New Year's resolutions

I don’t really have any, do you?! I just plan to have as good a time as I can, spending time with loved ones, friends, enjoying good food, the occasional tipple and of course a lot, an awful lot of patchwork and quilting, yesss!

What I have always loved at the beginning of a new year is that brand new diary, putting fresh ink in my fountain pen and writing in those special dates first, birthdays, wedding anniversaries etc.  The next dentist appointment always comes last for some reason …..

The Americans have very many special days in their calendar, some of my favourites: National Margarita Day (February 22), National Cheesecake Day (July 30) and National Fried Chicken Day (July 6)!  This is all bit of fun but today I came across one that made a lot of sense to me:

Visit YourLocal Quilt Shop Day!

January 24 appears to be the day, but let’s face it, any day will do. Let’s support our quilt shops this year, let’s give this economic crisis a good kick up the old ‘behind’ and buy a bit here and there if you can as a thank you to the people in the quilt shops for always helping us out, supplying us with cups of coffee, tea and sympathy, cookies, fun and inspiration!

Always room for a few more fq’s !

First bee date was at mine last week, I thought a few bubbles where in order, to make those stitches go more fluently…

A bit more on quilting next blogpost, did not get a lot done over het Xmas period and right now my evenings are taken up by watching this with DH and DD, all 20 hours of it:

Missed it when it was on tv (too late in the evening for us), but it is great!

‘See’ you soon,

  1. Ja heerlijk zo'n nieuwe lege agenda. Nu maar hopen dat we aan het eind van het jaar mogen terugkijken op heel veel leuke dingen die erin staan. Lijkt me een spannende serie die jullie kijken op DVD, ik ken 'm niet, komt vast ook door het late tijdstip.

  2. Een prima idee "Visit YourLocal Quilt Shop Day!"
    En die serie lijkt mij ook wel wat; eens kijken of de videotheek hier in de buurt m heeft;))

  3. Heerlijk blanco nieuw jaar. Mijn steekjes werden heel vloeiend!

  4. Heerlijk blanco nieuw jaar. Mijn steekjes werden heel vloeiend!

  5. I had no idea we had fried chicken day...now is my kind of day to celebrate!!! LOL!!!

  6. Heerlijk zo'n nieuw dagboek en dan met vulpen! Jammer genoeg zie je daar weinig mensen meer mee schrijven. Maar hier nog wel hoor, zeker bij mooie documenten.
    Fijne dag!
