Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and that everyone had a great Christmas. We spent 7 days in Rockport, Texas enjoying the time sitting on the balcony of our Suite and enjoying time on the Pier just watching the Pelicans and fishing boats. I do believe that starting Monday all of South Texas had converged on little ole’ Rockport! We left one day early! The weather was warm (too warm for me) but then again this is a La Nino season and due to the lack of rain for the last couple of months, it will be a horrific Cedar Fever Season! The count today is 28,000 plus. During this time when the count gets this high I cannot get out and walk – boo hoo!
Here are my finishes for 2021 which consists of my UFO’s from 2001 thru 2020, I either finished the tops or finished quilting older quilt tops. A total of 21 UFOs! Stars Around the Garden, and buttons for Dresden Heaven are ready to complete. If we had not taken the 2 vacations in the last 40 days I would have been completely finished with the last 2 UFOs. But that is the way the cookie crumbles when one is ‘de-stressing’.
I have not decided on my 2022 projects, but I know I will be doing Cross Stitch, Knitting, Embroidery, Hand Quilting (hopefully) and piecing some new quilts, but not sure yet which ones and when. I do know that I WILL NOT set any self inflicted deadlines for anything nor do anything that has a hard deadline. I plan on having a stress free 2022 just doing what I feel like doing each day. (But I have to remember that I am not in control of life). Of course I will try to set a few goals once I start on some of my projects, but nothing like I have been doing in the past 20 years of quilting.
My Longarm Quilter is ready to take 8 quilts off my hands which leaves me about 10 to quilt. Evidently there will be a lot of binding done this year. I do hope to feel up to the task of working on my longarm this year and quilting some of the backlog of quilts. !
Again, have a wonderful New Year and enjoy and love life!
