I have been working on 2 early Christmas presents, want to deliver on Thanksgiving. One was a tree skirt (done) for DS and DIl.  The other is fabric gingerbread men and two tree blocks which will be included with fabric paints for DGSs to decorate as they wish.  Then I need to get back to quilting DGD baby quilt,hard to believe she's eight months old already.

We had brunch with DS and boys today so now have an idea for a birthday gift for the youngest who's BD is the end of Jan.

Hi you all!  I peeked at the other thread periodically but couldn't commit to keeping up.  I am now the new owner of Shelley's >10 yr old Tin Lizzie longarm machine.  DH has been making her new space more comfortable with new lights overhead.  I still need to get mats for the floor and some sort of rolling stool.  I'm sharing the garage with two of our cars and now our son's car has an issue sooooo...  my practice sessions will be interesting!

I also am needing to make my challenge project for the VOS retreat forum challenge and...  ssshhhhh.....  maybe some hostess gifties. 

Oh...  and I am participating in the 2017 Rebekah Smith wool challenge.  So I am doing lots of applique and ** sorry **  can't share pictures until the program is done.

Besides working on my UFOs,  I'm getting ready to start Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt.  Of course, I do have my forever project that I work on during the Nascar races (season ended today) and now during NCAA basketball games  (go Wildcats ... Villanova & Arizona).

I've been working on goodie bag projects for the retreat.  Can't show a picture because they are a surprise.  Also completed 8  Christmas pillowcases for the kids in the family.  Working on a rag quilt for my daughter.  She requested it.  Just have clipping and washing to do.  I'll add a picture hen it is complete.  I have an apron cut out for my oldest granddaughter who plans to be a chef.  Hope to finish it this week.  Also trying a fidgit quilt for my /DMIL.  Some of the blocks are completed.  Not put together yet.  After these are completed, I can get back to my UFO's and there are many.

Picture of the pillowcases in case any missed them on the ''Completed Projects" thread.

That is very impressive to tackle all those photos and turn them into loving albums that your family can enjoy.  I was pretty good about putting all my photos in albums and not tossing them in a box, but several years ago I got new albums and went through my old ones to divide them up between my 3 kids so they could each have their own.  Now all I have are the ones from when I was a kid and my mom's old ones--they can figure out what to do with them when I'm gone!  Now to figure out what to do with the ton of them on my computer.

42 quilts!?!  I do believe you will have plenty to work on with your new machine.

What darling pillow cases!  You have been busy!

I'm so glad you started this up.  I missed reading about what every one is doing.  I've been mostly scrap busting.  I've done several charity quilts from a gazillion 2.5 inch squares and one string quilt.  I think I have enough strings to make a quilt for everyone in my county!  And I do have several tops all layered and ready that I need to quilt--not nearly as many as Pirate!  Only 7 of them.  I did get about 4 or 5 of them finished and when there is a decent day to take them outside for photos, I'll post them.

I’m New and a beginner here is my first Quilt, twin Quilt for my Mother, and making myself a set of Christmas placements, and started a quilt to learn high square pin wheels. Look forward for all your help, Cathy (canurse1)  gave me the opportunity to help enjoy, and love Quilting. Lot to learn but what fun!
