    I've started a scrappy Night and Day by Eleanor Burns (no, directions for scrappy are not in the book so I had to figure them out but will share if you PM me...) and I want to get the top finished by the end of the year. All batiks, about 1/2 of the strips are done and still need to buy more for the other 1/2 of the quilt.....

    I have a giant (actually two pieced) wilderness quilt, Rustle Russell (story quilt), Family Challenge quilt, McKenna Ryan's KaBloom, and Toni Whitney's Flo Flo. With a couple of weeks off in January, I want them ready for 8 to 10 hours per day of satin stitching. It's all in the preparation!!

    I want to finish the one that is my avatar here. Yes, I love it, but it is like cooking a large meal. by the time it gets on the table you are sick of it...Still have some quilting and the binding to do.
    I did a lot of hand quilting on the central portion and did large leafy vines on the outer sections, with the same color thread as fabric. Now I wish I had reversed the thread, but no way will I redo all of it. It is a bit too plain for me now. I tend to go simple but maybe I need to be more bold in my ideas....If anyone has suggestions as to how to punch it up some, I am all ears!
    My DS wants a new quilt "before the cold weather" so I am working on that.

    (sigh)...to finally have a big enough block of free time to clean out the spare bedroom downstairs for my own quilting room...but with all of the dr. appts. for my Mom and my husband, it's going to be a while...Naomi
    Nope...and that's the really frustrating part...I live in another city 15 miles from my Mom...my brother lives with her...he 'occasionally' has a license but doesn't have a car, my younger sister lives less than a mile from Mom but it seems she is always working, next door to her is my older sister who doesn't drive at all(thank goodness)...I have to get groceries for 3 households, plus the dr. appts for everyone...seems like I start to clean the room and someone has another "emergency"...I am 61, and this isn't the "Life" I ordered...lol...Naomi
    Bless you, Naomi, you are a wonderful caregiver. I sure do wish some of us lived close enough to help you.

    I'd just love to get enough time to finish the one I've been working a year on. I'm doing the Lily Rosenberry quilt, and I'm so sick of berries, I could die. I don't want to ever do a berry again. I'm appliquing the borders now, but I made the mistake of putting the blocks together when I was sick because I have so little time, and they are not right, so I didn't save myself any time. Maybe someday . . . . .

    I have purchased at least 10 books with many quilts in them which I really really want to make, crazy I know but I love the planning and dreaming stage so much that I collect ahead so as never to be in danger of not having the right pattern for that fabric I dream of making into just the right quilt :o) I have several in mind right now the strip pieced basket quilt in one of Edyta Sitar's books, a wonderful tree and owl quilt from Whimsicals, and a fun scrap quilt to use up some of my mounting stash :o)

    I just cut all the strips for a planned scrappy Irish chain type quilt for my grandson and his girl friend who are getting married in December. I will hand quilt it and that's about all for the rest of this year. Next year, I really really want to make a bargello!

    I would like to finish the quilt for my bed. I have everything but the batting. The top and binding are ready to go and the backing is waiting to be washed, pressed, and sewn.

    The one I have designed for my antique Jenny Lind spool bed. I am waiting for the new mattress and box springs to arrive to get the exact measurements. I am having them custom made for the bed as it is slightly smaller than a standard double bed, being more than 100 years old!

    I want to finish the queen top I've been working on! I also want to quilt another I have finished and want to put fleece on the back! I wanted to quilt that this summer, but then the AC broke, and I was not going to do that in the heat!!!

    A red-and-white queen-sized quilt alternating log cabin blocks with the Massachusetts Star block. I finally have all the fabrics and created a 12" finished log cabin block pattern to match the 12" finished stars ... but I need to knock off 5 holiday lap quilts, a 16-patch Civil War repro lap quilt for my husband, three 42x42 quilt-as-you-go quilts for the grandkids, and put binding on two more lap quilts for my granddaughters ... and make a Raggedy Ann doll for my niece.

    Believe it or not, I am on schedule, with plenty of "Life Will Happen" grace periods therein. Wish me luck, guys!

    Hows about last years Christmas gifts? I put the tips in a box and gave them, because I ran It of time when my machines went last year. Still have one more to quilt and bind.

    Then there's the 6 tops waiting for quilting. And one is for a wedding on Halloween that's not finished yet.

    I just want to finish the monster that I've created. My dh and I got brain-storming for OUR quilt (I've never kept any of the 50 or so I've made) and then we began it. He doesn't quilt, only helps me when I'm in doubt or need muscle (I have bad arthritis). Well, the cute little simple thing has grown like topsy and become huge and complicated, but really kind of a pretty thing. If I can get this done w/o any new ideas intruding I'll be happy... and so will he.

    I have a D9P for my mom for Christmas that needs to be finished. Have started piecing it. Also, one of my quilt friends has been diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer that has metastasized to a bone in her spine. I've bought and washed the fabric. That is going to be Bali Love Song lap-sized quilt.

    I want to make a summer quilt from batiks using Marie Anderson's Mozaic pattern. However, I have a lap robe for my hubby, a wall hanging and various items for a craft fair next month to do first. Maybe by next year?

    Do they happen to have a 'dial a ride' type of service for the elderly? Might check into this. Your sister could ride along as an escort. You need time off from this craziness!
