2011 is over already!!

I can't believe that 2011 is over and we are already two days into 2012.  I have taken a few minutes to look over my lists from last year.  Overall, I am pleased.  I listed 13 projects on Judy Laquidara's ( UFO Challenge and I completed 9. Between the quilt show in the end of October and three major events at home (dinner for the quilt show committee, Christmas lunch for my bee and an open house the week before Christmas) I didn't have a lot of time to sew.  I did finish a few projects for Christmas though.  Of course, I forgot to take pictures - I'm hoping that the recipients will help me.

I created a Project List for 2011 and made some good progress on it also.  I didn't get quite as much knitting done as I had hoped but I made several things - again no pictures.  I will try to get better at is this year.

I think I am going to join Judy's 2012 UFO Challenge if for no other reason than to spur on myself to complete some small projects.

My bee is going to have a PIGS Challenge (Projects in Grocery Sacks).  We will all put in $3 each quarter (the equivalent of a fat quarter) and Jack or Jenna will draw a number (1-4) each quarter. At the end of the quarter everyone who has completed her project will have her name put in the hat and one lucky person will win the $$$.  I have been giving lots of thought about which projects I will list.  I keep sorting through my bins - I have more than enough to qualify.

I hope all of you had a productive year and will make good progress this year.

Happy New Year!
