+Two Note-Worthy Events+


{One}

How many Unfinished Objects (UFO's) do you have laying around your sewing room? Thanks to Jacquie over at Tallgrass Prairie Studio, we now have some major motivation to get those projects done! Not only will you FINISH all those quilt tops and projects but you could win a fun prize to boot! Click on over to her challenge and get those UFO's done... and breathe easy again!
I've counted my UFO's and I have.... 8 that I want to admit to, and not all are quilts... but all are in various stages of completion:
Baby Boy Quilt - Rylan Andrew arrived Saturday (10/31), a month early!

Vintage Goodness Quilt
Ohio Sky Quilt top:
Yet-to-be-named quilt for my living room:
Crochet Granny Square baby afghan:
A few dozen cloth baby wipes (not necessary until March but hey, why procrastinate?)
Flannel Receiving Blanket for baby, again, why procrastinate? I hope this kid likes orange!
Wonky baby quilt for my Etsy shop:
So thats EIGHT! I've got a lot of work to do between now and January 1st, but I look forward to it, and to seeing everyone's progress on their UFO's... clear sewing spaces, here we come!

{Two}
I've been a follower of the Block Party! Blog for sometime now... and Alissa & Kristen have some great news! They are not only turning their blog into the Block Party Quilt Along but its going to be a book too! Anyone can join this quilt along, and your block could be featured in the book!

For the big kickoff they're having a giveaway! Here's a drool-worthy photo of one of the two prizes:
So run over there and check it out! I'm ready to learn some new block designs and see what everyone else is coming up with as well, in their Flickr pool! A very cool endeavor to be sure!

I feel your pain on the unfinished projects! :) I think us quilters are ADHD or something. LOL

what a great idea, if I only had the time!

I really like your blog and noticed you have a etsy shop too!
I'm looking for people to send me 20-25 promo items from their shop for a holiday boutique!
I need them by Dec.1st!
Those that help me out will also be featured on my blog for the whole month of December.

How cool is that?

You can see more about it on my blog here...
