    I am about half done with cutting my squares. I spent most of the day going through totes of scraps, sorting, cutting, and organizing pieces into totes for strips and crumbs. Most of my scraps came from my aunts and mother. Most of the fabrics are 60s, 70s and 80s fabrics. My goal is to get all of those scraps used up. There were lots of garment UFOs, So it is obvious that Quilters are not the only ones who have UFOs.

    I can't stand not be involved even though #3 isn't finished. I will skip the black, red and white and go scrappy. Just to save time, I will check out some charm packs I don't care for, then start on the scraps. I have no trouble cutting yardage if I need to, though I rarely cut into a fat quarter unless I'm going to use a lot of it.

    I have a baby quilt with a close deadline - I just found out today the shower is the 13th in another part of the country, so I want in it the mail by the 9th. Sewing machines, here I come. Can I take the tree down in the middle of January? I can't skip GS's basketball games and some are road trips.

    I've seen enough holiday food. I think I'll bring some V8 juice with add ins for my first offering. Oh, and orange mimosas for tomorrow's brunch.

    We cut enough pieces out of charms for 3 of the smaller scrappy mystery quilts & I still have a ton left! I'll figure something out for those one day!

    cat on a mac - yes, wait until Saturday to commit to your A and B. When you see what is happening then, you will know what to use.

    Irish, good choice! You won't be sorry to do this one, it will be a fun project.

    Cindy, I know what you mean, there really is no such thing as a stash buster unless you are trying to cover a football field. You sew and sew and sew out of the scraps, and the amount never seems be less than it was, does it?!

    i haven't started yet. i just have like 6 more blocks to make on my 2nd DJ, then all the tri's. so i did a couple blocks today, and a couple tri's. just to get going on the tri's. i'll probably get going tues or wed on it. when do we have to have the lst clue done by? i'll re read, and see. something makes me think, we aren't even suppose to get startyed till after the lst.

    i'll answer my own question. the 2nd clue is going to be given next saturday. so need to get them done this week.

    Yes, I am in for the big one. I made the first 6 and decided since it was so much fun, I would go ahead and make 6 more. Lots of bright colors from some charm packs I have had for awhile. I was so excited to find I already had over 30 2 1/2 X 4 1/2 rectangles left over from the second mystrey ride. Yippee!!! Not much cutting on that part. Can't believe I already have these all done. Next Saturday will not come soon enough. Judy, what do you think about colors for A and B? Was thinking maybe a denim color and something else. ??? open to any suggestions.

    Thanks very much.

    I had a good time. The seats were comfy and big windows. I was traveling at night so not much to see. My ride was only 5 hours so not really long enough for a sleeper. I rode in coach. It isn't very noisy at all on the train. About the noisiest part was the people talking. The bathrooms are mansions compared to one in an airplane I like that you can just get up and wander when you want to. It's nice to be able to use your computer or charge your phone also.
