Happy New Year every one! A very quiet night here in the valley, I think I heard one firework all night. I don't follow a lot of the traditions of bringing the New Year, just one - open the door to let the old year out and bring the new year in. Hey, we are 50 degrees, so some refreshing air into the house was a blessing in itself. 2022 was a rough year for me and I am glad it is over - new hope for 2023.
My big finish for the end of the year, well not a finish but next on our Guild color challenge. Dark Green was the new 'crayon' color for the month. The new Doxie with Moxie is done and joined his pals in the project tote.
The top made from the scrappy whites in the bag and color scraps from gifted baggies is ready for it's borders. I have the scrappy white inner border ready and will pull color scraps for the last border as I reorganize a couple of fabric totes for the year. It's 50" x 62" right now, so it does need borders to bring up to single bed size.
I need to sort those totes as I want to make a couple of projects in this issue (vol 3 no.11) amd I know there is 'in my stash' useable for them.
I haven't really thought of a 'year's motto' to work 2023 (I did so bad on last year's), but I know I have a LOT of quilts that need quilting. So while in the reorg and sorting, I will pull for borders (if needed for a finish), backing, bindings - and get things moved to the finish line. I will quilt myself, quilt by check, or even pass on tops for someone else to play with, BUT those totes need to be emptied this year.
I, also, have some commission work that will be coming in now so that will be my NEW play.
Blessings for the New Year,
