Four UFO's

Ok, here are my four UFO's for the four UFO challenge.

1. Picnic quilt with heart fabric
2. Niece's quilt
3. Brown Bag Lady quilt
4. Backpack

Ok, the last one is not a quilt, but it is a quilted backpack that I bought the fabric for ages ago. On my niece's quilt, I need to baste and quilt it. The picnic quilt I have the pattern and the fabric for. Since Wes picked #3, I will do the Brown Bag Lady quilt first. The top is done. The top is actually spray basted to the batting. The backing is put together and starched, ready to be basted. I even own the quilting thread.

I will get pictures of them soon. I need to get new batteries for the camera. I had to take the batteries out of the tv remote to take the picture of Ketchup...Snowflakes...

House stuff... Traffic is picking up. We put in new countertops. I really think it is just a matter of timing right now. I know I have over a year before I have to really start worrying. I am having fun seeing how much money I can not spend and how much I can save.

Dave started talking about completely remodeling the kitchen in the new house. I just looked at him like he was crazy. I would like to replace the oven and microwave with a conventional oven/convection oven/microwave combination like my older sister has. I think we will get the cabinets refaced. Although, the other new neighbors had their cabinets replaced, and Dave thinks I will want to do that as soon as I see her kitchen. I am not the type that has to keep up with the Joneses, but we will see. Anyway, we have decided we will move to the new house the first week of June, even if we haven't sold this one. So I need to get back on the wallpaper removal.

Jules, this is too funny!

What did you mean by "I know I have over a year before I have to really start worrying."

Worrying about what?

Worrying about having the money to pay for two mortgages simultaneously. At the moment we aren't having to dig into the savings or the equity, but at some point, I am going to want to spend some money on something, again...

So have you started on the brown bag quilt?

Are you "secretly" doing the Pick 4 Challenge and these are your projects?
