Out with the old..

2013, you brought immense joy.
I got a super cute baby:

A beautiful vacation with friends:
The elation of finding my book on the shelf at Barnes & Noble (and in the stacks at my local library):
And plenty of time to spend with the ones I love.
Thank you, 2013.

For 2014 I've got some plans, big and small.
The one I'm most excited about is moving my sewing room from a poorly lit upstairs bedroom to the nice and bright first floor laundry room (pictures coming shortly!).  I lose about half the space, but the location should allow me to spend more time creating.. fingers crossed.
I'm also planning to start up the Monday Morning Star Count again (an EPP progress linky party, like we did last summer), from next Monday.  Here's what I've been working on..  
It's going so slowly!  I really need the encouragement of some like-minded EPPing friends.

And if anyone wants to get even more EPPing done, please consider registering for the Greek Island Quilt Retreat.  I'd love to meet up and sew with some of you next June!

I hope 2014 brings all of us just what we need, and the attentiveness to appreciate it when it arrives. 
Happy New Year everybody~


  1. I love hexies and octies!! Most of my most recent epp hexies are 1/2" . A good project to have on hand as we do tour about a bit! I'll follow you with great interest.

  2. Happy new year, thanks for a great year of blogging. May 2014 bring you all good things xx

  3. Happy New Year! It's going to be a good one!

  4. Happy New Year! I got your book for Christmas! :)

  5. Excited about more Monday Morning Star Counts! I get SO much more done with that incentive! (Seriously, I think I've only sewn a grand total of 36 hexagons since summertime!) Happy new year!

  6. Why no tuse both rooms and have more space ;-)... storage of things you don't daily need upstairs and the real works downstairs ;-)...

  7. 2013 was a banner year for you! Wishing you more of the same in the New Year. I think you will enjoy sewing closer to the kitchen, if you just keep a few things upstairs to burn up the extra calories you will consume.

  8. Happy new year! I look forward to the MMSC again and will forward a link to this post to my friend who is just starting an epp project.
