I'm heading back to the 70's/80's to do the hustle!
She's going to be our fearless leader in this 100 day sewing
Why not join our batch of unfinished quilters and crafters, with their wips and pigs in hand,
and make a pledge that you will make as much of a dent in your bundles as humanly possible
by DECEMBER 31, 2012?
All you need to do is make a list,
check it twice,
link to Kelsey's post tomorrow
and you're in!
Midway through we'll post our progress ( or lack thereof )
and then on December 31 another post of what we've accomplished.
Easy Peasy, right? Right!
Oh, by the way...
I heard on the QT (not really, Kelsey told us)
she's going to have
How's that for a little extra motivation?
Prizes and completed projects, a cleared sewing table ready for the New Year, Hmmmm?
Here's my list of P.I.G.'s (projects in grocerybags)
First up,
I've had this on the go for at least 4 years now.
the binding and label.
Not sure what's been taking so long with this.

My little guy needs a hand getting this quilt sewn up for Dad's birthday, Dec. 1.
CJ has picked all the fabrics and started sewing it together but got a little bogged down when he went back to school.

Now these have been in this state for the past 3 (or 4) Christmases.
They need to be finished!

I made such a great start and actually had the top finished in a short time but then I stalled out.
I need to get er done, winter's a comin'!

Keep going!

This is another P.I.G. that's been in the bag waaay too long.
I can't even remember when I started this Whirlygiggle.

This 9 Patch is even older than the Whirlygiggle,
I'm sew embarrassed.

Last but not least, I'm sure, (ya right!!) 
is this bag.
I've had the pattern for more than a year
and the bag I am using is pathetic.
Just to make things a little more interesting I'll add a few gifties for the Holidays,
let's see there's the teachers for all 4 of my kiddos,
one or two are expecting from what I'm told,
a couple of friends that go above and beyond...
I WON!!!
Yep, I won Cindy's Dots On Dots Giveaway!
I'm now the proud owner of this pattern
I'm going to add it to my list because it's sew darn cute,
I can't resist!
Thank you Cindy & Wilson!
