Recap of my lovely year of finishes.

Before starting on the projects I want to finish this year I want to look back at what I managed last year. 2013 A Lovely Year of finishes certainly helped me complete some larger projects and so means I enter 2014 with very few quilty UFO's. However I've not looked back over the year to see just how many of my goals I completed, so here goes.

In January I set myself the goal of completing the top of my Dresden plate quilt. February goal was to complete the quilt. March goal complete Holiday quilt top. April goal complete Nancy Drew  quilt. June goal was a Schnibble and in August I completed the Swoon quilt top.Completing the swoon quilt was my October goal. Finally in December my goal was to complete my Holiday quilt. 

In May, July September and November I didn't complete my goals. Am I worried or upset by this? No as quilting is my hobby that has to fit round my family, work and all that life has to throw at me. I am really pleased with the months I achieved my goals. On the months I didn't I was doing something else instead (quite often starting another project rather than working on an existing one.)

It's now 2014 and I'll be joining in with this years A lovely year of finishes and my first goal is to quilt the baby quilt I made last year.

Oopps I've just noticed the time and I must go to bed. I hope you have had a good Thursday and that you all enjoyed the New Year celebrations.
