Here's what all I've committed to (and hubby, please don't wince!)...
1. Simply Solids Bee: a fun bee that my sweet friend, Erin at Sew at Home Mummy, organized with over 100 quilters! I'm in the Viridian group... Viridian means blue-green! Erin organized us all by location and named us after colors! I'm the queen bee in July, so that'll be great. Otherwise, it's one block a month.
2. Imagine do.Good Stitches: I was invited by Rachel at Stitched in Color to join do.Good stitches! It's several circles that form a charity bee. I'm in the Imagine Circle, and am excited to join this group of ladies. I'm the queen bee in June, which'll be fun! I'm signed up as a quilter so I'll actually be putting together a quilt to donate to Project Linus.
4. Farmers Wife Quilt Sampler: My mom and I decided that we are going to take on the Farmers Wife quilt sampler together this year. We decided to start in February, and do ten or so blocks a month. We're both doing the same fabric collection, although we'll probably piece the colors together different, so they'll coordinate but still be different. The fabric we've selected is one that I'm super excited about it.
It's called Color Me Retro by Jeni Baker at In Color Order. It's being manufactured by Art Gallery Fabrics and comes out in February.

I'm continuing with a couple bees from this year:
6. Simply Modern Bee: which I've made all my blocks for but will be collecting mine in February. It's a 6 month bee, so it's supposed to end in April.
Clearly, the sewing and quilting bug has bitten more pretty thoroughly!
