New Year's Resolution

OMG - two blog posts within days of each other.  I looked at my stats today and saw that I had actually posted 3 times so far this year and this makes #4.  Boy, what a slacker!!  So, one of my resolutions for 2013 is to post more often because I actually do things here "in the birds."  With that goal in mind, I will concentrate on posting on Mondays to show you my design wall and/or whatever else I am working on.  Wish me luck!!

BTW, my other two resolutions are to lose weight and exercise, AND to work on my UFOs.  I've been trying to straighten up my sewing room these last few days and it is amazing how many unfinished projects I have found under piles of books, under piles of fabric, under piles of batting, under piles of ...  To prove my point, here are 2 BEFORE pictures of my sewing space:

Note UFOs on floor!

Cutting?? table
Now, my design wall.  A UFO from 2007, it is a signature quilt that was a Jo Morton's Little Women Club project.  Just need to finish the sashing and border.  Don't know what fabric I picked out for the border and nothing in my Jo Morton stash seems to work.  Guess I'll have to go shopping!!  You can't see it, but there's another UFO behind my design wall...a wedding quilt that just needs a binding.  That should be my first project I think!!  Maybe it will be done by next Monday.  Stay tuned for my next progress report!!
