Several people are rolling out link parties and challenges with resolutions for the new year, so I thought it was a great opportunity for me to look back at my 2015 list and see what I did there!

So this is the 2015 list, with the current status of each project.
  1. Xmas tree decoration for 2014 - done one for 2014 and one for 2015!
  2. Pumpkin's play mat - done!
  3. the SK project - some progress here, not as much as I hoped
  4. Tea Towel challenge and PPV BOM - done and has been decorating my living room for most of the year
  5. Reversible sewing machine cover - done and has been keeping my sewing machine for many many months!
  6. College Days Blog Hop blocks for tote/grocery bag - done and it's holding my xstitch projects
  7. Alice in Wonderland quilt - no progress here
  8. As You Wish - no progress here
  9. Happy Halloween wall hanging - done and hanged in the living room in Oct/Nov
  10. Crazy optical illusion - no progress
  11. Bonnie's Hunter Grand Illusion - dropped, didn't like the design, but I am up to speed with Allietare!
  12. Color of the Year mini - done, preparing the 2016 one!
  13. D wall hanging - done and gifted
  14. B quilt - dropped for now, maybe forever :)
So basically I had 14 items on the list, 8 of them are done, 2 were dropped probably forever and the rest... I think I may carry them over because I don't want to give up on them just yet!

On another note, there are a ton of projects that I didn't have on that list at the beginning of 2015 but they started and got done in 2015. I will feature all of them in a post at the end of January for my blogoversary! I think I accomplished a lot, but I need some time to collect them all in one post :)

And now... what about 2016?
Let's make another list!!! Let's make it longer so I will accomplish more!! :)

  1. Play with Me QAL - this is a QAL I am hosting, so I don't just plan to finish it, but I plan to cheer everybody along, offer giveaways, inspire and get inspired!
    Today I had a post discussing fabric, so if you are interested, just click and check it out!!

  2. "Jane Tiger, the Nearly Insane Wife of a Farmer" - I want to complete my version of the Dear Jane, Nearly Insane and Farmer's Wife quilt. I already started it and it looks fun!!
  3. Block Swap Adventure quilt - I have been swapping blocks for about 2 years now, so I should have enough to put together a quilt! 
  4. Charity quilts for Fran and the Quilts for DC General Homeless Shelter project - I plan to have 12 quilts done for her... let's see if I can make (or pass) that goal!!
  5. Americana QAL - finish my version of this quilt and gift it to my dad probably for Xmas
  6. Play with Me 2016 QAL (secret) - all January posts are ready!!
  7. Allietare QAL - I plan to complete this quilt, and probably donate it for charity
  8. Pantone Color of the Year 2016 - my traditional wall hanging has already been designed!
  9. The SK project - here I need real progress as I wanted to have it done by 2017... it's a big quilt done in very small blocks so I need to get this rolling!!
  10. the 31000 Xs project - a cross stitch project that I started and I would love to get done... eventually :)
  11. Spirit cross stitch project - this is supposed to be a Valentine present... well... not sure if I will be able to pull it off, but I will try!
  12. Mirror Mirror Afghan - a tapestry crochet afghan, I was very passionate about... and then I was not :) crochet is like that for me, ups and downs! :)
  13. Alice in Wonderland quilt - I have several blocks done, just need to find some motivation to finish up some more
  14. As You Wish -  same comment as 13.
  15. Crazy optical illusion - same comment as 13. :)
  16. Memory quilt 2 - same comment as 13. :)
This list is shared in for the following link parties and challenges:
  • Yvonne ( - 2016 Planning Linky Party
  • Sandy ( - 2016 Quilty Resolutions Challenge (not formally announced yet), but she talked about it in her podcast.
    These are the 3 projects I want to put as my "Cleaning House" items:
    • Block Swap Adventure quilt (3. above), because those blocks have been there waiting to be used for about two years
    • Mirror Mirror Afghan (12. above), because I have a sitting box full of yarn and I want to be able to use the space and enjoy the afghan before the end of 2016
    • the SK project (9. above), I highly doubt that this King size project (all the opening lines and book cover of Stephen King's books) is going to be done by 2016, but I want to have it done for Sept 2017 to honor his 70th birthday so I will put this here to get some momentum. I have about 30 blocks done already (see here) but I have many more to go!


  1. Thank you so much for linking up! I agree that big lists can be fun because it means you have more items to cross off as they get finished. You have some big items that are already well underway, too. I hope you have a wonderful and productive 2016.

  2. You accomplished a lot in 2015 and have set many more for 2016. Very impressive. Enjoy your 2016 journey.

  3. Go you can.My list is finish to quilting a quilt,I hanquilting.

    Have a great New Year!
