A New Year...

I hope it's a great one for you all.

2012 was a year full of big ups and downs for me and my family. A new baby, a wild fire threatening our home, an eye injury to my dh (thankfully he still has full sight). My blog has 'suffered' and my goals were not even part way met...lol... but thats ok...

because it's a New Year....

 and quilting goals and blogs are not as important as family...as much as I enjoy them.

My quilting goals last year was to get as much of this stack, and the stack I didn't photograph, quilted.


Um, I don't  think I quilted ONE of them!! Instead, I made more tops to add to the pile and new quilts for babies and best friends :)

So, lets not look back, but look ahead.

I have a fantastic new machine, and a walking foot.
I am thinking of joining Fiber of all Sorts and her year of finishes.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

Just so that I can help myself out and start in on a new goal, of getting ONE of these tops finished each month.

That might be hard to do...

I love Jess's mystery quilts so much, I love testing for her, that I have a hard time saying no every 3 months.

I have two quilts right now that I want to make for my boys.

Then there is Christmas, I want to be better about making gifts this year, and that means starting early.

And a baby who is getting ready to walk, which means he will be getting into EVERYTHING.

So, we shall see what the New Year brings to me quilty wise.

I hope you have some good quilty goals to strive to this year.

Have a great day.
