Today was a productive day for me. I got all the Christmas decorations packed away. That was a four hour project! Then my daughter and I got to work on sorting my fabric scraps.
After we sorted by colour, which took about two hours, I sorted by colour value. I also separated out all the fabrics that would be good for a man's quilts (ie. no florals!) so that I can sew this quilt pattern:
here in her Etsy shop if you are interested.
This quilt will be a Quilt of Valour for a Canadian soldier/veteran that I know who is going through a hard time with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
This brings me to my "word of the year" for 2014. Many bloggers are picking a word and I have chosen the word "Compassion". In relation to that word I hope to sew at least two Quilts of Valour this year.
In addition to that my goals for this year include:
1. Putting a serious dent in that huge scrap collection in the top photo.
2. Stocking Canadian fabrics by Northcott in my shop that are "for a cause".
3. Finishing all the quilts I said I was going to finish in 2013 that I didn't!
Here's hoping I have success with all of these.
Happy New Year! May you have a successful year as well!
