Weds sew day

Had a great day sewing on Weds with some friends. We try to sew together every 3rd Weds. We do a potluck lunch this week I put some soup in crock pot.  I finished up making the last of four purses to sell in Catherine's Gallery in Sullivan, and put borders on a top that had been sitting from a class 3 years ago.  I also helped 2 friends with their projects, one is making a scrap quilt in vertical rows with black in between so helped her lay out the rows to sew together on the design wall and helped other friend finish a top to make into a shower curtain. All in all a very productive day for all of us. 
This is the quilt I put borders on.

Christmas is finally over at our house

Well this isn't quilty, but finally got the last of the outdoor Christmas decorations taken down and put away. The lights have been turned off since News Years Day  but too cold to take them down. It was a little chilly outside today with the wind, but not bad temps.  They are predicting some snow maybe tomorrow  so glad we got this done today.   Now back to quilting.

starting the new year with goals

Ok  I haven't been blogging this last year. So 2015 will be the year of blogging for me.  I will try to keep updated on what I am working on . Also 2015 is the year of finishing UFO's, my quilt group has decided to help each other keep on track with our finished. Each of us have made a list of 12 UFO's that we want to finish this year and each month when we meet we need to bring an item that we have finished or at least a progress report.  Hope this accountability will help us keep on track.  I am also going on a no buy campaign this year too.  We will see how this all works out.
