This is an older photo of a quilt that I have started. It is called "Grandmother's Choice" I know there are a million patterns with that same name and they are all different. I started this one several years ago and I really do want to finish it. I have dug it out several times to work on it and I could not find the pattern. So....late last night, I found the pattern in the magazine so I put it with the blocks that I have finished. I only have 6 blocks finished as you can see here, I already have them sewn together. Anyway, I have a ton of other things to do first, but I think that this will be one of my first projects to finish after the new year.
This morning we went to Church and after Church they had a Thanksgiving Dinner. I baked yesterday evening for it, there was tons of food. I ate too much, I was as full as a tick!! :) Came home and I had a headache, took some Motrin and took a nap. I slept for a few hours. Richard and the boys were outside working on the old 1951 truck of mine. They took the fenders and grill off today. They are going to slowly restore it for me! We have had it sitting here for a few years now and haven't had time to really do anything to it. So right now there are going to move the front fenders in the outbuilding and sand them down this Winter.
I have so many things that I have to get finished before Christmas! I just need to pace myself and I know that I can get them finished as long as I don't put them off. Now the first list here doesn't actually have to be finished until January 9th. Mom has to work Christmas so we will be celebrating Christmas with mom when she gets home. So that is planned for the 9th of January!
* Quilt Pink Bargello (Queen) and do the binding--Chantal's Christmas gift
* Binding on Gabe's quilt
* Binding on Zeph's quilt
* Quilt Madison's Peace Sign quilt and do the binding
Now these things need to be done before Christmas...
* 4 More Couch Caddies
* several potholders (this is a maybe, not sure if I will do these or not)
* Nascar quilt--this is a customer that wants me to PIECE the quilt, quilt it and bind it.
* Binding on Donkey's quilt
* Quilt Star Wars quilt for Hunter
After I broke it down into 2 different lists, it doesn't seem that bad!!!! Now I feel better looking at it like that! :) Oh and I have some customer quilts too, which is great because with the holidays coming, I can certainly use the extra money!!!!
