A new year....new commitments

So, I have decided to plow through my pile of miscellaneous patterns and projects.  The list of the things on the works in progress does not even begin to touch the many things I have lined up.  I outgrow my office and now have things stashed in my husband's office and the guest room.  It is too much.  I vow to complete at least two small projects every month.  I have made great progress on "The Abbey" and am now working on the skies/borders on the left and right.  I think I may have a solution today, and that will be a big help as I can't do the piecing on the last bit of wall on the right until I know the skies/borders fabric.   Never a dull moment.

Meanwhile I must get over socks....  I keep knitting the same one, different pattern, always the wrong size.  Maybe I need to break out and take a lesson but I won't do that until March. 

Other projects include many patterns I have collected but don't know what I'll do with the finish project: a lizard, a loon, salmon from Alaska...so many applique/places I visited things.   Maybe that will be the theme - places I have been --and there can be a rotating display.  Other things are just collections waiting for creativity to strike.  I also have things like some donated fabric for a benefit quilt.   The squares are begun, but I am no where near done.  I am really looking forward to getting on with the many exciting projects and finishing a small bit every day!
