2013 Goals and thoughts

Well here it is a new year with many plans ahead for so many. I wasn't sure if I was even going to make any resolutions. I decided not to, instead I going for goals. So my thoughts are that if I am able to complete one thing a week that could be approachable. It could be health related, or for my family or me. Maybe one of my quilt project or something around the house or garden. Something that maybe isn't important but been wanting to do. I believe it would be worth a try and see what I can achieve this year.
There are a few other thoughts I had and one was that my blog needs a good cleaning and rearranging. So that is my first goal for this week, a make over.

I am also going to again this participate in Judy's UFO challenge but this year she revamped it.
It's called "Getting it Done", we pick  4 things we want to get done in one month time.
Here are mine for January;
1. Finish the boys quilt, and yes still not completed, I really need this encouragement.

2. Finish Easy Street top, now that we have all the clues I'm not sure about the cheddar I chose. I might have to try others choices.

3. Start our stitch group project quilt, we each make a quilt from the same pattern but using our own color choices. Doing one out of Barbara Brackman's book Civil War Quilts. The Pea Ridge Lily

4. Finish my Dresden Plate quilt   

That's a good start. Now that doesn't mean I can not add to this during the month if need be but I have for myself a do-able goal.

Happy New Years 
May it be a happy, healthy and productive year


  1. Sounds like an ambitious January! Love the Pea Ridge Lily. I'm going to have to look for that book. Good luck with your projects!

  2. That sounds like a good list for someone with plenty of time. I like the idea of your stitch group. Best of luck with your January goals!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
