Do you reflect on each year as it comes to a close? The start of a new year can bring on big ambitions. But by December, it often feels like 365 days wasn’t enough! Don’t fret—there’s always next year. Until then, tell us about a 2013 goal you’re still working on:

What one project did you want to complete in 2013 but haven’t yet—and is there still time to finish it?

Post your answer in the comments before noon (PST) on Monday, December 16, for your chance to win. The winning answer will be posted on Wednesday, December 18, along with the next question.

Last week’s Quirky Question was, “What one word best sums up your quilting life in 2013?” Here’s the winning comment, from Kathy:

“Successful! My goal was to finish 18 UFOs and I completed 17 of those. YEAH! I also completed 61 other projects that were new this year (they had not been started previous to January 2013). All gifts were handmade for baby births, birthday gifts for friends and Christmas! Focusing on one project at a time was the key. Not stopping in the middle was also crucial to finishing what I started. Success! That is my word!”

Congratulations, Kathy—look for an email about your free eBook.
