While I'm not wild about making New Year's resolutions, I do usually make a list of goals for the coming year. There's less guilt involved, you know! After much thought, I've made the word FINISH my word for the year and am hoping that it helps me achieve at least some of the goals that I wrote down in the back of my planner.(Yes, I use the old fashioned paper type!) I also wrote FINISH at the top of each calendar page, hoping that it will be a reminder. We will see.
I'm also joining Leanne, the host for the 2013 Finish A-long, which kicks off on Monday, January 7. I'll be making a list of some WIP's that have been waiting way too long to become finished quilts. My goal is to make a Friday Finish report on how I'm doing each week, hoping that will help keep me motivated to actually DO my word of the year and not just talk about it!
I guess that I can work on a start and a finish at the same time, right!
By the way, a few months back, I used one of my Joann coupons to buy this great ruler. I'd borrowed one from a friend during a quilting retreat, and decided that it would be better to buy my own than to accidentally walk off with hers!
Because of it's large dimensions, this ruler is perfect for the WIP I am working hard to finish.
I've worked so hard, that I actually got the blocks all made and the top put together as of last night. Now, I'm waiting for some more Kona coal yardage to arrive in my mailbox so that I can add a border around the outside before I start the quilting.
A very patient boy needs this for his ninth birthday, don't you think?
Uhhh....did I mention that his brother has a birthday just a few days before his and he wants a quilt too? "When are their birthdays?", you ask.
Oh, not till February.I've got
Holy heart failure, Batman!
