Looking back and thinking

While thinking about this past  year, I realize that a year is nothing but the amount of time it takes for the earth to go completely around the sun.  Next year it will begin it's the trip all over again. So with that mindset, then the completion of a year is not a sign of things are ending, but  more of a realization that life repeats itself.   We'll have a chance to do everything again; perhaps this time better, more comfortably and with a bit more joy.

So I will be sharing some of my wishes and wants for 2013.  Some of the items on my lists wil be the some of the same you might have seen in the past years, but hopefully this year a completion for it will shine through.  I truly am an optimist despite always listing more than I can usually ever get done.

My  completions for 2012 consist of:

Ice Bracelet
The Tila WAVE Bracelet

The Big Easy
Patchabilities Ball Canning Jar
Patchabilities Spring
Four Baby Quilts
Inunkshuk Tabletop Quilt
Cheryl's Chris' Quilt - Deer Panel center

DIsh Rag
Edged 3 Fleece Blankets with Double Crochet

Pincushion/Ort Bag
Sewing Machine Cover
Slap Bracelet pin cushion
3 Halloween Cross Stitch Pillows
Laminated Project Bag
2 Beach Bags for youngest grandchildren
2 Laminated Storage Bags for Fans
Slap Bracelets for grandchildren
Help w/ McKenna's Doll Quilt

Cross Stitch:
Framed BBD Easter
JOY Country Cottage Needleworks design framed
Passion Sonia Scissor Fob - Shepards Bush Design
Life's Great - Bianca Scissor FOb - Shepherd's Bush Design

In this next year myintention is to complete 4 quilts besides do much of the above listed items too.  I am always amazed at the many bloggers who complete a bed size quilt a month and know that would truly  be a stretch besides a major accomplishment for me.  So if I can do four, it would make me very satisfied.

My Getting it Done list of four for January that I hope to get daone are:

  1. Another Block for Lil' Miss Shabby BOM from 2011 finished 1/2/13
  2. Finish The Big Easy Labeled and done 1/4/13
  3. In Your Own Words tutorial for the 14th  completed the top 1/14, will be quilting and finishing it in February's list.
  4. Viking Knit Bracelet completed completed 1/22/13
The fourth one listed will be a stretch for me, especially since I'll be leaving at the end of the month to vivit my Mom at out state.  It's been quiet aroudn here since before Christmas since the grandchildren have only visited when their parents were here so I've had more time for myself.  Seems nice despite it being quiet.

Happy New Day and Year,
PS:  Here's a peek at what I'll be sharing towards the middle of the month.

Great list. I'm happy to see I'm not the only one working on the birds still! I just found my last two blocks ... and then discovered I'd traced the same design on them, so now I have to figure out which one I left out!
