Before I finally sit down to sew tonight I feel the need to blog about a few links that have been waiting to be shared.
Box of Crayons - How to end 2014 on a High Note (yes this link has been open on my mini iPad since Dec. 16th!) I love to come up with my word of the year. Several (thousands?) of others do as well. I already knew my word this year is CLARITY but this post really helped me get into the process of thinking forward with action. A post to share because I actually found most of the links in it useful!
Gefilte Quilts - somehow the post sharing her amazing quilt in response to the Charlie Hebdo killings - Quilting Paris - Make Art, Not War found its way to me. Strange because I've pretty much stopped watching the news, but some tragedies still filter through. Since this post she has posted two more quilts that have pulled me into her art. Now I follow her blog and can't wait to see what she creates next!) Check out her adverbs quilt!!
Speaking of creating. . . I have started and need to finish blanket stitching around a new winter table runner. That's a peek in the photo up there! Next to make the pattern - one of my goals for the 1st quarter of the year:)
I've noticed a slow return to browsing blogs. At least for me. Blogs are a more personal voice and space online - not boxed in by ads and other people's stuff vying for attention. Back to basics I guess!
Do you enjoy reading about my blogging discoveries?
Here's one more - Kusherie Egyptian Rice and Lentils - a new regular recipe for us!
