The tree is down, decorations put away and the house is spotless. Time to focus and reorganize. I’m telling myself…stay on track.

Do you know how hard that is when the weather for Chicago this January has been amazing! Walks without snow boots and sitting outside on the patio. I actually saw my neighbors sitting around a fire pit a couple of evenings ago!

So please forgive me for my lack of postings. I’ve been preoccupied with chirping birds and long walks:)

I have been working on this years list of projects. Although, I have to admit that I didn’t finish one thing on 2011’s list, so I’m going to keep it simple this year.

One of last years projects has been moved to 2012. CrabApple Hill’s pattern, Nesting Time. I’m determined on this one!

I want to make a Kaffe quilt. I’m thinking a scrappy Carpenters Star would be fun.

And last, get a jump start on all those handmade Christmas gifts this year. I’ve already got some ideas!

My work list is much, much longer!

Did you make your list yet? We would love to know what you’ve got planned for 2012.
