Proof that there has been actual-honest-to-goodness sewing going on around here. And I must admit it has been FUN! For far too long, I have felt as if I have just been going through the motions when it came to quilt projects - as evidenced by the abundance of unfinished projects and mounds of fabric strategically pulled and stacked up for a potential project in hopes of bringing on inspiration.
2013 is the year that I am going to reclaim myself, in a way that I will make time to do things - things that I have wanted to do but found it easier to find excuses not to. I have signed up for some classes at the local community college. Two on photography and a brush up of my high school Spanish. If not now, when? I am competitive by nature. Once I determined that I would challenge myself to do this, the rest was easy.
Speaking of a challenge. There was a 'savings plan' graphic floating around Facebook at the start of the year. I thought it would be fun and then promptly forgot about it. Last week Paula - The Quilter shared it again on her blog.
This morning Hubby and I each decided to take on the challenge and ponied up the first four weeks of savings. In just 48 weeks, we will have a nice little stash that we can use for something fun. During his recovery time, we developed quite a little Starbucks habit. Just by cutting that out, we can make this challenge nearly pain-free. And the fun of spending our bounty (in our minds) all year long will enhance the challenge even more. Care to join in?
