I love being a member of the Charming Girls Quilt Club and I can't believe it's already been a year - a fun year!
New year - new club goals. WooHoo! Thank you Kelly for making time to facilitate this fabulous club. :-)
We're not setting monthly goals - now we're setting goals for two months at a time. And, it's not just about quilting and such - it's about so much more Works for me! :-)
July and August Goals
A theme for us is "SELF CARE" as well as quilting and such. I'm going to try to incorporate "self care" into my quilting. I love to sew - I'm a processor - for me it's about doing and staying busy! I find myself holding back from sewing because I get asked on a very regular basis why I sew so much. Why do I have such an urge to make so many quilts? What am going to do with them? Etc. I hold back because I'm made to feel that I have to apologize for having a hobby that I'm truly passionate about. Yes, I know I'm the only one that can control my feelings but I was raised in the "Church of Perpetual Guilt" so ......... (well, you get the idea - LOL). So part of my "SELF CARE" is to work harder at just enjoying everything I love to do without feeling that I have to explain myself. It's all part of my 'seeking acceptance' personality quirk.
I have big plans - huge - really big - I plan to SEW LIKE THE WIND! Ya'll ready for ME? LOL
I will continue to work on my stitchery projects - gotta have something to do while I watch baseball.
I will work very hard to keep up with my Block of the Month projects.
I spent last Saturday pre-cutting some projects. You know I can be very prolific when I spend time precutting.
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Fig Tree Designs for Moda (finished this one yesterday - I'll show you soon)
Bliss - my all time favorite line introduced at Spring Market in May. Swoon!!! :-)
Oz by Senae for Moda (very different for me but I love it)
Botany by Moda (again very different for me but it's perfect for the project)
I almost forgot about Year of the Schnibbles projects for July (Joy Luck) & August - this has been so much fun. Sherri & Sinta have worked so hard and made it so much fun - thank you, Ladies!
I'm really excited about my goals and projects - I hope you'll cheer me on!
Reminder: Don't forget to visit Kelly at Charming Chatter to post a link to your "Between Charming Friends' quilt - it's time for the parade of quilts. WooHoo!
Again, thank you so much for your care and concern for Mr Daze - he's doing great. I tried to reply to all your good wishes and good thoughts from Tuesday and working on yesterday's comments. For some reason some of my responses for bouncing back but please know that I have replied to your comment as long as you weren't set for "no reply".
