9 is the number that was drawn for the monthly goal over at Patchwork Times.
My #9 is old.
The wall hanging began by playing around with Libby Lehman’s threadplay technique. Then I was asked to teach it.
I have no idea how long ago that was. A long time ago. I haven’t taught in years.
And I have no idea what I’m going to do to finish it.
I am linking up with Patchwork Times and One Monthly Goal.

I have chosen to work on Aunt Sukey Spins Off for my January UFO Goal.
This quilt is already under the needle, and most of the top is quilted. I need to get the borders quilted, and that will be my focus.
The bonus will be to get the binding on, too, and be finished, but I’ll be pleased to get the quilting accomplished.
Linking up will keep me accountable, focused, and motivated, so I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts – One Monthly Goal.
Another goal this year, is to embroider the blocks for Aunt Bea’s Parlor.
I have two blocks done. I will be working on this project on Sundays.
Kathy’s Quilts will keep me company. I am linking up with her Slow Sunday Stitching.
May your New Year be filled with blessings and the achievements of your goals!

I am continuing to use up the scraps of hand-dyed fabric by making boxy bags.
You can find the tutorial for the boxy bags in my previous post.
I have made a couple more bags that are not pictured here.
I have also made zip pouches, one for each bag. I found a basic tutorial over at Elm Street Quilts.
I plan on keeping a couple of bags for personal use (I’ve got a trip to Hawaii coming soon!).
The rest of the bags will be Christmas gifts.
I am going to fill them with goodies for the grandkids…the bags are the Christmas wrap! It is going to be fun finding items to fill the bags!
I still have a lot of squares left. I have thought to make pot holders (I do need some), pincushions, and other small items.
Frankly, I’m tired of these squares! Ha, ha! So I am giving them to some creative young ladies.
And I feel great…I am actually thinking ahead for Christmas! No stress!
