Happy New Year to everyone. I have enjoyed more time off of work this past week than I have have in several years. Back to work on Wednesday but wow, amazing how much can get done each day when you do not have to go to work!! I am frantically finishing up projects so I an start a new one sometime soon but I am realizing that I really need to finish up some of the many I have started. I am almost done with Mimi's Bloomers, Erin Russek's 2012 BOM so I am just working on setting solutions. I may have to make an extra block or two (boo hoo) but it should be stunning. I am planning on doing applique in the corner blocks also!! Below is the finishing touches for My Whimsical Quilt Garden borders, which are almost done, a few more days and I will be pinning it. Now to get ready for the Beginning Machine Quilting Class I am taking in a week or so!! So excited because there is hope I can get some of these projects completely finished up, quilted and bound, so I can start the next wonderful applique project.

Not much going on this week, I have my Whimsical Quilt Garden quilt on the wall as I plan the applique for the border. The pattern shows circles, lots of circles, but I think I will go with some of the flowers and birds from the pattern. Just need to start getting it done!! I start my new job today so I have a feeling my productivity on quilts will fall a bit as I figure out my new job. Really looking forward to the challenge so I think it will be fun!!! Yes, I am bringing my usual bag of applique with to work in case I have large amounts of down time....you never know!! Wish me luck! Check out the other design walls on Judy's blog.

I am loving every minute I get to sew each day and I am really looking forward to the holidays. I will be able to take almost a week and a half off and only use three vacation days!! All my kids will be home for the holidays and I am hoping for multiple family meals, a few game nights and at least three or four family nights watching a good movie or two! I just need to make it through the next two weeks and I will be good to go!! Remember to check out Judy's blog and see all the other design walls.

One question if any one can answer, a bit of machine oil got on one quilt, any way to get it off??
