Episode 194 In Which We Recap 2015 and Look Ahead to 2016 Quilty Resolutions 12-29-15

In this episode I report on how I did with my 2015 Quilty Resolutions and what it meant to have a Word of the Year; I also remind y'all what your 2015 Words of the Year were and ask for updates! Then we turn to 2016 Quilty Resolutions. I share mine, and then once again invite you to share yours and enter my giveaway. I end the episode by talking about a few books I've found helpful in helping me with crazy quilting, embroidery, and beadwork.

 Please note: I have now posted the Quilty Resolutions submission form here.

Episode 193 In Which We Talk Quilty Resolutions and Fidget Quilts

In this episode I talk about a family emergency that turned into a quilty project; I also discuss how to save embroidery projects from the trash can, and a little bit about de-gunking irons, all in the context of my current works in progress (or finishes). I also introduce the 2016 Quilty Resolutions Challenge concept, although the actual challenge won't launch on my blog for another several days. But this'll get you thinking!
