13 in 2013 UFO Challenge

This coming year my dear daughter-in-law, Donna, and I decided we needed to complete some of our long standing projects that seem to mount each year. So this is the challenge - we will finish one project a month = 12, and one to each other that we won't tell each other. That brings our total to 13.

If you would like to join us, please do, and comment on my site and I will list my finishes as well.  Donna - the deal is on.

I finished the top of it Just Takes Two before I left NC last week.  Loving the red and white and it is a reminder of the family quilt of my mom's that was lost. I will have to decide on a name for it and how to do the borders.  It was a great mystery follow along quilt to do this past year.

Now another mystery for 2013, the Easy Street Quilt by Bonnie Hunter []. 
 I have the first step four patches done in golds and browns.  Here is my pile.

 A close up [sorry for the blurriness].
 And a view of the twist on the wrong side of block.
Now off to start step 2, am a few weeks behind on these put hope to catch up.

Christmas Tree Skirts

Here are views of two of the Christmas Tree Skirts I have made this year.
Daughter Grace wanted a blue and silver for her new white tree. So this is a Judy Niemeyer paper pieced star pattern that I used. It looks better in reality than the picture.

The back side is blue and white snowmen. My daughter took the picture on her kitchen floor. Sorry about my feet in the picture.

This is another one for my son and daughter-in-law in red and black.

And the Stockings were Hung

This summer I worked on making new Christmas stockings for the family. My friend Debbie did the embrodiery of the names for them. GREAT JOB, Debbie.

This past weekend the last of the family were together and so everyone now has their stockings to hang and I can now post the pictures.

My son, Richand, and daughter-in-love, Donna, live in Kirksville, Mo and they have three children. ie. corgies.

My daughter in North Carolina has four children and a little maltize.  I am staying with them now taking care of Katie, the newest baby blessing.
Here is a close up of Timothy's.

The girls live in Tenessee and their little dog is Keanu's brother, Harley.

They all seemed to like the stockings. Here is Nana's and Papa's but I don't know where I will be at Christmas yet.
