I won't keep counting days forever, but it does feel good to try to accomplish something each day of the new year.
Accomplishment number 1 for the day, watching the sun come up over the horizon. Kurt is driving our son Ryan back to college today, and our oldest daughter left to be back and celebrate the new year with her friends. That just leaves the youngest daughter and I to putter around the house today. I'm collecting some things for Goodwill and doing some tidying. With the windows open to a beautiful ocean breeze, it is quite pleasant. We took down the tree yesterday, which left everything feeling so open and clear.
The RSC color for January is red, so I might start to play with some red scraps today as well.
Next on the list are the last two applique baskets to this quilt that was also started long ago. I was afraid that I didn't have any of the dotted background fabrics on hand anymore, but was able to find enough to get the last two blocks prepped and ready for some slow stitching. I can't decide whether these need a lattice and cornerstones treatment, it is trickier with an on point setting, but the baskets seem to need a little space to breath.
