Plans for 2015

This is one of the things I finished before Christmas. Matching sleep pants for my kids and a tie around the neck for Frankie the grand dog. I did very little sewing for Christmas.

I have been toying with my sewing/quilting plans for 2015. Our guild is doing a challenge to finish a UFO each month before starting something new. I have decided to take the challenge. I have picked my January project to finish from my pile of projects. I have decided to quilt the matching table cloth for this one.

I am able to locate the top, backing and batting. I will spend my Saturday pin basting it and get it ready for machine quilting. I have already decided what my new project for January will be. I am going to try once again to make a baby quilt every month for our Kid's Komfort program thru the guild. And of course sewing for Elly and my sister Patty. I have dress fabric for Patty and night gown fabric for Elly. And a nice tote bag for Tania, Elly's mommy. I was able to snag the bag I wanted to use a pattern from Tania before they left for home.

I am also going to start hand quilting my Christmas quilt and work on my Grandmother's Flower Garden. And find a good lender and ender project. I have a couple of ideas for this.

Also still working on my no buy fabric diet. It is working out pretty well. Just don't seem to be making any progress using my stash.

There is only one other project that needs to be completed in January, it is time for my Continuing Education for my Pharmacy Technician certification. I swear every time I am going to do one CE each month, but that is a lot of talk and not much action. Check back at the end of the month to see where I am on this goal.

Time to get ready to go to work. First night back in over two weeks. January and February are our busy months and no PTO hours available. Tonight will be tough as I did not get much sleep today.

In stitches,
