A Good Start

2012 is off to a great start. 
I was able to finish another knitted dish rag  ends sewn in and all blocked.  The 2 youngest grand children were here since day care had a Holiday today.  After the cloth dried I recruited them to pull off the pins from the blocking board. They do enjoy these little chores.  After wards the Little one loves to wind cords so I gave him the snippet ball of yarn left over.  He played with that for at least an hour if not more.  Here are PGD#1 and PGS#3 ages 6 and 3.  She lost two teeth during Christmas Vacation.  They both spent the night at Meme and Popi's too.  Reaffirms why women should have children when they are younger.  Boy were we pooped getting up several times through out the night.

As for getting to the drawn #5 UFO, not yet.  I actually finally did put a label on  a quilt that was in the show back in October.  Label and bury the quilting threads on the backing of it has been on my list that still needed to be finished. 
Label ~ CHECK, did last night
Bury threads ~ NEXT!

The Label was made in that software program QUILT ALBUM.  That was the first reason I delayed in finishing the quilt.  Found some time to play around just before the Holidays and made a label with the pertinent data I wanted and printed it out on a prepared purchased fabric.   Boy that stuff was slippery when I started sewing borders around it.  Seemed like every edge was a bias one and thank goodness it was only for the back of the quilt. 
Note to self....if you ever do a photo collage quilt,  print one picture then test the results before you print every thing out.  Removing the paper was a chore and not as easy as I thought it would be.   

Well thanks for stopping by .  I do appreciate all the suggestions and comments.  May you 2012 be all that you desire.
