My word for the January challenge
is more of a theme for my activities outside my quilting life,
although it could be applied to quilt making as well.
This is the year I'm going to tackle a large writing project,
a mid-life master's thesis
so I thought my word should reflect that.
I want to complete that thesis in 2012,
so my word reflects that goal:
a finish line.
Here it is, hanging like the banner at the finish line of a race,
in front of the window behind my sewing table.
The Amish quilts on top of the window
are calendar pages mounted on foam core.
