Where has the time gone.  I was going to try to keep up my Sunday night posts but time keeps whizzing by way too fast.

This morning I was able to finish the borders on my Saltbox Sampler.  This was one of few quilts that the borders actually measured what the pattern said it would.

I am all caught up with Fat Quarters Mystery BOM.  This easy block gave me fits.  Sometimes the easier blocks give me more grief than the ones with a zillion pieces.

I finished the embroidery and applique on block 3 of "Merry Merry Snowmen".  

Ranette and I decided that we are going to copy Temecula Quilt Company's new BOM and use our stash.  We are doing the Civil War Diary quilt in 6" and 3" versions.   We are going to shoot for a block a week.   

Joy, Ranette and I decided to join in the new online BOW.  It's called Grandmother's Choice.   I am going to keep my blocks simple and use two colors only per block.

Joy also challenged me to finish my Farmer's Wife.  I am going to try to get one done per week.  I have designated Friday to work on all my block of the weeks.   Here are the last two I did. 

Joy also challenged me to finish last years. Civil War block of the week.  I saved all the files before they disappear and got busy.  

I am all caught up with my "Comfort and Joy" BOM.  Next month I start the borders.  It looks like this may be finished before Christmas.  

Well, that's it so far.   I am going to try to keep up with my Sunday evening updates so I don't get too far behind.   

I hope everyone has a great week!
