We're only halfway through January but I'm making good on my goal to get new projects started beyond the thinking/planning phase while I still have my new year momentum going strong. I happily repurposed the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino from a failed vest knitting attempt and am now working away on a new Umaro blanket that will hopefully be large enough to add to my baby gift stash. I'm also trying to get in the habit of using my sewing machine (and growing fabric stash) more regularly. I don't have a sewing room and having all my supplies packed away in the guest room closet has always made it a bit of a chore to get everything out and then put it all away before dinner. But not this year! Have you heard of the Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt-a-long on Instagram? I'm using it to dig into my many bags of scraps and work on a mini quilt that's been on my mind for a while. It's been great motivation, thanks Ginny!
One other new project was updating my blog comments to a new system this week. Hopefully this will make it easier for commenters to leave a quick note and also for me to have an email address from commenters that I can actually reply to. I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
What have you been working on this year?
