One Word

I have been doing the one word for the year, for the past two years and I have decided to continue this year. I found that my last two words, Myself, and Breathe really helped so I took some time to make a decision. I had it narrowed done to two choices and then made the final decision.


 I was worried that for 2013 I needed to have a focus, or join a lot of different groups. I decided instead to relax, and enjoy quilting for its many stress free benefits, though it can be stressful at times. I also decided to relax in life as well, and focus on the things that I can do and change, and try to let go of some of the rest. It has been a week and it has been working though nothing is ever perfect.


Cosmetic bag

On a lighter note, I made this cosmetic bag for my niece for Christmas. She absolutely loved it, which surprised me a bit. The bottom fabric was used as the border for the quilt I gave her last year at Christmas. I also need to give a huge thank you to Darlene of Quilting Daze and  Cheryl of Polka Dots & Rick Rack . I participated in the Christmas Throughout the Year, and as well as managing to make 3 scarfs, and a cosmetic bag the week before Christmas, I also got a quilt done, and some smaller projects that I made throughout the year. It all helped to make Christmas less stressful for me. I am linking to Linky Tuesday hosted by Freemotion by the River.
