I have decided to join the Charming Girls club over on Kelly's site for this year--I find it does help me to get some "goals" in finishing my projects----so here is my "TO DO" List for January--
1.Make the next two blocks to the Patch Abilities block so I can hang them on the cute rack and enjoy them!!!
2.Sew and Hand quilt this month's Schnibbles pattern--Madeline!!!!
3.And baste and hand quilt "Christmas Wishes" bom of the month from last year!!!
NOW we know I have alot more I could and should put on this list--but I do have some other projects I would like to do this month--like --- are you really going to make me say "THAT" word-----housecleaning!!!!! and I want to play with my new mixer--so there will be some baking---hopefully---
Plus I am adding up my "Unfinished" projects---I did count my quilt tops today--- total==16==Now these are tops that are all put together---they need batting, backing, basting and hand quilting---OUCH---they run in size from a large wall hanging to twin size for the bed--and some have been waiting their turn for a couple---ok--a few years now---but I am hoping to get a good start on them this year----HEY--stop laughing at me----I just might "surprise" you ( and it would be a surprise to me too!!!) Now I have lots more projects that are in different stages of completion--I have yet to count them------?????????????
So Charming gals here I COME---!!!!!!
And here is some pictures of other things I have made in the past--
I used to do alot of counted cross stitch--BEFORE-- the quilting "bug" hit---have only done a couple small things since!!!
This next one took 3-4 years of working at it off-on to complete--but I am so glad I kept picking it up---
Can you tell I like snowmen this time of year?????
I WAS SPEECHLESS IN WAL MART TODAY----
I was shopping in the Christmas clearance aisles and I seen this man picking up 5-6 boxes of the regular glass ornaments--and I said to him--"ah--getting ready for next year ??" He looked at me with a smug smile and said--"NO--we take these and hang them on a rope and hang them up high so they move back and forth and then we shot them with bow and arrows!!!!"----Wished you had been there to see my face and that of another customer--you could of knocked us over with--
feather!!!!!! Later after I got home I realized that "these" men are probably doing this out in the back field or woods--and these ornaments are "SHARP' edgy pieces when they break--do you think they clean this mess up----NO NO NO---that means the poor little animals running around stand a good chance of getting cut feet---How mean--just so 'big boys" can play????
SORRY---this just did not make me a happy camper---thanks for listening!!
OH I also got some groceries---so I can eat now and keep up my energy for quilting -- that's good thing--right????
And talking about Wal-mart---have you noticed that nearly every food aisle now has "Great value" labels on the food---are they only going to carry their own food products in the future---hope not---that's a scary thought?????
Take care---keep stitching---Hugs, Di&co.
