    It is Christmas Eve and all across the board/ Some of us are busy finishing up those last minute quilts, while others are relaxing and enjoying themselves. Hope all of you have a lovely Merry Christmas.

    Paperpieceme, looking forward to your wild print, and your board name is intriguing, so looking forward to the pattern you choose too!

    I have found the print I want to send, I was online and I've ordered some of it!

    Yeah. I will be picking mine out real soon. I know exactly what material I want to use. Just got to pick a pattern.
    Remember no paper piecing as not everyone is that skilled.

    Good to know. I am learning how to do paper piecing and so this year I am joining the Carol Doak's 50 Fabulous star group. We will see if I make it past the first star. LOL.

    hey michiganders, I am just across the lake. sending some cold weather your way tomorrow. it was 0 degrees when i stopped off at the quilt shoppe today, beautiful sunny day for a drive though.

    urgodschild2, i am doing that block a week with the 50 paper pieced stars too, we are supposed to post one next week, so i need to get myself in gear.

    when i was at the shop today, i found some fabric i liked better not quite so wild, but really neat. i am going to cut tomorrow while the kids are still at grandmas.

    looking forward to this swap, its my only swap right now, trying to keep it simple. i set the goal to finish up my UFOs this year. uff da, theres a lot of them.

    Paperpieceme, I haven't counted my UFOs... but I found out that when I join a swap I tend to get more sewing done than not. It seems that making a commitment to someone else works better for my sewing projects than trying to finish them alone. I become more enthused about sewing when I'm making something for someone else, and that enthusiasm spills over to some of my own projects.

    I got the fabric I ordered online for this swap in the mail. :-) I plan to make a test block later this month.

    i made a list of my UFOs while I was cleaning my room,if you count fabric that i have in my mind for a certain project its craziness, but dh told me i should only count the ones where i have cut something. that narrows it down to 11. I have a wandering heart when it comes to quilting, I finish a top and move on to the next one.

    i sew quite a bit because i sleep in my sewing room, poor dh snores so bad, when he started kicking in his sleep, i took over his office. i just dont finish a lot of quilts, but i can whip out a fancy pencil case in about an hour.

    I had 17 UFO's that were either in the making or I wanted to start. I have finished 2 and I am almost finished with two more. Yeah. The two that are almost finished are going with me to Australia. Gotta love having a time schedule to get one in gear and finish something. I go to a quilt class at my senior center and we are starting up again next week. Every month Lyn gives us a swap and we get a pattern for making a quilt with the swap blocks. So that is 5 quilts per semester. The she has a semester quilt that we get instructions every week and then to add to all that she gives us a year or 52 week quilt blocks. for the year. this year is it going to be Christmas. anyone can look at her quilts for our class and get the patterns free at lynbrown.com

    Here it is the 6th of January. I am preparing for my trip to Australia and getting to see my adorable grandkids. I look forward to Feb when we start. I hope all of you in the cold area are safe and ok. I know what it is like to get cold temps when you area is not use to that cold temps and wind chill. Stay inside and just sew.
