Happy New Year

Let's see if I can get back into the blogging world.

This has been a busy holiday season, lots of family fun, but I'm ready to get back to a quiet house and lots of quality time with Mabel. Dan goes back to work on Tuesday, so Wednesday I'll get back in the groove. Not for long though, I may have jury duty on Thursday and Friday I'm going to a short quilt retreat in Perrysville, IN with my Spring Break committee. We'll do some planning for the retreat in March and get some sewing done too.

One of the Facebook groups I belong to is having a UFO challenge in January.  We are to work on our oldest one. This one is pretty old....started in 2009.

 Then it got put away for over 2 years. I finally took it to a retreat to do something with it.

Yesterday, I chose a backing and today I quilted it with Becker's Shooting Star. One of the local groups I quilt with are collecting 53+ quilts for children in a particular school corporation who are homeless. This is my 5th quilt for this drive.

I hope to get the binding finished before Tuesday.

Welcome back to your blog! What a great idea to work on your oldest UFO first this year....I may have to dig a little to find mine! Hope you have some good sewing time ahead this week!

I'm trying to get back to blogging as well. Great idea for the oldest UFO. I am not sure what mine would be. Probably an unfinished top. lol
