More 2016

   Well, a friend suggested yesterday that maybe she would like to just pretend this is her new year and reset. Because apparently her resolutions have not gotten going as she had planned and she just is ready to go now. I have to admit that even though I am working on things that I decided I would work on each month. I completed my Jan. UFO project. Did I tell you last month I was joining the All People Quilt UFO Challenge for 2016. I did and my list is some partial quilt tops that need to be completed and blocks from BOM's that I started years ago. We used 12 month list . On the first of every month they do a random number generator and pick a number. Jan. they used #2, and this month it is #5. The two BOM's I chose for I bought and started in 2006. They were partially pieced, well a few of them were, and two of them I had cut incorrectly and there was no way to fix them. The end of the month I just went out and found fabric that is similar and remade the blocks from start to finish. I discovered that most likely I made the same mistake with both of them and I didn't do a very good job matching the fabrics for it. LOL just going to let it go this time. I have finished all of them, I did find in the Civil War style I have one more block than in the Bluebonnet style. I remember the block and I made it, but it was not with the others and I can't find it. I'll keep looking.

  Feb. is a top I have made with friends from my quilt group, which no longer exist. For Christmas one year we made a block for each person in the group in the colors they choose. I already had a Christmas quilt started in the current then colors of pink and gold. So I asked for traditional red and greed. I laid it out earlier today to see where I was. Looks like I need two more blocks to finish it out, so I will try to find some Christmas fabric in my stash and make a couple of blocks and get it finished up. Maybe I will get it quilted this month too, we will see.
  Time is truly moving faster every year I live. I was told all my life that would be how it worked and I just had no idea how accelerated it would feel. I wish it was not the case, I always feel so behind because of it.
Well, I am off to take care of the laundry. Until next time yall have a very quilty week.
