This latest bag is call a "Jelly Bag" .....so easy to make! If you don't have a Jelly roll simply cut your own...17 strips and what a great way to use up some of your stash! Only this bag was not made of leftover stash!
While on one of our many trips to Ontario to visit Mom my sister and I would sometimes slip away for a few short hours and of course it was always to the Quilt Shops. We found these prints and the local quilt shop in town and the pattern came from a quilt shop across the border. Bunny Hill Designs..."Jelly Bags"....#1004

Yup... we have been challenged again in our guild to complete as many UFO 's as possible in the 2012 year. Each completed project off this list that is shown at one of our meetings gets your name entered in for a $250.00 gift card at one of our local quilt stores! Guess I better get at it, eh. I have actually gone through my patterns and material stash to find that I have well over 75 projects to be completed. Now how silly is that? ...and yes it is; but what is it with us quilters cause I'm almost betting that you can be sure my list won't be as long as some others! I guess we would almost have to call it an addiction. I just cannot bring myself to walk out of any quilt store without buying more than what I went in for. Enough said about that....there I have confessed!

Not sure if you will have noticed or not but I have completed 6 of my PHD's for 2011. I think I have a few to add to my 2012 list as well as a few new projects. So I guess you could say I better get my quilting butt in gear! I do have my stella does spring quilt for "Show & Tell though and a few more Christmas pictures to share
One of the things that I recieved after Mom passed away this summer was this end table that I helped her to purchase....it will be my table of blessings. It will always be a treasure as well as the photo's that I display on it! Have been thinking of Mom and missing her so much over the holidays and just wanted to share this as well. Love you Mom!

Guess I got told, eh. Those are the words I heard from my sister this evening while chatting on the phone...amd she is right. I knew this really wasn't for me, not sure why I really started this; actually right now as I type I am asking myself that same question again; "Honestly Barb, why are you doing this? You hate journalling or writing letters so why would you be thinking you can be a blogger?" But one thing I do know and that is that I am no Quitter! LOL
So here I sit, tired as can be but I do not want to dissappoint my sister while she is enjoying her morning coffee.
So a few christmas photo's before it really is too late to post them!
