End of the year finishes

I like to plan ahead...and I love to get the new calendar for the upcoming year.  All those empty boxes just waiting to be filled in with things to do, classes to take, and projects to start and finish (among other things).  I haven't been able to take as many quilting classes as I'd like to the last couple of years, but there are a lot classes coming up in 2012 that I'd love to get in on.  Do you have any classes you'd enjoy taking this next year?  I'm hoping to take another machine quilting class and an applique class as well as attend a retreat, but first I need to finish some already started projects.


I don't know what happened with Birdie Stitches.  I got started late on it, got caught up, and now I'm really behind again.  I finished these two blocks last night and I'm hoping tonight to finish two more?!  Last Friday night I cleaned my sewing room, we put new light bulbs in the fixtures so I have good lighting, and I'm hoping tonight to be in there sewing away for FNSI.

One more thing...if you haven't signed up for the Connecting Threads thread pack giveaway you have through tomorrow to enter.  I have really enjoyed reading all the comments and hearing about how color influences you!  There are also 100 followers now so another fun giveaway will be happening soon...  Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

I hope you had a great FNSI, your birdie blocks are lovely. Hmmm, I'm not sure about next years projects, I still have the Vignette and hexie quilt but I would like to make a quilt for my daughter!
