January 2013 NewFO

 
I just love NewFO - a reason to start something new with no quilt. Ah, who am I kidding - I would have done it anyway.  Maybe being down with the Flu so long, waiting for the new Year to start, all those lovelies all over blogland waved under my nose - well, here it is:
 
Scrappy Trip, Self Portrait, Temecula Row-A-Long, Pam Buda's Scraps & Orphans Mini, Cross-stitch Shops mini, Album Kit(3 blocks done), Project Challenge (2 projects), StarBurst QAL, Handblock for Sarah, Country Charmer QAL, Favorite Block QAL, Darlene's Mystery QAL, Monthly Doll Quilt Swap, Quilt Doodle BOM, Words Blog Hop quilt,Rainbow Challenge, Quilter's Secret's Blog Hop
 
I know a lot of these are starts that will last for a while.  The short time ones will be replaced more than likely with something new that comes along.
 
 

 
And I am such a DUH!!  Add to all that laughable goop on the last post - this is the backing fabric on my daughter's quilt - just that little bit of selvedge - Chantilly by Chanteclaire.  AND ALL the fabric in the quilt my daughter made - came from MY STASH!!  Granted that was at least 3 maybe 4 yrs ago, I do not remember this piece - maybe I wouldn't have let her take it had I seen it - nah!  I don't know how some of you pull a fabric and remember you bought it on your vacation trip to 'this place' 10 years ago - I'm just glad I remember my name when I get up in the morning and my underwear is on the inside and not the outside, GEESHHHHH!!!
 
Sewingly Yours,

  4. Wow I'm worn out reading your list and you were ill this month. I hate to think how much you could get started on if you were at the top of your game. Love that backing fabric.

  5. Love your humor. Sorry you were sick. I think I have too much in my brain to remember everything. That is my story and I'm sticking with it. XX Kathleen

  6. That is sure a long list but I know that you will do it all. Glad to know that you don't turn into a Sylvia or a Susan or a Stephanie overnight. And panties on the right way is always a good thing.

  8. ***giggle*** You started my day off with a grin with this. I actually think the world would be a better place with more of us, like us, around. We start a lot, we have finishes, we get thru the flu and come out on top! Yep, you did great this month. As for the fabric....I would have complained and then given in and used it too!

  13. NewFO's listed on paper, need to link up too. Not sure how many will get worked on but I can DREAM. You have a good list to choose from. Even added one more to my list after seeing Temecula on yours. Such enablers we are...

  14. Hope you are much better now....I'm in the same boat there. I'm doing good to remember where that bin of a certain color FQs or scraps is, much less the name of the fabric or where I got it! Giggle!

  15. The other day I found a whole, almost finished quilt top in my basement stash area. Hows that for forgetting??? Loved you hand print at Sarah's.
