Last projects of 2015

Okay so it's now 2016 and time to think about what I'll try to accomplish in this coming year.  My goals are.... to not purchase any new fabric this year but instead to use what I have.  Now mind you this was my last years goal but I had family come stay with me and that family wanted to learn how to quilt...so.... that includes learning to shop for fabric  YIKE I have NO will power whatsoever! Can you believe that!
Anyway, there will be NO interruptions this year to my goal.  I have absolutely NO more room for even a fat quarter.  I have to use up what I have so I can purchase more...or...  we could move and pick a house with a larger craft room??? that is an idea.  :)

My next goal is to finish as many UFO's as possible so I can get new UFO's.  I'm tired of looking at the ones I have and there are so many new quilt patterns out there that I want to make.  I've made a list "to do UFO" list and give each UFO a completion date.  I hope this helps.  But before I can even begin on those I have to complete 2 block swaps and 5 quilts I'm entering in the 2016 quilt show our guild is having Feb/Mar this year.  These quilts all need the sleeve sewn on them as well as labels.  Mr. Potato Head needs borders and quilted.  I've got these all planned to be completed in January so let's hope I can get them done.

These are my last fun projects of 2015.  I'm trying to learn many digitizing techniques and one is learning to create "In The Hoop" projects.  This is my first try at digitizing a little eye glass case entirely in the hoop and completely designed by me :)

Then my final project for 2015 was to incorporate machine embroidery with handwork to create my favorite quote into something super cute.  Audrey Hepburn's I believe quote....  I got the inspiration from the first line and thought to myself...what do you think of when you hear the word pink...  I think of little girls and dresses and of course shopping.  So this little girl is peeking out from behind the dressing room curtain.  She's going to dance around in prettiest dress in the shop.  :)    The curtain was a bit hard but the rest was super easy.  

Happy New Year to you and yours.
2016 here I come!
