While I enjoy making items for others - especially those I have been following prior to the swap - I have decided that it is about time that I make a few items for me, my daughter ... and maybe even some of the handmade gifts I've thought about making for friends, but just not
I decided to join in with Barbara's 2013 NewFo Challenge ... for those of us without a whole bunch of UFOs to work on ... and so, without further ado, these are some of the items I hope to start in the coming year ...
1. "Once Upon a Time" by Melly & Me for my daughter.
2. Camille's "Swoon" by Thimble Blossoms.
This one I am making especially for me. I've not yet decide which fabric range I am going to use in this quilt, but I have got it narrowed down to either my FQ bundle of Ruby (also by Camille), or Nine Dots fabric for Henry Glass.
3. Thought & Found's "Oh My Stars" quilt along from earlier this year (2012).
4. The Farmer's Wife Sampler
And lastly, I am also thinking of joining in with ...
5. Leah Day's "Express Your Love" wallhanging sew-along when she starts in later in January.
... On top of all these, I am determined to finish off my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt (by mid-January if possible!), finish off another AHQ I've had to work on for far too long (sorry Jan-Maree!!!) early in the year, make a few bags - Melly & Me's latest handbag pattern firstly, to replace my current (and falling apart) handbag - and make an effort to make at least one item to go into a handmade-gifts-for-Christmas box each month.
So big plans, have I ... and this is just my sewing plans for 2013 ... more on that to come *wink*.
