I have enjoyed watching your octopus develop. Love the 'tentacle' fabric that you used. And using it as a cover for your sketch book? Perfect! - Ellen (from FSQ in MoCo)

Wow! Thanks for sharing this tip from Barbara Brackman! I will have to try it when I next put stitches into my EPP travel project. How about Painter's tape rather than Washi?

Billie Lauder.. now there is a name I had forgotten. I loved seeing her on Simply Quilts. Anyway, I googled her name with the word quilt and I was not finding anything in the recent past, nor did I find if she had a home page of her own. Then I spied one that referenced CZT (certified zentangle teacher) and a tutorial! http://tanglepatterns.com/2015/12/czt-billie-lauder-shares-how-to-draw-her-continuous-line-tangle-folk-in-six-easy-steps.html I did not find a lot more besides the tangle folks, but it was a start. :-)

Instead of putting 12 projects on the list, you could always put projects down more than once. Before I played with the 12 numbers plan, I would have a New year's resolution to finish 5 quilts before starting a new one. Often I would accomplish this, and often they were smaller projects, so now most of my UFOs are larger ones. haha. Hope you have a grand holiday season!

I continue to enjoy your blog posts. I absolutely love the blocks you got back. I think my fave is the pentagon block. My mini group has an informal UFO program - create a list of 12 projects (some can be repeated), number them 1-12. Then each month, one person pulls a number each month and announces it. The project on your list that corresponds to that number is what you concentrate on that month. The goal being to move that project farther along. And it does not need to be a UFO - it can be a new project. I have one project that I put on my list twice for the past 3 years. It takes lots of blocks, so I 'move it forward' each month by however blocks I make. OH - and I do work on other projects, but mostly, I put projects that are indeed UFOs and I want to get'er'done. One of the others in the group always puts 'bindings' down as one of her 12 and she concentrated on them for a month. I would hope to not get that number pulled in the summer - it's too hot them to do bindings. ;-)

Major Congratulations Linda! I was tickled to talk with you yesterday. I'm so glad that you are so very excited for your win of this cutie.

I have to admit that I had to look up bicornu pincushions. I love pincushions and will definitely have to try this one!

I've been enjoying your posts this week! My guild had the Fries come out for a program about a year ago. The local quilting community will surely miss them. Loving the pin weaving post as well. I'll be 'keeping an eye' out for your progress and future posts on that. It is something new to me. Cheers, Ellen in Maryland (MoCo)

Hi Linda, My current obsession includes all matters of turquoise combined with charcoal grey - especially if that charcoal comes from thrifted shirts (100% cotton ones are not easy to find!).

Linda - yea that red Persian styled rug. :-) I showed the photo to DH and he immediately said "that's just like the one you made". I think we still have it (storage) - I'll have to dig it out or find a photo. We used to have it hanging on our livingroom wall. Brings back memories. !!

The amazing thing is that the rug below the hexie rug is one that I latch-hooked many years ago. :-) I looked on the Ikea site - do they really have it? (lol - mine is rolled up in the laundry room)

Wouldn't that fractal cabbage make a wonderful tool to stamp some fabric ink/paint onto a blank solid or reads-as solid?

hi Linda, I met you many many years ago on GEnie. (Remember that 'place'?) And have been fortunate to visit your shop over the years after I learned of it. I was sad to hear of the closing, but I hope the closing opens new adventures for you. I had to post because I also see fiber-y textures in the most mundane things sometimes. :-) I've actually been enjoying the abundance of snow storms we've had his year, but I'm now ready for the greening of the trees (Spring). Cheers, Ellen
