How has your week been? Productive? Mine has been! Let's take a look--

THE  List:

3. Con't work on Modern Medallion- Handstitched Class-- Wow! I love this project and fabric and I want it to be perfect!  Sometimes that also makes me hesitate because I don't want to screw it up! But hey, if you don't try you never learn! Reverse Applique dogwood cut out and ready to stitch. 

4. Modern Stash Bee Blocks for January (2)- due 2/15  January blocks are complete and so are Feb! Yea!

5.Sugar Block BOM with StitcheryDiceryDock for January- due end of Jan Jan complete! on to Feb block

6.Paper Piecing Stars BOM with Don't Call Me Betsy - Printed patterns and chose fabric - ready to start - I am finding the paper piecing a bit intimidating, I just need reprogram my  brain and sit down and do it!! (I have done it before - a looong time ago- and love the results!) Jan and Feb blocks to do.

7. Binding on Batik Flowers quilt for A Lovely Year of Finishes- due end of Jan-- started the binding but didn't get it finished in time for January prizes. Will move it to Feb for a finish.

8. The Triple Zip Along with Debbie over on Flickr- this is going to be so Fun- it runs Jan 28 - Friday 2/15 -- Fabric and lining Cut out ready to stitch up on Friday.

9. Finish my House Block for the Sew South group quilt for the Ronald McDonald House in Charlotte NC-- such a fun and worthwhile project! It is going to be sew awesome!

10. Solids Bee- Feb block for Erin - started, was on a roll until I accidently cut a piece of material wrong, so I am waiting on the replacement strip-- how embarrassing! You know stuff just happens sometimes!

 March block fabrics and pattern received.
11. Swaps: Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets, Low Volume II, and Text Me a Text FQ -- all mailed

and the best news this week so far: I won a gift certificate from Christa Quilts! She gives a $10 gift certificate away each week to one of her newsletter subscribers! I was so surprised! I have purchased fabric from Christa along with other quilting notions. She has a variety of fabric and precuts and runs daily and weekly specials.
