Finish-a-long, first quarter...






Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap Blog is hosting a quarterly project where you finish up projects and can win some really cool prizes including Aurifil thread.  I'm thrilled after an email to Alex at Aurifil, him and Rhonda got in touch and he sent some yummy thread that I REALLY REALLY want to win.  Click the link or the image  for more information on how to sign up. 2012 Finish a Long 

I wasn't sure I really wanted to join in as I'm not great with UFO's but after looking at my large list yesterday UFO's  I've decided that I'm going to get the following finished by end of March.
  1. Finish the stitching on all of the 7 blocks of the Christmas SAL 
  2. Get this finished, need to buy some fabric for the outer border, back and quilt it

3, I know its not technically a UFO but I have got the fabric, pattern and some of the strips sew up...need it completed for my DH to send for it to be auctioned/sold at his bosses Parkinson's Stall at Easter


 4, Finally, finish the 12 Days of Christmas  mini sew along, I can't show you as its for a present and people watch my blog...but I can confirm I've completed block 8

It'll definitely be a challenge as I need to get a mug rug done and a birthday machine embroidery project done for Feb and wanted to get a start on DH's Space invader quilt which was for his birthday in April but I think may be a xmas present :O)
