Ok, for all you party people, drink some coffee and get up. It's the 1st day of a new year and time to get busy. I've heard this all my life...Whatever you do on the first day of the year is what you will be doing the rest of the year. Now, I don't know where that came from but I hope part of it's true. My husband got up and fixed breakfast for us. Woo hoo, no cooking! I could get used to that! He's putting the Christmas decoratations in the attic and helping clean up the house. Another woo hoo for him helping. Now, we are changing our bedroom around. After that is finished, he's going outside to piddle around with whatever he wants to and then I get to sew. Later, I'll be putting the ham into the oven and cooking the black eyed peas, cabbage and corn bread for a later supper. We will just be snacking this afternoon and he'll be watching sports while I play in the sewing room. This sounds like a great start to a good year....I can handle this kind of year all through the year!
Ok, let's get serious. Get that coffee and run over to Angela's blog. I have signed up for a Scrappy Saturday this year that she's hosting. Today just happens to be the first one of the year and I'll be using my blue scraps. I have decided to make a mug rug and she has the directions. I have seen these little buggers all over other blogs and I've been wanting to do some so here's the perfect opportunity. Click here and it will take you to her blog to see the mug rug and other ideas for this month. She has three ideas this month. Each 1st Saturday, she'll be giving different ideas for short projects to use up your color palette. It's not too late to sign up and get some of those scraps out of your sewing room and made into something useful instead of just laying around. Click here to sign up for her Scrappy Saturdays. So, let's get busy. Happy New Year and I'll show you what I did later today.
