I think I accomplished a lot in 2013. Now it is time to think about my priorities for 2014. 

My top priority for 2014 is going to be machine quilting all of the tops that have accumulated in my sewing room. As my followers know, I received an APQS Lucey quilting machine in August. I have been practicing and it is now time to put a real quilt on the machine.

I will also be working on several BOM projects:
2013 Designer Mystery BOM
Visa Versa BOM project
Park Bench BOM (Fat Quarter Shop)

I have also preordered a kit from Fig Tree Co. (The pear quilt)

That is how my year is looking right now. I will try not to be distracted by squirrels or bright shiny objects that will get me off track. However, as I have experienced in the past, some of those projects are not only fun, but also quite rewarding. I will try to stay on track. 

Thanks for stopping by.
