last year wasn't a complete success,   i resolved to not buy more fabric all year.   i made it longer than i thought.   the plus side is,  i ended up with a lot less fabric total, so i am working down the stash.  too many people come into my studio and just start laughing away. 

  so this year, my resolution is to keep chipping away at the stash and have a net loss at the end of this year, too.  

  second resolution is to have fewer ufo's at the end of the year than i have right now.   deep breath, gini,  you can do this.

My resolution is to make as many quilts as possible.  Learn some new techniques.  And finish some UFOs.    And go to as many retreats as possible.

Resolution....I do have a stash problem, so AGAIN I resolve not to purchase fabric until I move out more of the stash.  I also have an attention deficit problem, so I resolve to stay on track and complete everything I begin.....I am getting older and my memory is not so good these day...I may not be able to remember my resolutions by next week. 8-)

I resolve to spend at least 4 hours a week sewing. I also resolve to get my stash down and not buy any material I absolutely don't need - after today that is 8-)

Ditto your first two resolutions...my 3rd resolution is to clean and organize the sewing room so I can walk into it without stumbling over something.

New Years Resolution:   1. Win the lottery.     2.  WIn the other lottery.

Real NWR:  1. Make a Bible themed wall hanging for our Church.     2. Get the UFO pile finihed and gone!.   3.  Buy more fabric to build another UFO pile to work  on in 2013.   3. Win ALL the lotteries.

This is what I want to do to. Those UFO's just take up precious space. I want to especially get some of those 'old' ones made into at least a charity or car/picnic quilt so i can claim that space for a new project!

I also need to buy a lot less fabric this year, my stash is getting years ahead of me. Need to close my eyes every time I see a great fabric sale!

LOL Nana. I don't make resolutions (too much pressure) so this will have to do.

Hey, Barbara - ME, TOO!!! We are TWINS!!!  :D  (,my BD is in March.... ) but then, my son's BD is the week before, and for the last - oh, I'd say, 20 years or so (since he turned 12) we have just been celebrating HIS, and I stay in the shadows.... 

You and I should go to Vegas or something.....
