This blog was created solely to be eligible to join the OPAM Challenge. It is my desperate attempt to control the embarassingly high number of untamed, unrestrained and unruly "Works In Slow Progress" that I have inexplicably amassed over the years.

Happy New Year!
I am so surprised that this is the first post of the year! I certainly thought about posting enough times that I guess I thought I really had posted previously . . . at least once! Well here it is, almost the end of the month and I am posting my 1 XMAS item for January. I started this while on a quilting retreat in November, I was speeding along when my Janome finally quit, the next morning a generous quilter lent me her extra machine and I was able to almost finish it except for the last two borders. Now the borders are on, it's quilted and bound. I did not add the label yet because this may be a wedding present down the road, I am going to eventually add two stockings to complete the gift. It's so nice to have a Christmas project done as well as finishing up a WISP! I was able to hang it on the clothesline to take a picture - it was sunny and beautiful today, 66 degrees and it's the end of January! This is by far the craziest winter weather I ever remember, I guess no snow this year. Happy Quilting!
