Not unlike a lot of you, the month of December is a busy one for me! Normally, I try and have some homemade gift items made for people, but this year that has not happened. I have been focusing on myself and my career the last few months. I have taken several classes on drawing and illustration, working towards building my illustration portfolio. So, I will not be torturing myself trying to churn out any massive homemade quilting gifts this year.
I will be blogging each day, as I posted about the 31 Day Blog Challenge. So, that will be filling up quite a bit of my time. I also have blog posts to write for APQS’s blog.
Quilting related activities will be: Finishing the winter version of Fall Splendor, my free quilt pattern from quite awhile back. I also have three quilts that I need to write patterns for so I can put them up for sale starting next year. This entails writing up the directions as well as designing the packaging/appearance of the pattern.
December also brings about a time of reflection and planning for me. I will be deciding on what my theme word for 2016 will be. As well as goals I want to set for the coming new year. Quilting goals. Personal goals. Business goals.
It of course also brings festivities. Work Christmas parties, concerts, seeing A Christmas Carol at The Guthrie as we do each year. Culminating in hosting a Christmas Eve fondue for family and framily. Pretty much my favorite night of the entire year, to be honest. I adore entertaining, and Christmastime is my favorite time of the year.
