My New Year's Resolution

I have decided that I will sew, or stitch, or cut some fabric, or play with my stash, use my machine quilter, or do something else creative each day.

I am not going to get to the end of year and realize that I spent all of my time reading other people's blogs and see all the cool things that they made.

To that effect, last night I picked out fabrics for my LQG, Block of the Month Raffle.   This month's are cute little pine trees.    The theme this year is going green, so each block is a different tree block.   And in honor of all of the stash busters, fabric diets and scrap users tutorials that seem to be popping up all over blogland, I am trying to use up my scraps.    I have cut out 3 blocks, two to raffle and one to keep, just in case I don't win.   I took pictures of my tree fabric pics, all from my scrap box.    These are my color choices and a close up of the pattern instructions.   I will post the finished blocks later in the week.

Oooh, I love it! I would love to have a quilt of all trees. Could you do some tutorials or let us know where to get these patterns?

My resolution is to spend 15 minutes per day in my sewing room. Sometimes I'm too tired to create (my brain feels fried), so I just clean up. Either way is a win-win! Somedays I spend exactly 15 minutes and other days I can stretch it out to an hour maybe. And no, I can't read blogs while I'm in my sewing room.

Hope you stick with your resolution. I can't wait to see what you create!

You go, girl! Doing even a tiny bit every day will make for a hugely productive year! I can't wait to see everything you get accomplished!
