time for a stash report

Hi everyone,  I know, bad blogger, not posting enough.  I have had a few little hiccups here.  namely I can't download my phone pictures to my flashdrive.  I send as jpgs, but can only save as files.  not good.  and my camera isn't charging.  sigh...  My talented son in law, is figuring out the computer problem for me.  I had to buy a charger for my camera and a card reader for the little card in the camera.  I have damaged the prongs in the camera so I cant insert the cords. and I have been under the weather a bit. no bigger, just not up to par.  so not too much sewing.

I have found a few scrappy quilts I want to make next year. so if there is time, I will start them this month so they will be UFOs for next year!  Oh my sooooo bad!  the last week this month, I will share my plan of attack for next year and what I have left in UFOs.  scarey!  but I have done so well this year, that I want to keep up the momentum.  I will be adding a few UFOs from new starts this year.  I finished much more of those than I started.  which is a good thing.  I also want to get better with free motion quilting and with ruler work.  lots of quilty things for next year.
