What's on the design board?

The first day of each month I try to update my progress on this blog. I am happy to look back and see that each month the projects on the design board do change although not always as quickly as I would like. Sometime my motivation just doesn't keep up with my desire.

Today I am definitely motivated and have the desire but since it is the first of the new year, I am much more motivated to start fresh. To that end I've spent the day cleaning up my sewing room. I really let things go over the past few months to the point where I don't remember where I set things down. I hate that. And I have to walk over piles of fabrics that I haven't put away. This clean-up is very long overdue.

So today I took all the piles of all the stuff that is laying around and not put away and I piled it up on my sewing table. It was a horrible mess!
I took my time and organized and rearranged a few things. I dusted and vacuumed and cleaned everything. I even used a lint roller on my design board to get all the schnibbles off. Yes, the design board hangs empty right now! It took all day. But that's OK. I am all caught up on my client projects and have nothing pending that needs completion (except for my fall quilt but that's a big, big project). I can now think about what I want to do next.

Truthfully, I have been thinking about what's next for a while and my goals for this year include projects from Lori Holt's books, from Judy Gauthier's book and a Missouri Star magazine project or two. I also want to complete some smaller projects besides quilts that have been on my to-do list for a long time.
And just look, my sewing table contains nothing but the quilt projects I want to work on! It feels good to start fresh.
