The UFO challenge is down to the last two months... so why not just eeny-meeny the numbers and make a decision.
Many of mine are waiting their turn at Donna's but I'm sure they will be beautiful when she quilts them.
School is a little nuts this week... no major quilting getting done.

" A whole lotta shakin' goin' on..."
"Shake, Rattle, and Roll"
What a way to spend our first inservice day of the new year. Sitting in my room and the floor vibrates. Of course being the sarcastic person I am I looked at the other two team teachers and said "Did the earth move for you?"
and to the think the day started with the migraine from.....
Hope you had a good day!

My latest acquisition? The Farmer's Wife book and CD. I ordered it all prior to knowing that A: the patterns are available as PDFs on line (can't remember where but I downloaded it on the PC) B: You can use Marti Michel's acrylic templates (haven't bought them yet).
So where do I begin????? I think that this will be 'after school starts' project.

On the quilting front I got my next hand-quilting project thread-basted over the weekend. I want to get the the quilt top made for that special someone (who is practically standing behind me) done before school starts. I'm about half finished and plan to stay home tomorrow and complete the task.
On the weather side of things... RAIN!!!!! We have had more rain in the last few days then we've had in over a month. It is lovely to see puddles along the road and the green grass again.
Hope all is well with you in your corner of the world.

The first task is a quilt I was asked to make for a friend. Actually there are two.. one top is finished already.
The second task is a quilt for someone special but I can't talk about it 'cause I don't know if this someone special reads my blog on a regular basis.
And since there is only three weeks left until I am officially in school mode... I need to multi-task.... does all this make sense??

As a history major and quilt lover it will be an great read. But mainly because of this quilt. It's HEXAGONS (I think I'm obsessed with them). Isn't that awesome? Will I ever make it????
I can dream can't I? (There are way too many question marks in this post).
You can read all about the evolution of this beautiful quilt at Gum Valley Quilts. The gal's name is Linda and she lives in Victoria, Australia. I am awestruck!
I can't find the book at the usual haunts, Amazon or Barnes and Noble. If any of my Aussie friends would be willing to purchase a copy and send it to me, I will gladly send fabric or a copy of my guild's documentation book of our local quilts or we can figure something else out.
