If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

I love your MVL, Elizabeth! The colors are great together.

Marcia--you better get a couple things started or we can't have you in the UFO'S-just  kidding, of course. 

Linda-How is migraine?  Can't imagine having that plus sinus.

Karen, I really like the recycled labels idea...except that I usually write a teaser on my labels to confuse the recipient.

Elizabeth, "Mi Vida Loca" was worth the wait to see. So clear and sparkly.

I have the quilting done on the 1st BOM from the Batik group...haven't been able to cut binding as I haven't been home before 4PM for the last three days.  This one needed to be done by January for the Storytelling Festival Brochure.

Went to the animal shelter for a conference on the malamute, Scilly.  She is doing very well training with people, and is slightly less aggressive with other dogs while wearing muzzle.  The psychologist/trainer feels that in 6 months she would behave if constantly watched and corrected; and that she is not a good match for us given that we are the shelter's last resort foster home for elderly and special needs dogs.  So we signed off on Scilly- and they wouldn't even let me say,"Goodbye."  I consoled myself by taking  two 9 yr old sisters long haired calicoes home.  They have been in the shelter since August when their person died.  They are hiding out in the bathroom, with black cat watching the door.  Maybe I better set out a second litter box.

Elizabeth - your quilt is wonderful. 

I'm with Rogue and Karen - beautifully wrapped packages under the tree - it just makes everything look so pretty and warm.  Our grandchildren have to keep looking every time they are here, and we don't have any of their presents under the tree.  They are all in a closet.  Some times when we have a very special gift for one of them, we will send them on a treasure hunt.  They just love it.

Merry Christmas to you Kris/

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year. I've been busy & haven't been on. Decided I better post before I totally forget...

Elizabeth, that is absolutely beautiful.  I love the fabrics and colors.  You did an amazing job.

Elizabeth, LOVE that quilt! The colours really make those stars pop. That must've been one fun top to put together...wish we could see her quilting. If the backing is plain, maybe you could take a closeup?

Hi Everyone,

I recently finished Mi Vida Loca, an on-line mystery by Sharon Blackmore of Prairie Mercantile Co.  It was machine quilted by Jill Josephs in an allover stars and swirls motif.  Bambi had a hard time holding it up for the photo. LOL

I am happy to report that I have just fit five full size quilts and three clothing packages into a 17 x 13 x 16 box and is ready to be picked up by post office.  There, five down and two more to go of my own.  Customer let me off hook with hers because she does not want to do the binding before Christmas.  Now that is funny and it is a small quilt.  Now to finish up baking shopping, make all the neighborhood plates we do, cards need done, clean up mess, finish the baby blanket and put in the mail with cards and gifts for grands, then get ready for the holiday with shopping that is not done yet.  Whew, life is good.  I am best under pressure.

You may have the elves if anyone needs them, my kids are going to assist with some of these last minute things I need done to make their Christmas worthwhile.

Comment by Karen Newman Brown on December 19, 2014 at 12:04pm

Sounds like all the Santa Elves are busy!!! 

I'm with Rogue, I love to see them open the presents!  I make reusable labels from Christmas fabric ironed on to felt.  I just have to make new ones for additional people or if I don't have enough for a person.  My kids have had them around since they were kids, so they look for them and are really good at giving them back each year!

Off to finish projects!
