UFO Madness!

I've been busy...what else is new? We've been getting 3 times the amount in deliveries as we stock for Christmas! I come home so tired! Friday our furnace at home went on the fritz! ugh, apparently it needs a new motor...the furnace is only 9 years old! The part won't be in until today (Monday)! So I have been living like a refugee from the war! Lots of quilts, sweaters and space heaters! My parents always the optimists, tell me "Now you know what it was like when we were kids in Holland!" My dad says they would leave the window open a bit "because it was healthier" and when they woke up the water in the basin would be frozen and they would use the water from their hot water bottles to wash up with! Yes Dad I am grateful for the what I have, although I wish I had heat!

I did get to spend Saturday at the UFO day with some of the guild and managed to complete the top for my Dutch Mini quilt (July 21st post) I was making. I am glad it is done! Please put mini paper piecing down as "Once is enough"!




Here is Christine at our very organized and tidy work station!

mini quilts and paper piecing both are so "fiddily" I can't imagine pairing the two -- though your final quilt top is pretty :-)

I knew right away that was your project when I was browsing the guild blog. It is very sweet.

love the colors and fabrics - you did a great job putting it all together. but paper-piecing? not for me either anymore. At least you're selling all that merchandise,right? that's excellent.

I love the little top too, the blocks are so cute, but I don't think I'd like the process either. And that table looks organised and creative and productive, you're getting down to Work.
I know I can't feel how cold it is, but that snow looks so pretty and magical. I suppose it's different when you've got to live with it, but that's not a problem here in mid-north South Australia.
