Not a Creature was Stirring...

...not even a Remy (at least for a few minutes).  Happy Christmas! and Happy Hanukkah!

Baking and happy Festivus!

Finally a day off! I did get some sewing time in and made two kinds of cookies.
These are molasses gingerbread cookies rolled in sugar and orange zest. Wonderfully old fashioned and not too sweet. I'm off to have a couple with some English breakfast tea.
Tomorrow starts 7 days in a row at SBux.
And of course a happy Festivus to all.

2012 UFO Challenge List

also known as 2011 UFO list recycled.

Well since 2011 was a year that kept me occupied with everything but sewing, my 2012 UFO challenge list is going to look mostly the same as last year (hey, I'll keep it in the same order too).  In 2011, I only finished 2 of my listed UFO projects, in #4 April and #2 July, so I'll add new projects for those spaces.

So here's the list for 2012

1.  Scrappy Nines
2.  Sherbet Pips
3.  Tablerunners
4.  Bonnie Hunter Double Delight
5.  Stars of Provence
6.  Clara Barton
7.  Firecracker
8.  Kaffe quilt
9.  2007 BOM
10.  Wild Rice
11.  Whittier Crossing
12.  2 Forgotten UFOs

Since 2012 is going to be the most boring and non-eventful year for me ever (and I will love every boring minute of it), I hope to make grand progress on these.


Currently, there has been very little going on besides working working working and watching Remy antics.  Although today I discovered that you can work but you cannot hide from your quilting buddies when unexpectedly, Karin and Sarah No-Blog appeared at my Starbucks this morning.  Yes, they hunted me down and among the four Starbucks within a 5-mile radius, they found me.  I LOVE them for appearing with Christmas cheer at my store.  It was good to catch up with the latest from Thimbles since I haven't been able to attend in a while.  I will get geared up for the next quarter in January though (I'll probably have one of the above UFOs to work on...)

OK time for take-out pizza dinner.  Hope to have a few most blog posts before the end of the year.

It's December??!!?? Is There Something I Should Be Doing?

It's week two of December already?!?!?? Oh my.  Let's just day I've been working a lot and kinda lost track of things I'm supposed to be doing for December.

Instead of frantically making gifts (most of which I have started and didn't finish last year *cough cough*) and instead of resorting to making dear Max work like crazy =================>

I flexed my online shopping fingers

and BOOM!

shopping done and had everything sent to my elves in Michigan for wrapping.   I love my elves in Michigan:)

Tonight I am determined to get cards addressed for mailing later this week when I have a chance to zoom by the post office.

Wish I had elves to do laundry and dishes because I gotta fit those in tonight too.

It's the most non-sleeping time of the year....

Morris & Company & Remy & Company

I just love Barbara Brackman's William Morris lines and received the latest one in layer cake form. Gorgeous winter colors. Now I need to find a project to match the fabric. Remy is napping with the little lamb toy. So precious!
