Happy New Year!

Here's wishing you all a very happy and prosperous new year! 2012 came and went with a bang! Way too fast if you ask me....But, 2013 will be an even better year, I just know it!
I am so blessed and I thank God for everything and everyone in my life. We serve and awesome God. The same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Once again, I have lined up UFOs to do in 2013. Carrie P, has a UFO project going and very well worth following! If I read her post right, you sign up to do 3 in January and the other blog is Judy Laquidera at  that is doing this as well. On Judys list you sign up to do 4 UFOs.  I love both these blogs and use them a lot. Sometimes I join in challanges, like this UFO Challenge, which will be different from 2012.  They can be small or big, whatever you think you can produce. Go check out their rules.
These are my 4 projects for December:
1. Square up Bunnyhill Snowman blocks
2. Add windmill to my Our Village quilt block
3. Add mail box to Our Village house block.
4. Applique tree top and mini quilts to Our Village
house block.
 The Our Village quilt top has been in the making since 1993! Can't wait to see it done!

Working to finish up my December UFO! Almost done!

Over My Fireplace

This is a puzzle I did a couple of years ago. I sealed and framed it.

I've got my November UFO all put together. Now it goes to the quilter......yes, I quilt with my checkbook!
This was a block of the month I started years ago that I got from a quilt shop in Montclair California. It was fun to put together each month.
 This is how I started and below is finished top!

Another Major Job Finished!

We have been working on painting the front porch of our new home and it has taken us a couple of months because of the weather and because we tire easily in our old retired age! But this job has been well worth the hard work. I think next we will tackle the yard. I'd like some bushes. We planted 75 Bearded Iris bulbs and 100 Daffodils that vary in colors. Spring should tell us how we did!

 This is my UFO for October! All done! It was a little time consuming but worth it!
The light color is a very pale peach and stands out more than this picture shows.
It is a full size quilt.

Well, by now you all know I didn't get my April UFO even started. Everything has be so hectic since we bought this new house. Things moved fast once we were approved and it took us old people a long time to get everything done. This is a picture of our new home. We love it. It is way out in the country. I'm still not unpacked totally but getting there. I'm just going to take my time. After all, tomorrow is another day....famous words huh?
