    Use up most of my stash before purchasing any more fabric, and try to donate something I make at least once a month. Oh yeah, start to use up some of the 6 boxes of scraps for projects.

    To finish a table topper I started in class. Make three more rag quilts for GK and design (hopefully) and make a memory quilt for my Stepson's 50th. Also potholders for DIL's next Christmas and some pillowcases for every season for GK's. Phew!!!! Not ambitious...hope they don't all end up in the UFO pile!!!!

    I probably should finish more of what I have started. New ideas continue to dance in my head, but, now that I have a machine quilt floor frame, I need to get more tops quilted, so I have actual quilts, & ready & waiting, should need or desire arrive! Such a lovely to pass the time, & keep us sane, our quilting, isn't it!

    Good luck with the book, how exciting.

    I'm going to start the New Year off working on my time management. I really need manage my time better and get in the sewing room more. I keep saying I'm not going to buy anymore fabric until I get stuff used that I have. Well I better get to using the stuff I have. So sewing more is on my ajenda.

    Learn to stay off here more but I know that is a joke too I'm afraid I'll miss something.

    Use up my fabric.

    Don't buy anymore that's a joke I know but I'm going to try it.

    Finish enough UFO's that I can fit all of my supplies/kits/stash in a closet, without UFO's and stash slung over other surfaces in my home.

    I want to learn to clean up after each project I complete before starting the next. I sew in my dining room and when I clean each year for thanksgiving, it's like an archeological excavation. Layers of scraps, in reverse chronologial order, letting me recall all the projects I made during the year. Maybe I should just entertain more... that would force me to clean more often.

    AQS is always looking for new authors, you might check their website for details on how to submit ideas. They are wonderful to work with.

    make things that make me happy and bring others joy, use up my stash, tackle the wolf/thor the hammer quilt project I have in my head for my son, finish the wedding star for my anniversary gift to hubby, design something really unusual for my eldest son, who is a proud army guy. perhaps give him the glacier star I'm going to do....and I'd like to keep learning new things and challenging myself on more and more complicated projects. I want to try my hand at needle turn applique - why does that scare me so??

    Kim,

    I can help you with this. Just box part of it up and send it to Kentucky. Instant stash reduction for you and stash builder for me. A total WIN/WIN!

    Take a pattern out of a book and do it...Since I've started I just do things in my head. I'd love to try a traditional quilt...

    My resolution is to make a second quilt for our bed - so I have one for fall/winter and one for spring/summer. Only difference will be fabric selections. Also resolve to start working on next year's Christmas gifts so they will be done and ready early. Also have dressmaking software to learn and start making clothes for me!

    I signed up for a class in Feb-March to make a jacket from a sweat shirt. It's something I have wanted to do for a long time.
    I also need to make gift quilts for a new baby (due in a few days) and a wedding (next June).

    My goal is to finish as many of my UFO's as possible. And I have quite a few! Even though some are completed tops that just need to be quilted. In that case, I am hoping to have the $$$ to have one quilted every 2 or 3 months!

    Trying to use up stash also. Get projects done that I have put off. This means using all the fabric that I purchased to do those projects. My want to do list is getting bigger.
