Goodbye 2012 and all my UFOs

I have to say I'm not really sad 2012 will soon be behind me. If you've followed me, you will know that the end of 2011 and 2012 have been by far the most difficult year of my entire life with the loss of both of my parents, particularly the loss of my Mom which was very tragic and devastating. The fall out after her loss with the parties involved have challenged me both personally and professionally. However, I feel I am making headway with the latter and so my new life has begun. I look forward to new beginnings on so many levels and I crave some "down" time. Things like sewing for fun again, knitting again, making things for my family....travelling in the new year, family time, fun stuff:) What I like about blogging is that sometimes it helps me to keep accountable. I don't even want to confess how many UFO's I have or how big my stash continues to grow. So, I need to stop buying, finish my UFOs and just keep a list of favourite things to make "someday." I don't know about you but I get overwhelmed with all of the things I'd like to do and then don't get around to finish things I've started! Bad! Bad! Bad:) So, I'm confessing to you's a list of things that I need to finish in the New Year! Scrappy Circles Quilt (need a pieced back for it):
Jelly Roll Quilt(again need another back):
Beach Quilt:
DS Spools Quilt:
Waverunner Quilt (for my husband) which was part of the Unscripted Bee I belonged to:
Drunk Love Quilt I started way too long ago and still have more to complete:( I do absolutely love it though:) Drunk Love Quilt-slowly getting bigger! And who can forget this quilt top I made several years I'm getting embarrassed!Plain Spoken Baby quilt My string quilt: String Quilt Progress My orange and aqua quilt: Orange & Aqua Quilt Top Not to mention my knitting UFOs....aghhhh In the interest of "coming clean," this poncho was originally a 6-12 month size that I finished last year but then it was a little too short on my daughter so I needed to redo the bottom by lengthening it.....and now Miss P is two!!! Poncho for Little Miss P  6-12 mos size I still have a cowl for me that has been on the needles since our trip to Florida last February, etc. etc. I feel better...the cat is out of the bag!! Now, that I've told you I'll have to think about getting these UFOs finished right?! Did I mention that I went to my local yarn shop today and bought some new alpaca wool to make some fingerless mittens for my stepson's girlfriend and that my four year is still waiting for me to finish her little knitted hippo that I started in August of this year?! So, like I said, 2013 is a New Year full of promise:) Thanks for stopping by and I hope your New Year brings you lots of finished UFOs, good health, peace and happiness!
