I've spent the last couple of days thinking about the year that's gone and the year that's ahead of me. Looking back I've thought about the things I would have changed. That can't be done, what's in the past stays there, but the future holds all sorts of possibilities. I'm not one to make New Year's resolution's. I think we have a hard time holding true to them come the middle of the year. I do however like to think about what I'd like to achieve in the coming year. I think Darlene said it beautifully, generosity and gratitude.
This year I've decided that I want to make a difference, not just in my own life or that of my family, but in the lives of the people around me and my blogging family.
Stephanie issued a challenge to join her in a string block/quilt, scrap busting hassle free fun time. I decided to join in, and after thinking about it more, I've decided that the majority of items that I make through her challenge will be donated to local charities, which will hopefully make a difference in someones life. I don't need to see the difference, just knowing that it will, makes my heart full.
I've also decided that once I have my PIF items finished, I'd like to work on RAK parcels. When I see a need I'd like to be able to fill that need with a gift.
These are just a couple of thoughts I've had. Thank you for allowing me to share them with you all.
Now I'll leave you with a finish for the start of the year. A couple of place mats and a runner that I whipped up this afternoon.
