HELLO! I'm Back . . .

     Happy to have a brand new shiny year ahead of me. WELCOME 2015! The last couple of years; 2013 and 2014 were not good years. But I believe that 2015 is going to be a turnaround year for me.

     I have a new apartment:

     In a new town:

     With a new job.

      I have a lot of creative projects planned and I'm going to be joining some groups in town to meet people. Even though I've lived here nearly a year I haven't really met many people, so it would be nice to get to know people and make some new friends in the community.

     One of the creative projects I signed up for this year was an embroidery swap through the Elefantz stitchery club. Check out the button on the side of my blog for more information. I'm so excited to be participating in this project. I got the name of my swap partner this morning and I've already planned what I'll be sending her. I hope the person who got my name is as excited as I was when I opened my email this morning.

     I'm also going to be participating in The Vintage Kitchen Redwork BOM this year. Check out the button on the side of my blog for more information about this new Free! BOM. I picked up my supplies this morning to make the quilt. I wasn't able to find the main patterned fabric but I have nine months to look for it. So either I'll find the actual fabric, something similar, or something I like that goes well with the design. I found a couple of interesting fabrics at Hobby Lobby today, when I picked up the white block fabric and red embroidery floss. I'm thinking about it but I think I'll keep looking. Part of the fun of a new project is visiting a variety of fabric stores to see if I can find that just right quilt fabric.
