    Well, I haven't been quilting for very long, so I guess I should figure out one of these "good systems" before I get too many scraps. Currently they all fit in two big plastic tubs....some are scraps and some are yardage from my clothing sewing days. Next time I get on an organizing spree I will have to check out Bonnie's method.

    Right now I am trying hard to finish my started UFOs...at least one quilt a month. Since May I have been able to stick to that...tomorrow I should have the 3rd quilt for August finished! Just a little border to quilt and then the binding. Next month I have one more lap-quilt close to being finished and then I am going to focus on PC blocks!! YAY!!!

    Wow you are doing great Carrie on all your UFO's. I have around four that need "doing". I have got one finished except for the border, and started another QAYG - Star blocks from last year's BOM. I see why Jan does her PC blocks this way, it is so easy to quilt just one little square! I have been following Jenniky's QAYG challenge, it is very informative!

    JeanieG we are making Jamestown Landing, it is in Bonnie's new book String Fling but was in an Australian magazine about 12 months ago. I put it on the definitely wanna make list and thought it would be a great project to take to retreat. It is a 2 1/2 day retreat so hope to get some serious sewing done. I plan on having everything cut beforehand.

    I have also been saving all my little bits for her Wild and Goosey block which is appearing in Quiltmaker shortly, or so she said on her blog. That was another one that just took my fancy..

Thought we needed a bit of laughter; its better than crying over the mess....or is that 'spilled cream' we laughed instead of cried over on the farm.
    QNS what the weather likewe are heading into our wet season. Up here in the Tropics we only have two seasons the dry and the wet, and it would be great to be away from floods and cyclones. I love a challenge, I'm sending good vibes your way. I know you can do it..

    I was counting the quilts I have started while drifting off to sleep last night and if I don't start anything else MAYBE I can finish them by the end of the year. I'm doing two small quilts as QAYG and just need to add the borders. Another small quilt is being quilted right now. I too like able to quilt individual blocks so I think finishing the other full sized quilts should go better.

    Jeanie, thanks for the link. I had started strips for a quilt calling for 1 3/4 inch strips but I think I have enough done to work on the...it isn't in my UFO count...and have a few other sizes started now. I just need to get the boxes to keep them separated in. I still don't keep the crumbs. There is a lady that works with mentally challenged people to use them for dog beds for a local shelter. She gives these people a reason to get out of bed once a week so I don't feel bad about that.

    What an accomplishment, Carrie! That has to feel good.

    QNSue...I'll fly with you anytime! Your results speak for themselves. My sewing room is very small so ever so often, I have to straighten up so I can find a few more corners to store things in. I'm not in Mirabelle's "neat" league at all although I admire her ability to keep things looking good and getting a lot done at the same time. I could learn from her.

    Thanks everyone for the 'neat' words. Got four more clear vue tubs today, so I can see what is in each one. Need to pick up more next week 'cause we unloaded the travel trailer, a guy wanted to buy one, but he did not want to pay what it was worth & found another bargain elsewhere which was fine with me. I was using it as a storage shed, now must organize things a bit better. Don't want to keep the old magazines any more; but find a way to store photographs, particularly senior high pictures of each of our children. Downsizing is never easy, From over 2100 square feet down to 1724 square feet...in 2005, and I am still moving slow and slower on it. Dh does not want to re-winterize it, and that stops me from ever using the trailer...hoping that the visit from four year old gs & dd will change his mind.

    Got four more blocks done for PC; going to design and go onward, so I can post them each week at the right time. I was privately PM Honchey, she wanted scraps any size of Black on Black. Only she could hit the one missing link in all my fabric collection and scraps. If you have some that you could spare, PM Honchey.

    Rain is coming 'in' from the hurricane....we hope it does not go around us...we need the rain.

    I have her new "String Fling" Book too. There are some beautiful quilts in it! It seemed so strange to see Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll and Orca Bay in it, as I had already made those quilts. I loved Jamestown Landing and am drawn to Zuckerwatte (Cotton Candy).

    JeanieG I made Roll Roll Cotton Boll also, although I didn't put the string blocks in. It still turned out a good size quilt and my DD loved it.

    I have made several of Bonnie's quilts from her free pattern section, they make great charity quilts and use up lots of little bits.
