Reaching out for Stars?

I already decided not to make any crafty resolutions in this New Year - I feel they are causing too much pressure. BUT somehow I MUST pull myself up! Because myOPAM list was ALL TOO SHORT in 2010... and I'm really ashamed of it!!

My UFO -list is so LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG... should I join this challenge - “Sew It’s Finished” 2011 UFO Challenge OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG... that it will never end!!!

Ok, I have to do something to get my quilty pride back!

In this year
I'm aiming for the stars, not avoiding UFOs,
... I know I always start a new project before finishing the old...

by focusing on my monthly projects, which I'll announce here at my blog
which I'll call FIXED STARS!

1. Sew borders for Gardener's Journal. I'm thinking of doing pieced backing...
2. Sew and finish Le Petit 'Mon Ami'
3. Stitch block eight for Butterfly Garden (finished block 7 yesterday)
4. Sew along Cheryl 1880's Sampler blocks
5. Sew three CWD blocks, January 6, 12 and 18
6. Sew four SBS blocks
7. Stitch some Life is Beautiful -stitcheries
8. Knit woollen socks
... did I forget something...

THIS year 2011 is
here in QUILTTALES' corner
a year of FIXED STARS;)))

Let 's them shine brightly...albeit till the end of the year!

Good luck with your stars. We all have very long UFO-list. Your not alone on this one, we all support you. I have joined that challenge and maybe my list will shorten this year.

There are a lot of challenges these days... I have too little time to sew, so little will be done, but I'll try to make all the January blocks from CWD this month!
By the way, could you send me your ordinary address, maybe I would send you a little present in the new year! Hugs!

You are like me... always starting new things before finishing the UFOs.
Maybe I should join you so I get some of my work finished,too.

You do what you have to do so it will be a pressure free year. Just enjoy! Happy New Year Satu!

You have a lot of beautiful projects on your list, and they do deserve to be finished. Having something to focus on is good!

Have you seen my new year's resolution? Before I get to start a new project I have to finish an old one, perhaps something for you, seeing as you write: ".. I know I always start a new project before finishing the old...".

Have fun, and I look forward to seeing some finished stars on your blog in the months to come :o)
