dreams and wip for 2015

 Well now before January has totally slipped by
thought I should share my hopes for this year.
My list of 'want to make' is somewhat short especially as I already have one 
under the belt!
However projects like the one below
just creep on in.
 This flying geese project is just a few hours old.
Flying geese are very much on my radar for 2015
they are such a joy to make,
and when kind friends send you beautiful fabrics
its so easy to set off on a new journey!
 I'm quite in love with the idea of marrying up 
the vintage sheets from AdaBea with the beautiful *Molly Hatch fabric
that Mary sent me.
*Ask Mary aka MollyFlanders for availability.

2015 projects
1 flying geese curtains for my sewing room (above)
2 epp red and white star Christmas quilt
3 plaid and denim flying geese quilt

1 Irish chain (top completed last week!)
2 Orphan block 
3 Liberty clamshell

Quite a neat little list really,
though I'm sure there will be more added!
On a personal front I'm hoping for a less anxiety filled year,
for this I am learning to run
which I have found wonderful for my mind
and for positive thinking!
Looking forward now to cracking on with it all
Thanks for your enduring generosity.

but always feel like I get way more in return!!
So a big thank you to..
 Mary aka MollyFlanders
 Susan aka Patchwork n Play

optimism and a new year

 Hello dear readers and a happy new year!
Its been a while hasn't it?
I've been lost in the world of instagram,
which I know annoys some,
so I shall try to stop by here at least once a week.
To be truthful I needed a break from the blog,
I do find blogging sucks up so much of my time,
and with instagram I can find more time to be creative
with a needle and less keyboard action.
I feel 2015 is a year for optimism,
I've languished too long in the land of 'what ifs'.
So less self deprecation
and a little more unashamed cheering!
