Happy New Year

Happy New Year

One of my goals for 2018 is to blog a bit more regularly. This is my official start. The other goal is to work my scraps and stash, both of these collections are ridiculous.


Some of the Scrap Problem

I 'm kinda following along with Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. she is doing  Scrap Attack 2018  Her process is clearly explained if you go to the link. I already have projects that I need to get done on a time line that I will now be using my scraps for.(scraps mostly and stash probably for background). So I will not be following her process for deciding when to do what, but I will now use scraps which was not my original plan.

Looking at the scheduled list below I will get at least one scrap project done a month if I stay focused.

My goals so far for the year look like this: (those in bold print are now designated scrap/stash projects)

January - 30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days
February - Put a Little Love in Your Quilt
March - H2H 2018 #1
April - H2H 2018 #2
May - H2H 2018 #3
May - Guild Presentation Samples
June - Christmas in July (I hope we're doing that again)

As we can see I am ready to hit this new year running.  As soon as I hit the publish button for this post I'm heading to my room to start cutting some of the scraps for the 30 blocks in 30 days quilt.

As other projects come up and are posted on my blog I will note if I used scraps, stash or new fabric. This will hopefully keep me on both tracks, a couple of postings a month and Scrap work.

Now that I have committed in writing to these not too difficult goals  

I wish you and your families a Happy and Healthy 2018.


  1. You have an awesome stash! Your plans and goal look quite doable with lots of variety which should keep it interesting.

  2. Looks like you are going to continue your usual busy, productive creativity. I always enjoy seeing what you create. Wishing you a happy and healthy 2018!

  3. Well I see you will be busy as usual. I have never seen such an organized stash. I'm trying to get my scraps organized into blocks before they get too bad. Which means I'm not sewing enough or I would have more scraps.
    Have a great new year all the way through. See you soon.
    Hugs and prayers sent your way.

  4. Finding a focus helps a lot with getting things done. Good luck with all your ambitions for 2018.
