    I have promised myself to finish various UFO's, which, all happen to be queen size quilts.
    I held this year's promise to just use my stash, and only had to buy backing once all year.
    Continue to use up my stash.
    I have signed up for the "Penny Haren's" group on here, but, until UFO's are caught up then nothing else.
    Two of the queen size UFO's are wedding gifts, and one is for my daughter.
    I want to do a couple of baby quilts and lap quilts as well, just to have on hand, instead of always having deadlines.
    Once I get my longarm HQ Sweet Sixteen in June, then I will start something else.
    So I guess I have about six months to clean up the UFO's and re-organize my space to get ready for the new machine.

    January - a birthday quilt for #2 daughter, a quilt to be auctioned for Cystic Fibrosis and finish the prayer quilt for church that got put away for Christmas. February - maybe I will have lost enough weight to start my weight loss quilt - a block a pound or inch lost then make my Downy for kids quilt. March ??? I can't think that far ahead. I need to straighten my stash and reclaim two rooms all year long.

    I want to do a BOM or quilt-along. I'm researching! Maybe the star BOM here.

    I'm making a quilt for a new baby niece and in February will hear the gender of another new baby niece/nephew due in July. So, I know of two baby quilts!

    Other than that, I am not sure. I'm going to be moving into a MUCH smaller space. Just going to see what happens.

    I just got the book "Friendship Strips and Scraps" You piece your scrap strips and then cut shapes to make a quilt. Nothing is color cooridnated so you can use any scraps. I am going to begin using scraps this year.

    I;m going to make a tree skirt for my daughter whose tree is full of cup cakes, candy, and ice cream cone themed ornament. I just got back from wally world where I found a red table cloth that was 75% off that I will make into a tree skirt and embroidery on...the final cost was $2.25 and I bought sets of flannel sheets for $3.75.

    Getting back to the list, I'm making crayon box quilts for the homeless.....I am telling myself that all the scraps that are in the Muli household WILL be cut up and used this year...so far I have 42 blocks complete and 56 I'm sewing on and tons of scraps to cut.

    I have two lap quilt kits to make for my youngest son- to curl up with while watching TV. and maybe start making some baby quilts- I have quilts made for my grandkids weddings and don't have any married yet- one getting married in Oct 2011 so maybe had better get started on the baby things. I can wish.

    Making 3 twin size quilts for my DGN & GNephew 1 will be pink princes's, and the other purple princess and the 3rd John Deere.
    I am also going to make 2 twin quilts for my niece in a western pattern who is an endurance rider and she has a ride coming up in March. Along with that I will be making a table topper called "Ants on the march" to go in her picnic basket. That should take into April.

    I've 2 blocks to finish piecing for my fireworks quilt entry for August. Finish that up and figure out how I'm going to fmq it.
    Then there's blocks to sew together, which I pieced last winter, for one side of my duvet cover. Make the other side and make the cover so we can use it.
    I bought fabric to make a tree skirt for next Christmas, so make that. It's French Braid, so need to learn how to do that.
    Then I've bought fabric for at least 4 bags.
    I've also bought yarn for 2 shawls. Real easy knit pattern, I should be able to make one in a weekend.
    I really should tackle some of that OBW fabric I've bought.
    Oh there's more, but that's all that has specific plans right now.
