A New Year reSEWlution

New Year's Resolutions - eat healthy, exercise more, make time to do crafty things, eat less chocolate........

I've learnt a thing or two over the years and one of them is that I am no good at making or keeping new year's resolutions. 

So instead I have found a project to get my teeth into. A Quilt for Charity. Its a Quilt Block Drive for 65 Roses Day to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis. Kathreen is looking for people to make blocks, which will be made into a quilt comprising of 65 blocks and then auctioned at the CF Australia annual gala event in Canberra later this year.  

In the craft world, I have avoided the lure to make a quilt. I know I already have too many projects on the go and know that my house could not withstand more bits and pieces if I were to get addicted to quilting, so I thought getting involved with this and supporting a great cause would be a way to starve off the quilt urge.

So now off to hunt out some wicked fabric and get my rose design sorted. Check out this fantastic project or join in.
