Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I hope to save up for a new and better sewing machine so that I can get excited about finishing my numerous UFOs. And to add lots of new fabrics to my stash. Doing both of these would make a great YEAR!

To figure out who I AM as a quilter. To stop doing everybodyelse's patterns and start making quilts that make ME happy.
Finish putting together the tops that I have the blocks made for. If I get all that done it will be a big accomplishment.
To sandwich, quilt and bind some of the gazilion tops that are already pieced.
To take the blocks that are pieced but I no longer want to make the quilt and make table toppers of them.
To get rid of more of my stash by making bazaar items.
To totally rid myself of some of the things that I have in order to get my upstairs into sewing rooms that are functional for something other than just storing a huge stash.
If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.
Here is a really awesome techique using cookie cutters. http://www.thriftyideastoday.com/201...-cutters.htmlI am waiting for my felting tool. I bought at joanns online with coupon. I can't wait to try it. I have a big snowman that I am going to try it out on. so many cookie cutter are 50 to 70 percent off right now.
I want to start sewing for Christmas using my stash.
I want to try fmq on my husky, finish 10 donations quilts for David's House (10 year cancer remission gift), reduce my stash, only buy fabric for a specific purpose, qoos (quilt out of stash) whenever possible, finish UFO's, and visit all the favorites under quilting and eliminate some (over 100+ sites).
If life gives you lemons, make a margarita.
You all have such good resolutions and high hopes for the new year. I plan to practice, practice, practice on the longarm, stop wasting so much time that could be productively spent, and use up some of my stash.
Mine is to do quilts that I've already settled on a pattern and have the fabric. Make pillowcases for ConKer Cancer between making quilts. Start my Halloween and Christmas quilts six months before the date.
