Inspiration is such a fleeting thing. When I need it, I find that I feel adrift looking for what I need but since I have decided (yet again) to finish old projects before starting new ones, I have had more ideas about what I want to do than I have had in a while. I keep writing them down and putting the ideas in my "safe" place and try to move on to finish something else, but it is taking
all my willpower not to dive in. I have now decided to reward myself by letting me start ONE new project on April 1 - now I just have to pick one. In the meantime, I am very proud of the 5 UFOs I have completed. I am continuing to push ahead on them and slowly but surely I have some areas in the sewing room that look semi organized- Yay! I wish all of you as much luck in
your UFO pile reduction.

Super Saturday is a great day for inspiration. If you have never been, try to join us this year. It's a great opportunity for guild members to spend some time together and to learn new techniques. I have never come away from the day without a new piece of knowledge that I have used to solve some issue on a project. I cannot recommend it enough if you have the time.

Also on the Agenda is we have to start looking ahead to next year. If you aren't involved and would like to be, we have many places we can definitely use you and if you would like to just dip your toe in the water to see if you want to help the guild run also let me know. We have some people who would gladly take you under their wing and show you what needs to be done and
then it won't be so scary. But remember we need YOU to help keep the guild up and running and we do have spots that need filling.

So I leave you with a thought that I just found and loved
cut with hope
stitch with grace
Quilt with dreams
bind with laughter
share with love

In stitches,
