I also have several UFO 's to complete.

6. Finish appliqué blocks from MaryWalker Blue quilt
7. Finish appliqué border from tweets quilt
8. Bind and quilt Mary Walker blue quilt(dreaming here)
9. Bind and quilt Tweets quilt(another dream)
10.finish paper pieced blocks for midnight at the Oasis quilt
11. Make new quilt for son with blocks from UFO
12. Make a Christmas wall quilt for daughter
13.make 3 robes for gifts
14. Make animal placemats for nieces gifts
15. Design jewelry and knickknacks for 12 days of Christmas gifts

Wow, my list is way too big!
Before I end the post I want to say thank you to all my cyber friends who ordered the bracelet set. I was able to send my girl back to school with some extra cash!
I leave you with a picture of the Baby girl  quilt I am quilting.

I wish my list was this short. Good luck.

That is quite a list. I hope you can accomplish it.
I am not able to see the pics of the quilt, but I am sure it is going to be beautiful.

I am going to try to use up a lot of my stash this year, including all my pre-cuts. I also want to quilt all the tops I have made over the last few years and share them with others.

I have the same goal this year. I want to use what I have unless it is needed to finish a project. I wrote a list of UFO's that I would like finished and flimsies I need quilted. I need to do this for about five years to tell you the truth. LOL

Jean said...

That is a long list, good luck with that!

Sherry said...

Good luck with the stash usage. I've joined FA also. . . have more stash than I know what to do with! LOL

Barb said...

Wow, you have quite the list but I have no doubt that you will get them all done. As for no fabric buying???????

Lynne said...

I, too, am trying not to add to my stash of fabric or yarn and have enough projects lying around to keep me going for a while!

Sheila said...

Good for you making a list, I think it might scare me if I were to do that ;-) I also am trying to use up , I think it is a really great plan .

I wish you the best with your 2014 goals. I have been reducing my purchases for a while too. Trying to buy only what I need instead of something just to put in the stash. You've got quite a list, but most of them are finishes. I am sure you can get them done in no time! I am the same way. I try to intersperse a finish between every new project and make sure I finish what I start to avoid any new UFOs!

I keep finding more things to add to my list. I think I have about two years worth of projects.
