The end of the year is near. It is definitely time to see what you can cross of the list to make room for new projects next year. Or just start thinking about all the new projects you want to start next year. Why is it that planning new projects is so much fun?

It is hard to believe that December has already arrived. It is officially time to start finishing up. If you can't finish it up this year, then feel free to carry it in to next year. Hopefully though, crossing things off the list will make room for new projects in the new year.

I hope those in the US are all finding some time on the long holiday weekend to squeeze in a little bit of sewing. I've had some driving time, so handwork has been a nice companion. No photos yet. Hopefully you will all help fill the void with some fabric goodness or holiday cheer.

We had yesterday as a holiday, so I am all rested and refreshed. I was scheduled for a 10 mile run this morning, but my running partner came down with a migrane. I already have my running shoes on, so I am debating what to do next. It is a beautiful fall day, here. It has been so nice to turn off the air conditioner and enjoy the fresh air for a change.

I did a spree of finishing things earlier this year, so I believe that I have several tops awaiting quilting to think about this month. I just had a load of shirts dropped off yesterday for a graduation t-shirt quilt, so that will move to the front of the list. Anna is graduating this year too, so I'm guessing she will want one of those as well.

I am digging deep into the orphan block bin. Anything that doesn't get used up will be turned into more crumbs or strings. With company coming, the clearing out is highly motivated. I did some more organization, hanging and labeling finished flimsies to be quilted later as I broke down the quilting machine to set up a bed again in the guest bedroom. I was amazed at how much dust quilting generates. The whole process had me sneezing.Pineapple Blossom pattern that I use to make a green and brown baby quilt for a very organic baby shower gift. It was a huge hit! I think it was 8 years ago though, so it was time to do something with the extras. So with a quick layer of thinsulate and some simple quilting and binding, I now have two new pot holders to use in the kitchen.
