2012 Year in review

Well we traveled back to NC from PA.  It was a long drive and I am tired.  Actually it has been a long couple of weeks without stopping or any real down time.  So as I sit here in front of my new electric heater with real-like fire and a cup of hot chocolate,

I pause to reflect on the majority of my projects completed this year.
quilts, mug rugs, bags, wall hangings, barn quilts, pillow cases, ornaments, journal covers
pin cushions, ring bearers pillows, sewing kits, stockings, and Kalli-cat!

And then all of the UFOs I would like to complete this year.  My 2013 resolution is to try and complete 3 UFO quilt tops a month.  I would also like to quilt at least one a month.
BOMs, swap blocks, 

Carrie over at A Passion for Applique is sponsoring a nothing but UFOs in 2013.  Pick three to work on each month.  Link up today!

 My three are:
1.  Some of these are my 90s blocks.  Ive already pieced the top and back for the 1993 Christmas 9 patches. 

 Using a great vintage poinsettia tablecloth-really yards of hemmed fabric I found at an estate sale.
I want to get it basted and quilted.
2.  Finish quilting/binding 4th of July table runner
3.  Put together another nine patch top
Well have a happy and safe New Year!

keep dreaming...Colleen
would love to have this in my studio to store scraps
