Its also time to be realistic and admit to failures so that I can strive to do better this year - yes, like work out for say 2 weeks! haha But for real, my sewing adventures turned out better than expected (oh wait until I show you some pics) as I completed more projects than I have ever completed in a year. So, for 2011 I have a longer list of projects to begin (and finish) including more quilts. To go along with that I really want to do more free motion quilting, its just so much fun and just "freeing", if that makes sense.
Now, for those failures. Blogging. I am just amazed at how the many many bloggers out there make it look so easy and effortless. But let me tell you, I have great respect for those that are able to keep up on a regular basis. Blogging has been my funk spot. I would love to hear how you are able to balance the whole working on a project and blogging balance.
Ok, and to show that I haven't been completely slacking on the sewing front, here are some picutres of quilts that I worked on for Christmas presents this year for my neices and nephews. I was really excited about them and as goes with quilts, spent days on them. Of course, as goes with me, I didn't start them until about 3 weeks before Christmas ~ did I mention, my goal is to work on Christmas projects in July this year!
Enjoy the pics!
