Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us; And confirm for us the work of our hands; Yes, confirm the work of our hands.

February means DaGMT

  While I was doing my after Christmas straightening, I took notes as I organized and actually made a chart of what I had started, what I had waiting, what I had bought certain fabrics for.

            Don't worry if you can't read it. Sometimes I don't even know what I'm talking about.

   All~ well, a lot~ of the plans that were jumbled in my head were finally on paper with the hope that crossing them off who be so much fun I might actually get them done. Along comes February to help. What's so special about February? It's time for Quilting Hottie Haven's annual Drop and Give Me Twenty!

This is a great opportunity to work on and knock out some finishes for those UFOs, WIPs,
Git Er Dones that are hanging around and begging to be done. Twenty minutes (at least) a day, every day-- it is amazing how much you can accomplish! Sign up, make a pledge and post your progress and you could win some great prizes.
 
Without further ado, here is my edited and pasted promise, pledge, plea~
 
"I, meg, (owner of too many UFOs and/or more fabric than I can hope to use up in my lifetime) am joining Quilting Hottie Haven's third annual DaGMT event, and pledge to quilt for at least 20 minutes, (usually first thing in the morning before I drag the children kicking and screaming from their beds to the homeschool table), every day of the month of February, 2014. In doing so I hope to (make way for more fabric purchases, give everyone in my family a quilt for Christmas and ensure my children don't someday have to sort through 89 UFOs and then sell them for $5 each at a yard sale) and I think Beth Helfter is brilliant for coming up with this concept and inspiring me to join. Again."

Join in, won't you?

So happy to have you back! You are going to whip a ton of projects into submission, I just know it!

Oh, and I keep forgetting to send you an email to tell you how flipping cute you are, so I will do it here so all will know of your adorability. Thank you so much for the Chick-fil-a coupons! The girls and I will enjoy them!

Beth, as you know I'm very new to the blog world. I just wanted to say thank you for finding my blog and encouraging me. My list of projects is in the form of photos. I like to take pictures of the process. I'm a visual person. Your list looks very organized. I plan on grabbing something from my pile of UFO's and seeing which one inspires me in the moment. My quilting friends think I'm very organized. If they only knew. Having it all written down means you can CROSS it off the list when it's done. Now that would feel good. I look forward to seeing your projects.
