Goals for 2014

Ahhh. the flurry of posts summarizing the year we're leaving and the year we're starting. I have yet to do the former, so this will also suffice as my January goal post for the various linky parties.

When we moved this summer, there were twenty-mumblety-something boxes of fabric. FIZ includes both in-progress projects and specific project fabric pulls. 

There's a LOT of both. 

My goal is to finish off one UFO-FIZ for every new-FIZ started.

Starting in January, that's Flirt. All the rows are pieced; they just need to go together and be bordered. It would be nice to have the Valentine's quilt done for the holiday!

And then, in no particular order...

This all should be easy, considering the very minor life goals for the year. 

Like, traveling to Korea to pick up our son. And then dealing with a 2.5 year old who doesn't speak English.

Or possibly running four half marathons in 34 days to level up in Half Fanatics. Which would be after I break 2:20 in January.

But, that's it. Nothing else major!

These won't be a finished project this year, but I also want to work on my BOMs - Ripples and Reflections, and Fat Quarter Stars. That's just one star block every month, and whatever R&R has for me. I think I'm going to set aside one day every month just for that.

I also know there's plenty of other projects that will find their way onto the list - for example, eventually I will get back the blocks for my sister's wedding quilt, my mother still has plenty of wall hangings on order, and who can resist those quilt magazine projects?



  1. Looks like you have a fun year of quilting planned. I hope you can fit the quilting time in with your "minor life goals." ;)

  2. Your quilts are spectacular! Rainbow Sherbet is my fav :) Found you thru Lily's Quilts :) Good luck with all those 'minor life goals' 2014 will be filled with awesomeness for you!!

  3. Love those quilts. Flirt Marks the Spot will be great to have for Valentine's Day.

  4. Great quilts! Have a wonderful 2014; you're more ambitious than I am :)

  5. You're going to have so much fun this year!! And not just the quilts - all your life goals are exciting too! (PS I'd love to know where you found the pattern for the cat quilt - it looks like something I'd enjoy making!)

  6. Sounds like a busy year, but you have projects picked and organized, and partially finished already, so I know you can get them done - they are too beautiful to languish!

  7. Yep, some really great projects there :) I love watching them progress along. Has there been any recent word about the adoption? So much political goofiness to get through!

  8. Sounds like you'll have a busy year, even if you don't join any linky parties! Welcome to "Something Old, Something New", it will be good to have you again this year.

  9. You have some really great projects! I'm looking forward to seeing your finished Flirt Marks the Spot!

  10. I like your FIZ acronym! You'll have some great quilts if you get all those done. Good luck.
