I'm A-Sewing!

I know - ANOTHER update! And I missed my anniversary - Happy Birthday, little craft blog!

One of my Goals for 2008 (I refuse to make resolutions this year) is to give away the things that don't matter to focus more on the things that do. So - goodbye private practice, goodbye extra work opportunities, goodbye PhD...hello my family, my home, my work, my health, my sewing....and these funky monkeys!

This is the very very beginning's of a quilt for my nephew, Tommy B. I purchased the charm squares from the Craft Show in Melbourne and they've been looking for a home every since. Other planned projects for 2008 include:
  • Finishing the cowboy quilt for Harry-Pant's;
  • An Amy Butler quilt for Zoe;
  • A nappy bag for Sarah;
  • A quilt for my godson, Conor; and
  • A mystery project.
I love the thought of making quilts again! And all "using what I have" from my fabric stash (as much as possible). I've been eagerly following and LOVING the Beautiful:Life series in Next Magazine and as such, this year, I am going to TRY to live by the mantra:

I already have everything I need to be content...

Damn shame about these then, isn't it?!?
