2. Make curtains for my bathroom. I have the fabric (have had it for 6 months!) just haven't sat down and done them.
3. Paint the shed that RacerDad built. The weather is either too cold or too rainy or if it is pretty, I don't have the time!
4. Paint Cowodie and Smoda's bedroom....they are wanting a cowboy room in blue and tan.
5. Make curtains for C and S's bedroom. Here again I have the fabric (red bandana) just need to sit down and do it.
6. Learn to use the digitizing software we bought to go with the Designer I sewing machine. My sweet RacerDad is the one who loves to sew and is fascinated by the embroidery function, but I am the one that NEEDS (his word) to learn the software so I can explain it to him. Now why can't it be the other way around???
7. Make curtains for the guest room, also some coordinating pillows for the bed. Can you guess...fabric is purchased, just need to do it!
8. Sell quilting books, quilting magazines, cookbooks and Precious Moments on Ebay. These are things from my mother that I have gone through, kept what I wanted, gone through again and it is time. These things fill the guest room closet until you can't walk in, they also fill some of the shelves in my closet and I am in major declutter mode!
9. Paint Speedy B's room....his choice is a baseball room (what, he likes baseball???). He wants it the exact same shade as his bedroom at the old house. The only problem, that color was an "oops" paint from Home Depot.
10. Of course after I paint Speedy B's room what do I need to do? Make curtains! Do I have the fabric? Do you need to ask???? Lovely antique baseball print, just begging to be curtains.
11. Stay current with the classic novels being read with the blog group Knit the Classics. In January we are reading The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. I enjoy his work, I read The Moonstone several years ago, but it took longer than a month.
12. Complete the heritage scrapbook album I have begun. I have a chest of drawers that my mother had moved from my grandmother's home when Gram died. Two of the drawers were jammed full of pictures....great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, misc. aunts, uncles, cousins. Do I know who all these people are? Unfortunately, no. I have gone through and made piles of the ones I know, by close examination I was able to determine quite a few. But with no family left that I can ask, I have thrown away a lot as well. A friend asked me how I could throw away pictures, my thought is should I keep them just because my mother and grandmother did? If I don't have a clue of the identity and don't have anyone to ask what are the boys going to do with the pictures? So I threw them away. This weekend I am going on a scrapbook retreat, hopefully I will finish this project.
13. Keep up with my knit alongs.
When I go back over this list, it looks a little daunting...but hey I have 348 days. Right??
