Til the End of the Year. ....

Time to get cracking on finishing some UFOs!

Jacquie at Tall Grass Prairie Studio is inviting/challenging all crafters to make space for "Joy in The New Year" by clearing out UFOs. That will make the New Year free-er and more creative.
I am committing myself to completing one per week, that is NINE.

So here's the one I'm working on right now:

The strip of Flying Geese and the strips of red squares have been hanging on the back of the sewingroom room divider for months and months. Suddenly I saw that they could go together to make a "double" placemat for Charlie and me. We usually sit across from each other at the diningroom table, across the width of the table. I think this can lie from his side to my side, and we will each have a placemat out of it. And spcae in the middle for salt & pepper, etc.

I am at the point of quilting it now. A great advantage of these smaller items, such as the doll quilts, is that I can quilt them myself on my own machine.

AND in four more posts I'll be at #300, so a little give-away [one of the finished UFO's, of course] is being planned. It will go to one of my "followers" on Blogger. Sign up if you want a chance!

Sara, I've been reading your blog for over a year now, and just didn't realize I hadn't signed up as a follower. Thanks for the "jog" to my memory!

Hi Sara, I'm leaving my message here, like this, as your email to me is set as a "no-reply", so obviously I can't reach you that way...LOL.
I see by your post that you are joining Jackie Joy in the New Year challenge. However, you sent an email to me, and what we are doing is New Years Eve UFO Challenge at Pieces from my scrapbag. I'll be happy to add you to our list, but need to know if it's ours or Jackies that you are joining??? Or maybe both....LOL. You could get twice as many done that way...*VBS* Let me know, ok? Hugs, Finn
