Yep - another great day! I'm doing well at plowing my way through the list of things to do. What else is new - it's the story of my life. But if I had a "real" day job - I'd be doing the same thing! It's just that I'm the boss, so to speak! However, I'm governed by deadlines.
No, the magazine quilt did NOT get quilted yesterday. Sigh... But it's on the long arm, and that's the first thing that gets done this morning once the girls go for their walk.
My little stumble is that I have a block that needed to be done, well, yesterday. When I went to check on the block, I realized that I made the WRONG block. I know - how silly of me to do that. Well, while the magazine quilt is being quilted this morning, I'll be making the new block. The good news is that Block 12 is now made, so that's a bonus!
And I did manage to pick up those customer quilts yesterday. Turns out only three, not four, need to be done by Christmas, so that's more good news. But the list of quilts to be quilted in January is already full. Anything else that comes in goes to February, so if you want to get a quilt in the queue - it's filling up fast.
Another customer quilt is done and almost ready for pickup.

A while back, one of my "friends" (I think it was Shelly who got the conversation going) talked about chicken bones. What the heck is a chicken bone? Relative to a drink and candy?? No idea. But apparently, it's a traditional candy at Christmas. Have I ever had them? I didn't think so.

A couple of points about virtual challenges: YES - I need a wall hanging to put my medals on. They have these amazing metal wall hangings that you can buy.

There are different styles, but I like it when the ribbon is hung on a flat bar instead of a nail. So perhaps after Christmas, I'll look at getting one. Because I'm less than 150 KM from finishing another challenge.
Now, if you are looking for something fun to kick off your January, here's a neat and DOABLE challenge. It's 60KM, and you have between January 1 and 31st to get it done. That's 2 KM each day. That doable!!! And the medal is gorgeous. And to make it more challenging - do the entire 60K outside! Just because we live in this crazy climate doesn't mean we have to stay indoors!
Well, it's time to get moving! I've got a few things that need to be out the door by the end of the day!
Have a super day!!!
