This is where it all started for me but times change and now all of my blogging takes place over at my
Quilt Routes blog and I hope you will join me over there.

I really do not know which way is up with these abstract journal quilts.
Not that it matters. I am still enjoying just playing with paint and stitch.
I have decided to go back to the colour I used in my first January Journal Quilt. There will be a third so that by the end of the year I will have four groups of three.
Two close ups for you today!

Last week I showed you my Jan, Feb and March Journal Quilt
Here are April, May and June and it feels good to be ahead of the games
Some might say that this approach is cheating.
I call it time management ;)

Here is my contribution for my January 2015 Journal Quilt.
This is February. The constraints this year are 6 x 12 inches either portrait or landscape orientation, to be adhered to once chosen.
This is March.
Can you see where I am going with these?

I wish I had called this Ten Penny (tenpenny?) Moon now.
It has more of a ring to it, don't you think?
This hare seems a bit more friendly than the others and as I write this I realize that I have never really considered whether my hare is a He or a She before.
Something to consider.
All three recent hares can be compared here:D

If you read my last post you will know why this one is called Cotton Reel Moon.
This one is a variation of this one below.
I do find it quite interesting to find other ways of portraying the ubiquitous Moon Gazing Hare.
There are a lot of them out there!
I don't think I have reached my limit yet though.
It is in the name after all!

I have bags full of small pieces of wadding and small bits of unpainted white fabric. Last year I decided to use them up and put together a few more Moon Gazing Hare pieces.
This particular hare is based on a design I saw on a Turkish plate. I can't remember if I saw it on the internet or at a museum, but I made a sketch from it I would share if I could find it :/
I have used this hare before in a not dissimilar piece.
Why Coffee Cup Moon?....
....that would be what I drew around to get the moon size.

I am not really sure, dare I say convinced by the word for the year thing. I did have a stab at it a few years ago, but couldn't really comment on it's success or otherwise.
However, this year I am faced with a number of self imposed goals and I really want to try and reach them, so as a reminder of those goals I have chosen the word Implement.
Implement better work routines.
Implement more output.
Implement better organisation, which will undoubtedly help the above.
Implement a healthier lifestyle etc, you know, those New Year things.
Just get things done in other words.
If you type the word into Google there are lots of flow charts and whatnot and I like this one from the Australian Govt. I think it could be applied to quilt making!
I also have got a little phrase that I am going to implement.
Use Stuff Up!
This is related to the pics I have attached to this post and which I will go into greater detail about soon.
