New Year, New Resolution!
I don't know about you but it was really nice to have some R & R over the holidays.  

I decided I needed a FRESH start on my sewing room as so many UFO's have gathered there over the years and over 30 years of fabric collecting. My drawers were so stuffed full of forgotten treasures that I couldn't open the drawers!

So what next, tip them all out and decide what I still loved and what I really didn't want any more. 
4 large Bin Bags later and my drawers are tidy, my mind is uncluttered,  a number of deserving programs are getting my unwanted treasures.  To top this all off I am sewing again and have started finishing off some of my UFO's and looking forward to a NEW PROJECT in some modern new colours.

Try it, it's really cathartic and maybe what we all need to do.There are organizations like Snuggly Quilts,  Quilts of Valour,  Breast Cancer Kits, doing great things with our discarded treasure.   Kindergartens and Schools are also often happy to receive fabrics for their arts and crafts room.
