Simplify and enjoy

P1050319I want to wish you a Happy New Year and share with you my slogan for 2012 - Simplify and enjoy!
If you like to stitch the design too, you can find it here.

Please keep in mind that this is my pattern and I enjoy sharing it with you.

You can make as many hearts as you like, to keep, to give away or to sell, adjusting the size if you so prefer
I will ask you kindly not to teach from my pattern and
not to copy my pattern to your blog or website.
You are welcome to refer your friends to my blog to print their own pattern, and I love to see what you have made from my design!


I am not one for resolutions really, but I love plans :-)

My plan for 2012 is to simplify and enjoy -
* organize my fabrics by using from my fabric collection
* finish several started projects
* shrink my WISP collection
* take a break from making care quilts
* have fun with my own designs

This is May Britt's lovely heart design in the making :-)
I love hearts, and I love May Britt's yearly heart designs. Thank you May Britt!

May Britt and I have a January challenge going between us:
No starting of new projects in January.
We also have a Low Buy challenge going until 16. March - only BBBB allowed - borders, bindings, batting and backing!
It will be hard, but we can do it, together :-)


The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary
so that the necessary may speak

I define joy as a sustained sense of well-being and internal peace
