Holiday Lane Blog Hop - Nov 27

Today is my day for the Holiday Lane pillow blog hop. Thanks to Madame Samm for organizing the hop and to Pauline for being our cheerleader. Thanks also to Jill Finley from Jillily Studio Designs for designing the pattern.

I think my blog should really be called "last minute nelly". My motive in joining the blog hops is to get me back to sewing.  So, although I have sewed a fair bit this fall I have in every instance left it to THE very last minute to complete my project.  So although it is not completely finished, here is my version of the Holiday Lane pattern.  I love dots and when I found these ones in christmas colors, I couldn't resist.  I hope you like it.  (sorry about the poor picture quality)

Happy Holidays everyone :) 
Please have a look see at the other fabulous entries :)

100 Days Hustle aka 33 day hustle

A few weeks ago, I came across an interesting idea (challenge) for helping to finish projects that may have been hanging around the sewing room a little too long and maybe win a prize! Marika with Live, Love, Laugh and Sew posted this: Have you heard about the 100 Day Hustle hosted by Kelsey ? She has challenged us to go through our to-do list, finish those projects to start the new year with a blank page. How great would that be ? She even has link-ups and prizes !!

Well, have I started yet??? uhmmmm - nope. I say it all the time..I am the world's best procrastinator!! LOL

This is my list of unfinished projects I would love to have finished before we welcome 2013.

1. 2nd granddaughters quilt
2. Friend's baby quilt (1st boy due in December)
3. Country Star Quilt

I thought because I only listed 3 projects that that would help me to start and FINISH them. LOL

So, I am writing this post to try and put a fire under "IT" and finish the challenge!!!!
Have any of your started the challenge? If so, how are YOU doing?
