Happy New Year!

I am so looking forward to 2015.
After all it's a new year which brings new hope. I have been thinking this week (the last week of 2014), about what I want out of the new year...besides the obvious (health, love, & happiness, which I am doing pretty well in by the way). I was looking at all of the on line sales that have been going on in quilt shops all across the web and each time I would sit and fill up a cart with fabric for my stash, I just could not get myself to press the send button. HMM, I wonder why this is? Could it be that I am "all stashed out"? Reached my limit of "stash consumption"? No...that couldn't be. I love fabric, I love adding to my stash and watching it grow in size and color. But I do have quite a FEW projects in the works, better known as UFO's (unfinished objects). Sit back and take a look at how many I have waiting to be finished. **WARNING** picture heavy blog post :)

This is the current 2014 Fall/winter Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Grand Illusion 

This is wall quilt that will be hanging in my quilt studio one day

This is a 2014 block of the month quilt from the quilt doodle blog

This will be a circle denim & flannel rag quilt using Grinch flannels

 This is a flannel lap quilt 

Another Grinch lap quilt quilt (The Grinch is an all time favorite in my family and with 5 kids all fighting over the 1 and only flannel Grinch quilt that I made for their father a few years back is not pretty... so there will be 5 or 6  different Grinch quilts in my future to make everyone happy)

The Bali Wedding Star quilt. This will be a king size quilt when finished and it was bought earlier this year to mark our 25th wedding anniversary 

This has been around for a while, it was going to be a lap quilt for one of my kids teachers

So if I counted correctly this makes 61 53 UFOs I have on hand (there are under 20 various sized quilt tops that still need to be quilted, labeled and bound but I am not counting them as UFOs any longer. I plan on fitting them in around customer quilts in 2015). So with all of these UFOs waiting to be done I have decided that for the year of 2015 I will NOT buy any more fabric, I am hoping to make a huge dent in what I have listed here and what ever I finish piecing in 2015 I will quilt them in 2016 (because I am pretty certain I will have to buy some fabric for the backs of these UFOs). So for 2015 my motto will be "finish what I have started"
