Resolutions for 2015

Apologies for the long absence. I have been a little bit busy with Christmas etc. My blogging is sporadic at best, so here comes my first resolution: Blog once a week. 
  • Join the Finish Along 2015. This year On the Windy side is hosting it.  Let's hope this will spur me on to have more finishes. 
  • Get better at curves. In a view to achieving this I aim to finish this winding ways quilt. Only nine blocks, so not too hard. It should then be big enough for a baby quilt. Luckily one of my friends had a brand new baby girl on new year's eve. 

  •  Quilt my rowan red and aqua log cabin quilt. I have the back. I have the binding. I just need to go out and buy the wadding. 

  •  Quilt Shirt of my back scrap trip quilt. This top has been finished for almost a year. Better get this sorted. I have everything I need I jus haven't done anything about it. 

  •  Make eight bibs. Two for each baby due at husband's work. This needs to be a Q1 project as all the baby's are due between now and March. 

Not overly ambitious I know. There is a whole long list of other things I want to make and need to make. I am fairly sure that the daughters have outgrown most of their summer clothes and then there are the dress up days at school and school disco to consider too. 

I would like some new skirts. Husband wants a quilt to take in his car. I know there are at least three quilts I have pulled fabric for. I also started a red white and blue scrap quilt, which is making slow progress. 

Wish me luck with all this. 


  1. You have some fun projects on the go! Good luck!

  2. Great projects; I love the fabric combination in your Winding Ways quilt. Good luck with your finishes.

  3. Winding Ways is on my quilting bucket list. And I love your shirt quilt - I'm collecting my husband's worn shirts. I probably have enough for at least two quilts, but I keep putting it off. Silly me! Can't wait to see yours.

  4. I like your rowan quilt and look forward to seeing it finished. Good luck!
