    Once You Catch Your Breath After Christmas ... What's Your Next Project?

    Only a few days to go and I have FOUR quilts to finish! Eeeeeek!

    So once the Christmas (or Channukah) quilting frenzy is over and done with and you've had a chance to catch your breath, what is on your agenda?

    I got an early Christmas present from my husband - three gorgeous Amish cross stitch machine embroidery sets that I've had my eye on for months. I really love them because they remind me of the hand cross stitch designs I did as a girl. Not sure what fabric to use - maybe muslin? What do you think?

    Here are the designs:

    Krystyna, those embroidery patterns are just wonderful. I hope you'll share pictures when get some of them stitched out.
    For myself...UFO's! I have four Christmas quilts that I got pieced and partially quilted. I'll have to finish them for next year for the grand kids. I was a little too ambitious a little too late. I have several other quilt tops that need to be quilted and bound so I'm planning to get those done and out of the way. I have three must make quilts coming up this year also. Then I'm in process of making quilts for all of my five sisters and have three more of those to get done. I won't run out of work anytime soon. I also took on the job of making quilt samples for my friend's quilt shop down in the city. She opens the second week of January. It should be a fun year!

    Merry Christmas,

    Rose, aren't they wonderful? Sounds like you'll be busy!
    I forgot to mention that my future DIL has just finished her first quilt so I'm sure we'll be busy together!

    My sister has sent me a kit for a lovely log cabin quilt, I think it is called "Sliced Bread." There is also a crib-size quilt awaiting quilting, and a CW in progress.

    I have to finish FMQ-ing a baby quilt for my nephew and then finish a batik quilt I started last January (eek!). After that, I am doing an Asian Scrappy Road (from Quilters World magazine) for our master bedroom. Should keep me busy for a long, long while - I am sew slow!!!!

    Clean up the sewing room, do a couple of donation kid's quilts and get started on my Dear Jane quilt. All this while running around the country with hubby. He wants to go south for a few weeks.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!
