Holy Cow!! It's January!

I can't believe that it is 2013 already!  Where did 2012 go?

For the past two years I have participated in Judy Laquidara's UFO Challenge.  I didn't do as well in 2012 as I did the previous year.  This year, Judy is changing it up a bit.  Each month we are listing four projects that we hope to work on during the month.

My projects for January are:

1.  complete blocks and assemble 2012 Buck A Block top

2.  complete and assemble Presents top

3.  start working on project for my best friend's birthday in March

4.  begin quilt for my great-nephew (he is one month old so I have time to get it done before he knows that I didn't have it ready when he was born)

Other hopefuls:

I have been doing a good bit of knitting recently so hope to work on a scarf and one or two hats.  Maybe since there is 14+" of snow on the ground I will be motivated to get them well underway.

I also plan to continue working on my Christmas alphabet cross stitch sampler.  It will be stunning when it is completed.  I didn't start it until I finished my daughter and son-in-law's wedding sampler:


It took me a while to finish this as it is one stitch over one/one thread (30 count) and there were a lot of color changes.  I am very pleased with the result as was my daughter since she had to wait a few years for it.

I'll be interested to see what I post on February 1.

Good list. I like that you have four reasonable things to do, and hope for more.
