relaxing robin non progress LOL



Yes I know Phoebe......I have not even sewn a little 9 patch on this .......and I so love this border
so many projects........all with a timeline




and this fun one is starting out nicely
the biggest challenge on this one will be the ends
will I have to cut off parts?
add pieces to make it fit?
will they go all wonky on me?


I know that Lynne of never too hot to stitch 
is playing along with a UFO of hers

check out how hers is coming along.............
you playing with us?????
show us your progress!
we wanna see!










thankful for UFOs


I am thankful for UFO projects



that I can pick up and sew on here and there


in the cold winter months


and I sure have been blessed. I have TONS of UFOs

Christmas for me


I need to find these blocks


and see why they stalled



I love them.....they are so Christmassy


if I remember right a friend and I were making
these to make ourselves a Christmas lap quilt


we would alternate picking out the pattern and sharing with the other one
and using similar stash to make them
LOVE LOVE LOVE this one. wish I had more of these fabrics
I think I only had a fat quarter or pieces of some


but I need to find these
make them all the same size
and then make them into a flimsy
I GOTTA!

thankful for the changing seasons


I am thankful for the changing seasons
even though I do not want to see this scene anytime soon......


give me my tomato growing season. LOVE a fresh one
always next year
