New Year = New Goals

Sorry for my lack of blogging, but I have been having difficulty keeping up with everything that is going on. I am sad to say that I went the whole Christmas vacation without turning on a sewing machine. I am having considerable sewing withdraw! At the beginning of the year, I always like to look back at what I accomplished the previous year and set some new quilting goals.  I finished quite a few things last year, but almost half of them were not on the UFO spreadsheet that I maintain.  This is a good/bad news thing.  I didn't create more UFOs, but I also didn't reduce my number by much.  I hope to remedy that this year.  I am taking a picture of ALL my UFOs as of January 1.  I hope this will be the kick start I need to get going on some of them.

These are some of my sewing goals for this year


  1. Finish 20 quilts/wall hangings from the UFO parade (parade will be starting later today)
  2. Finish the tutorials on the FW blocks & substitutions ;-)
  3. Improve my photography skills so my blogging pictures are more exciting
  4. Limit my purchases enough so that all the fabric I have will fit on my shelves  (backings for 20 quilts should help with this don't you think?)
I hope everyone had a delightful Christmas and Happy New year.

I leave you with a picture of my simple tree this year.  I love that this tree takes about 5 minutes to put up, and 5 minutes to decorate.
