Tis the Season... for New Year's Resolutions!!

I have had a very interesting past month.  Okay.  So not true.  BUT during my recuperation time of not being able to work, sew or type (for longer than a sentence of two at least) I have had a lot of time to think.  Not necessarily positive or productive thinking.  But time to think.  Add to that a milestone birthday coming my way. Yikes!!

The result is a little too much time to focus on the aspects of my life I would like to change.  I WILL NOT bore you with all my nasty little habits.  But you already know my biggest quilting "flaws":
1/ No follow thru to complete projects (aka the queen of the ufo)
2/ Fabric collector

Instead of sweeping promises I can never keep, such as "I won't buy fabric this year" or "I will finish all my UFO's in 2014", I have decided to take a much softer approach.  I am going to pick a quilting and a non-quilting objective every month.  Nothing monumental.  Just an attempt to check some items off of my list in 2014.  What can I say?  I was inspired by Making Christmas and The Happiness Project :)

January's Objectives:
 - finish the top to my son's "Out of this World" Quilt AND bring it to the long arm quilter
-  Book (and actually show up) to see my financial planner

My inspiration was starting (and actually finishing!) the below yo yo tree for Christmas this year.

Happy New Year!!! And Happy Quilting
