Happy New Years!!
|A Quilter's Christmas Tree|
|Jan. Tut Sneak Peek|
There are some things that I would like to accomplish over the next 12 months, but of course we know that life has a way of stepping in and throw a monkey wrench into things; thus making plans fly right out the window on us.
As I was enjoying some "adult" refreshment, I pulled out some paper & pencil.
|A Little Nog Anyone?|
|Now That Has Some Kick To It!!|
My intentions will be a short list each month. I already pulled out a few UFO’s to work on this year. Now I know that this just looks
- Start two test patterns for TQPM (see button in sidebar).
- Make my Project of the Month (POM) project for Jan. (done).
- Make my POM for Feb.
- Start working on my Scrappy Challenge Quilt.
- Continue hand quilting my "Autumns Trails" wall hanging UFO.
So when I am at a point of having an empty floor hoop, I can grab one that needs to be sandwiched and baste; I can get right to it.
What I'm going to do is set up a schedule as to what I'll work on each day. This is something that me & Ms.D in Canada came up with together so that we could "sew together" as we live a good distance apart. It will look something like this:
- "Make Blocks" Mondays.
- "Make UFO Tops Happen" Tuesdays
- "Tame the Scraps" during the day and add "UFO Cross-Stitching" in the evenings for Wednesdays.
- "Any Hand Work" Thursdays
- "Freebie" Fridays
- "Scrap Clean-Up Saturday's" for 2 Rainbow Block Challenges
- "Catch Up Sunday's"
|A Gift From Ms. C in Alanson, MI|
I have also been working my Celtic Wheel cross-stitch and have gotten the Samhain wedge completed.
I recently had 2 teacup sets come to me as gifts my local friend Ms. D They have unusual patterns that just sings to my Celtic background. This one is a bagpiper with tartan ribbons. My research shows that this is a vintage set from the 1960's. It's maker's mark say it's Elizabethan China Cape Breton Island Tartan on the underside of the teacup. As you can see it is depicted with a bagpiper and tartan bows. I'm not sure how it got to Mid-Michigan, but I'm more than happy to add it to my collection. Next week I'll also see you the second one that came to visit.
