Reading, sewing.....

I'm almost at the end of my book (Winter Solstice) so I read for a long time yesterday afternoon.  Then I made one more mug rug start.  After that I spent almost 2 hours trying to figure out why my wireless printer wouldn't print.  I finally uninstalled and re installed it and now it works.
2012 is almost over.  I need to make a collage of all of the finishes this year, and there were lots.  Then I need to make a list of what needs to be finished first, etc. in the new year.  I will also count the tops needing quilting.  Several are still waiting for borders.  It sounds like I need to make several lists.

OK-now this is my favorite! Happy New Year with new lists and new projects. You haven't mentioned your eye-praying all is back to normal.

I made my lists out a month ago and then I proceeded to forget it. My only goal is to sew this next year. Finishes we will see about. Hope you get to all you lists. Chris

Chris said...

You sound like me - I think I have a book of lists! :) Happy New Year - wishing you a year filled with good health - and lots of fun quilting!

How funny, I was making a list of finished projects/quilts and a list of future plans for 2013. This time of year is good for reflection and direction. I'm going to check on the book Winter Solstice. It sounds like one I would enjoy reading.

I plan on doing an end of the year list also but haven't gotten started with it

As I geek I can tell you the uninstall-reinstall route is often the simplest, most painless way of fixing problems like that.

Happy New Year,
Lynne

I know you have finished a LOT of projects, list or no list...and I know you will do a lot in 2013. Happy New Year.

While I do have a few projects I would like to finish in the next year, I really feel like this will be the year I start more then I finish lol. I do need to look back and figure out what I did get finished this year though. And what new things I started, and what will be carryovers from previous years lol. Maybe I will work on that this week.

That's a really pretty mug rug. Love those fabrics.

Glad you got the printer figured out. I hate those techy problems.

And you even did some sewing...another mug rug as vibrant as the others. When I looked at all of them together yesterday (Saturday) I thought all those mug rugs would make an awesome quilt. Even though that was not their purpose.

I counted my tops waiting to be quilted. Many did not have backs! I went to a year end sale and bought several pieces some at 50 percent off and some at 75. Now I have to start quilting some of the 18!

I love the colors and liveliness in the fabrics of your mug rugs - what fun! Good luck making your lists; I hate to tell you how many lists I have in my sewing room, the kitchen, the car, and my classroom - yikes...
BTW, how is your eye doing?
Leslie :-)

I too, have started those lists! Just getting caught up on my blog reading, took a 7 day tech break. I love the 20 log cabins you stitched over the holidays, wishing you a very Happy and Healthy 2013. Thaks for all the inspiration you share on your blog!

Your quilts are amazing! I have a question to ask you about construction of a colorful Barn Raising Quilt. (I have a photo). I can't seem to figure out how to achieve the color placement. I tried following your e-mail prompt, but it didn't work right. Might you have a moment to e-mail me, I'd be very grateful. I just know you can solve it with the experience and talent that you have. Happy I found and joined your Blog. (2nd year of quilting, 13 quilts finished in 2012)

I am so happy to have discovered your blog!! The few pages of pictures I've looked at so far are a veritable feast for the eyes!
And - Winter Solstice is one of my very favorite books! I enjoyed reading it . . . and then enjoyed listening to the audiobook . . . and will no doubt read it again in a year or so!!!
I'll be back!
