Year 2012 Projects

 "Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present"     -Jim Rohn

Welcome 2012! This year I am planning to be more involved with my blog and YES....I will have a giveaway on my blogiversary (February 23) I wanted to show you a nice homespun FQ stack I got on Ebay for my rag quilt project......
There are 25 DIFFERENT patterns and I have about 5 yards of another pattern I may use for the back if I don't decide to use just these.  So now I am actually going to put the rest of my quilting plans in print so as to try to hold myself more accountable: 
I have also decided to join the "It takes 2" Mystery Quilt-along at SentimentalStitches , together with Dear Jane
 The January patterns are up right now at SentimentalStitches and the next patterns will be available at Dear Jane on January 15.  I think I have decided my two fabrics will be teal and brown to match my bedroom decor.  Still have to buy the fabric....eeeeee! 
In addition I am quilting with the Block Lotto
Join me on the Block Lotto Blog
Our project for this month is the Eclipse block.  I will post mine as soon as I am done...........
.....and, of course, remember I already said I would make a banner for each season (yes, I said "season", not month) of the year to hang on my little banner hanger from Irene.....and I still have to finish my Americana tablecloth for 4th of July....and my crazy quilt is still there....
EGAD!  I'd better get started!  Okay....I am really not putting the Crazy Quilt or the Americana tablecloth on my list of "do-its for 2012" because then I wouldn't have a UFO to talk!

Wow! Looks like you have a full plate now and an official UFO. Not to mention all the WIPs. Those acronyms were driving me crazy when I first started blogging. I still run into one I don't understand from time-to-time. I'm excited about seeing all your projects when I get back to El Paso. WTG!
