I am going to join up with Barbara again next year in her NewFO Challenge. It's really not much of a challenge for me to start NEW projects anyway. My challenge comes with being able to FINISH the OLD ones. LOL
Now Barbara and many of those that join her in this endeavor make a rather exact list of projects for the new year. I didn't last year and I don't think I will this time either. I planned to use some of the templates that I have
hoarded accumulated over the years. I even bought some new ones this year that I had to add to the list.

I still want to do some tutorials on these templates for you. Let me know if there is a specific one you would like to learn more about and it might get moved to the top of the 'to do' list.
I also I want to join the RSC14. I have been reading several blogs, including Barbara's, that participate in this one. Since two of the quilts I have on my list of want to make are Rainbow Color Schemes why not. I want to make a Storm at Sea (have the templates) and also a Dancing Stars by Amy Ellis why not. I will be using templates for the later one even though her directions are for paper piecing.
I also have a new
toy workhorse in the Studio to use. I'll have to post more about the templates I have bought to use with it another time. They are definitely at the top of the 'to do' list.
I also have a new
Then there is the embroidery unit for my new Dreamweaver. I had hoped to get some Christmas Lace Ornaments made on it but so far it hasn't happened. There are still a few days left before Christmas. Maybe it will happen. I'm still reading the manual and can't make it to my new owner classes until January.
That's about as far as I am going with plans right now. As you can see I shouldn't get bored anytime soon. Plus, I have to keep you entertained too!

Sounds like you have a lot of fun planned for this year!ReplyDelete
You will love the Accuquilt Studio. I spend 4 days cutting scraps and now have several containers that have entire quilts ready to go. Plus anytime I have left over small scraps I'll cut various sized tumblers or HST for a good scrappy look.ReplyDelete
Holy smokes. That's an ambitious list. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?ReplyDelete
You are definitely going to be busy and oh my!!!! You have a new Studio! Can't wait to see what dies you have too!ReplyDelete
