  • almost finish my second ever bag.
  • fall in love with linen.
  • finally finish the 'Fussy Fairytales' Quilt.
  • Give the QCA Bee#1 Scrappy Log Cabin quilt to a deserved mum.
  • Start hosting my own linky called 'Sunday Stash' where folks can exhibit their latest stash additions.
  • Learn how to make my own 'button'.
  • Hit 100 followers - and have a small give-away to say thank you.
