Fabric and acronyms

Today I got the fabric I ordered for my adventcalendar. I've finished all the stitcheries and will now start making the heart blocks that goes between the stitchery blocks.
And these are the fabric I found in my stash to go with the new fabric. WOW....I'm actually using someting from my stash!!!! It feels good.

Will start preparing it tomorrow, today I have to clean up the house a little bit. My DD is coming back home from school and I want everything to be ready so we can have some quality time together this weekend.

Today I found this list of quilter's acronyms on this blog.

FART = Fabric Acquisition Road Trip

FIU = Finish It Up

HSY = Haven’t Started Yet

OBW = one-block wonder

PIGS = projects in grocery sacks

PIPS = projects in process

SABLE = Stash Accumulation Beyond Life Expectancy

SEX = Stash Enhancement EXperience (or Expedition)

UFO = UnFinished Object

USO = UnStarted Object

VIP = Very Important Project

WHIMM = Works Hidden In My Mind

WIP = Work in Progress

WIWMI = Wish It Would Make Itself

WOMBAT = Waste of Money, Batting, and Time

WWIT = What Was I Thinking

I want to add some extra words I've made up some time ago:

WISP = Work In Slow Progress
