Looking forward

I see lots of people posting about resolutions for the new year. I have been thinking a lot about mine. So I want to make a list of things I really want to achieve.
Free motion quilting - I have the Leah Day craftsy class I have no excuse, get going
Silk quilt - this was started very successfully, interrupted for treatment but no excuses now, knuckle under.
Farmers wife - sadly neglected, a few false starts, lets get this baby moving again.
A few reminders of silk quilt & favourite farmers wife blocks to get me going.

I know, it's not Hogmanay yet but I have been doing a lot of thinking about where I want to how with my quilting and the arrival of the last instalment of the Hello Sun block of the month reminded me of this.
I have so loved this BOM, every month it has literally added a bit of sunshine to my life, now my blocks are not perfect some are a bit *rustic* :-) but it's not something I normally do, has pushed my boundaries a bit and taught me a fair bit.
So next year, no indiscriminate signing up to any BOM which fleets past me but more targeted signing up for things which will challenge me and which I will actually enjoy!
Here are some of my blocks.
