Monday, January 7, 2013


I kept going back and forth over to Shanna's blog Fiber Of All Sorts to decide whether I wanted to join her new group and be accountable to all my unfinished UFO's. Then she sent me a message to join their flickr group called "A Lovely Year of Finishes". I have quite a few but the one that I jumped into last January with both feet because I wanted to learn to quilt has appeared to be a project that I got tired of. I joined the Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 and stopped when she got to April. I'll be honest I love to cross stitch but I really hate hand sewing. Hexi's to me is hand sewing and I just stopped because I don't like to hand sew. I just received a new email that 2013's BOM is out so I really need to finish this top.
This was the Balkan Puzzle Block from February that I never talked about. Luckily I have done a few more months in the past year and on Saturday sewed June and July's blocks. To finish this UFO I have to finish the months of August, September, October and the dreaded April. Will I get done and have a quilt top by the end of the month with a new UFO for February?  I have no idea what life is going to throw in my way to not let me finish but I certainly will try.
So here we go time to start the year of 2013 with finishes and even new projects. Time to make myself accountable to all the UFO's I've started and never finished. One in particular is a wreath I made over 10 years ago but didn't know how to quilt and never finished so that might be a month.
If you want to join in today is the last day so hurry.
Have a Great Day!

I can't wait to see your finish!

I like your fabric for the BOM. I have watched all the lessons but have not made any of the blocks. That is on my list for this year. I really like how everything came together. I did start one thing. I started sewing hexies. They are really fun once you get started. Have fun with the challenge

I am sure you will find those hexies more fun than you think Judy!

I have joined the 2013 Craftsy BOM, even although I haven't finished the 2012 BOM either! I am not going to make the 2013 sampler quilt but I liked the look of some of the blocks.

Join in with my "New to Me in 2013" monthly challenge for some light relief, the hexies will still count if they don't work out (but I am sure they will!).
