Last year I was determined to greet each day expecting good and it was a wonderful exercise in positivity.
This year I'm going to focus on the now.
This is much harder for me than you might think. I'm a planner - a LONG range planner and staying in the now can be very challenging for someone like me. I can be so busy thinking about the future that I forget to enjoy the day to day pleasures.
Just because I'm turning over a new leaf and living in the moment (raise of eyebrow) doesn't mean I don't have plans. I can't change over night people!

Next up is the oldest UFO in my closet. I found it while doing a minor clean out and this baby is a minimum of 20 years old!! Yes, that's two exclamation points there.
This is one of my first ever quilt projects made from an Elenore Burns pattern and some of my own layout. Get a look at that batting would ya. It's been sitting in the back of the closet all basted and all ready to go for who knows how long? I kind of still love it.
I remember I was trying out Seminole piecing. Not bad really for a newbie. I'm going to go ahead and quilt it as is as a practice piece. Finished is better than perfect and get it out of the closet.
Trying to keep to my live in the moment plan I'll think about future projects later. As Scarlet O'Hara would say, "Tomorrow is another day."
Linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. Be sure to visit and see the amazing projects that other creative quilters are working on.
Until next time,
