A Fresh Start

By now most of us have shared holidays with family and friends, eaten enough to keep us going well into mid-January, and savored memories of Christmases past.  2014 gives us each an opportunity to reflect on what we have accomplished in 2013 and what the future may hold.  It's like a new beginning; a clean slate; a fresh start.

As you can see, I've made a design change to my blog.  Hope you like it.  I didn't realize it, but I reached 125 posts.  I figured it was time for a change.  They say it is as good as a rest.  (Hmmm, ever wonder who "they" is?)

Speaking of rest, I have not been idle.  I have finished off my Tangled Textiles piece for the MUSIC challenge.  Reveal day is January 12th.  Here is another sneak peak.

I've pieced together my "Coffee Borders" quilt.  I posted about it back in November.  This is what the finished top now looks like.  Just need to sandwich it and FMQ it.

So, I've made another fresh start of tackling my WIPs.  Some are long overdue and I will just need to delve deeper into the boxes to see what else may be lurking about for far too many years.  Each of them deserves to be completed and given a fresh start. 

Till the next time, happy creating.

I love the coffee quilt colours. I have a Tea quilt, which needs sandwiching and quilting
