Stitchy Resolutions

Yes, I know I'm late with this.  I just can't seem to get it together this year yet.  Maybe cause it doesn't feel like it should be a new year yet.  Maybe my life just seems to be on fast forward and I don't know how to slow it down.  Whatever the issue is, I figure it's better late than never, right?

Now I know I said I wasn't making any resolutions but stitchy ones are different.  Perhaps I should call them goals.  Okay, what ever name you want to call them by, here they are.  I definitely want to finish the hooded bath towel I've already started for Elsie.  I also have her birth sampler to stitch.  Oh and there's her Christmas stocking I told Chris and Annette I would stitch for her.  Then there's a wedding sampler for Brian and Alisha.  That didn't seem so bad until Sherrie reminded me that I never finished her tote I was knitting and planning on felting.  And there's her college graduation sampler that she's hoping I'll stitch for her.  She apparently doesn't expect me to finish the one for high school that I stitched for her.  All it needs is a teeny tiny tassel and it's done.  So here it is, my list of stitchy resolutions for 2013:

Elsie's bath towel
Elsie's birth sampler
Elsie's stocking
Brian & Alisha's wedding sampler
Sherrie's high school graduation sampler
Sherrie's college graduation sampler

Knitting projects
   Elsie's afghan
   Sherrie's felted tote

I'm hoping that I can get all these finished in order to pick up Quaker Gone Tropic again.  It's all doable, it really is!
