Double cross!
I'm finally getting around to the other stops! I love your block - the fussy cut center square is perfect!

Quarterly goals and re-evaluations are very wise! You don't want to loose the forest for the trees. Good luck with all the marketing stuff - I totally suck at it!!!! I actually got off to a quick start this year and now have a big commitment to follow through on: http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2012/02/01/meetup-january-goals/ Come on February, bring it on!

Yup, you love yours just like I love mine, and I agree those are the 2 PITA parts of it! It took me a couple of weeks to learn how to control the speed with finesse (and mine doesn't have those 3 speed regulations, it's all in the power of the foot) but now it is total second nature to me and I have wonderful control (I do sew barefoot, there no way I could do it with shoes...I even had to do that while taping QATV and my DVD this summer LOL!) When I do sew on my Bernina, I just get frustrated because it's so SLOW! ;-)

OOH, pretty pretty pretty! Love the new look, and glad to hear you're stretching in new directions!

Yep - September really is the start of the year. Although the end of December really feels like the end of the year (the end of that incredible push of making for shows, and holidays...) September really does feel like the start of so much. Liz it really seems like you're figuring out how to make the most of your creativeness, and that is totally AWESOME! I was SO happy to cross off so much stuff this month: http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/09/04/meetup-september-goals/ Look out Fall, here we come! ;-)

Hooray! Sounds like your July was just perfection! AND you're stoked for August - hooray for you! So glad to hear July #5 is working for you, that should be the goal for all of us! :-) I'm hoping to get a great start on August, I've got some important deadlines coming up the end of this month! http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/08/01/meetup-august-goals/

Yup - I LOVE times like this, when ideas come together and you make exactly what you want/need. In fact, this concept of making it myself is a BIG part of who I AM! I love that you and I were on the same wavelength this weekend - even sewing with the same fabrics! :-)

OMG - YES that is totally how I feel! I keep adding to the things that I'm doing, and keep on doing what I used to do, it's crazy! Part of all this is because this cycle of submit to be published in the magazines - there's so long between the beginning and the end, and I know I want to keep going, but phew, it's exhausting! My list is shorter than normal this month, hopefully there's room for some R&R as well as some art making just for the heck of it! http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/06/01/june-goals-meetup-2/

LOVE the iPhone decals...I would love one on my DroidX - is that an option??? You're right, testimonials are important! I'm gonna add that to my todo list, which is right here: http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/04/01/meetup-april-goals/ Go April GO! (aha, I see that after I sign in with twitter I've got to come back and redo the comment...probably what DIDN'T happen last month!)

I too love this batting, but it's very hard for me to source it locally :-(
This looks so COOL! I'm a bit confused though...why in step 1 do you sew with the wrong sides together? Doesn't that mean that the raw edges would be sticking out the front??? ALso, are you familiar with the work of Quit Artist Extraordinaire Caryl Bryer Fallert? One of her motifs is something she calls "high tech tucks", take a look here http://www.bryerpatch.com/images/quiltrecords/InnerLight4/InnerLight4.htm (if you don't know her work, be prepared to be blown away) ;-)

Yes yes yes, you are so right! If we forget that we're doing this because we LOVE to do it, then what's the frikkin point!?! I'm so happy you're finding your way, thanks so much for the reminder! This was the fastest January in history...here's to February! http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/02/01/meetup-my-goals-for-february/

Liz - I too am with you...my word of the year gets to the heart of your "working smarter..." Anyway, here's my goals post: http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2011/01/05/looking-forward/ Thanks for all the support last year, I truly am looking forward to what this year will bring, and part of this is brought about by the support I get from my meetup pals! :-)

Oh my GOODNESS - your goals #'ed 5 & 6, I totally need to do this! So glad the crunchy leaf walking was a success...as well as your beautiful new resin jewelry! I never responded to your email, but they are LOVELY and I would to show them off in a "Maker's Must" interview sometime... I already let go of my first December stress: a meaningful, beautifully constructed advent calendar (replaced it with a lego and chocolate storebought ones, the kids were ecstatic!) I'm hoping I can balance this list: http://www.candiedfabrics.com/2010/12/01/december-goals-meetup/ with some really relaxing activities! As always, thanks for keeping the Meetup going Liz - I gather so much strength from this group!

All this beautifulness in just one walk? Incredible! Sigh, my neighborhood in SoCal never looks like this!
