Then Judy said she was going to host a Monthly Blog Quilt a Thon. We talked about it, and thought maybe I could just pretend that those were my new *at home retreat* days.... and then the day came....
and we had snow, and ice, and the water tank heater needed human help, and the horses hooves needed human help, and ... then there were sports..... and well - you all know that the whole *retreat* thing did not happen.
However!!! I still got a lot done ( well a lot in my world)
Tip #1 to myself - Prepare anyways. Prep your 2-3 projects you are going to work on and hide the rest.
Tip #2 to myself - Plan meals, and prep them ahead of time.... and even if the ranch work falls in on you, you still have a nice warm dinner.
My First Project - my January UFO/OMG - got all 12 blocks made and then put these little borders on them.... I have a plan people - I have a plan now!!
Quilted a little bit. I might have a LOT of my own tops that need to be quilted. If they are QOV"s for some reason I am more dedicated in getting them quilted - here is to the Year of Quilting on my own!
I am changing the colors just a little - those 4 white squares around the star are supposed to be yellow, and I didn't like it... Didn't hate it - but didn't like it - so! I now have 1 whole block made, and am ready to dig in to the other 15
( oh ya - Part A of Clue 7 is all done)
Mystery #5 - This is one of those - I can;t show you but....... parts.....
I host the MysteryQuilts4Military Yahoo Group - and our Next mystery starts next month - so I was finishing up the final details..... you should join in - it is going to be fun!!!
And when you are done- you will have a Quilt of Valor ready to go!
I know that lots of coordinators are needing quilts, and lots of groups would love to have you help out!!
