January Goals and New Family Member

Happy New Year to all my dear friends here in blogland and to those friends I am yet to make.

Making a list each month seems to help me keep on track so I'm going to start out 2012 with a new list for my January goals. But first, here is how my December list finished.

Month 9 - Block 15 of Because I Said So BOM
Inchy Hexagon Swap Flowers
Home Sweet Home BOM - 'M'
Quilting on quilt for brother
Bind and finish 'Citrus Splash'
Block 5 - Red Delicious
Just the one goal that didn't get done so I'll roll that one over to January. However I am giving myself a deadline to have my brother's quilt finished by the end of January...no more rolling over for this one.

Month 10 - Block 16 of Because I Said So BOM

Complete Friendship Stitch Around

Work on Queen Bed Quilt - UFO

Quilt and bind brother's quilt

Prepare next Red Delicious block

1 Xmas Item

Find fabric ready to sash 'Calendar Quilt' - UFO/PhD

I mentioned a new family member and here she is. This is Pippa who was a lovely Christmas gift for DD from her boyfriend. She's such a talkative little character and I think had everyone amused.

We have 3 grand-doggies and 1 grand-kitty...my 2 girls were not impressed when they came to visit.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2012 with ample time to relax with needle and thread.


  1. Pippa looks gorgeous! Is she a Burmese cat? Good luck with your January goals :)

  2. Good for you Narelle... lists definitely help! Cute addition to your extended family :)

  3. Awww the kittie is so cute. Good luck with the January goals. I haven't seat mine out yet for the month/year. Now my spare room is free again i can get in there & work out things. Hugs,

  4. Very cute Pippa... you do well with your goals... I think you make much more achievable ones ... good luck with January.. there's a fair bit there...

  5. well done on your December list, January's list looks pretty good too.
    Love little Pippa's surprised face. Love kittens and puppies.

  6. Awwww what a cutiet :)I love her coloring and fluffiness!
    It's a great idea to make lists each month for what you want to work on and you did really well in Dec!

  7. Isn't she gorgeous. I'm a list maker from way back. Doesn't always mean it gets done, but it's a good way to get some focus. Cheers
