Some Plans for 2014

Wow!  It is hard to believe that it is 2014.  I ended 2013 on a good note - I was upright on both feet (in November of 2012 I fell and tore all the ligaments in my foot and was in a cast and boot for several months). Enough of that - I plan to have a great 2014.

One of my plans for this year is to use up some of the many, many,. many fat quarters I have bought/received in recent years.  To facilitate this I have started a tracking chart to help me with my plan.  I will be posting in the Stash Report that Judy Laquidara posts to keep myself motivated.

My daughter, who is in my bee, came up with a great (?) idea for our bee.  We all have cutting tables that seem to be covered with a lot of stuff - using them means frantically dumping everything off and then loading it back on.  To make them usable we are now going to get reminders on the last Sunday of every month to clear them off.  That means putting things away where they belong (I will never find them again I'm afraid) and keeping our tables relatively clear.  Our first reminder will be next week - I will have to start today or tomorrow so that I can clear mine off by next Sunday!!

Here is my first fat quarter report:

Fat Quarters In:            0

Fat Quarters Out:         5

Not much but it is a start.

I have gotten off to a good start with projects this year.  Our bee had our first workday a week late due to the snow.  We had a great time together and I finished two things - I didn't get a picture of the pillow but will for the next post.  Here is a picture of the laminated bags I made:

I also got a new Kindle - the cover I made for my old one was just a smidge too small so I made a new one. I love the colors and I used three fat quarters.  Yea!!!!!!!

Hope your new year is off to a good start.  Go over to Patchwork Times to see how others are doing with their stashes.

Love your projects! Working with laminate is still on my list. Do you have to line your bags?

You're off to a good start with the FQs, and don't blame me for the cutting table was a group discussion!

Kris - I did not line the bags. They were easy and quick to make.
