2014, can you believe it? Another new year, and new possibilities.
But first, let me slip to the end of 2013 to share my latest paper-pieced quilt project. My friend Odalie recently posted on Facebook that she got a Sherlock Holmes book with all the stories in it. That gave me a clue that she must be a fan. As I was looking through the Fandom site at their free paper-piece patterns, I saw that there were some for Sherlock Holmes, and immediately thought of Odalie. I think its kind of serendippity when that happens, so I decided to make her a mug rug using two of the designs. They also had a magnifying glass, but I couldn't fit 3 items onto the mug rug. This is what I came up with.
Moving on, 2014 is the start of an art journal project group on Facebook. I've been wanting to be more artsy, and I think this will be a good step in that direction. I got a zentangle book for my birthday, and that will lend itself well to the journal project too. At least for part of it. I plan on prepping the journal this weekend so I can be ready for the first of 52 prompts in 2014. I'm already growing...I learned what prepping the journal means! There are a lot of youtube videos out there on the subject (gotta love youtube) and its really inspiring.
Okay, time to get up and about in 2014! Have a great new year. :)
