A Lovely Year of Finishes...January goal

Thank you to 
Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts and 
for hosting the linky parties every month.
It definitely motivates me to finish a UFO once I am committed.
A Lovely Year of Finishes
I have been procrastinating...I've changed my mind many times...
but I have finally decided to use the hand embroidered blocks I stitched 
about 4 years ago and make a lap size quilt.
I will use 8 embroidered blocks and complete a quilt top...
that will be my goal for January.
I have enough blocks to make 2 lap size quilts.
If time permitts, I will work on the piecing for the second quilt.

I won't have any difficulty finding a UFO for each month in 2014.
The difficulty will be to do it... while preparing to move back to Canada.
It will be a challenging year!!!

Happy stitching...

Oh I so love your Stitcheries!

Those are adorable! I'll be watching your progress with interest ... I have a set of embroidered and beaded blocks I need to do SOMETHING with - maybe I'll be able to piggy-back on your layout!

Hey Pauline, I've enjoyed peeking over your shoulder. Like you, I truly enjoy embroidery so your embroidery journey has been tons of fun for me.

Cute embroidery blocks. Moving back to Canada? Moving anymore to me is such a daunting task, maybe I have done it too much throughout my life. I can't wait to see your finish, and best of luck getting ready to move.

I think they still have to be my favourite snowmen. I treasure mine.
Good luck with your plans for UFO finishes this year. Yes, moving will definitely cramp your style!
And remember the word "NO". :)

Hi Pauline when are you coming back to Canada. Have you made decisions on where you are moving to yet. We just moved our daughter to just outside of Stratford this weekend but it isn't too much further away .
Those. Will make sweet lap quilts.

Sometimes the toughest decision is what to finish! The stitched blocks will make a gorgeous quilt. Can't wait to see how you finish them.
