Candace Project Update 8

As I take a little time out to read blog posts that I enjoy, I see that most are in the midst of choosing their 2020 goals and new word of the year.

I find it all very inspiring!

And very distracting, too.

I have had a difficult time not planning fun, new projects and joining in the group challenges and mysteries.

I want to.  I really do.

But I also want to do ‘my thing’…whatever that is.  I guess I chose my word of the year already, when, in November, I decided to create a FOCUS list for myself.  I know it is only Day 1 of January, but I am amazed at myself for sticking with it so far!  I keep the list updated here, and I am happy that it does show progress.

Two projects (the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler and Vintage Ornaments) are completed and I am working on the third.

As you can see from the links below, I haven’t worked on Candace since last August.  Here is a reminder of where I left her:


I have been working on free motion zigzagging all of the pieces so that they will be secure.



I thought you might like to see some close-ups.






She will be ready for thread painting detail soon.

May you all be blessed with a happy, healthy, and productive New Year!
