I had hoped that after finishing this one that it would magically start snowing and that I could lay it on the freshly fallen snow for pictures. Alas, this was not to be and I had to settle for the kitchen table. I was hoping for a white Christmas like last year but it looks like it will probably just be a wet Christmas.
Because I am on this crazy UFO kick, some things have fallen by the wayside this Christmas. We did not send out a Christmas card/newsletter this year. And I was really hoping to make cookie plates to hand out to neighbors and friends but it came down to a matter of time. And all I have time for right now is UFOs and my normal duties as a wife and mother. The cookie I will miss the most this year is the sugar cookies that we make every year and sit down and decorate together as a family. It is a recipe I grew up with and for me, they taste like Christmas.
See you tomorrow when I show you my completed UFOs #5, #6, #7, and #8. Awe, yeah!!

Here is UFO #4! I appliqued the snowflake and then layered, quilted, and bound this baby. I am hand binding all of these quilts. Being pressed for time I am a little tempted to do a machine binding but I like the look of a hand sewn binding so much better. So I am taking the time to hand bind these quilts.
