I know this blog post is not posting on Jan 1. I find that you either love a new year or are not impressed with having to make new resolutions. I feel that you can make resolutions, goals, commitments, or whatever you want to call them… any time of the year can be new beginning.
In January…I do make my lists, figure out my goals and I start organizing. This all takes a lot of time and thought. I do not rush it. I want to feel comfortable with them and make sure they are not too big, too small, attainable, or completely out of reach. Am I pushing myself enough? Or am I taking the easy or simple way out?
I hope you hang out with me this year…Here on my blog, on my YouTube Channel- Stitch with Lisa Bongean, or on our Stitch with Lisa Facebook group. We are excited about 2021. Here is a rough list of what will be going on with me and Primitive Gatherings in 2021. Stay tuned for all the FUN!
101 Itty Bitty Stitch Along– Books are here and we will be shipping them soon!
Every day deserves to be celebrated, and with 101 Itty Bitties to choose from, it’s easy to make that happen. Use wool scraps and a bit of hand stitching to create 2″ squares with motifs and sayings for holidays, seasons, sports, gardening, pets, and more. The designs are quick to complete and make perfect take-along projects. Tuck the tiny treasures into vignettes, turn them into wearable art, add a magnet and display them on your refrigerator, tie them to a gift, or send one to a friend to brighten their day–the possibilities are endless. Make an Itty Bitty (or 101!) and make every day a celebration!
American Quilter’s Stitch Along– Starts Feb 1st- Fingers crossed the fabric come in, in January. You will need a FAT QUARTER bundle of American Gatherings fabric. Patterns will be free downloads. We will be raising money for veterans with each bundle sold and auctions and donations
Moda Block Heads 3 is finishing up- I will be posting my layout soon.
Sewcialites with the Fat Quarter Shop- I am keeping up and doing two sizes 3″ & 9″.
Ready will be starting another monthly Wool Stitch Along? Early Spring 2021.
We will continue to offer Video Tutorials on techniques and projects.– Let us know if you have any suggestions that are not on our list. We are learning and buying better equipment for 2021. Please share our videos and comment, “Like” and subscribe to our channel. We are starting to make a little money on these videos, however, it takes lots of watched hours to make it add up. The more who watch it, the more we can do… and it will help pay for what it takes for us to keep creating these videos! STITCH WITH LISA BONGEAN is our YouTube Channel
Wool Box subscription– I am working on designing and completing our projects way ahead of our ship dates. A lot of planning has to go into these with our subscription at 1300. If I use an FQ of flannel or wool…that is 325 total yards…just so you can understand what this means. This subscription is closed. We just added more spots and are filled up at this time. Watch our group for info on when you will be able to join if we have some openings.
