I’ve decided to keep on with my goal of simplifying life this year following some moderate success in 2015. I certainly have fewer books and less clothes that I did this time last year.
My focus words for 2016 are Waste Less – whether it be time, money, food or emotional energy – all in all to be more mindful of how I live.
Part of this involves being more organised. For those of you who have been following me for a while know that I learnt how to do English Paper Piecing (EPP) last year and have found it to be quite addictive in a meditative way. Yesterday I bought myself a small carry case to organise my EPP tools and supplies and spent a happy hour or so last night organising them.
My tool box.
Inside layer containing clips, thimbles, needles, business cards, pin cushion, ruler etc.
Next layer with Crazy Cat Lady pencil case (couldn’t resist it, especially as the cats look like patchwork) for pens and glue for basting and small hexie bag for various threads.
The bottom layer for paper pieces and template plastic. Now I’m good to go when the mood takes me.
These are a couple of stars I did on Saturday night. I’m waiting for some fabric to test for the background before I do any more.
I hope you are having a stress-free start to the year.
