Blog Hop Party
What do you have to do?

1) Leave one comment only telling me which New Year’s Resolution you kept this year? If you didn’t keep one, which one do you’d wish you kept?

2) Join my blog as a follower, by clicking on the link at the top right that says “join this site”

One of my New Year Resolutions was to change my needle for every new project I started…a very practical resolution and one that was very easy to keep. I  did manage to stick to that resolution, mostly…and there were no guilt trips if I didn’t do it straightaway.

I’m looking forward to reading your stories!

2) That’s it…no more tricks or finagling…

Comments close on December 17, ( I’ll be headed to Florida for Christmas soon after that) I will draw one lucky winners name from the group.

I will ship out your prize on December 18th, you might even have time to make one of the Wall hangings and get it on the wall by the 25th for that special day or to give as a gift!!

Thanks for taking a walk in the woods with me all year long…

I hope you will tell your friends about the hop and all you new readers I hope you will take a moment to go to the top of this post and click the “Join this site” button.

Happy Quilting

    Yes, I would work on the wall hanging before Christmas!!!

    I did not make any resolutions, non to not keep but I did stay on my diet. That is a really good thing!!!!

  2. ANNA

    I would love to win your giveaway especially at this time of year. I don’t make resolutions as I know I never keep them. Love your work and wish you a good Christmas

  3. Deb

    I made a resolution to clean my sewing room after each project was completed, and I really wish that one had worked out better.
    There’s always next year.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. AnneP

    My last year’s resolution was to make my borders more interesting, not just sew on plain fabric – for the most part I have done this – pieced borders, extending the pattern into the border and so on.

  5. Teresa in Music City

    Love your giveaway!!!! I made a resolution to ENJOY my quilting as a hobby is meant to be enjoyed, instead of letting myself get stressed out by my own imposed “deadlines” etc. For the most part I have accomplished that and enjoyed my year tremendously!!! This year I plan to FOCUS more on only doing those projects that really speak to me instead of splintering myself up into so many projects I don’t even know what I’m doing next :*D

  6. Suztats

    My resolution was to focus on stitch work this year, and I signed up for CQJP 2012, and TAST to keep me on track. So far, so good!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win some goodies! I’ve been good!

  7. DuAnne

    Merry Christmas to all! I never seriously make any resolutions because I never keep them! If I did keep one it would be to go to the gym no less than twice a week! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  8. Cheryl Gebhart

    I’ve never been a resolution-maker, so there are none to keep (or fail to keep). But a few years ago, after searching for something in my sewing room, I discovered WAY too many UFO’s, and I resolved to finish some of them before starting a new project. I did finish many of them. But now I think I need to make that resolution again!

    I would love to win your giveaway!

  9. Chris Chambers

    My resolutions last year were to try and get more exercise and finish some of my UFO’s. I was only moderately successful–so those will be my resolutions again this year! Thanks for the giveaway and have a happy Holiday!!

  10. Cassandra

    Beautiful fabric! My husband and I made a resolution to get out of credit card debt and to stay out of it. We paid off our last credit card in late spring and haven’t used one since! It’s liberating not to have the extra monthly payments. 🙂

  11. judi

    As far as resolutions go, I failed. But there is always next year. One of my resolutions was to enjoy making things in my sewing room. Didn’t start anything fun, but did finish a couple of ufo’s, so perhaps after the holidays I will be able to enjoy creating something new and fun!

    I will spend at least 1 hour each day on patchwork, quilt and my sewing machine. I have not made New Year’s wish before, but now it must be tested.
    Good trip and Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones – thanks for the great giveaway.

  14. Connie

    What a wonderful giveaway, I would love to win some of your hand dyed fabric to work with your pattern! Oh my gosh…..I can’t even remember any of my New Year’s Resolutions……hmmm maybe it was to keep adding to my stash and of course keep on quilting 🙂

  15. Quilting Babcia

    My resolutions this year were to make each of my six grandchildren a bed-size quilt for Christmas, and to learn free motion quilting. I did both, I’m delighted to report! Have not decided on a resolution for 2013 yet. I’m a follower via email.

  16. Cool Cats and Quilts

    I actually do not make New Year’s resolutions, I am pretty sure that I would not keep any! I use the excuse that it is my birthday! I look forward to reading your blog, and hope you check mine out for a chance to win there.

  17. Sowing Stitches

    I didn’t really make a resolution…never do. But My goals for the year were to have work accepted into an art gallery and have work published. 12 of my paintings were in a gallery this year and 1 of my quilts was published in a quilting magazine. Setting bigger goals this year! 🙂

  18. Connie

    What a great Give-Away! My resolution (which I am STILL working on): If I’m not going to say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all! I’ve done pretty good with this one, actually. Thanks…Connie in California

  19. Textile Recycler

    I showed my work publicly this year which was a resolution… but didn’t finish a UFO each month, which was another. I am in love with your hand dyes and quilts! Glad to be following now! I have my fingers crossed 🙂

  20. Paula

    I didn’t make a resolution but I did accomplish part of a goal. Getting quilts made for family members. I got 2 done. 2 more to go.
    Love the giveaway. Good Luck to all.

  21. Lisa

    I kept my new years resolution to lose weight! Amazing huh?! I’m down almost 25 lbs since I last saw you! Still a ways to go but it’s a great start. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  22. Lori

    i had decided that i would get healthy and loose weight over this last year. i am healthier now and i have lost 60 lbs. this next year is to keep up what i have been doing.

  23. Sherry

    My resolution was not a very wise one, I was supposed to complete projects and not start any more until I did so. I will never try that again, there are too many new ideas I see and just have to get started on.

  24. Gloria

    My resolution was health related. I decided to strictly follow guidelines for controlling diabetes. I did and it worked! Lost 10 pounds and lowered my blood sugar readings. My goal this year is to up my giveaway to charity quilts.

  25. Andy

    I promised myself I would make time to learn how to make wonky art quilts and I did and I LOVE them. I love the process of putting together fabrics, sewing them into strips, and cutting them up – over and over – until I have pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that I love putting together! What joy! Thank you for your beautiful designs and fabrics – so inspirational!

    I already subscribe to your site. My resolution is to clean up/reorganize my quilting room. It needs to be less cluttered and the work surfaces cleared so I can come home from work and sew.

  28. KRubin

    I don’t typically make resolutions because I never keep them. But, I bought a gym pass in April and went several times a week until August. I would like to get back into that groove again!

  29. Barb

    I am so bad at keeping any sort of resolution, that I don’t make myself feel guilty any more and so just don’t make any. Changing the needle for each new project though – I could maybe do that! Thanks for the idea.

  30. MissEnota Minnesota

    Hello from Minnesota! That is the most exciting giveaway so far; I would love it! January will be the start of my second year of machine sewing so I’m resolving to wipe away my WIPs/UFOs before they get too far ahead of me.

  31. Sandi

    I didn’t make any resolutions this year but I did set some goals and have been diligent about getting out of debt and losing weight.I plan to do more artwork this year
    especially with color and thread painting and yes make smaller projects.

  32. Prairie Stitcher

    Hey, that was one of my resolutions, too….change the needle. Now it’s the end of the year and I’m almost out of needles! Thanks for letting us visit. I’m a new follower and a fellow blogger-hopper-giver….so drop by and follow me too. See you soon, I hope. Prairie Cottage Corner

  33. Sheila

    I resolved to finish TWENTY-FIVE UFOs this year, taking part in a challenge…..and I did it. Now on to lots more new quilting projects….Thanks for the chance to win!

  34. Judy B

    Fell short this year. I wanted to keep up on my BOM’s. Life got in the way, but they are on my list for the coming year. Thank you for the great giveaway. I am a follower via Google and e-mail.

  35. Lis

    I am a follower and my new years resolution after seeing a picture of myself at Christmas was to loose weight. Started Weight Watchers on January 25th and at this point I am 20lb lighter! Woo HOO!!

  36. Mom C

    I don’t make resolutions since I don’t keep them but later in the month I committee to run for an elected office. Many. many times this year I wanted to quit and opt out of the process. I hate campaigning! But I stuck it out and actually won. My resolution this year is to take all the time necessary to be current and clear on the issues before the board I’m on. Thanks.

  37. Sarita

    I didn’t make any resolutions last january, but this january my resolution is to write 250 words a day… hopefully I can keep it!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! 🙂


  38. Sandra

    My resolution was to grow out my fingernails so that you could at least see the white. I have done that but my nails just break. I know I will never have long fingernails but I did keep my goal. I am hoping that 2013 brings many more followers your way. Thank you for the chance to win all those goodies and making the Party so much fun. Happy Holidays.

    Frieda, I have so enjoyed following your blog; thank you for great inspirations.
    I kinda stopped making resolutions because I could never follow through with them. BUT…I did loose some weight this year and that was on my resolution list for years and years and years….! Does that count?

  40. joyce

    I did not make any last New Years. I had just got out of the hospital and knew I was going to have a major surgery. I ended up having two this summer. this year my goal is to have more time to have fun.

  41. Lynn Makrin

    I love your hand-dyed fabrics. Can’t wait to win! HA!
    I would love to make time to exercise regularly. I just don’t have it with two small kids and a “typically needy” husband. Maybe 2013 will be better.

  42. Tammy

    Love your blog. And I am following now. IMy resolution was to make more time for me and do more things that make me happy. And I have succeeded in it. I may have gotten lazy . But My new resolution for next year is to finish my UFO’s and try to sew more and read less.Thank you for a chance to enter into yoru giveaway.

  43. Nanbon44

    on Jan 1 every year I start a new cross stitch project with the goal of completing that year.. I have met that goal.. I also set a goal of making 24 quilts for my charity group and I managed to double that number.. This coming year I will be working with my husband to get his health back on track…

  44. Nina Marie

    Well – this is the first time I’m putting this in print – I said I would resolved to lose 50 lbs and I did! I went from a size 16 to 8 and I feel a ton better!! I want to lose 15-20 more this year (I’m only 5 ft tall!)

  45. Margaret

    My resolution this year is to try all types of quilting designs and try to design some of my own. My resolution last year was to take care of my sick husband without losing my patience at some of his request .

  46. Barb

    My goal this year was to finish my started quilt projects before starting more. I did fair with this goal. Wish I would have finished more but I do have to say I started fewer new projects and finishing the started projects.

  47. BizyStitches

    Thank you for being in this fun blog hop. Merry Christmas. I am a follower. I usually don’t make any resolutions because I have a hard time keeping them. But I do what to learn more about using my longarm in the next year and be able to quilt for friends.

  48. Jodi - usairdoll

    Every year I want to be healthier and loose weight. Well for the last two years I have met that goal. I’ve just tried eating better and being more aware of what I’m putting in my mouth.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.
