New Year's Resolutions ... 2009!!!

A tidy sewing room (I did say tidy ... not organized!) - well, this is the start of it! Also, all my folding is up to date, house tidied, kids fed and back to their Mum and Dad, read my emails quickly, then into the delightfully tidy sewing room!

I have made a cushion cover from one of the blocks of my first quilt - at least now I do have something to show and tell about my first quilt, even if it isn't finished ... and never will be!
Now, Blogland resolutions! I will try to reply to every Comment dilligently, try to check up on all the Postings on Blogs I Follow, make an effort to expand friendships ... you know, all those sort of things!
I know I should put a limit on my computer time - but I'm not going to do that! I like Blogging, Sewing, Socializing and when I can I will!
Right now I'm off to ponder over my new Angel Quilt - would be nice to make a start on some applique and really, let's face it, what I do today, I will do for the rest of the year!
♥ ... Hugs ... ♥

Gorgeous house pillow! I'd love tidy right now in my sewing room. Right now it needs caution tape. Someone could get hurt.

gorgeous sewing room! your things are always so pretty...and i love the doll next to your beautiful pillow...did you make it? i keep seeing dolls like that and am curious about them...happy new year!

MYRA said...

Your pillow is absolutely lovely! I love those homey looking little cottages... 8-)

You are just showing us all the tidy, uncluttered part of your sewing room aren't you Lurline... Wink, wink... Where is all the juicy stuff? The stash, cutting area, stacks of books/magazines, UFO/PHD baskets/bags/boxes? My sewing room is full of shelves of "stuff" all over the room... You must be hiding it really, really well... 8-)

No worries to reply to my comments Lurline... only if I have asked a question, so don't pressure yourself...

I'm in big trouble this coming year if the rest of it goes like today is... Yikes!

Happy stitchings! 8-)

Your pillow is so cute :) It's good to see the "first quilt" made into something!! Your sewing room is beautiful, my sewing room is my dining room table right now, until we get a bigger home someday. I have loved reading your blog, and am a horrible commenter, so I resolve to be a better commenter this year. Keep on posting, your work is so pretty.

You have a cosy looking sewing room. I'm glad to see you have got some use out of the house block, it looks very good. I'm going to have a very laid back year if what I did yesterday is anything to go by.

Kerri said...

Happy New Year Lurline. Its been great blogging with you in 2008 and looking forward to many more in 2009.
Your little cushion is very cute.

Happy New Year Lurline. I like your little cushion, and envie you your lovely sewing room. I use a corner of (sometimes most of) my living room for my sewing. It`s not very practical....., I wish I had a room where I could just close the door and leave everything as it is.

What a gorgeous cottage pillow.
