Massive Update

I just italicized a few things in the sidebar since they are what I consider complete.
Here is the more info on them.
5. Finish the bow-tie quilts for the girls. - This is TWO quilts of 6" finished blocks, 9x11 field.
Both DONE as of September.
6. Finish the matching bow-tie doll quilts. - This is TWO quilts of 6" finished blocks, 4x6 field.
Both DONE as of July
16. Make my RWB Road Quilt. I have a mass of Red, White & Blue fabrics from a single coordinating line that are destined for a Yellow Brick Road Quilt. I bought them knowing that was there purpose. They are still a "PIG" status UFO.
Partially finished - top and back are done, need to sandwich and quilt, then bind.
21. Get my OWN 100 list journal going. Maybe even a blog for it... all end up with all these linked but different blogs. LOL
Started the journal and published the linked blog, now I need to get some of the lists posted on the blog.
33. Crochet some Socks.
I have made a pair for each of the kids, pair for Mom & Mom's boss. Started on Hubby's pair and 3/4 completed one sock for me. I also amassed a large number of skeins to do more.
34. Get my passport.
Got the ENHANCED ID instead. Valid for land and sea crossing.
41. Make a list of links on the sidebar of this blog.
DONE - see sidebar
44. Try 10 new main dinner recipes.
Have tried a few, but not 10 yet.
47. Get a new sewing machine.
Has been purchased, need to get it set up and in use now.
48. Join: NaBloPoMo - and DO IT!! - at least once.

52. Complete at least 10 of my 100 lists.
They were written, I need to get them posted.
56. Join TBR Challenge.
See post below, I have COMPLETED THE 12 books for the year.
57. Go to the Denver Zoo.
We went on the last free day before we moved out of Colorado. It was a bit cool that day, but I left A2007 with Daddy, and took A2002 and her friend. We had a BLAST!
69. Replace the broken plate in the set & get flat bowls to complete the set.
We now have a full set of 12 on all the plates and bowls.
74. Take re-useable bags to the grocery store more often than not. (I'll count them as I go to the store.)
We take them ALL the time now. It also does not hurt that we get 5 cents back per bag that we use on our groceries.

Have finished almost all of them.
