Working At Finishing- Another Win!!! And Other Stuff???

Well, I am glad to say that I have finished my last 3 coin purses, and yah, do you believe that I forgot to take pictures before I sent them on their way for Christmas gifts.  Oh well what can I say.

I received my first win from Kelly of IHAN (I Have A Notion), the Pony Express Book and DVD.


This book is by Jodi Barrows and is used with the Square in a Square Ruler.  Kelly will be ordering a ruler for me.  I might be tackling this project next year sometime.  Might be one of the new projects I plan to use in Barbara’s 2013 New FO Challenge  Linky Party at Cat Patches, you can just click on the button on my side bar to learn more about it.

This also brings me to my second win.  I also won the Amy Butler’s Gypsy Caravan Fat Quarter bundle from Cat Patches.

This is a great win for me since I am trying to breakout of the box of my usual fabric buy of batiks and African fabrics.  Looking forward to creating something new.  Thank you Barbara for the win.

Nancy DREW is a clue

As you know the Nancy Drew Blog Hop has been reschedule for March. YAH!! Since there was some fabric delays, you can now get it and have time to get your project done.  Would you believe that this morning before church, I was flipping through the channels and what was on but a Nancy Drew movie.  I really enjoyed it, and plan to read more of the series.  I thinking I Spy Quilt would do great for this fabric.


Since the Nancy Drew Blog Hop was postpone, Carol has set up another Blog Hop for January, “In Your Words”, which will start January 7-16th.  It will be hosted by Linda of Buzzing and Bumbling.  All you have to do is make any project you want and add a word or words that reveal who you are or more about you.  That sounds simple doesn’t?  Well I am so many things and just having to put a word to me could be a problem or a very big quilt.  So I ask you, any of my blog readers that know me, what word/words would you use to describe me (that request goes out to the UHURU Quilters Guild, the Wee Bee Quilters and anyone who reads my blog).  I have some in mind, but I like to know what you think of me.

Now as you might have read on my last blog, I went out and got a little fuzzy head.  Tom picked me up and I was able to stumble through writing a blog and went to bed.  On my way out to church this morning, I notice that Tom had been cleaning (great guy there) since I have been busy making coin purses and cooking I have not really tried to clean house.  Also while at church, he put up some decorations (Lord, the man does not know what he is doing, just what he wants).  You know I had already put a reef on the door, he added something else.

SAM_2096 Yes, that is red foil on the door.  What came to mind when I saw this was tacky.  I’m leaving it alone.  Next and I am not sure if this will stay out front or not is a tree.


This is not too bad, but I SAM_2097will have to place it some-where else on the porch.  I am not going to show you what he did to the other side of the door.  I am just to embarrass. Tacky could not describe what is on the other side of the door.  I know when I get home from work tomorrow that I will be doing the last of the decorations before that man touches another thing.

I hope next year that I will be more into the decorations, because that man does not know what he is doing.  Well', I got to get ready to watch the Royal Pains move and get ready for work tomorrow.  Let you know what I will be starting tomorrow as if you can keep me away from the blog.

Merry Christmas to All and to All a Goodnight
