Snowed In {Sew-In}

Winter has officially hit Iowa.  Christmas lights are on.  And...some serious sewing is about to start.  I will be spending some quality time getting lots of sewing done with my mom tonight.  Our sewing machines are set up side by side and ready to go.  I am SO excited! Please excuse the mess, we mean business. :)

Also, if you need some motivation to get some works in progress finished for the new year, check out the Sew it Up {WIP} Challenge over at Vintage Modern Quilts.  All you have to do is make a list of the WIPs you would like to finish before 2011.  Then, at the end of the month there will be a prize for the person who finished the most WIPs.

Here's my list:
1.) 9-Patch Quilt {pieced, quilted, and bound}
2.) Urban Windows Quilt {quilted and bound}
3.) Spider Web Quilt {blocks pieced}
4.) Coffee Cozies
5.) Christmas Quilt {pieced, quilted, and bound}
6.) Freebird Quilt {pieced}
7.) Knitted wrist warmers

A little ambitious??  Maybe. :). 

Well, I am off to hopefully get a jump start on the list tonight.  Happy Sewing!


  1. Sounds like fun! Enjoy, ladies! : )

  2. I really ought to join in one of these sew-ins - that's what I do on Friday nights anyway, sounds like fun to work with a bunch of other people. Good luck with your list!
