My name was in the Chicago Tribune yesterday on the same page as the Queen and her family.
Why is it that New Year's Day good-luck food is southern? We had Hoppin' John (black-eyed peas and rice), collards (green for money), and ham for dinner. I added a dash of sriracha (Asian hot sauce) to the HJ. Apparently even the prospect of good-luck food was efficacious. I got an email from Patty at Elm Street Quilts saying that I won the December OMG finish prize! It's a gift certificate from Bagmakers Supply . That will help me achieve my 2017 goal to make six totebags.
My Magpie friend Sarah always warns, "Do not do laundry on New Year's Day!" The idea is that whatever you do on January 1 you'll do each day in the coming year. Actually, I don't mind doing laundry though I understand what a time-consuming chore it was before modern washers and dryers. Still, to establish the routine for 2017, we read the newspaper and went to church. I took an afternoon nap and spent the evening sewing.
It's time to declare my One Monthly Goal for January: assemble En Provence, the 2016 Quiltville mystery.
Bonnie issued the sixth part on Friday. Here are those units.
I really like the colorway. I love the design!
