Just a few things for you...

Here's my BQL January 2009 challenge. The idea is that you make a 12" quilt - it gives you the opportunity to try new techniques, colours and use up some of your stash. I'd really encourage you to have a go as it really doesn't take too long.
As it's new year it's a great opportunity to try new things and think in new ways. One thing I think we should all take more time with is in looking after ourselves. With this in mind I'd like to tell you about a new digital radio station I've found called Chill FM. They also have a website that enables you to download their podcasts - I've found listening to their meditation podcasts before I go to bed has really helped me get a good nights sleep. I'd love to hear your experiences with them.
And finally I'd like to let you know about another website that also has podcatsts available - it's Alyson Stanfield's website Art Biz Coach.com. She really puts a lot of effort into her website, newsletter and podcasts. And I'm sure you'd find lots of useful information.
I hope you'll be able to find time to look at these sites and let me know what you think.

Wow! What a fabulous little quilt. I love the blend of fabrics you've used. Now you've inspired me to go back to "The Art Quilt Workbook". Last year I had begun to do some of the exercises and each chapter ends up with making a mini quilt. Its such a great idea.
I love Chill FM too - haven't tried the podcasts yet, but keep meaning too. Maybe I'll give that a go too, as I'm having a lot of problems sleeping at the moment.
