Well it’s that time again- the holidays are over, I’m putting away the decorations and even the holiday fabric goes back into its bin for another year. But we’ve got some great things going on and I’m excited about 2018 and all it has to offer.
The biggest news is we’re moving! I can’t wait to get started in our new meeting space at the Sheen Center. I think it will be a great fresh start. And we’ll have a new neighborhood to explore and get to know.
And we have a full events calendar lined up. I can’t wait for all the fun stuff. Big thanks to everyone who’s contributed ideas, feedback and of course to Cynthia for doing all the legwork and actual, you know, work of arranging them. Awesome stuff.
How are your projects going? Do you make new year’s resolutions for quilting? I vowed to finish three quilts by the end of 2017; I finished one, got a good start on a second by the end of the year (now completed) and am almost finally done with that third UFO. Of course my vow to not start any new projects until those three were finished fell by the wayside. There’s always so many quilts I want to make.
One of the funnest things for me lately has been turning on a longtime friend to quilting. She took her first lessons and is having fun, and it’s been really hard for me to not overload her patterns, ideas, fabric, all that. Having a new quilting buddy might be even better than having a new quilt.
So let’s get things started in February and see where the new year leads us!
