I look forward to checking in on the blogs I like follow. And I love how one blog leads to another!! There are challenges and motivations everywhere in blogland. I have always been a "list" person. Writing it down and then being able to cross it off when done is very satisfying. I haven't always applied this tactic to my needlework. But now is the time to set goals, hopefully stop staring new UFO's. I found the FMQ challenge on SewCals blog and couldn't resist. I wrote about the Crazy quilting Journal Project--couldn't resist that either!!! The stash busting report on Judy L's site has grabbed me sine I started reading her blog. But the very methodical part of me won't let start until January 1. (I am more type A than I would ever like to admit.) And when on Judy's site this AM I was reading another person's report when what did I see but another challenge--using notions and gadgets that have been waiting!! I will post that site as soon as I go back.
So, while "my boys" are enjoying Sunday football, I am going to my sewing haven and inventory what is in progress, prioritizing (ugh not a nice word for stuff I love) what I want to work on. I think I will identfy categories; Piecing, Applique, Knitting, Stitchery, etch and then maybe put no more than 5 in each one.
P.S. All of this organizing, prioritizing,m categorizing could be the fever talking. I forgot to mention that on Thanksgiving Day I came down with the FLU..Everything from that day until today is a blur!!!. Hmm I wonder how far I will get with this project today--or is it a dream!!

I have long been in love with crazy quilting. I haven't really completed anything but hope springs eternal! The CQJP2012 will begin in January. In addition, Sharon B of Pin Tangle Pintangle will have a TAST (Take a Stitch Tuesday) project introducing a different stitch every Tues. What could be better!!! Do any of you find that take on more than you can handle? I can't choose just one fiber art to focus on. I like knitting, stitcheries, applique, quilting etc., I want to do it all.

Happy Thankgiving. The pumpkin bourbon tart just came out of the oven. the house is beginning to smell like Thanksgiving!!! I saw Erin's post on her blog, One Piece at a Time, about a FMQ challenge for 2012. I couldn't sign up fast enough. Enjoy family friends and good times this week end.

Wher to begin. I know I can be tardy in posting but this time Mother nature had her hand in it. We lost power for 4 days. The northeast has a nor'easter starting last Saturday. There are still many people without power. I was in the middle of working on Myra's mystery last Saturday when our power went out. This afternoon I was able to catch up. I have included a photo of my progress so far.
