Digging Around

Today when I checked my mailbox, I had a nice little surprise from my Secret Sister! She is the best! Here is my goodies....a flannel panel with farm animals on it, a jean pocket that is a magnet and has "Top Of The World" written on it (that is where I live), a notepad and pen set, recipes, and a metal cross cookie cutter!!!! She really pays attention to what I like!!! Of course, I live on a farm so the panel was perfect, and I do live on "Top Of The World" and I love the cross for two reasons....I am a Christian and I also collect metal cookie cutters!!! Thank you so very much Secret Sister!
This evening I started digging around again. I don't have a lot of storage space to put all of my quilting stuff so most of it is in totes. I started cleaning out totes, they get really messy when I get things out all of the time. So here you can see, I refolded some yardage! In this tote is 120+ yards of fabric. All cuts here are over 3 yard pieces, some up to 10yards! :)
While I was digging around I also found this "Bow Tie" quilt that I started several months ago. I have all of the blocks pieces and three sections of the quilt pieced together. Another 30 minutes working on it and I will have the top completed! I am easily sidetracked! :) This is something that I have put at my sewing table to get done ASAP!
I also found these 4 tops that are pieced but just need borders sewn on. Some of the borders are already cut and some of them need cut and I already have the fabric for them.
I found this quilt too!! I love this one. I don't have a lot done on it but it is called "Everlasting Wreath" It is paper pieced and I don't have a lot of it done but I just love the finished quilt on the pattern. It is hard to tell much about it here, because I have it laying on top of another quilt.
Now I will add this one to my list to work on in 2010. I may not get it done, because I have several others to finish too, but I would like to work on it from time to time.

You showed us some beauties in these quilts.

Your secret sister was a sweetheart to send those items.

Have a great week.

I need to go through my UFOs and make a list of what I want to finish in 2010. You are so close to having several more ready to quilt on your frame.
The gifts are so sweet! Don't you love surprises like that?
