I have finished one UFO.  Sadly, it was not on my 12 UFO's list to do over this year, because I would like to have credit for finishing it.  This is a picture of the completed class sample for my Painless Cathedral Windows project, all quilted and bound.

And here's the most recent crazy quilt block for my embroidery quilt.  Fifteen more to go.  You can't see it well unless you click on the picture to enlarge it.

Today is guild, followed by at least 3 hours finishing my ugly fabric challenge.  (There are those who do not think that this fabric is ugly, but I assure you -- it is.)

And tonight the ladies in my development are getting together to plan our activities for the coming year.  We are a very diverse group.  Many retirees.  Some young folks just starting their families.  And the occasional mid-age woman well ensconced in her career and enjoying the benefits of living at the lake while continuing to reap the fruits of her efforts in building her business and reputation.  I remember those days with fondness but am very glad to have these elder years to rest and amuse myself with things that interest me and that don't have timetables attached.  What am I saying?!  I DO have timetables -- getting classes organized, doing quilting for others, and at the very least, getting dinner on the table before midnight! 

Silly me!  And here I thought I was retired....
