Well HELLO 2013!!!
Sure to be a great year, don't you think?
Time for fresh starts in all ways!!
Of course today means fresh CREATIVE starts!
On the quilt front...
I pulled, pressed and began cutting for this quilt.
I've always admired it ever since I saw Minick & Simpson's version quite a few years ago.
So it's going to be my next quilt!
And I'm really going to challenge myself in this new year
and step out of my comfort zone in many ways!
Today I started by stepping out of my KNITTING comfort zone!
I'm going to tackle knitting SWEATERS this year!
I cast on for this sweater today!
I've decided to start with the sleeves.
I'm using absolutely gorgeous yarn from
And I'm excited, scared and yet somehow a little
confident in my ability to actually
knit a sweater! So we'll see how that goes!
And I almost talked myself out of starting a new sampler
after I looked at my WIPs today.
But...it wouldn't be New Year's
a new stitching start.
So....I pulled out an oldie but goodie
that I've had kitted up for
probably 8 years!
Birds of a Feather - Peace
I'm using my own mish-mash conversion of overdyed threads
on what I believe is Lakeside Linens Pearled Barley.
This one shouldn't languish too long in the stitching basket!
And I really do plan
those WIPs this coming year!
What creative things did YOU begin today?
