Well into the New Year

Day Two of 2010 already. Many people seem to think the thing to do is to set goals. Yes, goals. Not resolutions. I'm not any good at keeping resolutions but give me a goal, especially one with a due date attached to it and it's pretty much done. At the moment, my goals are as follows:

1. Start, and finish, Christmas/birthday gifts for my brother and sis-in-law. Time just got away from me and I didn't get theirs in the mail. Their birthdays are in February, so that's my time limit.

2. Continue finishing the BOMs I embroidered and/or appliqued the past year and gave to Brenda, April and Judy. I sent Brenda six months worth of the calendars and April and Judy have the first three months to display. There are my deadlines - Brenda needs hers by June and April and Judy need theirs each month starting in April.

3. I also need to work on a quilt for a client and her brother. She brought me tons of police badges that they want incorporated into a quilt. If anyone has ANY ideas on how I should do this, PLEASE send me your thoughts. I figured I'd quilt-as-you-go since I'm sure it will get extremely heavy with the badges.

Here's a little K picture for your enjoyment. This was taken on Christmas Eve. Rob and April and K spent their New Year's Day with April's family as per their tradition. I hope they got some really good pictures of our baby doll at her first New Year's Day/Christmas family get-together! hint, They came over to our house afterwards and we all went out to Shogun's for a final Friday night dinner with Judy until she gets back here for a weekend.

Back to my goals..
4. The most pressing goal is to help get Judy moved to Las Cruces. This coming Thursday will find us on our way there to set her up in her temporary digs. Please pray that the weather stays nice for our trip there and mine back.

There are many, many other "goals" but I won't bore you with the details. Suffice it to say that my sewing room and extra bedroom will get a facelift this year, or else! Jim is very diligent about keeping the rest of the house decent enough for company and I hope he knows how much I appreciate that, especially the appearance of the "dish fairy" every day or so. lol

It's Saturday morning and I need to get ready for work. I will try to get to work early to replace calendars and set out the new Scentsy warmer. Check it out at

Oh, last, but not least..I need to take the few Christmas decorations down that finally went up a few weeks ago!
