I feel so out of touch people! With Christmas, kids/husband home from school, my sewing machine in the shop again, and close to a week away from home, I feel like I've fallen off the face of the earth as far as sewing goes. Re-capping the past year seems too overwhelming right now, so I think I'll just take a look into the near future and make a bit of a to-do list:
- it's my month in the bee I belong to and we've been doing granny square blocks using a whole variety of my scraps along with a natural shade solid - the blocks are starting to come in already and I don't want to leave them languishing!
- finish the library tote that I started before Christmas, using Michelle's pattern
- purchase backing and batting for my disappearing 9-patch Brrr! quilt. I'd hoped to get this one finished by Christmas and it just didn't happen. But I figure that since the fabric is more of a winter fabric than a Christmas fabric, I'm still good to go for a few more months!
- figure out what to do with my Etsy shop. I haven't had any sales since around the time of Black Friday, and neither of the two Christmas-y items I had listed sold. I honestly don't know how much effort I want to put into stocking the shop and promotion and all that stuff so my thought at the moment is to just put stuff in there when I have something to list, and if it sells great, if not, no big deal. Which is kind of how I started off thinking about it anyways.
