Well, here it is, 4 months after my test...

I had great intentions of getting my blog up and going again. Then August hit and away I went. I wasn’t home for more than 10 days at a time since then until the first week of November.  But here I am, wanting to record what I’m doing and no better place than this blog.  I probably have lost all my followers, but that’s okay, I want to keep this as a record for me!

So, following Sarah, of “Confessions of a Fabric Addict” blog,  I want to post a list of what I’d like to accomplish on Monday and then at the end of the week, post pictures of what I actually got done.

I have been keeping a list each week for the last 3 weeks, but won’t post those and will just start with this week:

Goals for week of November 25:

1. Make backings for 6 quilt tops for FHF

2. Quilt 6 tops for FHF.  
 My Goal is to get 6 tops done per week until all done!
3. Make last of cosmetic bags for birthday gifts. 
    These are for the last two (plus me) gals in my Twisted Sisters group as birthday gifts. 
I’ve done 5 so far. 
4.  Finish blanket stitching Snowman Quilt.

 I’ve been doing this in stages as it is SO Boring! But I only have 1 more snowflake to do.
5. Clean last two windows.
 I ran out of time last week and never got back to it.
6. Fix Checkerboard Rail Fence. 

I posted a picture and someone pointed out a block that was wrong. See where the black is touching the black?I was so thankful as I somehow overlooked it. Will be an easy fix, I just have to do it!!
7. Rearrange Raskogs for scrap projects. 

They have become very messy and jumbled. I need to get each basket organized 
so it’s easy to grab things out of there to sew. ,
8. Put bindings on 6 FHF quilts that I did this week! 
9. Put binding on 4 of my quilts.

10. Re-design embroidery and trace for pillows for friends.
I think it is going to take me too long to get these hand-embroidered in time for our Christmas party—so need to do something a bit easier!! 

11. Make pillow tops for above.

That is it, but things come up every week that interrupt my flow. Squirrel?? That’s me!

So— that’s my plan, we’ll see how it all pans out, this being Thanksgiving week and all. My sister and family are coming in town for Thanksgiving (staying at my parents) but I do plan on doing some baking with her while she is here.

Wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving— be safe and warm and most of all, grateful for all the blessings we have received this year!
