My word for 2014 is Transform. I want to transform my fabric and UFOs into finished quilt tops, and then some of those tops into actual quilts. I want to transform the workroom into a functional, streamlined place to work; at the moment it's a bit disorganised and cluttered. I want to transform the garden into an easy to maintain area. The bookshelves need to become an ordered array of resources I can easily find. Everywhere I look I see things that could do with a bit of transformation. All those makeover shows on TV rely on Transforming the old stuff into a wonderful new creation, and that's always an exciting thing to be involved with. I hope I can get suitably enthusiastic about transforming my home and garden and possessions too.
I certainly transformed the 8 blocks of this UFO. I'm so glad I didn't give up on them, because I had the best time making new ones, and putting the whole top together.
enders, and occasionally I'll sew several of them in one go, but I don't want to race through them. I'm less than halfway, but there are still lots of nine-patches and pieces, it will be a while before I have to cut more. It's not like me to be patient with a project, but I have to admit it's much more relaxing to sew things slowly, instead of madly racing to be finished.
