Intents for the New Year, 2019

I’m joining in with the #2019PlanningParty with Quilting Jetgirl. Yvonne is a fantastic cheerleader for the online quilting community and we are all lucky to have her rooting for us.

In 2019 I will continue hosting the weekly link up for in-progress Canadian fibre works at The Needle and Thread Network. Perhaps this is the year we make a better button.

I am also joining in with the 2019 Finish-a-long of course, but not as a participant. This year I am one of the hosts!

Global Host 2019 - Handwrought Quilts

But Nicole, what about your actual quilts? Get off the computer with all these cool link-ups and sew something! 

But first some history….

In 2015 I was surprised to find how much I’d spent on quilting. Since then I’ve been mindful of what I bought and have worked hard ever since to reduce my spending. Yay me!

Halfway through 2016 I bought my longarm and I’ve been trying to finish my lingering half-done quilts. Right now I am finishing the binding on the very last of the languishing projects. Extra yay me!

So what now? A few weeks ago I saw a quote in a newsletter from Janine at Uppercase Magazine.

Consider the last few years as just research. Imagine starting anew.” Tavi Gevinson, Rookie Mag [emphasis mine]

Now to play, experiment, and use what I have. Try different styles of quilts. Find my style. Play. Get serious about things. Find the joy in making.

Here’s to me and to you, and to our very best year.
