We started out the year with beautiful, cold, clear weather. It was great. When the weather is kind, I feel more kind. I really want this to be a kind year. I am making good progress with the books and the crosswords. It turns out that since I had started a few puzzles in, I had been trying to do Saturday and Sundays instead of Monday and Tuesdays. So, I'm still pretty good at crosswords, I just have trouble counting. This will not be a revelation to any of my people.
I have cleaned out closets, shredded acres of paper and backed up our computer (that was a huge pain in the ass). I'm working on fabric and its relations at the moment. And storage. I'm also having a running conversation with myself that goes something like, "no new storage, just less things" and "I need to go to Ikea". I hate being a slave to stuff.
With that in mind, here's a little stack of fabric I'm super happy about from Sew, Mama Sew. And Bolt has all the voiles which I'm a little crazy over. I've decided to try and finish four quilts this year-- two big projects and two smaller. Did you make any sewing decisions for the year? This is the year that I also conquer (or at least) attempt well fitting pants or shorts.
They are predicting some snow for tomorrow! That would be great. It will justify my keeping all the snow boots, snow pants and back up boots and snow pants. If only I could use the weather to explain penchant for creamers and stationary.
