New Year, New Projects

Hi everyone:

Happy New Year! 

Yes, I know that January 1 was a few weeks ago, but, as is often the case, I'm a bit behind. I've found myself under-motivated and distracted lately due to some family issues. Everything is great now, but I'm finding it hard to "get back on the horse", so to speak (actually, getting back on the horse would be easy as I love horseback riding). It's much easier to work on patterns and do blog posts when you do it consistently. If you're away from it for awhile, I find that it takes a bit to get back to work, but, as Oliver Wendell Holmes said, "He has half the deed done who has made a beginning", and I'm determined to make a beginning! 

I'm determined to take all of the pattern ideas that I have been working on and finish and publish them. I have several embroidery patterns, some stuffed toys and many quilt patterns, just dying to make their appearance. I also have book reviews that you'll be seeing on my blog soon as well as some giveaways.

I didn't make any New Year's resolutions for 2012, however I've resolved to do better this year. Whether it's exercising, creating patterns or finishing UFO's, I'm going to try to do better this year and accomplish more. 

I hope you're working on your 2012 resolutions and would love to hear what you hope to accomplish this year.

Looking forward to being able to purchase that Poinsettia pattern. I love it! I can't wait to see the prototype in person. Keep designing, you are an inspiration to us all.
