One word

I have seen a couple of different groups talking about choosing a word for the year which reflects something you want to focus on in 2011. I thought I would play along too, and did some thinking about what my word would be. I came up with the word:

MYSELF

To me, it means being more true to myself in my quilting, making time for myself, and organizing myself better so that I have less stress. One of the things I did this weekend for myself was meet Ariane for coffee/tea. We had a great time and she gave me this beautiful mug rug, along with a beautiful cup and saucer.





She is so amazingly talented. She wrapped it up in snowmen fabric, and I love snowmen. She also made a beautiful purse for my daughter which I have to admit I already borrowed yesterday.



I am hoping by focusing on myself, I will better be able to support and help the people I care for. I'll let you know how I do.

Wonderful word. We women are always so busy taking care of others, thinking about others...we need to think of "us" too. This will really do it.

I was thinking the same thing myself. Lucky you to meet Ariane. Neat when two worlds come together isn't it. And she brought you presents too!
