    Will you be sewing and quilting during New Years Day? If so what will you be working on?

    I will be making some more of the Grandmother Flower Garden blocks by hand while hubby is watching football.

    Maybe. I don't know yet. It might just be DH and our son here. If they get on the computer in a game together I may do some sewing.
    Don't know what I will be working on yet. I have so many projects, I will just pick one that sounds good at that time.

    Yes, I will be quilting. My bee gets together for the day! and a retreat coming up Jan 7-9, so need to get things ready to go. Happy New Year.

    Oh absolutely I will be sewing on New Year's Day. Honestly I had not thought of what I might be sewing, but after working all week and getting a good night's rest Friday night, I definitely want to get back to non-Christmas sewing! Of course, I will have to rearrange some things in my sewing room first, so maybe I should focus on that first, then dig into sewing. I sure would love to rearrange my entire sewing room, just don't know how that would be possible since it's really tight in there.

    Not sure what I will be doing. Right now I'm cleaning out the house; I have a ton of stuff that needs to go to Good Will. I will tackle the craft room eventually.

    I just plan on catching up & finishing projects that I started this year (2010)

    I told Pat yesterday that the X-mas holiday seemed to be mostly about him. I seemed to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. The following weekend will be mostly about me. Planning to spend a lot of time in the sewing room. I have a pile of projects ready to finish. All assorted stages of "doneness"

    This is what I do also. My hubby likes for me to watch with him and I can multi task so we are both very happy. I make pu pu's for us. Get a project that doesn't reguire much effort or thought and it's a lovely day for us!

    Yes, I'll definitely be sewing. I started a new scrappy quilt this week. It's called "Cracker", and is in the Leisure Arts book titled Quick and Easy Scrap Quilts.

    I'm going shopping to my favorite LQS and buy a pass for free retreats for the entire year of 2011. It will also entitle me to double reward points on every purchase throughout the year. Then I'll be taking the kids that have stayed over the night before home, then maybe some sewing.

    I'll be out of town so no. this would be a good time to be a hand-quilter, as I will be spending many hours in the car.

    I am, I have been working on getting all my house duties done since Sunday, getting alot of extra done so that I can sew all weekend guilt free.
    I have a quilt that I started at a class before Thanksgiving that I need to get finished before the Bow Tucks class I am going too mid January.

    I hope I will be sewing. I spent the morning cleaning out my scrap drawer and cutting into little squares. Want to start the new year with a clean scrap drawer!

    Yes, yes, yes...I sew on all my days off work. I have several UFOs I am working on....and I have ventured out into my first FMQ on a lap quilt for me. It is half done. I hope to finish it. Hopefully then I will have the courage to do an "important" quilt. I have one I want to get done for a very special friend that I didn't get done in time for Christmas. I hate having to work, it limits my play time. By the time I get home from work in the evening, there is no time after supper...and I am usually to tired. So I really look forward to the weekends, and even better when there is a long weekend! Yeah! :D

    My DH has New Year's Day off, so I'll definitely be sewing while he watches the kids for a while. I'm not sure which project I'll choose, but I do plan on getting something accomplished.

    I sure hope so! I'm not into football and I should be done with my great-niece's crocheted afghan by then. I'm hoping to work on a baby quilt with a panel I bought from a quilter on this board. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!!! :lol:
