Happy New Year!

Boy, that's an original title. I've been reading blogs on and off all day, and really enjoying the wrap ups of last year, and the plans for this year. Some of you are really ambitious! And some of you really did a lot of sewing last year!

I haven't added anything up. I made a lot of things, and have some favorites, and some that were not as successful. And a couple of things that I haven't worn at all.

But, today's post isn't about sewing. It's about art and the process. I think that sewing is definitely a creative process, and it's one of the things that I have been able to do at least fairly successfully most of my adult life. It just comes easy to me. And this year, artistically, I decided to stretch myself. In December, a friend, pointed me to a possibility for an art workshop of sorts on Etsy. 366 Pages, a yearlong, online, mixed media journaling workshop. After briefly contemplating, I leapt in (sorry). If you check it out, it's not too late to join. And what a deal! $20 for a year of encouragement, ideas and fun.

OK, the promotion is over, and I've done my first day's journal entry.

You will have to click on the picture to learn a little more about it.

And don't worry, this will stay a mostly sewing blog, with Wilma still making some appearances with a recipe on Wednesdays, and the occasional post about family or dogs. I may put some kind of flickr slideshow thing-y here, but that's still TBD.

Finally, I'll leave you to ponder on the size of my ironing basket when I tell you that my #1 resolution right now is to iron everything in said basket before the end of January (and hopefully sooner).

Here's to 2012!!!


  1. Best wishes...especially with the ironing!

  2. ugh ironing LOL! love the 366 idea! can't wait to see what you are going to do in 2012! go Elle!

  3. Sometimes, when you look in the ironing basket you realise that you were a bit hasty, and really, a lot of it does not actually need to be ironed! Or at least I do1
    Happy 2012!

  4. Sounds like you'll be doing some interesting things in 2012! Best of luck on getting through that ironing load!
