Whoosh- that seems to be the sound of the holidays passing me by! How did it already get to be 2013? My last blog post was right after Thanksgiving and now it is a new year- where did all that time go? I have been under the weather and trying to catch up on reading all the blogs in my reader- I am down to 920 posts to read… I haven’t checked my Yahoo mail in ages and I am sure there are about 4000 emails to read. Yahoo doesn’t like my computer and kicks me off the internet every time I try to read them.  It seems that every blog I read has a post on goals for 2013 and finishes for 2012. I have enjoyed reading them so much I decided to add my 2cents worth too. Right now my main goal is to get rid of this bug and get back on schedule.  I have decided not to make resolutions; rather I am making monthly goals. January’s Goal is to sort out my closet and get rid of all the clothes I do not wear. I also want to make a couple more coin purses and get the baking done that I haven’t been able to do. My brothers want their Christmas cookies J

As for finishes- I worked feverishly on Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning to get gifts done. The Granny’s Domestic Bliss Quilt is done; I also made a kindle cover for my sister and quilted her name into it. Lots of fun FMQing on those. My littlest nephew wanted a stuffed kangaroo (he is my AzariahRoo and he calls me the mommy kangaroo) All the other kidlets have a PJ pillow but Azariah wasn’t here yet when I made those so I figured last year to make him one and it didn’t get done. Christmas Eve I got started (I wasn’t using a pattern) and it was coming together nicely except I didn’t make the belly big enough for the PJ’s. oops.

sorry about the bad photography

It was way too late and looking too cute to start over, so Azariah still doesn’t have a PJ pillow but he does have a stuffed Kangaroo and I think he likes it. I will try to post more pictures soon.

There are some really fun hops going on! Mrs. Pickles has some Quilting Secrets being let out of the bag and over at Madam Samm’s there are lots of Words coming soon. (makes me think of the song from My Fair Lady – you can hear it if you click this.)   Hope you are having a good start to the new year and lots of fun quilting and sewing are happening around your house- as for me- I am going back to bed...  oh wait I have to work....I am leaving early and then going back to bed!

I want to make it a point to visit my followers blogs more in 2013... I will have to spread the love because my followers have increased but I will make it around from time to time to everyone!
