F- Month...

If you remember, Nancie Anne, from 'Nancie Anne Quilts Blog' and I decided that we would declare F-ebruary to be F-inish It Off month and would post about it every F-riday!  So I am here to report how I did...

Seriously, I got a ton done!  I do enjoy a challenge...but thank goodness it's only for February and thank goodness February is a rainy inside month!  Without an inside focus, one could get cabin fever!
Instead I focused on Log Cabins...Cheri Payne's 'Log Cabins Christmas'!

Here it is, with a few tweaks...and I have started to hand applique everything down...
 I quilted my UFO from years ago...random blocks that were leftovers...and it is now bound and ready for a table!
 Love the colours and the scrap-happiness of this quilt!
 This one...another finished and is awaiting quilting and binding...
 It looks better in 'real life'...
 This runner got F-inished..This was another UFO made out of left over squares and HST...yes, I don't throw anything away!

 And a close-up so that you can see the scraps better... stitchery blocks from YEARS ago are finally in a F-inished home!
 I love these sweet blocks...

 So that's THREE UFOs that bit the dust this week!  Happy Dancing around here...albeit a bit of a happy-rain-dance!
So with one more Friday left in February I am setting my sights on Finishing the 'Home For the Holiday' quilt, as the border print has been washed and is waiting...This is another UFO...yes, I have a million of them...haha! One can only laugh about UFOs...and not take them too seriously...right?  They will get finished...someday...!   I think it's important to keep a balance between the 'old' and the NEW...It was my NEW project that kept me happy and content this 'Log Cabin Christmas', which I have renamed my 'Log Cabin Fever' quilt!  A little of this and a little of that, keeps this quilter producing a mat!

What about you?  Do you have any UFOs...or is your closet empty of totes and tubs?  Are you a one project gal or do you have fun juggling all those quilts projects?  Please say I'm not alone...

Now it's time for you to leave me and go and cheer on Nancie Anne!  Nancie Anne isn't retired so she doesn't have the luxury of quilting a bit here and a bit there whenever the fancy strikes her! All I can say is, someday Nancie...someday! Not that I am wishing Nancie Anne to get OLD...gawd forbid!  But I do have to say...old or not...retirement is very SWEET!:o)

Have a Fun Friday and Happy Stitching!~P
