Here in Australia,

it's almost the end of 2012,  I came across this quote earlier today:

He who breaks a resolution is a weakling;
He who makes one is a fool.

F.M. Knowles

so I will just be getting on with what I want to do and what makes me happy.

I finished the Soul Searching quilt a couple of days ago (quilted and bound), but the sun is shining too brightly outside to take a decent photo, so this photo of it folded up will have to suffice for now.

I also ran up a quick cushion cover, in my favourite blues of course, there wasn't too much work in it as the fabric was bought already pieced, so all I had to do was sew the seams, and stuff it with a cushion insert, it works nicely with the Stringy quilt.

My workroom organisation has been going quite well, it's been a long time since I've been able to have a totally clear cutting table, hopefully it will stay that way for some time.

I was going to have larger (taller) storage cubes but in the end I decided that in view of my advancing age it was more important to have furniture that was easy for me to move around without assistance, and I like having everything at more or less the same level.

Now I feel ready to start some awesome quilts next year, note that I am saying start there are no promises to finish them :)


  1. I did smile at your last sentence. One of my good friends has an email address of "quiltstarter" LOL

  5. Happy New Year Pip!!

    Your workroom looks very neat.

  6. Look forward to seeing the finished quilt when the weather is right for a photo. Such a clean sewing room and such good furniture. I am iving my room a spring clean at the moment. So much dust behind the furniture.
    Happy New Year.

  7. Happy New Year Pip and I'm looking forward to seeing all your "starts"! Love your blue quilts and cushion!
