|Briar Rose by Windham... and a couple blenders.|
I am grateful that I work in an industry that I love, with my mother and my daughter in a great town with a wonderfully supportive 'family' of small businesses.
I have to confess that some days it is challenging. And sometimes I let those challenges get to me and they bring me down and I lose focus of everything from the customer/friend walking through the door to the beautiful fabrics and new notions that usually bring me such joy.
|I use tags to help me keep track of what I need to cut next.|
I chose energy. Namely I want to focus on my own energy. What I bring to my own day and how that affects me, those around me, and the space around me. It didn't take long for me to sense a difference in my attitude.
My new focus on energy made me be open to a friend who encouraged me to participate in a Quilt A Long.
I selected the picnic blanket size and I picked fabrics I have always wanted to use, but needed a project that suited using bright and fun fabrics.
I will be posting my steps along the way and there is still to join in if you'd like. It's already been a lot of fun for me.
Here's to new & renewed energy in 2014.
