What’s in this blog’s future?

I thought I’d let you know what plans I have for the next little while …

Holiday Seclusion Mystery

Holiday Seclusion Mystery will start on December 26 and end on December 31. It’s a fun and simple mystery. This mystery is not related to the holidays – except for when it’s occurring. However, if you use holiday themed fabric, then it will relate to the holidays.

I’m busy sewing up the mystery and 2 tester s are also sewing up a storm.

Fabric Requirements

  • Background:  1 ½  yards
  • Scraps:   1 – 1½ yards …. (if making a 2 colour quilt, 1 yard)

Come join us!

PHD in 2021

This will be the 4th year that this program has been running. I started it to decrease the number of UFOs that I have. In 2018, I had over 60 UFOs and I keep finding more, tucked away in containers with other stuff. I will be starting 2021 with 17 UFOs … will I get them all completed? I hope so, but who knows. My goal is to finish at least 12!

When I started the PHD in 2018, I realized that I have a passion for starting new projects and not finishing them. Well, the passion is for starting projects and passion for finishing them just didn’t exist. That’s how the number of UFOs grew. SEW … for me, one important aspect of the PHD in 20?? is to complete the new projects that are started. It’s working!

    • Hi Sally,
      There is a way to get emails whenever there is a new post. If you look on the right hand side bar of my blog, you will see a box that says “FOLLOW BLOG VIA EMAIL”. and there is a black box that you click and it should automatically put your email in the system. Then when new blog posts are posted, you will receive an email.
      Happy Quilting! 🙂

  4. That’s a lot coming up for you in the next month! I considered the mystery (I love mystery quilts) but think I have too many projects that I need to do for the beginning of the year. I’m looking forward to the Round Robin and I started my Hearts On Fire project yesterday.

    • Hi Emily!
      I know what you mean about too many projects!!! I feel swamped right now!

      Happy Quilting! 🙂

  5. Hi Gail, good luck with all of your plans! It looks like the PHD was very successful for you. I’m afraid that I’m a PHD drop-out, but that’s ok. I’m desperately working (or thinking about working on my son’s quilt which was my #1 to-do. I’m hoping to at least finish the quilt top by the end of the month. That would certainly be a great achievement! Take care.

    • Hi Andrée,
      There’s no such thing as being a PHD drop-out! I know several people that took a LONG time to accomplish their real-life PhD. The only problem with doing the PHD in 2021 is that you need to start with a new list of 12 UFOs. Hopefully you can join us in 2021.
      I do hope that you are able to finish your son’s quilt top by the end of the year!!! It’ll be a fantastic way to start the new year!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  6. I have to say that joining you in 2020 for ufo busting has been a real eye opener. I wrote down my 12 UFOs that I wanted to complete and then listed new ones as I started them with the intention of finishing them per the rules. I did better on the new projects than the UFOs. I had a lot of rough life challenges in 2020 so I don’t think I did too bad. I am looking forward to next year
