Happy New Year!

Hello 2014, we have much to anticipate!

I am so looking forward to the challenges this year has to offer

I intend to live by a word again, 
last year my word was Focus, 

and looking back, I was pretty focused. 

so this year, I've thought long and hard about what word I will be inspired by

and its been difficult!

Create, its a good word, one I can relate to, apply to all areas 
Possibility, another good word
Inspire,  Grow.

What word will you be keeping in your thoughts this year?  

I'm still trying to decide, so in the mean time I'll leave you with one of the last finishes of 2013.


this is one of my old tops, and was pulled from the pile to become a gift for my partners' mother,
simply quilted, bound and gifted, and I'm pleased to say, she was thrilled!

So to you all I wish you health, happiness and joy for the year ahead.

I don't think I am a one word person, but I am sure you will find the right one for you. The quilt is lovely, what a great present.

I love this pattern, I have a very special version of it, first quilt my mom & I pieced and hand quited together after I pulled her headlong into the world of fabric addiction some 12yrs ago now. A delightful gift which i'm sure will be loved and cherrished for years to come.

You were certainly very focussed last year, you got so much done!

FOCUS would be a great word for me thisyear, chaotic as I can be ...
All best wishes for you.
I was very sad not to see you on the list of teachers in London thisyear (Fat Quarterly); will you come?

Happy New Year Trudi! I think I could do with more than one word ;-) focus is a good one but also create (more) and health, happiness.. Love the quilt, brillian colour choices xx

Great to finish 2013 with your own quilt. Hope you choose a really great inspiration word for the year.

I love flying geese! Good luck choosing your word xx

Nicky said...

Think I'll need more than one word -

Don't start - FINISH!

Two sides to a coin I'm continually struggling with!

Good luck with yours!
