Oh My Word!

Much of the blog talk these days is about New Year’s resolutions.  I gave that up a long time ago…instead I have a Word of the Year that I keep in the back of my mind and use to inspire myself.  I started in ‘07 with “seed” which worked out pretty well.  So then came “laugh” (appropriate, as it turned out, for a year with cancer) and last year was “heart”.  These words have had deep meaning to me.  Now my word is “reaching”. I found it in the Bible and when I read it, it just seem to apply.  It goes with so many things coming up in my life.

And speaking of reaching, last year I participated in Kris and May Britt’s One Project a Month Challenge.  It was great!!  I finished 27 sewing projects and 15 of those were quilts!  The OPAM Challenge surely helped me with that and kept motivating me along.  So a big THANK YOU is in order to Kris and May Britt for their awesome idea and so much hard work.

Kris and Peg are hosting it this year and I hurried to sign up again.  That means I better get busy so I’ll have a finish for this month.

Here’s to another great year!

Great idea to have a word that can inspire you throughout the year! Amazing that you finished 27 projects, but what is more amazing is that 15 of them were quilts!

You got quite a bit done last year! I didn't sign up for the OPAM this year because right now I have too many "pans" cooking in the kitchen. I will enjoy seeing your creations though.

Keep reaching in 2010!

Nothing like a bit of motivation to make you sew and finish projects.
