Is it still time for a resolution?

January is coming to a close, and I’m not usually one to make New Year resolutions.  But this year I’d like to change that.  It took me almost the whole month of January to figure one out.  Are you ready?  I’m going to finish up all the projects I have going and *gasp* only work on one at a time after that, with the exception of knitting afghans of course since they take so darn long.

What a great idea!
What a great idea!

Why a light fixture?  That is one of the projects.  I updated almost all of the fixtures downstairs, but there is one that is still sitting in my garage in its box, waiting.  Waiting for either me to give it a go or to call and electrician.  Perhaps I’ll call this week…perhaps.

So here’s the tally of what I have going: 3 quilts in various stages (the one above is almost done; all quilted up waiting for binding), a knitted baby sweater, a knitted afghan that will take forever but be awesome, a wooden table and chair set for the kids that is built but needs to be painted, reupholster a couple of chairs, hang chandelier above breakfast table, refinish an end table, plant a garden, and build two sets of bunk beds.  OK, that last one is for the husband to do, but I may help him.

I firmly resolve to complete these all within the year!  Yes, I have to give myself a loooong time.  Remember I have 5 kids that I homeschool, so give me a break!  My “carrot” for finishing all of this?  Why, painting the Kitchen cabinets of course!  It’s ok if you don’t think I’m normal.  Neither does my husband.

**Quilt above is Anna Maria Horner’s Birdcage on a Chain pattern using Joel Dewberry’s Aviary 2 fabric.  The light fixture is the Star Ceiling Mount from Ballard Design.

  1. I need the same resolution. I need to finish one project before starting another. You should see all my unfinished items!
