My first Work In Progress report of 2013!


2012 was a busy year for me taking part in 5 bees, 2 qal’s, 7 blog hops and life of course got in the way most the time. I really felt like a learnt A LOT and tried things that I would have NEVER tried on my own. However, I didn’t really get a lot done for me. 

My goal this year is to finish one of the projects on
my no progress list every month!

So for 2013 I cut back on the bees and although I am hosting 4 I am only taking part in one. I am not going to actively take part in any quilt-a-longs unless Sue over at QuiltTimes runs another one this year. I am going to pick and choose which blog hops I take part in over at sewwequilt.com instead of taking part in all of them even though I really want to take part in all of them..lol I think that this will give me time to actually make some projects for myself this year. 

As Always I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

My January to do list 

We Bee Learning: Depression blocks for Dee in pinks, purples, blues and white. I have the fabric picked out and cut.

Complete Christmas table runner: I started this back in June and restarted it in November. However, life got in the way and it never got done. I want the trees to be the middle and the qst to be the ends...I want to add blocks in between, but not sure what yet

  3. I so know what you mean and I too am limiting the other events that I join in on so that I can get some of my "To Make" list items actually done.

  4. I so know what you mean about getting things done. I did not finish a single UFO last year and cannot tell you how many new things I started! Good luck on your goal for finishes.

  5. Lots of projects on the go! Thanks for telling me about the "words" blog hop. I have been checking them out! I started a journal quilt full of words! So timely!

  6. That is the problem: the internet gives us so much inspiration that we have no time to finish something. Good luck with your own projects this year.
