2013 New Years Goals

I hope everyone has had a pleasant New Years Day.  As in previous years I went out with friends last night to a lovely French restaurant to ring in the New Year. It was a great time catching up with good friends and a most enjoyable meal. Today has been a quiet laid back kind of day. I did some work on my Tranquil Garden wall hanging and also took some time to relax.

I've done my review of projects that I would like to get done this year, and here is the list. As always it will be interesting to see what gets completed, what doesn't and what new projects come along.

I also listed my UFOs that have no commitments at this time for completion and this list I only added one new project from 2011 so that's not too bad. I think as quilters it seems that everyone has the never ending supply of UFOs.

Jan: Finish Tranquil Garden wall hanging
Mar: Sawtooth Cats paper pieced quilt - new project, this is a pattern from City Quilter.  Here is the link and just scroll down about 3/4 of the way down: http://www.citystitcher.com/quilts.php
May: Finish Tranquil Moments lap quilt.  This is the one I started on my last trip to Hawaii.
Summer: work on my reverse applique Sea Turtles quilt
Fall: Finish Falling Splendor quilt

UFOs that are outstanding: I wonder if any of these will come off the plate this year
Hawaiian orchid pillow – hand quilting
Small Wall Hanging (that was to go into a silent auction) – quilting done, need to finish beading and sew binding
Lone Star - project just started
"In full Bloom - Poppy" from Elaine Quehl's workshop - add borders and quilt

I'm certain that there will be other new projects that will come up during the year that aren't planned at the moment so this year I'm trying to leave enough space for those project to happen and then I don't have to put others on hold. I'm not planning on any seminars or classes this year but that also could change if I see something that really sounds unique or interesting.

Happy New Year everyone.

It sounds like an exciting year of projects. I can't wait to see the sea turtles.

Your 2013 image is wonderful. So bright and bursting, just as we're wishing for the New Year. Your list looks perfectly roomy for whatever the year might hold.

You are going to be busy! Those sawtooth cats look very interesting.
