Starting something new!

I keep telling myself I need to finish up some of my UFO's that are lying around. They aren't really just lying around, they are safely hidden from view in a draw stack in the sewing room. I need to do this but yet, I started a new project yesterday. I was in Sharynn's last week and she was putting together a kit called Funny Farm. It was so cute I just had to get one. Here is a link to the website that has the pattern.


The kit uses the Funny Farm collection of fabric. There is a special little guy that I know that will be receiving the finished quilt. I won't mention any names here because I want it to be a surprise for him and I think his Mom might just check out my blog from time to time.

What little boy or girl wouldn't love this quilt?

Hope you are having a great day!

What I have been working on!

I started a new job 3 weeks ago that has kept me pretty busy lately. I like the new job so far especially the fact that I am off every weekend and all the holidays. Add to that the fact that I am now working a day shift job, what more could I ask for!

Between work, housework, etc. I have been working on a couple of things. The main one being a challenge quilt. A challenge for a retreat in September that I am not going to be able to go to. I will miss all my dear friends at the retreat this year. Maybe next year things will be better. Who knows!

The challenge for September was called Dots and Dashes. We are to make a quilt that is constructed of at least 50% of dotted and striped fabric. I still have the borders to add but will need to go to my LQS for something appropriate. Don't stare at it too long or you might go blind! lol It is rather bright! I like it and it will make a great Christmas gift in December.

Do you still have your eyesight? lol

You still have time to get over to Joanne's blog and leave her a comment on her stimulus package! Go now before it is too late!
