Hubs and I held our VIP New Year's Eve Party again this year.....him and me with a bottle of bubbles and some yummy nibbles to share.
While doing a Zoom session with Chookyblue and other Zoomers on Monday I did ask the question of everyone on the screen if they had any plans in the sewing room for the coming year.
Some had specific goals to finish off long standing UFO's, others are looking forward to starting new projects and there were a few like me that did not have any plans - just whatever happens.
I have since given my sewing plans some thought and decided that I will join in the RSC again this year. So hand into the red scrap basket to do some slab sewing - pieces that are bigger than crumbs. Some were strips, squares, triangles and others just odd shaped left overs.
Once sewn together they will then become bibs for a charity that I sew for. By the end of the year there
should will be a rainbow of bibs around the creche where they are sent to. The aim is to make 2 or 3 of every colour each month so hopefully that will reduce the scrap piles considerably.
At the beginning of last year I joined in the Table scraps challenge run by The Joyful Quilter which involved making any item for your table from a mug rug to a table runner using the RSC colour of the month. This fell by the wayside due to our move but I am going to join in again this year and the range of items to sew has been expanded. Another great way to use up those scraps.
The plan is to join in with blog hops again as well as various linky partys. These are a great way to keep motivated and inspired by many of the lovely creations that keep coming out of these link ups.
Another book started...a very quick and easy light read.
And another beanie on the needles. I now have two on the go at the sametime. I like to cast on and do the ribbing with longer needles and then switch to shorter ones while doing the bulk of the knitting.
I wish you all a happy, healthy and safe 2022 as we navigate our way through this pandemic and learn to live with it.
Back soon and in the meantime
