2010: Year of the quilt



I know I'm about a week late boring you with the details of resolutions I'll stick to for no more than two weeks before quitting.

So I'll spare you.



What I will share, though, is a crafty commitment I'm not going to quit.  Quilts.  I'm setting out to make them this year and I mean it, starting with one for myself.

So we're a week into the new year and already my little rotary cutter has gotten quite a workout cutting hundreds of squares. And I'll admit, this is a resolution I'm really enjoying.
