Time goes by sooooooo fast.  We came down to Bushnell to stay for three months while it is cold at home.  I miss my kids and I miss my grandkids so much.  This would be perfect if the kids were in and out like they are at home. 

I did not realize it had been so long since I posted in my blog.  I have got so much done while we have been down here but I have not made a dent in what I brought down here to work on.  I have finished several of my mill hill kits.  Every thing else that I brought down here is missing something that I need to work with. 

I will never come down here again without my sewing machine.  I can not wait to get home and clean up my sewing room and play in there for the next three months. 

I have a wedding to go to in April.
I have a family vacation planned for May.
I have close to 10 quilts that are still in my sewing room that needs working on and finishing.  I will spend April, May and June trying to finish them up and doing the finishing work on what I have stitched while I have been down here.

I will recap my stitching progress a little later after I take some pictures.
Quilts to finish when I get home.
I have two quilts for Aunt Mavis that her mother embroidered.  One is a heart block and the other is a rose quilt where all the roses are a different color.

I have three quilts for Jan Stewart that I have had for 5 or 6 years but she keeps telling me not to worry about them because she does not have the money to pay for them to be quilted.  I am going to do them just to get them out of my sewing room.

I have a row robin Halloween quilt that needs some beads put on one row and I will be finished with it.

I have a paper pieced red white and blue quilt that was done when I was on the HGTV message board swap.

I have two double sliced layer cake quilts done in batiks that I pieced for the camper that I want to quilt.

I have a Judy N Fire Island Hosta quilt that needs the outside border finished that I want o use in the camper.

I have a stamped cross stitched quilt that belongs to Jean Jacobs of Baldwyn that needs to be finished hand quilting.

I want a quilting machine with a stitch regulator on it where I can learn how to free motion quilt.
I want a Phoenix frame from sewing machines plus
I want to upgrade my pcquilter to a side saddle like Marj's.
I need a new heater/AC for my sewing room
My sewing room needs a major cleaning.

This is my pine cone snowman

This is my Santa with his chicken and pine cone.  I will look again for a picture of my other snowman

Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Men have been put on hold.  I have used up all of some of my threads.  I have stitched it all that I have thread for and I have ordered the thread.  It shipped on Tuesday but I don't know how long it will take to get here.  In the mean time I have been working on the 2015 Mill Hill designs.  2014 Mill Hill did 6 Jim Shore Santas.  This past year they did three Jim Shore snowmen and three Jim Shore Santas  I have all the snowmen finished and one santa These are two of the snowmen,  I can not find the pictures of the rest of them  I will go look and come back and post a picture of them.

My next project for completion will be my Lizzie Kate 6 Fat Men design.
I finished Benjamin.  I had a 14 hour marathon of stitching yesterday and ended up with a touch of vertigo this morning.  No more stitching that long with out getting up and moving around some to keep my head cleared
