Quilt tops I want to finish in the year... 2010

Picture 1 is me holding the retreat project from 2007. Peg Dunayer taught this class. She's great! Picture 2 is an applique butterfly quilt I stared maybe 3 years ago or more. It's all put together now, but needs a border and quilted. Picture 3 is the mystery from Retreat 08. I love the fall colors. I put a temporary backing on it to hang it in the museum for our guild show, but it's time to take it off and quilt it for real. Picture 4 is the Puzzler that we did at Sassy Seamers Bee in 2007, I think. Picture 5 is Gingerbread Joy that we started the beginning of 2008 and I finished it in December, 09. Joy comes in the Morning!

Plus, I have a Rooster Quilt that is ready to quilt, a sampler that just needs a block or two and will be ready to put together and quilt, and a bunch of crazy quilt blocks that I want to put together, but I haven't figure out the layout for it yet (can someone say backburner?).

Come on, now. I got a quilting machine 8 months ago and I've still got all of these and some charity quilts to get quilted. That's my goal for this year... besides all the projects I'll start! I still have a mystery from a class Jan taught to finish... barely started it. And of course that will go on my ... gotta get it quilted list, too. Plus... we're starting a new BOM in Sassy Seamers that I'm anxious to work on. 2010 is going to be SEW busy!

Been Too Long...

Since last post....

Finished up my UFO project, "Joy Comes in the Morning", the Gingerbread Joy pattern and other quilting and sewing projects.

Worked with Christy for our church craft sale doing lots of machine embroidery designs to display with Christy's beautiful jewelry creations.

Helped Erin with AWANA projects, like her Thanksgiving costume. She was a pecan pie, including whipped cream on top!
Spent as much time as possible with Betsy Bear... wonderful!

Finished up homeschool co-op with Drama and Cake Decorating for Erin. Lots of fun!

Had wonderful planned visit from my brother, Charlie, and surprise visit at the same time from brother, Jim and Gail. It was an awesome visit and made me so happy!

Worked with our dear friends, Paul and Debbie, with the Love and Respect marriage class. We love working with them and enjoy the time with all the couples.

Lots of Christmas activities and enjoying family times.

Homeschooling, cooking, cleaning, crafting, enjoying my life.
