What to do??

So many options! My sewing mojo has returned with vigour and I am excited about so many projects. I have so much I want to do this year and here are the three I am starting/ contemplating at the moment.
A couple of years ago I got a copy of a magazine called Country Favourites. No 2 to be exact and immediately thought a quilt in it called English Tea Garden would be great for my mum. I've been collecting fabric ever since.

So yesterday I started cutting - there is alot of cutting!

For Christmas Leigh got me this  kit.

I've never attempted anything like this before and I am excited! It came from a patchwork shop in Tuncurry called Just Patchwork. I had to unpack it all and take a look!

Now I'm even more scared! The pattern is huge! If you look over in the top right part of the pattern, you will see a 1cm2. Gives you an idea of how big it is. I've made a list of the extras I need to buy for this and will hopefully be able to get them sometime this week.

The third thing on my want-to-start-now list is a strip twist quilt using this jelly roll I got awhile ago.

So hopefully this is the start of a busy and productive year! Wish me luck!
