    This year I would like to do the following things:
    1. Clean organize quilting room, organize fabric and clean up after each project.
    2. Finish a quilt for a friend - Christmas gift
    3. Make a quilt for my daughter's 40th birthday (March)
    4. Stay on task with quilting friends.
    5. Quilt at least 4 tops that are completed this year.

    That sounds like enough for now. Happy quilting to all.

    I am hoping to make forward progress on my DJ, complete three quilt tops, and hand quilt one.

    1) Start working through my small projects that are in various stages. (I am good at starting something not finishing it.)
    2) Take a few tops to be long-armed.
    3) Bind the 2 quilts that need to be bound.
    and this is the most important...
    4) Set aside one evening a week (from after I get home from school till I head to bed) and spend it in my sewing room! Maybe then I might accomplish some of my above goals.

    First of all, start relaxing and enjoying the process more. Less worry about perfection, more completion.
    Pam B- I had a similar thought. If I could go straight to my sewing space a few days a week after work (teaching), I could get so much more done and I bet, be a happier person.

    There are some wonderful goals listed here. I do hope at the end of 2012 we re-visit this post and see how we all did with our resolutions!

    Mine are:

    1) Complete (without falling more than one week behind) my first Block of the Week adventure;
    2) Practice FMQ as much as possible;
    3) Spend time in my sewing room at least 4 times a week; and,
    4) Learn a new technique (maybe applique?).

    I am excited about this year - I think it is going to be a good quilty year!

    1. Complete my Michael Miller BOM this year (2012) that will be starting next month without falling behind.
    2. Finish my 2011 Michael Miller quilt (ready to go on the longarm) and start the matching bedskirt and finish the 2 pillow shams.
    3. Teach a monthly Sylvia's Bridal Sampler and complete 80 blocks.
    4. Learn to foundation piece.
    5. Finish my cousin's Turning Twenty quilt (cut out ready to piece).
    6. Complete a queen size Turning Twenty quilt for my DS and DDIL.
    7. Become active in the quilting quilt I joined. (It is in Little Rock, AR a 3 hr drive from me. They have a lot of outside speakers and some workshops I want to take.)
    8. Have fun!

    I've never had good luck with this one!

    My resolution is to buy more Batiks. A lot more. I have all manner of prints but I never make anything out of them because nothing strikes my fancy so they sit. When I go fabric shopping I buy blenders trying to make something work, then stroll by the Batiks and think of all the things I could make with them. When Batiks go on sale I'm going to replace my print fabrics for equal Batik yardage and donate the print fabric to charity.

    I want to quilt using my STASH. I really do NOT need more fabric.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Oh my - my quilting goals (resolutions) for 2013, to finish 2-3 UFO's, buy no new fabric unless in dire need of a fabric fix, reduce my quilting book/magazine library, sell some fabrics and books, organize my fabrics, make 10 charity quilts, become a "quilt for kids" co ordinator for the Eastern Shore/Delmarva.
    If life gives you lemons, make a margarita.

    My goals for 2013:
    1) an hour of housework
    2) an hour of bookwork
    3) an hour of exercise
    Then I can quilt guilt-free for the rest of the day!

    I should do that as well. My goal is simply to sew more and get more finished. Just harder now to escape upstairs now that we have an empty nest. probably that's why I'm getting more knitting done.

    I totally did not meet my goals for 2012. Remodeling and health issues have really affected my quilting progress. So, I'm going to make some changes for 2013 so that I do a quilting thing at least 1/2 hour per day.

    I would like to use just from my stash, but when I see fabric I lose all self control. I quilt everyday and I should spend more time cleaning my house but I love to quilt. I would sew all day everyday if I could.

    1) Get my sewing room organized, painted, carpet pulled up, etc.
    2) Finish quilts that are pieced.
    3) Sew every day.
    4) Learn a new technique.

    Finish my UFOs, only work on projects that inspire me, use only stash fabric, make ten charity quilts (at least half or more of these could come from my UFOs!), clean my sewing room and organize my stash..

    Next year is the new fit me.( feel as if spent this year not sewing due to 2 operations)

    1. Make at least one quilt a month for charity and finished
    2. Make more quilted totes and bags.
    3. Make me a new bed quilt.
    4. Donot be distracted when I see a new technique or pattern I like and do it.

    It will be difficult to do 4 so others may drop down.
    Finished is better than a UFO

    I would like to spend some time each day quilting/sewing, and I really like the idea of setting aside one evening a week from end of work to bedtime in my sewing room...finish my almost finished projects.....make my first quilt from beginning to end..

    Mine is the same as last year. I need to spend less time on the computer and more time in my very well equipped sewing room.
