First Week of the New Year

Okay. Let's get this show on the road.

First finish of the New Year.

This is the Block of the Month we will be doing out at Gee Gee's Quilting.

Now for Progress report (starting on Sunday).

Sunday-came  down to the sewing room and started cleaning. I have a closet under the staircase that really needed to be cleaned out. I have just been shoving stuff in there all year. I basically want to store mostly my battings in there. It took me half a day, but it is cleaned out of everything else. All I have in there now is batting, stuffing and pillow forms. Yeah. I also spent some time folding the fabric that I cleaned out of the way going into the closet (and in the closet). then I finished loading one of my quilts on the long arm.

Monday-out at Gee Gee's all day for the Block of the Month classes and an Open Sew class.

Tuesday-back down folding MORE fabric.

Wednesday-down again cleaning and folding fabric. Tried to get started on the Skull quilt but the glow in the dark thread I got is not working. When I wound some bobbins I noticed that I could feel some slubs.

Thursday-went looking for more glow in the dark thread. I won't work either. Then I had to go through my quilts with DH so he could pick one to give to the Secretary at the Union Hall. She's such a sweetie. Oh and he took me out to lunch.

Friday-went to the Hall with DH to give her the quilt.

Saturday-back at cleaning. I cleaned  up the shelving that holds my machines. There was a really big mess in front of it and not a clear space on it. Then I cut out a couple of quilts and tried to decide what I'm going to pack for a retreat at the end of the month.

So, I really didn't get a lot of sewing done, but at least I can walk around to sewing room again.

Another thing. I was talking with my BFF Vickie and we have decided to challenge each other with getting some stuff done. We are going to try to complete one thing a month out of our UFO's. Here is my list so far (we need 12).
1. Snowflake Hexies
2.  Vintage Tin Embroidery
3.  Wild Child quilt
4.  Black Embroidered Cats from Lorelei
5.  Mini's for Mini of the Month Club (3)
6.  2015 Alternate BOM from Gee Gee's
7.  Black/pink Quilt for a Cure Quilt

That's all I have so far. I know there's still a lot of UFO's hiding. I just need to pick the one's that are do-able.

Til later,
Hugs & Stitches,
