11th Annual Final Countdown Winners

My 2020 Project List

My yearly list of 12 things. Last year, I was super overly ambitious. I knew it was at the time, and you all warned me, but I was pie-in-the-sky hopeful about it. Here’s what it was: I did finish my 36-Patch quilt: I made 16 pillowcases, and still have umpteen more cut out, so I […]

A Happy Surprise!

Happy New Year to me! My Cowboy went out at chore time last night, and discovered that Blossom had twins during the afternoon! Blossom is my best nanny goat, the best mother, and never needs help, and prefers to be left alone, so it’s probably good I didn’t know she was having them so I […]

December 350 Blocks Report

The final Block Report of the year! How did you do? I’m unhappy to report that I did not make a single block this month. So my final month’s total is a big fat ZERO. I had big longarming goals, so I was at the longarm pretty much all my sewing time, and even then, […]

2019 Final Countdown Task Three

Well, yesterday was one of those days. I found every possible way to procrastinate (such as these), and never even stepped foot into my sewing room. But in my defense, I do have some tight January longarm deadlines, so I spent my time running the longarm, and even tho I wanted to, I did not […]

2019 Final Countdown Task Two

Yikes! I cleaned out a file drawer, started on another one, went through a pile of magazines, gathered all the paperwork I need to send to my accountant, sorted through a box of old patterns and passed the ones I didn’t want on to a friend, and found a place for the ones I want […]

I haven’t linked this in awhile, and it’s good for a laugh (the hair!), so go give this a listen to help get you in the mood for our Final Countdown! You’d think after eleven years of doing this, I wouldn’t need to do it any more, but alas, such is not the case. We’ll […]
