"Snow Days"

No, we're not having snow YET but rumor has it we're going to get some in the next couple of days.....
Me, I could wait for the snow to come on Tuesday but that's just me.  You ask why Tuesday?  Well, I go back to school on Wednesday and could enjoy a couple extra days off...ya know?

Anyway....My 2013 UFO list is made and ready to post this weekend but I decided that I had to pull the "Snow Days" project out to work on.  It was #1 on my UFO list and although it's totally NOT me, I was almost paralyzed at the thought of pulling the pile of blocks, fabric and embroidery units out.    Did I mention that this is totally not like me to be so apprehensive?  Well, I was!
 I did get lucky though....One of the girls I did the BOM with had posted a picture of one of the troublesome areas "for me" to the yahoo site we'd set up to show each other our progress so I took it "One step at a time, small sections, not just the big picture" and guess what?  That worked!!!

So, it's up on the design wall and there's only 1 small opening so all I need to do is pull some small units that are already made out, connect them and then get crackin assembling the center. 

I cannot believe I just let it all go since July 2010!!!!
It's almost embarrasing!  

Oh well, I'm not gonna talk about it anymore, just get sewing and hopefully be done before I have to put it on the 2013 UFO list.....

Slow and steady wins the race! Keep at it, little by little, and you will be done in no time!

I am always excited when I see someone working on this quilt. I bought at in Houston 3 years ago and haven't touched it yet. It will be for me when I do make it because it is beautiful and so much work. I was trying to get some of my UFO's out of the way so I could be prepared to start it, but so many babies keep being born and young couples getting married that I haven't seen an end in site. I am going to try again this year to start it just for me. Thanks for sharing yours!
