It's January, do I'm on clean-up mode. Around the house, on my desk, and especially in my workroom. As I reach the bottom of the slippery slope to Christmas, tidying goes by the wayside, and eventually the floor is covered in an ankle-deep layer of scrap fabric.

The bigger pieces are out aside for folks, but the smaller bits always end up as pot holders. They're not much of a moneymaker at shows - $6 each or 3/$15 - but they alleviate the guilt I would feel at throwing all that viable fabric away.

Plus, I was given a dozen pair of mens jeans to cut up, and I always use denim for the backs.

What about you? What's happening in your creative spaces in the new year?

Nothing much going on right at the moment. Kind of daydreaming about the next projects but trying to prep the rest of my life for wrist surgery, which is going to slow me to no progress for awhile.

Just finished binding a quilt and have at least four more projects in progress. Also making Joey Pouches for Australian bush fire survivors (see Sew Sew Patty blog for info).

I'm trudging along hand quilting a bed-sized quilt. In queue are a couple of quilts ready for machine quilting, and quilt tops for QOV and myself to be made, maybe a top or two for myself, long-languishing needlework projects, project bags and floss mats, and the ever so fun (NOT!) annual tax info gathering...

It's been years (decades?) since I've read anything but sewing/needlework or cookbooks, your's is on my list for next time I'm at the bookstore.
