Happy New Year! The year of the diminishing UFOs.

Well,  the holidays have come and gone.... it's back to work.... and I still need to de-decorate my house.  With the move and wanting to entertain several small groups of friends and family, we had guests for dinner this last Sunday,  I decided to keep my trees and decorations out until this next weekend.   Only a couple more nights of enjoying the lights on the trees.  I'm off to buy some more plastic totes tomorrow to put it all away.   (My old cardboard boxes won't do out in the shop, as they are not mouse proof).  my plan for anything that can make nesting material, is to put in a tote, and seal shut with tape.  In all the years we've been married, I've always had inside storage for these things..... so if anyone has any better ideas for me,  please let me know.....

I have done a little sewing while on my break..... I'll have to get pics uploaded and posted of you all.  Now, if I can just get these projects finished!

I'm on  a mission to finish up UFO's.... and to work on using up some of this stash of fabric I just relocated.  Charity quilt projects are on my horizon.....   While it can be convenient to have a lot of fabric on hand, especially since I love scrappy quilts,  it can also be overwhelming.... I just made a checkerboard sashing for a quilt top.... cut, and cut, and cut...... still have a stack of those same fabrics...... I think it multiplied like bunnies.....

  1. Would like to see your checkerboard sashing. That is something I have yet to try.
