2014 will be a busy year

I need to get hand-quilting on this........this is going to be mine for those chilly nights watching tv or snuggling with the cats- my idea of a "modern looking" dresdan

need to get him out of trouble........

need to get her out of trouble....... boxes are surely a cat magnet. this little one found one teeny box in my sewing room that was filled with stuff and she decided to squish herself into the box........until it toppled over and down she came. she stood there for a while just looking at the box as if to say why did you do that?

need to find and do something with these......I am thinking a baby quilt- I think they are already sewn together if I am not mistaken........hmmm.......relaxing robin??? 

need to find more red and blue in stash and make a small duck quilt

need to get him out of trouble..........he is always in my laundry. so far, has not ventured into the dryer and I am so thankful! (I didn't just jinx myself, did I?)

need to find a backing and quilt and bind this one up. this will also be mine....
a lap size...... love this from a one day retreat
and I used my own ideas for the border
(actually I got lazy and didnt want to make any more blocks so took the pieces I had and bordered it- a happy "accident")

need to find this and add a small border. quilt and bind and give to a little girl I know.....
I had bought a yellow  background alphabet kind of fabric and never finished as I wanted the words to all be upright and I think I was short (I will ALWAYS be short! I meant short FABRIC!)
I am thinking to just relax and border it already 

need to finish this up as a runner for the kitchen or for a gift. I no longer have chickens in my kitchen (well, not REAL chickens, unless you are talking about dinner)
my old apartment had chicken wallpaper and this was supposed to be for that kitchen.
but I like the fabrics and it reminds me of a guild challenge we had many years ago as we made placemats for meals on wheels. we had a challenge and all who took the challenge got some fabric. we then added to it and made a placemat. there was a prize for 1st,2nd,3rd as was voted on by guild members who attended the meeting and then all placemats were donated. they encouraged multiple placemat entries . The meals on wheels used them at Easter time when they delivered meals the recipient also got a placemat to keep.
how cool is that?

anywho, by the looks of my list, 2014 is going to be a busy busy year!

You will be very busy! I have a small quilt I should baste up and do handquilting on - have always wanted to do the Baptist Fan.

You have lots of great finishes to do. I have binding ready to sew while watching tv this week. When done I will have completed 3 wip's this month. Many more to go.
