2014 is here!

Here we go....another year has begun.  And they do indeed go faster as you get older.  My mother was so very right on this account. (and many others too!)

I am not one for resolutions and with my track record of chaos, no point in making specific resolutions.  Just try to live and be a better person on a regular basis.  I have my children to keep me in check and plenty of family to remind me that we are all human.  We all make mistakes, have limitations and need one another in times of crisis and celebration.

I will make a few goals.  Mostly regarding projects around the house and with my on going quilting UFO's and new projects.

- paint the basement
- paint floor on porch, decorate so it may be a nice outdoor space to use during warm weather.
- purchase sofa for living room
- repaint master bedroom/remove existing wallpaper
- continue to accumulate "stuff" for yard sale in spring.  Ongoing attempt at plan to de-clutter.

- un-sew one of the graduation quilts I have almost finished.  The tension on the back side is crappy and not finishing well. Then on to re quilt and bind.
- finish piecing, quilting and binding the quilt for my boss who will retire in December.  DON'T   WAIT UNTIL LAST MINUTE!
- layer, baste, quilt and bind the last of the three graduation quilts
- make a double size quilt for Kendall's bed - or perhaps quilt one of the tops I have finished if she likes any of the ones I already have completed. (this might become the use for Celtic Solstice)
- continue to work on misc blocks as leaders/enders as I work on other projects.
- no new projects or purchase of fabric for new projects until the latest Bonnie Hunter Celtic Solstice has been pieced.  I love the way this mystery turned out!  I may need to purchase a few odd pieces of fabric for this to balance out the colors.
- track and log progress of quilting projects.
