My planner arrived a few weeks ago but I haven't had much time to look at it since I am feverishly working to finish up holiday gifts for my family and friends. Still, I can’t help thinking ahead to what I will sew in the new year. Thankfully Yvonne AKA Quilting Jet Girl is hosting the 2017 Planning Party, which gave me one more excuse to dream a little more deliberately!
I just signed up for The Bee Hive Quilts hosted by Alyce of Blossom Heart Quilts. This is my first ever sewing bee/swap. It just seemed like a fun way to ease into exchanging blocks with other quilters and the choice of blocks was just irresistible. I'm just now meeting my swarm and I think it is going to be a lot of fun!
And speaking of Blossom Heart Quilts, she also just announced her 2017 Sampler Quilt Along and it involves paper piecing, which I absolutely I love!!! So I might just need to do that one too.
And Molli Sparkles is hosting The Honey Pot Bee where a group of wonderfully talented makers will be Queens and help people like me, a Princess, discover block tutorials and patterns. Molli said everyone gets a tiara, so I'm definitely in!
And last, but certainly not least, the 52 Weeks with the Quilter's Planner hosted by Gnome Angel. After completing the 100 Days 100 Blocks she hosted I'm hoping I can handle one block per week. And have you seen the blocks in the Quilter's Planner. They look amazing!
If that wasn't enough to keep me busy for awhile, my Mom has a birthday coming up and of course I want to make a quilt for her. And I want to continue and finish my 100 Days 100 Blocks Quilt. And finish the Summer Sampler. And keep sewing on my Modern Makers Club blocks. Along with a few (dozen) other quilts I have started, dreamed of starting, bought fabric for, etc. And I'm sure there are a bazillion other things I have yet to discover that I want to do. I am not even going to mention the dress/skirt/pants patterns I have and want to try. There will NEVER be enough time, but at least I will always have something to keep me busy!
And one more goal. I want to blog more. Maybe throw my name in for the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers? Guess we'll see....
What are your creative plans for 2017? I'd love to hear about them. Thanks for stopping by!
