Ack! I forgot Thursday was coming up, and didn't have a post in prep! Linking up with Not Afraid of Color with a short post :)
I like the promise of a new year. New habits, new mindsets, the opportunity to think about what worked over the past year and what didn't. This year, I bought the "52 Lists Project" book and will use that to focus, I hope. We'll see how far I get!
I like taking time off over the holidays. I teleworked yesterday, just to be sure I was staying on top of things, but having big chunks of time to quilt, to organize/declutter, and to do things with family (Star Wars this afternoon!!) is precious. My former boss and really influential mentor passed away unexpectedly just before Christmas- I think about all of his plans for retirement and how he never got to do most of those things. NOW is the time to do all the things; retirement will just be a bonus.
I like baking- this is monkey bread I made for Christmas morning. It was DELICIOUS, and I think once a year is about the right time to make it!
recipe: -I used "only" a stick of butter instead of 10 Tbsp, and a less-than-tightly packed cup of brown sugar.
I like how silly my family is. TMOTH got the Karate Kid soba noodles for Christmas.
I like this book series. This was my Secret Santa gift this year- my SS noticed that I talked about how excited I was this was coming out - MONTHS ago - and got it for me for Christmas.
I like finishing UFOs. These four blocks were the start of the Solstice quilt by Pat Sloan, but I got distracted after the first four. They make a nice baby quilt, I think. Now to get cracking on a "big boy" quilt for the baby's brother.
I like vintage craft supplies. I'm in the process of winding floss onto bobbins. A lot of the vintage skeins have names as well as numbers - this is "Nectarine."
