Chairman's Message #5

Updated: Feb 14, 2021


Happy New Year!


New Year, New Beginnings and New Year’s Resolutions


New starts are not hard for many of us. There is a rush when we unwrap that jelly roll. The thrill of running your hands over a freshly ironed fat quarter is known only to quilters. The “this year I am finally going to make ......” project on the cutting table excites us. We can’t wait to get started. We have all been there. Done that. Love it.


So this year I resolve to stay in love with each project until it is done. Not finishing projects, for whatever reason, of course, leads to UFOs! I spent much of last year working on UFOs, telling myself that if I get 2 projects finished I could start a new one. Well, I have finished some older projects but I have not started any new projects for me.


Therefore, this year, I vow to love every project and not abandon it for whatever reason. I will look forward to the satisfaction of knotting the last stitch in the hand sewn binding. Some might call it discipline (as my husband would) but I prefer to look at it from an emotional perspective. I will love every project I start, and stay in love with that project, no matter what! Maybe this way I’ll avoid the accumulation of more UFOs. Maybe.


What’s your New Year’s quilty resolution?


Stay safe.
