As the first quarter of 2013 wraps many quilting bloggers are assessing their progress by way of the 2013 Finish-A-Long, hosted by Leanne of She Can Quilt. There are already many links posted which I'm eager to take in over the next few days, and I'm glad I went back to read the instructions again, as this is a bit different than other link parties I've seen! 

My initial post, found here, listed essentially 7 items, and I have to say I did better than I realized as I went. I can say that I got a true completion on 4 of those (grouping the mass of pot holders as one listing), and of the remaining 3 items, 2 are underway. I hit a hiccup with quilting the pink and green baby quilt, wanting to do circles or bubbles, but not having the proper technique down. Thinking I'll need to employ a compass to mark my quilt. Worse things have happened.

Whether I'll be continuing on for the second quarter, that is still up in the air. I know that I work better with deadlines, but the self-imposed kind don't always pull muster. In the mean time I'll enjoy looking through other people's successes and upcoming goals linked over at She Can Quilt.
