What I'll be working on the next few months

Every so often in 2012, I would notice that many of the blogs I follow would write a post referencing the finish-a-long.  So, yesterday when I saw Leanne's post that she was hosting the 2013 FAL, I looked at the details and decided to join in.


1.  Not surprisingly, the first thing on my list is the Scrappy Trip Along.  Since this is basically all I am working on right now, I am thinking I will most likely have it finished by April!  



2.  Next up is the novelty print quilt that I am making for my youngest daughter for when she moves into a bed - probably within the next year.  I have a pile of fussy cuts to sash and then I need to decide if I am going to make it a larger version of this quilt or something else entirely. 

3.  I don't have any photos to go with #3.  One of my 2013 goals is to learn about and use interfacing.  I  ordered some shape flex and I plan to use it for some type of bag or pouch this quarter.

Those are my official FAL Q1 projects but while I'm at it, here are some other things I plan on working on the next few months.


4.  I'm planning on dusting off my crochet hooks and/or my knitting needles - not sure what I am going to make though!


5.  I also really need to organize my photos - and maybe even actually order some prints!  

6.  Additionally, I have made some progress on my 2013 goals that I wrote about here.   I purchased the Woodland Sampler Cross Stitch (I still need to get the supplies though) and I plan on joining in with Alyssa for her Skill Builder Block of the Month.

  8. I know what you mean about organising photos - I last organised about a year ago and last did a major print run of the best ones when my eldest daughter was 3 and a half (she is now 6!!!)
