I love when a year ends. It's like wiping the slate clean and giving yourself that fresh new start to all "new" things. We can do this anytime throughout the year, but there is something about taking down the old calender and putting up the new one. It's a time for reflection, waking on January 1st with optimism and tackling all the wonderful things that will come to us. We have to believe that good things will happen...no "what ifs" or "maybes"...just get in that mind set that GREATNESS will happen.
This wonderful quilt was made by Alison Rumble from Kingston-Upon-Hull, UK,
"Eve" toured 3 years with my Quilted Fairie Tales Exhibit.

PURGING and ORGANIZING
I am letting you into my "command center"...well, the place I have one of my computers, where my art supplies are, paperwork and NO...I am not ready to show you the sewing area just yet!
This is my little $25.00 find many years back from a store going out of business. I love this hutch. It's perfect and it makes me happy. Inside are all my art supplies I use to draw,paint and design fabric and patterns. I love the little sign "Imagine" hanging above. The quilt top hanging on the left door is the quilt I will be quilting for ME!!! MY QUILT...all mine!
My books in order but what a mess on top.....must find a place for the fabrics I brought home from Holland.
When I was little, I asked questions. ALOT of questions....all the time. I'm glad I still have that "endearing quality"....giggles. And again...."Mom, why the dorky straight bangs?".I just love how these tiles look like a quilt. I bet you see quilts in everyday life too....now dontcha?
I hope you have enjoyed this year full of color fixes. I can't live without color and I know that it stimulates my senses and makes me want to create.....shall I continue the color fixes?
Happy New Year's my friends.
P.S. I hope you will leave me a comment right here on the blog!
