Word for 2015 --

Like so many others I've decided to choose a word this year to help me stay focused.  So what's your word? you ask.  Drum roll....

BEGIN

As in BEGIN something new, BEGIN to begin, stop procrastinating and BEGIN to finish.

So in order to begin I've made up a list of some "BEGIN" things.  One of those lists includes the various works in progress that have been sitting on a shelf, hiding in this nook and that cranny.  I'm going to BEGIN to finish.  Here are a few pictures of some of them.


This little wall hanging has been sitting on the shelf for a number of years and deserves to be finished.  It just needs to be quilted and bound.  I'm calling it Three Gals On The Beach.


A couple of years ago, I attended a retreat where the theme was 60 degree diamonds.  From the fabrics that each participant brought, they had left over diamonds.  I collected them, made these stars (Seven Sisters) and thought I'd make them into a lap quilt as a memory of the retreat.  Hmmmmm....didn't get very far did I?  I think I'll place them in a "higglety pigglety" fashion with a lot of background and some FMQ practice.  What do you think?

These next two I posted about back here.  They need to be quilted and bound.

Let's see how many of the 50 items I managed to list, I'll be able to BEGIN to finish.

Good word! Mine is Finish this year, and I probably have 50 or so items on my list, too! Good luck!

What a good word! I need more than a word, I need a phrase, like 'get off your butt and do something!' It's been a slow start to the year, but you've challenged me to pick up the pace a bit! Thanks! And looking forward to seeing how you come along with all those 'beginnings'.

I have complete faith in you that you will begin to finish each of the fifty. but I know you will finish the ones that are important. You know fifty means you would only have a week to finish each one and that is a big ask!

I sure like your three gals at the beach and I remember the last two, more favourites of mine. Have fun finishing!
