I have also been working on my Black & White Challenge quilt. I have cut all the fabric and designed it in EQ6. I plan to start sewing on it on Jan. 1.
In the "plan for the future" section of my mind, I have been making plans to get some UFO's and other quilts done. I usually work on two or three projects at the same time. One of those will have to be a UFO or one of the "kits" I have already put together with a pattern, usually of my own design. I have two shelves of "kits" but I tend to forget to go get them when I want to start a new project. So, I have come up with this new idea. I sure hope it works: I really like some of the ideas that became "kits."
And one other bit of news. While I was in Lakeland I bought a kiln. I have wanted to get into fused glass and now I am going to. I have also purchased some glass and some of the tools so I am almost ready to go. I have a plan (another one) for setting it all up and hope to try it out next week. I only want to make jewelry and buttons right now but I think this will be another outlet for creativity: pictures to follow (?).
Addition: We just talked with DH's sister in NH where she has been without electricity for a week. She reported that they are expecting 12" of snow tomorrow and another ice storm over the weekend. Fortunately they just had a wood burning stove installed and cook with gas. However, this has been a really rough time for them. Our prayers continue to go their way.
