From A - New Year, New List

I didn't really set any New Year's resolutions this year but the more I got thinking about it I do have quite a few crafty goals for the first part of this year. As more and more things began swirling around my head I realized that it was time to make a list!

1) Smitten Quilt

First up finish my Smitten quilt. I started working on this in October with the best intentions of getting it done in only four short weeks. Life stepped up and gave me a smack with the old reality stick and it's still sitting in pieces in my guest room. I want to get the top put together and get it quilted before another 3 months slip by.

2) Ceres Baby Blanket

I started knitting this baby blanket for a friend back in November. Things were going pretty well until I ran out of one colour of yarn over the Christmas holidays and had to give it some time in the penalty box. It is so close to being finished that I think it's time to dig it out, finish off the knitting and get it blocked so I can send it off to it's infant owner while she's still small enough to cover her and it's still cold enough that she will use it.

3) Make a Tova

I bought the pattern for this top months and months ago. I made a couple of Wiksten tanks last Fall and have been wearing them constantly ever since. I could really use a few tops with sleeves to round out my spring wardrobe.

4) Postage Stamp Quilt

I have been crushing hard since I saw this postage stamp quilt at some point during my online travels. Although I tried to find a Central Park jelly roll so I could make one of my very own, I ended up settling for a jelly roll from the Curio line. I've had the fabric forever and am anxious to finally get started with this one.

5) Plus Quilt

Inspired by Kelsey's gorgeous Plus Quilt, I cut out one of my own using the leftovers from my Carnival Quilt. Although I managed to get it cut out back in late November, I still haven't made any progress on getting it sewn together. I'm thinking this will make a good easy finish/instant gratification project to help break up some of the bigger projects on this list.

6) Linky Love

My sister-in-law is getting married in the Spring and I thought she might appreciate a modern wedding ring quilt. When I saw someone testing out Tracey Jay's Linky Love pattern I knew that it would be just the thing. Best part is that I've had this Good Fortune jelly roll collecting dust in my stash and I think the colours will be great for this purple obssessed bride-to-be.

Time to get cracking!
