11 in '11

My goal was 11 quilts in 2011.
Tomorrow is Dec 29, 2011.
And #11 is under my sewing machine!
That gives me 3 days to finish this last one.
I think I can, I think I can!
The binding is on and done, yes out of order, I know.
The borders have been quilted.
And I have the inside quilting done about a third of the way.
It'll get done,
I just never imagined it would take me to the last days of 2011 to get it done!
I need to add all my christmas sewing to my tally list,
but early next year I hope to have an approximation for how many projects I completed in 2011.

I hope Santa was good to all of you, my blog friends!
He was definitely good to my house.
The kids got the usual number of electronics and toys.
But the mama? WOW, I impressed someone this year I guess.
  • My new Kindle Fire? I LOVE IT!
  • 2 jelly rolls....Blueberry Crumb Cake and Always & Forever are begging for an idea
  • Matching charm packs will make excellent small things to go with
  • Another charm pack...this one of Ruby, will make throw pillows to match my king size Swoon quilt that is at the top of my list for 2012
  • 3 new quilt books
In case I don't make it back,
which I definitely will, to share my #11,
but just in case,
Have a happy, safe New Years Eve!

Wow! You made out well! Great job with the 11 in 11. You should be proud. I would still be working on #1 on my own list. LOL. Swoon is on my list as well for 2012. I just need to order some extra Ruby yardage. The cutting instructions are really tight on the FQs. I need a little wiggle room. :)
