Happy New Year!
Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my last post of 2011 - I will get back to you individually, I promise; UNLESS of course you are a No Reply blogger, in which case this is your thank you! x).
I just have 3 fabric-related New Year Resolutions to share with you tonight...
1. Be brave enough to use some of my favourite fabrics. All too often I use scraps and pieces I don't care for and then end up wishing I had used something better! Why? Because I am a scared of messing up, wasting my precious FQs and yardage, and fearing that some way better idea will come along! Daft I know, so there will be a concerted effort to use my stash.
2. Use more fabric than I buy! This is a hard one but requires no.1 to be put into action to achieve it. Last year I acquired way more fabric than I can sensibly use, but each piece was chosen with either projects, or pure love, in mind! I have a lot of Flea Market Fancy and some pre-cuts on order for a few months time - so once my latest parcel appears, I think I conveniently forgot to mention that one, I will need to crack on! My Winter Sewing List should help on this one too, but I need to justify 'needing' not just 'wanting' more fabric!
3. Be a bit more adventurous! I stick to what I know, and 'quick hit' quilts, when I really should be going for things that require a bit more thought and time. So this year I will, maybe not go as far as designing my own, but certainly attempt to widen my repertoire!
Have you made any resolutions for 2012?
Tomorrow I am going to link up with Rhonda and the girls for the Finish Along - I've had a long day, so I haven't had the chance to sort myself out yet, but I will get my list written and take the plunge, how about you guys?
And just because it seems to be all talk and no action this evening, here's a glimpse of my last make of 2011, and first gift of 2012...
2012, so far, so good x
