It is here! Boxing Day Sew In! Join us on Twitter with hash tag #BDSI. My immediate focus for today is quilting my Arabesque wallhanging and piecing my Stretched Star pattern. All else will be, as they say, icing on the cake.
TQP#11 has been recorded.....
This week I:
* start off babbling
* talk about Joann Fabric coupons
* give a little update on "Hit the Jackpot, part 2
* share my Jelly Roll Race quilt naming
* bring you with me on my FMQ journey
* share a give away for one lucky quilter and one lucky knitter (2 prizes)
* what "Boxing Day" is according to Wiki
* Roll Call
The give away will be drawn, using the random number generator, sometime on New Year's eve.
See you on Twitter and happy sewing. Progress pics to follow in another post.
Until next time.......

Something I would like to focus on, FMQ Challenge 2012. I hope to improve FMQ'ing so that I can quilt the tops that I piece. I want to be able to take what design is in my head to my finger tips, and end up on a quilt top that I pieced. Then I can say, I made that quilt from start to finish. Once I can accomplish that, then the next step is design!
I am planning to organize my time, stash and my work spaces. I would love to be able to finish more quilts. Right now I am in the "top" phase. I would like to be in the running with those who complete from start to finish.
Check out these book raves: Quilters Academy Vol. 1 & 2, by Harriet Hargrave and Carrie Hargrave, Posh Pocket Tips for Quilters, Posh Pocket Tips for Knitters. I am finding them very informative.
Last but not least, I have finished 75% of the "Thermis" neck warmer for my sister. It's time to start thinking of buttons. It should be completed by the weekend.
