    I'm finishing up Christmas stockings, before that Thanksgiving turkeys from a MSQC tutorial they are cute and fun but I am dying to just begin a good old quilt. I've got lots of kits and precuts waiting while I am getting the "have to's" done.

    I started an Irish Chain baby blanket, but Mr. seam ripper and I are spending a lot of time together - silly me did not get the measurement right on one strip of "A" set. Found it when I tried to put the second row on. !!!grrrr
    So much to do so I'm just needling around!

    I am working on figuring out what I want to do next. I have all my Christmas quilts done and can't decide which project I want to do. So, I've been reading mysteries every day or cleaning or cooking or playing with my dogs or spending time with my husband. I go in my sewing room and try to pick out one project, but can't decide, so I turn off the light and come out and continue with what I was doing. I have too many projects to do that I am overwhelmed. I just stuffed 2 boxes with quilt kits to give to a gal to help me not be so overwhelmed by all my quilt kits and I'm still overwhelmed. I have another gal that needs some kits, so I'm going to have a "giveaway" on my blog soon to get my room under control even more. And I won a giveaway today! I guess what goes around, comes around!!!!

    I am doing the handquilting on a freestyle quilt. I am working on this quilt for about 4 month now, started with appliques. It is a x-mas gift and I think, I need to quilt the borders with the sewing machine cause I'm running out of time.

    I am working on a crumb quilt, king sized. Loving it and planning to do another someday-I already have enough blocks...I love using up the crumbs-after that I will graduate to another pieced something that I already have cutout. I LOVE cutting and have at least a dozen projects cut and ready to go for the winter, it's just pick one.

Controlled scrappy isn't a strong enough term!!! Never realized I had such control issues when it comes to fabric until I started this project.

    Your turn, we want details!
    I love that pattern! I made one for a friend last year.

    I'm working on a quilt for friends now. It just need quilting.

    I just finished hand quilting my round robin project that I received in late August. So I have to finish quilting and binding my garden maze and my clifford quilts. Then I found some tops that I started for a group that I want to finish before the new year (mickey/snowball/fish/floating star/yellow brick road). Lucky me only has to do the tops for those as well as the sb/fish/fs are almost finish-almost to the part where you join the block. And of course the ybr doesn't take much time at all and it's already cut out and I have completed the first step. Mickey is a 9p and I have the strip sets ready to cut into rows. I think I will be doing some heavy duty sewing this week so I can at least get the mickey/snowball/cliffords done. Then next week the maze/floating star or ybr done and finish the rest the following week. Well I have a plan now to get it done. I don't usual start this many project at one time without finishing them but for some reason I put these down and then the next time started something different. I got to get these done or I will end up with all these UFO's and my charity groups will have nothing to finish and give out. Time to stop typing and start sewing.

    I just finished a doll quilt that will be a big sister gift for my friend's granddaughter. I'm making a quilt for the baby too. And a table runner that's almost finished. And some pillow covers. And a lot of potholders. And I just got a wall hanging kit on sale, so I guess I'll be starting on that soon. Too many things going on at once!

    MimiBug123, I'm so sorry for your injuries. I broke my ankle in July and if it helps you to know, it is doing very well now. The ankle was bad enough but I could still sew. Once your wrist mends, sewing will probably be good therapy.
    Take care and feel better soon!

    I'm finishing my my third (and LAST) double wedding ring quilt. It's in burgandy and maroons and hand appliqued, hand quilted and hand binded. Needless to say, these are a great deal of work and I think I've burnt out on them.

    My next project is a baby quilt for my sister. She's due at the end of January so I should have just enough time to finish it! Here's hoping she doesn't go into labor early!
