I also was trying to pick a project as my next UFO to finish. I am really DYING to finish my red and white hexie quilt. I know it will take a while and I should probably pick something else but it's something I can work on while watching tv and such so I pulled it back out. Here it is all across my dining room floor (I still haven't moved my table back to the center of the room from having the Christmas tree in there).
I know. I've got a long way to go. I don't know WHY I thought it would be better to do it all in hexies instead of appliqueing it onto a white background. Probably because I have not done much applique that deals with quilting.
I also have the Girl's Twin quilt out on the guest bed so I can get the batting trimmed and get the backing done. I'm thinking of taking it to my church so I have a really big floor to pin it on. I may be able to get it on my dining room floor but I'm not sure. I know I'm going to have to buy more pins.
I am also patiently (not!) awaiting one of my swap packages. I know it's been sent and some people have reported having gotten theirs, but I will probably get mine today. It's from the Polka Dot Swap over at Craftbuds. Lindsay posted this yummy goodness yesterday!
Ach! I can't wait to get my hands on it! Not that I really have a plan yet, but I want it! I'm easily entertained!
And right in the middle of all this chaos? Little Man's birthday party on Friday. Which means I have to make a cake. And I'm thinking of using fondant...for the very first time ever. Not so sure how smart this is but you've got to start somewhere. And it's Ninjago. I don't know how many of you have little boys who have been hit hard by this one, but mine has! It will be at one of the jumpy places around here so we invited his class from school and a couple of other friends. So far half have RSVP'ed, all yeses. But I have heard from a friend whose daughter is in the same class that she invited the whole class, got 7 RSVP's and ended up having 14 kids show up. So I'm worried. I decided not to do treat bags because, how do you prepare for anywhere between 13-26 kids? There's no way! So that's where this week stands. Getting to work on cake today!
