A New Year
For many people a list of New Year's resolutions accompanies the start of a new year. Not for me. I gave up making resolutions many years ago. However, I keep a list of goals throughout the year. For some time now I have had a condensed list written on a yellow sticky note, attached to my computer. On it are three words:
1. Studio (reminding me to spend some time in my studio each day that I am home.
2. Exercise (reminding me to move every day). This is a tough one for me to stick to!
3. Cook. I've been doing very well on this one for at least a month now. The idea is to get back in the habit of cooking, and as a result I will eat better. The challenge will come when I start travelling again later this month.
As I mentioned in my last post, I'm celebrating three occasions this month: 1) one year of blogging, 2) four years of being a full-time quilt artist and teacher, and 3) nine years since I began teaching and selling hand-dyed fabrics. So to honour the occasion I have a blog give-away. The first person to post a comment in response to this post will receive a meter of hand-dyed fabrics in your choice of colour/s. In other words, you tell me what you want and I will custom-dye it for you this week. I'll be in my basement dungeon dyeing a fair bit this week.
If there is any particular topic you would like to see me post about, any questions you might have, please ask. I want this blog to be useful and educational.
All best wishes for 2012!!
