Happy New Year! 2013 Crafty Goals

Happy New Year! I'll be honest with you. I am not a big New Years person. To me it really is like any other night, and any other day, but it is fun to walk around and think "it's 2013". Do you remember being little and thinking "how old will I be when it becomes the year 2000"? And now that was 13 years ago! LOL. Yeah it means I'm getting old.

As I catch up with my Google Reader blog roll, I see everyone is doing these 2013 goals posts. I'm not a resolutions girl - things like exercise more or eat better - well I made great strides in 2012 and pretty much plan on keeping with that into this year - no major changes needed!

But crafty/quilty goals - those I could use! Like many people I work full time, I'm a Mom, busy with other stuff, but admit while I want to do more in Sewrenity (my sewing room), I don't do near enough.

So here are my goals for 2013:
1. Finish the music quilt I started on for my husband in 2012. Poor fellow always wonders why everyone gets a quilt but him.
2. Finish the Strip Twist Quilt along I'm doing with my online quilting group.
3. Finish two Washington Quilt Shop Hop quilts. I go almost every year and now have about 5 or 6 unfinished quilts from blocks I've rec'd and I'd like to get them done!
4. I want to make some doll clothes for my daughter's dolls. I have patterns, I just don't do clothes sewing and pattern reading very well. I am sure you tube has a tutorial on everything!

I think those are good goals! If I focus I could be done mid-year. I am trying to avoid all quilt alongs and such that I see on my google reader because there are so many wonderful looking ones, but they would distract me from my own personal goals I think.
