I know!  I’m a blog slug!  Haven’t posted in a while!  But I have been busy!!

Our local quilt guild has a new activity this year- “The UFO Challenge”.  Our guild year runs from September through June, just like the school year.  This challenge goes like this- you make a list of specific UFO’s you plan to complete this year between September and June.  When you turn in your list, you hand in $1.00 for each UFO on the list, and everyone’s money goes into a pot.  Each month, at the guild meeting, you show completed projects as you finish them, and they are checked off your list.  At the end-of-year meeting in June, you get your name in the pot as many times as UFO’s you completed.  First name pulled gets half the pot.  Second and third names pulled get 1/4 of the pot each.

Four of my 15 UFO’s are Christmas quilts and I’ve completed two this month, so far!

  3. I always have a little smile when I see you have a new post. I know it is going to be something good. This is a cute little quilt. I love any quilt with trees. But I love stockings too and this print is very cute. Good job on the finish. Your little doggie in the window is just too precious!
