2020 Part 1

2020 came in with all of the best intentions. My plan was to quilt 20 UFO tops in 2020. It was a great plan. I would squeeze in cross stitch as often as I could but I really wanted to finish quilts.

This is a cute Lizzie Kate design called 6 Snow Belles.
I planned to stitch all 6 on piece of fabric and it would be a Christmas present for one of my daughters.
(Spoiler alert--it did and it's so darn cute!!)

I love a good BOM.
This is from Kathleen Tracy.

I think this is both January and February.
I had a box of Thimbleberry scraps from a friend so used mostly those fabrics.

These were my choices for the Moda Blockheads 3 BOW.

I love the mix of the fabrics.

January was a baby shower for Granddaughter Taylor.
I had to make Dwight the Deer for her and her son.

I used recycled shirts on the back.
It is so snuggly soft.

Welcome to the family Bentley Waylon.
We adore you.

I joined an ornament of the month club.
I picked this cutie from a magazine.

We didn't get much snow.
Just a day once in a while.

This sampler was my oldest UFO.
It was fun to just quilt the blocks and then join them.

Frolic was the 2019/20 Quiltville mystery.
I love that I used mostly stash  on this one. 
It was fun to just get it done before it turned into a UFO.

Smith Mountain Morning was gifted to Grandson Elliot.
Another Quiltville design.

This log cabin was gifted to daughter Crystal.

Moda Be My Neighbor was gifted to Daughter Dee.

I love knitting socks and I love using up all the scrap yarn.
Sadly these are still in the on the road knitting bag but are close to being finished.
There is still scrap yarn to be used up.

My friend Julie taught me about basting party.
Baste until you run out of pins.
So I get myself all set up and get busy.

Under the table fort are 3 dogs.

The roll of batting goes on the recliner and the table is pushed over to it.

See all those quilts over by the tv. I think they are all waiting their turn. 
I also think they are all finished quilts. 

I honestly don't know if these were before or at the beginning of Covid lockdown.
But that's a story for another post. 

Until then.....thanks for your sweet comments on my return.

Congratulations on the new baby in the family! Lots of time with needle and thread is always a good thing, new, old, or ongoing :)

So nice to see you posting again, Judy. You kept busy in 2020 despite the "unprecedented times." Happy 2021!

What a sweet new grandbaby! Looks like you have gotten a lot done! Plenty of quilts still to be basted but I guess you only have so many pins. Covid lockdown looks like it was productive.

It's so good to see you are posting again. I have been checking your blog almost daily since November 2019 hoping to find something new. I was beginning to think something awful had happened to you, thank heavens it appears you are ok. I am looking forward to reading your posts again. And congratulations on your new grandson.
