Happy 2017 – An OMG Year

Happy New Year my crafty friends.  I truly hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season and that 2017 is going to be happy, healthy and prosperous for you.

My Navy son is home for the new year.  He returns to Japan on January 14th so I’m not spending very much time being creative but I am having a great time with him here.

I have so much to share with you but I’m not going to do it in just one post.  I owe you an update on some things from the last post…waaaay back in November.  YEESH!  But today I want to share about my plans for 2017.

I’m not one to make resolutions and I haven’t had much success over the last couple of years on my personal goals.  This year, though, I am turning things around.

I’m going to start with participating in two monthly linky parties – that I'm sure will help me bust some UFOs.  The first one is One Monthly Goal (OMG) hosted by Patty at Elm Street Quilts.  The second one is 17 UFOs in 2017 hosted by Meredithe at pomegranate and chintz.

Today I’m going to share what I plan to accomplish for the January OMG and then tomorrow I’ll share my 17 UFOs in 2017.  I still have to take photos for that one.

January OMG – Mini Valentine Quilt


This is something that I want to finish piecing, quilting, binding and labeling for enjoyment in February.  I’ll share the finish (YES! I must finish) at the end of the month and include all of the details.

It is an overcast dreary day in southeast Florida today.  Could it mean we may get a break in the heat?  It certainly hasn’t felt like winter here, even by our standards.

Hope the sun is shining on you today…

  8. Love your OMG blocks. It's always nice to spend time with family. Enjoy time with your son. Can't wait to see what you've been up to. Thanks for the UFO links. I'll have to check it out because this year I am going to literally make scrap quilts to use up old fabrics and finish my UFOS.

  9. Looking forward to watching your UFOs get busted this year! Oh, and about that weather - hang on, a blast of winter is headed your way. The latest front is moving through our area over the next 24 hours and there are even predictions of sleet or possibly snow for the northern parishes. I'm sure some of that winter chill will last all the way through to Florida!

  11. How fun! I love the fussy cut block centers.
    We had a short "winter" cold spell, then it got warm again. Now we have potential snow this weekend (I hope not!) I am not a fan of snow (or cold weather) -so no snow would make me happy even though it would disappoint many of my friends.
