to a new year

i don't really make resolutions or have any traditions relating to the new year. it's more often than not a let down. this year felt different. i really felt the transition from one year to the next and was thankful for that experience. even though 2006 was a good year for me, it was a hard year and was feeling a little tattered and weary around the edges by the end. i am looking forward to a fresh start, a clean slate. we started by cleaning, finishing/starting things we have been putting off, tidying, organizing, sorting, recylcing/giving away things that no longer makes us happy or suit our lives to make room things that do...everything is it's place and a place for everything. ahhhh, it feels good.

one of those things was making a proper cover for my serger. i have been using the horrid plastic one that it come with since i got it. i kept meaning to make a nice fabric one but kept putting it off.

last year i wrote down my goals and i quite liked that. it was nice to look back and get a glimpse into how i was thinking and feeling a year ago. i think i will do the same this year and post it tomorrow.

all the best for the new year!

You are an inspiration!
I even have a few little sewing projects in mind, after the success of Anthony's little quilt, and I'll let you know how it goes!
I hope this is another good year for you, but one not so hard! xox

p.s. I meant to say how much I love the little stencilled tea cosy, and it has really inspired me!

hello,
happy new year! the new year's clear-out is so wonderful... it really helps me make the mental/ physical transition. a clean slate and last year's baggage tossed away...
