope you, too, have been observing and thinking in similar ways.  It's how we grow as quilt artisans, forever looking for new avenues to explore.  

I'm wishing you all the best for 2012, and thanks for following my adventures through this year.  I'm looking forward to discovering new things and hope you are, too.

  1. Eddie, OH...I KNOW you have done plenty for the year...your own quilting, your 'real' job and what all you've done for the quilter's guild. So, not to worry about that unused fabric...those fabrics will find a way into your quilts at one time or another. Just continue to enjoy what you do and thank you for what you do for those of us in the guild. I hope you and Melissa have a delightful New Year!! pat
