Alright...I'll try anything to get more done...

Thearica over at Pigtales and Quilts is inviting all of us to join her in a push to complete more projects each month!  Now she bought this neat chalk board from Dreamstime, but me I will just list my five things that I would like to get finished in January and then link up with her.  And she's giving away prizes!  Go on over there and link up!
So here goes:
1.  Finish one embroidered block on my "Snow Crazy" embroidered quilt.
(Patty and I are doing this together (only in blue) this year.  The pattern is by Jana Davidson at Turnberry Lane)
2.  Finish one embroidered block on my "Bee Happy" embroidered quilt.
(Patty and I are doing this together too!  Pattern by Tricia Cribbs at Friend Folks)
Tricia of the fabulous "Turning Twenty" fame.
3.  Finish one panel on my embroidered table runner/quilt? with the little twister borders.
(Pattern "In the Meadow" by Jana Davidson at Turnberry Lane)
4.  Finish my garden club mug rugs I need for the May meeting.
(13 are done, need about 5 to 10 more)
5.  Prepare my "It's All About Me" wall hanging for Madam Samm's newest blog hop.
(Has to be ready to be posted February 21-28)

Fun, fun, fun

See that new  button on the right....."It's All About Me"!  How fun is this going to be!  I already have an idea about how I want to make myself look...hope I can pull it off.  Madame Samm is always coming up with the greatest ideas and Marlene Bush over at Stitchin by the Lake is one of my favorite bloggers.  Her's was probably one of the first five I started following.
I just finished participating in "In Your Words" blog hop, but I messed up and put it on Bits and Pieces the LQS blog.  But it was still so much fun and I got so many sweet replies.  If you would like to see my project hop on over.
You know, it's a new year, a fresh start! I have so many projects I want to do this year....sometimes it is a little overwhelming. So I decided to take one day at a time. Imagine that!
I have sewed or embroidered for at least an hour everyday this year so far.
I am so proud of me.
And I really am going to try and finish some of my UFO's. I promise, really!
But I just found out that two of my "adopted" children have decided to become one!
They are getting married at the end of March and I am so excited. Ashley has asked me to make her wedding invitations and I am honored. I love designing graphics.
Have a blessed day!
I know I will!
