My special word for 2011 is SAVOR.
to perceive by taste or smell, esp. with relish: to savor the garden's odors.
to give oneself to the enjoyment of: to savor the best in life.
I originally planned for my word to be Celebrate. I do want to celebrate each day, each moment, but SAVORING each day, each person, each opportunity seemed to be the easiest way to Celebrate!
Sewing! Two days in a row I actually did some sewing. Yesterday, I spent a couple of hours with Pat in her "sewing tower". What a delightful time! I mostly prepared Scrappy Nines for the longarm quilter and pinned some components together, but it involved parts of the quilting process.
Today, I only had an hour and a half in my sewing room, but I enjoyed each minute. Adding borders to a quilt top is often the place that I abandon a project. At least a year ago, I put Christmas Lights in a plastic container to let it age. I'd love to have more Christmas quilts in our home next year. This project
is getting closer to being a "real" quilt. I measured and added the black inner border. I took it easy and enjoyed just doing that step. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a bit of time tomorrow to add the outer border. Thanks, Kelly and Kris for hosting the virtual sewing party. Let's do it again real soon!
