More UFO madness

The block above is #54 of my Nearly Insane block. It made me insane and it is one of the easier blocks on the quilt. This weeks block had a zillion pieces so I put it off until I go on vacation.
The block above and below is my "Home is Where the Heart is" BOM. I am making these into wall hangings and I was able to get December's block quilted, bound and hung today. I am making this project the next UFO I am going to bust. I have 10 of the other months ready to sandwich and 1 ready to stitch.
The blocks below belong to my "Applique Affair" BOM. This one is done with a flannel back round and wool applique pieces. These are the border blocks. I need to make a total of 20 of these. 16 down, 4 to go. :) There are 25 center blocks of which I have 10 done, 3 prepped and 12 to go.
This little furry creature is Daisy. She is 99% better!!! I just have to make sure she doesn't do anything to get her spine out of whack. Try telling that to a 6yr old. UGH!!!
I hope you all have a Happy, Healthy week!

Nearly Insane Block 85

49 pieces and 6" INSANITY!

I was also able to get 7 wool blocks prepped this weekend. Slowly but surely the UFO's are getting worked on.

I had a scare with one of my dogs. She has been diagnosed with degenerative disk disease. I was fortunate that medication was able to get her up and moving. Now I have to make sure that she doesn't run or jump too much so she doesn't re-injure herself. Next time it could mean neurosurgery. :(

I hope you all have a healthy, happy week.

Who Stole October??

I am not sure what happened with October. It just flew on by! I have been in my sewing room when I get the chance. I even went over to The Orange Quilt Bee 3 Sundays in a row to be able to sew with my friends. I was able to pin/quilt the red work Christmas quilt that I started last year. This weekend I was able to finish up my September and October "Home Is Where The Heart Is" BOM. We are supposed to get together at Joy's house the day after Thanksgiving to get started on November and December blocks. Next year I plan on turning them into monthly wall hangings. 201o will be the year of the UFO!

The next 2 blocks are the final ones for my "An Angel's Story" quilt. I need to start cutting the sashing squares and start putting them all together. These gals just crack me up!!! I hope to get this one pinned and quilted next.

The next 5 are my weekly "Nearly Insane" blocks. I am now only 1 week behind. WOO HOO!! I decided that I am going to keep working on these as a weekly block and I put away all my Jane's. My goal is to not have any UFO's left. I want to work on one weekly block project and one other project ONLY at a time. Is this possible??? We shall see.

I hope to be able to keep up with weekly posts again and get caught up on my Blog reading too! I hope you all have a healthy, happy week.

Keep on stitching!
