I was thinking about my goals for this year and it is pretty easy to find a word to describe what I want to do regarding sewing and other projects and the word is FINISH. I looked around to find so many things I have begun working on. I really love most of them and want to finish them. I want to complete projects and share the finished items with friends and loved ones that will enjoy them and use them.
I do have another word that I want to keep in mind in the next year. That word is AVAILABLE. I want to be available to those around me and aware of what I might be able to do to enrich some one's life. I want to ask myself this question, "Am I available to others when I might be a help or encouragement?" I don't want my "Finish" goals to be so consuming that I don't see others around me. With that said, I am going to share pictures of some of my projects that I would love to finish this quarter.

I have 3 quilts I just got back from my quilter and getting the binding on all three of these quilts in also an important part of my goal list. I will be linking with Clover & Violet for the 2016 Finish Along.
I will work to complete as many of these things as possible but focus on remaining available to those around me. I hope your new year brings many blessings.
