Let's get busy - January

I am an AVID listmaker -- one of my basic life strategies is that once I write something down, I don't need to hold onto it in my head anymore.  (Which actually only means that I keep flittering onward to NEW stuff that's also not going to be stored in my brain either.)  (And then there's the part about remembering where my lists are, and remembering to read them.)

OK, so Judy has organized a Get It Done activity for 2013 that has my name written all over it:  "Write a list of things you might do."  Yes, I'm in.

And I'm already linked up to Barbara's NewFO 2013:  "Write a list of things you'd like to start but not necessarily finish."  Ok, that's good.

And then there's the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013 over at Scraphappy: "Make something colorful using scraps."  Heehee, enough colorful scraps around here to sink a boat.

And the 30sFabricQuilting yahoo group I belong to will be featuring some swaps and a mystery project.  I'm in for two swaps and the mystery right now.  We'd love some new members over there if you like 30s repros :)

And the Dare to Dresden bloghop I'm participating in later in the month:  "Sew a dresden plate something and do a blog post about it."

And then also **a few** of my own projects and inspirations.

And ... and ... and ...  that's probably enough for this list I think :)

(AND ... these are only the quilty things I hope to accomplish in January -- there are others in other areas of my attention.)
