I do however reflect on how I can be more at peace with myself and take action where I can. Saying NO is a big one for me and making time for the treasured and true and letting go of what doesn't nourish me.
I have had such a wonderful year stitching without pressure now that deadlines are no longer a part of my life.....slow stitching has been a joy...and continues to be so.
I have been having a very nice relaxing time over the Christmas break, being with family, reading and working away on my 1797 Revisted quilt.....no rushing for me!
I enjoyed the NO FUSS STITCH ALONG last year so much (even if I got a very late start) that I am joining in again.
We are stitching another lovely Leanne Beasley design from her book Road trip.
I am using the same fabric range I used for Ruth's quilt because I had a jelly roll and it requires lots of 2 1/2 inch squares. I didn't use a lot of fabrics in the jelly roll from this range for Ruth's quilt so it should hopefully look different. Plus I love it and want to use it up!
I am tweaking the postcard designs to suit our travelling journeys and I am making it for our "chateaux 'de wheels"......eventually. So some tracing has occurred and threads purchased. I have gone for regular DMC as I figure it may take awhile and I want to be able to obtain more when I need it.....especially if I am away in my van.
Excited! I am also looking forward to working more on my "WINGS AND PRETTY THINGS " with my friends Fiona and Lorel....it's also a no pressure project. My new Mantra...
I would like to thank all of you who read my words, leave comments or just visit my blog. Also the other bloggers out there that I visit, some of whom are now dear friends. You constantly inspire me with your creativity, resourcefulness, kindness and friendship. Women sharing....... I love seeing others sharing their lives and experiences often from all over the world. World leaders need to stitch and blog....We may then have a chance for world Peace lol!
Anyway I wish you a year of good health, happiness, creativity and peace.
Ohhh and be gentle and kind in and with Nature.
