Read on to find out what I can cross off...

6 out of the initial 20 finished and 2 nearly finished, not quite half-way there but not too bad, if I say so myself!
Of course in the meantime, I have also worked on other projects (purse for UR priceless for example, Super Mario blocks), started some new ones... but then I am a hopeless joiner anyway!
I am linking to Kelly's blog. Hop over there to see where everybody is at in their lists!



  1. nice work! i love the colors on your tote bag.

  2. Love the bag for the Mouthy Stitches swap!

  3. That pouch bag for the mouthy stitches swap is really cool. I love the way you quilted it. DO you have 30 blocks left for the Farmer's wife or are you making a smaller 30 block quilt? That will be my project for 2013 :-)
    keep on hustlin!

  4. You got so many things done! Love the tote bag and those little baskets!!
