UFO Busting #85

Welcome back to another addition of UFO Busting.  Where we are working like little elves to get those last minute projects wrapped up because Santa is watching!  Or in my case, we are finding a million little things to distract ourselves from the work we should be doing.  This month at work, it is all about the elf.  Our newest employee is straight from the North Pole and is having so much fun hanging with the humans.

Uno the Elf was hired around the first of December and is our temporary Christmas help.  He's been quick to learn the ropes and there may even be a little office romance a-budding.

All of this Christmas magic made me realize...I've been a very good girl this year.  I completed all of the Island Batik challenges and kept up with our Saturday linky party pretty consistently.  So when the good folks at Blueprint waved a one day 75% off for members deal, I said, yes please!!!

These four quilt kits are making their way to my house and I'm super excited (like I need more kits!!!)  Starting in the top left we have Andromeda Fractals Wavelength, Sunburst Fractals Gravity Quilt Kit, Piece and Joy Garden Party Quilt Kit and Sasha Fractals Quilt Kit.  I can't wait to pet them when they get here!!

More than that I can't wait to make them in the upcoming year.  With 2019 wrapping up, my focus will be on what my 2020 will look like, sewing wise.  Life is starting to settle down and find its rhythm again.  I hope to post more frequently and begin focusing on "me" projects.  I've missed social sewing!!!

Speaking of social sewing, that's what this party is all about!  Let's see what you guys brought to the party last week.  First up, we have Donna Lee  at DonnaLeeQ working like a little elf to get last minute Christmas gifts all wrapped up.

Make sure you pop over for a visit and check out the items on her Christmas sewing table.  You also need to meet Morty.  Morty the mouse, turtle or moose?  I'm not telling.  Go say hello!

Next up we have Melva over at Melva Loves Scraps.  Melva participated in the virtual cookie exchange that has been happening in blogland hosted by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt.  Melva was serving up a batch of super yummy looking (and healthier for you!) Magic Cookie Bars.

She also shared a video for a super cute covered dish carrier that would come in handy when delivering your favorite holiday treats to loved ones.  Make sure you visit Melva and check out those cookie bars!  The smell great!  That's how good they are.  I can smell them through the picture!

Now it's your turn.  Let's see what you've been up to this week.  Link up below and tell us all about it!

The kits look like fun. My favorite is the tiger! Happy Stitching!

Emily said...

Wow, those are great-looking kits! The stars in the upper left and the tiger especially caught my eye. Can't wait to see your posts on those!

It makes me mad that US bluprint members get deals that other countries do not... That tiger one is incredible. Fun to have new projects on their way for 2020. As for you and Uno, he'd be the kind of guy that all women would love: a great listener. :-)

Thanks for the shout out. I hope you are doing well. Christmas Blessings,

Yay for treating yourself! Such fabulous quilts you’ve chosen for 2020. And each so different.

Oh, you have some cool kits coming your way! Glad you are finding a rhythm, Tish, and I look forward to seeing what comes out of your sewing room next year. Thanks for hosting the linky -- hopefully I'll have something to link up next week!

That's awesome that you have a work elf. You couldn't pass up 75% off. I need to get organized and figure out plans for 2020. Perhaps I should finish 2019 projects first LOL

Barb said...

I took a look at those quilt kits but didn't buy any, glad you did. So exciting to get packages.
