Taking Stock - 2018-2022

Tap...tap...tap. Is this thing on? Oh good. 

There's something about a new year that helps one take stock of where things are at and where they may go in the year ahead. It's been a long time since I've done a WIP list post (well, any post really) and I'm feeling the need for a recap of where I'm at with WIPs/UFOs/PIGs and any other acronyms for projects in the works. 

I've started a lot of projects over the last couple of years, but haven't finished many. I have a healthy pile of finished tops, which is new for me. I got a long arm machine a couple of years ago, but I'm still learning how to use it. Hopefully, I'll get more comfortable with the long arm this year and can turn those tops into finished quilts. And since the pandemic is still holding a grip over life in general, maybe I can carve out some time this year to blog again.  

For 2022 resolutions, I'm going to keep it simple -- aiming for more finishes than starts! 

So where are we at?
