Am I in over my head?

Hi Everyone!
Hope you are all doing well. It was a great weekend for me. On Saturday we did Quilt till you Wilt at the Cloth Castle. This is a once a month get together where you work on your UFO's. It was are first time back since June. We were all so happy to see each other that I was so busy talking that I got nothing done. It was great to catch up with everyone.

Sunday My sister Natasha and I went back to the shop and did some quilting. It was fun to get some work done since I did nothing the night before. When I got home I was reading all the blogs I follow. There are a lot. I see so many blog that are doing quilt alongs. I wonder hmm would I like something like that? Then I think that is a lot of pressure what if you don't get it done. Makes my heart race a little bit. Then i keep reading some blogs and come across a Christmas Quilt Along. It made my breath stop my heart race and sent my mind whirring. When I see something I like this often happens. Then i start something like a Dear Jane and think oh my what have I done. Well this little Christmas Quilt Along was the cutest thing I have seen.
Is not the cutest Christmas banner! I saw it and knew I had to make it. This Christmas Quilt Along is  being Hosted by Sew Happy. I checked out the blog and you should to. Figured out how this Quilt Along works and signed up. As soon as I hit send I thought Miriam what have you gotten yourself into? Then I look at the picture again and I fall in love all over again. I will keep you all posted on my progress.The first block is getting relesed this Friday. I will just add this to my many projects.
 How about you? Will you be doing any Sew Alongs/Quilt Alongs?


  1. I'm trying to stay away from the Quilt Along's because I can't get done what I need to but these sure look enticing. Good luck and keep those needles sharp.

  2. Yes, this banner is VERY cute...but I'm thinking more quilt than banner...I'm downloading them that's for sure!! VERY sweet!
    Good luck!
