I woke up this morning so energized and looking forward to 2015! Normally, I don't do resolutions. I like to change things as I go. Why wait for a certain day to do this or that to make yourself a better person? Just do it. Besides, I'm not that bad as I am. Just sayin'. That being said, I am aware of how much room I have for improvement.
So, I went shopping and spent a little money on myself. That was tons of fun! There are all kinds of sales on Jan. 1! I don't usually leave the house so, this was news to me. I bought a frame to finish my Quilty Stitches project! It's a little crooked and I couldn't get out the mysterious pink stains... If you don't look too hard at it, it looks great. You know, at running gallop, someone would think it was perfect. And, that's all I aspire to.
I like to imagine my mom as the bird. It's like I'm bullying her into these cute situations. For April, she gets to wear this great bunny hat and tend her pretty eggs.
Here's the difference between me and my mom, vs. me and my kids:
Me: "Mom, put on this bunny hat! It's going to be awesome."
Mom: "No, I'll look like a moron."
My kids: "Mom, take off the bunny hat, you look like a moron."
You see the difference there?
So, then there's my newest project. My friend Vicki R. gave me the cutest panel and some companion fabric for Christmas! She gets me:) It's all about cupcakes and being a princess.
One of the problems with working with a panel is that some of my letters are being shaved off. Nothing too horrible so far.
Here's what I have so far. Obviously, it's a work in progress.
I start layoff on Jan 5. I'm so excited! If I can keep myself focused, I'm going to finish up lots of projects, rearrange my sewing room, and get a handle on my life. In between the loads of doctor appointments we have scheduled. And, you know, feeding the hoards.
