A Lovely Year of Finishes, hosted by Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of Bittersweet Designs kicks off this month. To play along, all you need to do is finish one project a month- whether it's a WIP or new project is up to you. Check out the details here and join in if you need a little push to finish up some projects!
The project I've chosen for January is one that I've blogged about several times- the Urban Chic quilt for my 11 year-old son.
It's now partly quilted (I started quilting it New Year's Eve whilst waiting for the ball to drop to ring in the new year), so I'll need to finish the quilting, then bind it. Christmas present 2011 will finally be completed!
I've also resolved to make a quilt for each family member. The phrase "the cobbler's children have no shoes" comes to mind. My husband and children have pointed out countless times that I've made quilts for others, but they are quilt-less. A glaring omission that will be addressed this year. Martina's Poetica quilt is next in the queue and will be my February project for ALYOF.
My last resolution relates to physical fitness. Playing with the kids at the park yesterday made it quite obvious I'm not in the best shape of my life. Healthier eating habits and more physical activity are my mantra this year so I can keep up with these kids:
So what are your resolutions for the new year?
