It is funny!

It is so funny. As I made my goals list for the November/December Charming Girls Quilt Club I KNEW that I was over stretching myself but I posted it anyway. Big plans big dreams! Well of course I fell flat. I did get a few things done but nothing like the list I had planned. I am going to post the ones I got done and feel are fair finishes. Here there are:
Done~October Saturday Sampler~The Black and White Garden BOM
Done~November Saturday Sampler~The Black and White Garden BOM
Done~Secret Santa Christmas Swap
Done~Le Petite for November-Butterchurn by This & That by Sherri Falls

Done~Make 12 ornaments for swap
I do not have a picture of all 12 of them together but this one is mine.

So for Charming Girls Quilt Club I am only counting 5 finishes out of 28. Next set of goals will be much smaller. Well I am going to wrap up the first 6 months of blogging and get ready for a new full year. I am making a few blog changes. Trying to make it reflect a little more of myself. Have a good night.

Merry Christmas to everybody!!

Well that time of year is here again. Somehow it feels different. I am not sure that I like the way it feels. But I wanted to tell everybody thank you for welcoming me into this blogging world. I have had so much fun reading other's ideas and trying new things. I have always wanted to have a passion for something I can make with my hands and quilting is IT! Here is a picture of the snow at my house. I loved this picture and thought I would share it with you.

Merry Christmas!!

Secret Santa Christmas Swap

I can finally show what I made for my Secret Santa Christmas Swap partner. I messed up and contacted her to introduce myself. She was nice enough not to respond. LOL! My partner was Sharon at Vroomans Quilts.  So because I messed up I could not post pictures. I am a bit behind. So when read that she as gotten her gift I can now post some pictures but when I went to look for them I can't find them. I am so sad. Go to her post and check it out. I sent her some candy, a cross stitch and a wall hanging. I loved making it. I use the pattern from . What a fun pattern. I had never done Dresden Plates.

Secret Santa Christmas Swap

Well I am a bit late but I have dropped it into the mail. We just had a snow storm come through that dumped 12 inches. Not a usual occurrence for us. So the mail might travel a little slow until it gets out of Idaho. Swap partner, it is on its way!!!
