Happy New Year!
Happy New Year everyone!
The first morning coffee in the new year has been had – and it tasted so good!
I am sitting in a quiet house – the love of my life is still sleeping – and from my window I can see the day is waking up, slowly.
How did 2016 go?
It was a year filled with all kinds of things – laughter and tears, hopes and fears, victories and losses.
I set out on a personal journey of living with less and make more room for myself in Quilt Corner. I also had a quite ambitious goal of finishing more than I started quilt and craft wise.
I must admit I have not counted to close, but from what I can see ( and feel ) I did succeed.
The photo above is just 9 of my many favourites of the year.
From being a quilter through and through for many years, I have taken up embroidery, crochet and knitting again too, and all put joy and sparkles into my life and my days.
My goals for 2017 are as follows:
Keeping on keeping on with my living with less project.
Keeping on enjoying quilting, embroidery, knitting, crochet and more.
Do something that makes my heart sing, every day.
At the beginning of the year 2016 I decided to start saving the spools I emptied – I was very inspired by my friend B.
It was a fun project, that ended up with all these spools, all in all 3100 meters of thread.
You might say that some of these spools may not be full from the beginning, which is right, and I will say that in addition to these empty spools I have also used from other spools not yet emptied + a lot of already filled bobbin spools + my favorite hand piecing thread and my applique / English paper piecing thread.
My glass jar is now empty, waiting for the empty spools of 2017!
I hope and pray 2017 will be a good year, for all of us!
