January and New Beginnings

I love January, truly.  

The days are getting longer.  The sun comes directly in to my dining room (which is where I sew).  The taking down of Christmas decor creates an instant satisfaction of de-cluttering and cleanliness.  I don't mind the cold and snow either, because its an excuse to stay home. We are currently cold, but snow-less.

So here we are in a new year AND a new decade.  A perfect opportunity to take stock of where we've been and where we're going. 

To that end, I think I'll go ahead and make one of those SUPER LISTS.  You know the kind that lists all the UFOs.  Prepare yourselves, you've been warned.

Tops that need to be quilted:
French General Irish Chain
On Ringo Lake Mystery Quilt
Small Hexie Mini Quilt
Bee Panel Wall Hanging
Charm Parade
Baby Blue and Red Charity Quilt
Large Flower Blocks Charity Quilt
Spider Web
Blue Fairy Quilt
Star Quilt
Girl Bonnie and Camille Baby Quilt
Flower Fairy Panel
4 quilts from a friend's mom

Tops to be finished (more done than not)
Gridsterbee Christmas Blocks
Handmaids Christmas Quilt
10 year Hexie quilt. (I've decided to put on borders)
Another Nut House (needs more embroidery)
EPP Orbit (applique to background?)
EPP Honeycombs (applique to background?)

Blocks to be turned into tops

I've seen at least one challenge around that is something like 20 quilts in 2020.
Just imagine if I finished all these.....

Welcome to 2020!

Your list seems pretty reasonable, does it seem overwhelming to you?
