Happy New Year! Let's hope 2018 is a good one
|Solda, my second home, Christmas day. What a vacation!|
Happy New Year! I'm very hopeful for this 2018, so many things that I want to accomplish. Also in my quilting journey! I already wrote down a list of goals, which include starting to design my own patterns. It's something I've been thinking for months, so I'm eager to
I am pretty sure about the first pattern I want to write. It's something simple but useful that I've already made twice as gifts. I don't even own one LOL! So next one is going to be mine. It's not something incredible or new, but I like it a lot and also I think it will help me learn to write tutorials and it will be an easy and friendly beginner pattern for everyone. No spoilers, just a sneak peek!
|Yay for hexagons, Katja Marek and EPP!|
I also really want to focus more on EPP (English Paper Piecing) because I love to sew by hand. It's also a nice way to sew everywhere: from the couch to a meadow. Since I'm outdoorsy, I definitely need to bring something with me wherever I go :)
I am so eager to challenge myself this year. In the last few months I challenged myself trying new patterns that so far I thought too difficult for me and found out it actually wasn't! Like the Infinity Scarf... such a popular pattern all over the internet. I saw so many tutorials... then I had a gift for a Secret Santa exchange to make and some beautiful soft minky to use and I did it! (Actually I made 3 scarves since I was enjoying it so much). I am happy to report that my target loved the gift and already put it into use since she lives in a cold town in Canada!
Another thing I want to try is Fabric Weaving. Have you ever checked Mister Domestic's Youtube Channel? If you haven't, you must! He's a fun, wonderful and creative person!
All for now :) I wish you all a wonderful and incredibly exciting 2018!
