Award and "january finish it up" progress

I have been given "You make my day award" from these three girls Karrin and Lise and Anne Ida. I appriciate it so much. The rules are to give it away to other bloggers that make my day, but there is so hard to choose between you. I have so many wonderful blogs I visit so hereby I give it to all of YOU!!

I'm going away this weekend. Another trip to the cabin with two quilting friends. We have a new project going on. But this time I have been very very clever. I'm only using fabric from my stash (you noticed the badge on my sidebar) I'm on fabric diet. I bought those light fabrics at our annual quiltmeeting last year. So I've had them for almost a year now without using from them. But now........we are going to make a tablerunner from them.



I get reports every day of finished WISPs:

Elin have finished four WISPs this week (three tablerunners, and one tablecloth)
Linda have finished a Christmas wallhanging and a quilt called Illinois Chills.
Monika have finished a little christmas wallhanging.
Eileen have finished a quilt which she forgot to take a photo of before she sendt it to her niece. But you can see the before photo of it.
Nicolette have finished her crazy cat quilt
Lori have finished one quilt out of two tablerunners.
Inger have finished two small wallhangings.
Sigrun have finished a tablerunner with owls.
Christine have turned a cross stich to a beautiful wallquilt combined with fabric. Great idea.
Tracey have finished three beautiful WISPs.
Nancy have finished Wisp #3.

Way to go girls!!!!
You still got 21 days to finish more WISPs and remember to show a photo of the unfinished WISP and then when it's finished. And mail me about it. There is a prize for the one that finishe most WISPs and a little extra prize for one that have joined this challenge.


Saying for today:

Hi May: lovely fabrics and sounds like fun this weekend - we all need to get away with friends and laugh and create in the winter when it is so dark.
I have finished the lovely Garden Path quilt I was handquilting for a client and will post a picture later today. This weekend I will publish the second part of my Tutorial on my Sea Creatures quilt on my blog - check in and look at it.

You don´t have to buy fabric when your stash contains fabrics like that.

Eileen said...

May, I have finished my second project. The TB club pint size quilt. All quilted and even a sleeve on it for hanging. I do have a picture of it up now in my blog.

Your fabrics should make a very pretty runner. Have fun this weekend. Always good to get away with your quilting friends.
