I’m so far behind in blogging, that I don’t even know where to start. I feel guilty, so I just keep putting it off. Blogging is supposed to be fun, isn’t it? So I’m moving forward and not going to try to cover November and December.
I had a very nice Christmas, although it was quiet with just Mr. QD and me. I received some lovely gifts –hikey things, stitchy things, and travelly things. Spellcheck does not like any of my adjectives, but I do!
We stayed home for Christmas, and then headed for the shore for a few days afterwards. We had a fun time, photographing Snow Geese, Tundra Swans, White Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, and several Bald Eagles.
We walked on the beach, and we hiked. We toured around a couple of small towns on the Eastern Shore, and found a fabulous new restaurant. We also witnessed two fabulous sunsets over the water.
And now somehow, it’s a new year. I’ve noticed that many bloggers are setting goals this year instead of making resolutions, and I really like that idea. My most important sewing goal is to stop buying fabric, and use what I have! Things have gotten out of control in the QD sewing room, and it’s time to take control. I didn’t even get any fabric for Christmas!
I’ve found a new group to help with my problem. My name is Sunny, and I’m a Fabriholic. There are many of us out there, and I’m finally ready to admit that I have a problem. I’ve been composing a list of all my UFO’s, WIP’s, and projects that have never been started although I bought the fabric. I’ll be posting the list soon,
Pop over to the Elven Garden if you’d like to learn more about Fabriholics anonymous, or perhaps join us? I plan to do another post in the next day or two listing the rules, and publicly stating any changes I might be making for myself.
I’ve also found my new WORD for the new year. Actually, I think it found me. FOCUS. I plan to focus on getting healthier, and while I won’t list specifics here, I do have a specific list. I plan to focus on my home, and making it a nicer place. I plan to focus on sewing more and buying less.
I think that’s enough for tonight. I need sleep as I actually have to get up and go to work tomorrow!
