I can't believe that it is 2013 already! Where did 2012 go?
For the past two years I have participated in Judy Laquidara's UFO Challenge. I didn't do as well in 2012 as I did the previous year. This year, Judy is changing it up a bit. Each month we are listing four projects that we hope to work on during the month.
My projects for January are:
1. complete blocks and assemble 2012 Buck A Block top
2. complete and assemble Presents top
3. start working on project for my best friend's birthday in March
4. begin quilt for my great-nephew (he is one month old so I have time to get it done before he knows that I didn't have it ready when he was born)
I have been doing a good bit of knitting recently so hope to work on a scarf and one or two hats. Maybe since there is 14+" of snow on the ground I will be motivated to get them well underway.
I also plan to continue working on my Christmas alphabet cross stitch sampler. It will be stunning when it is completed. I didn't start it until I finished my daughter and son-in-law's wedding sampler:
It took me a while to finish this as it is one stitch over one/one thread (30 count) and there were a lot of color changes. I am very pleased with the result as was my daughter since she had to wait a few years for it.
I'll be interested to see what I post on February 1.
