Well I think it's time to get my head out of la-la land to make some definite plans for 2013.
I opted out of Chookyblue's SAL this year. Though, the projects planned are wonderful and very tempting. I was cleaning up my sewing area and found way too many projects half done or bought for and not even started. So I decided I really did not need to start a another whole set of different things. (I just re-read what I typed and found I had left out 'not' in the last sentence. Do you think that was my subconscious telling me I really did want to stay in it? Message to self - Stay strong.)
In order to keep myself in check and on task, I have been able to join the 'Sew Its Finished' blog - a blog dedicated to helping you get all those UFOs finished. Nothing like having others encourage you to stay on task.
So with this in mind, I need to put a list together. Sadly it is by no means complete. I didn't want to scare myself too much!
Layer, quilt, bind
*X-block baby quilt
*Paddington Bear baby quilt
*Sunshine table runner
Put together, etc
*Jungle Animal baby quilt
*Love in a Mist lap quilt
*Head Over Heels lap quilt
*Starburst table runner
*Birdsong Jewell Box
*Clamshell table runner
Stitcher's Day Out projects
*Bits and Bobs Sewing purse
*Cuppa Time Mug Bag
Freeform Crotchet/Knit Handbag
Plus all the new projects I have planned.
Oh! Dear! And I haven't even looked in the last cupboard. Might leave that one closed a bit longer.
Other plans for 2013 include my mother's and her twin brother's 80th birthdays, a trip back to England, a reorganisation at work, and a redecoration of my son's old bedroom. He moved out last July into a share house with friends; luckily it's not too far away as he still needs Mum and Dad sometimes for transport and help. He has survived quite well, even doing washing, cleaning and cooking - things he certainly never did at home! I hope I haven't jinxed it, now I've said it out loud. I wish him (and his housemates) well.
I may be able to cross one thing off the list soon. I dug it out to work on while thinking of my list.
Take care everyone - particularly those in the fire danger zones and areas where the high temps are expected.
PS- Sorry no pics this post.
