On your marks, get set...

I have no profound thoughts or reflections to make today... no look backs at projects I've done, accomplishments I've achieved. I have loved looking at everyone else', it's amazing what is out there. While the first 1/2 of 2010 was awesome and so wonderful for my quilting, the second 1/2 of the year tanked. Understandably...
I still plan on working with solids as much as I can, and make some of my drawings become real life, but also allow myself to use patterns; create for the love of colour and design, not for the need of more blog readers, popularity, or comments. (but please comment, it's such a high to see that email from you!)

I know 2011 will be outstanding. I feel hopeful, inspired, and ready to make this a far better year, consistently... I feel hopeful to experience this:

Zest, Passion, JOY.

I have started another blog based on my goal to be a runner. It is not quilt based, nor life/family stories, but strictly health, running, diabetes, and personal process related. I hope not to fail. My goal is to be able to run 5km by the time I'm 40, on May 20. At the moment, I'm not sure I can run even 5 meters without panting. It will have photos, ugly and beautiful, to document the pain and the victory. Now only if I can peel my behind off this chair and start the process!!!


  1. I'm so proud of you friend! I have 100% confidence that you will do this. :0)

  2. May each step we take lead the way to Peace.

  3. Step by's to health and creativity.

  4. I'm completely in the cant run 5 metres camp so good for you in having this goal.

    I think I'm going to enjoy watching all of your adventures this year!

  5. did you mention what the new blog is called? or set a link for it? im in your camp. would love to be running. i need some inspiration...and with a diabetic husband, id love to hear your insight on that as well!

  6. Good for you! (I miss running, even though I was never very good at it.)
