2012 PhD Kick-off

The vision must be followed by the venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps — we must step up the stairs. –Vance Havner

I like to make lists. I have about six little notebooks floating around that I write down lists of quilting projects in. The notebooks take turns getting lost, so I write and re-write the lists. I keep lists for other things as well, and it is interesting to come across a list that is six or eight months old. I find that the things I write down as important will get done more often than not, even if some of those items are forgotten from list to list.

I have big ambitions for 2012. I'm hoping it will be a productive year. I'm focusing primarily on PhD's this year. I'm sure a couple of new projects will pop up. Both Ladybug and Grasshopper want me to make them quilts. I have the fabrics for them. But I'm going to try to hold them off as long as I can so that I can finish a few things. My goal is to finish all of the PhD's on this list in 2012.

Project Polka-Dot

Pinwheel Sampler

Halloween Quilt

Woman's Work Quilt

Metro Blues

Patriotic Sampler

Twilight Block of the Month

Twilight Quilt

The weather around here is a little chilly, so it will be nice to stay indoors and work on these quilts. And since I think Zooey Deschanel has a dreamy voice, here's a little winter {not Christmas} music to work by.

Way to go on your plans. Finishing WIP's is on my list too but I'll intersperse it with some new projects.

Looks like you have quite a variety of projects there too E!

Great goals, Elizabeth! Love the polka dot project materials! How'd you like cutting those pieces with your GO cutter?

I am going to attempt the 'Finish' list again this year too. I haven't blogged anything since Summer so I need to get ont it! I finished a few things and didn't even take pictures of them! >:{ Maybe if I take pictures of my Phd's and post them I will be more likely to follow through.
