We trained yesterday. I got nice and cold...cold like a hot shower barely fixes it cold. But at least Nim was worn out and I could spend hours working on 2013 New Year's Day Mystery Quilt planning!
I really want to go scrappy. Thankfully this quilt is going to be a bit smaller than last year.
This was my final color selection last night (after many). From left to right:
Very Dark - Medium Dark Warm - Light Neutral or Very Hot - Medium Warm - Lighter Warm or Neutral - Light Cool.
My Medium Dark Warm row is not exactly "warm." I may revisit that row today and see what I have in the dark warms.
The lime green in the Hot is kind of a wild card. I just happen to like it. I haven't done any cutting yet so I am not sure if it will make final incorporation or not.
I woke up this morning and my carefully laid out fabric rows were scattered.
Today I will be cutting fabric, writing some New Year goals, and making lucky New Year's dish: Black Eyed Peas with Tomato and Greens. Now considering I did this exact same dish to start of 2012 which has been hands down one of the hardest years of my adult life arguably it is not a lucky dish for me...at least I love black-eyed peas.
I may need to bake emergency cookies for a day of sewing as well.
I hope to read about how others are getting ready for the New Year!
