Welcome to 2024! We all finished a LOT of PhDs in 2023 and I know we can do more this year. It helps when we have the support of your MJF sisters to keep us on track.

Please join with us this year to finish those UFOs and PhDs (Projects Half Done). Doesn't PhD sounds more important? I have so many PhD and I'm always finding (starting?) more. Most of my projects are fabric or yarn related - those are my media of choice.

You can post a list and when you finish a project you can add the date and post a picture so we can all see what you've completed, admire the talents of our farmgirl sisters, and encourage others to complete their projects.

How many projects can you finish each month? Let's try for at least 1 a month, though I know MJF farmgirls are very talented and I'm sure you can do more.

Please keep the lid off that bin Nancy. Those little buggers get up to mischief if left in there too long. Compromising their privacy will slow them down but not stop the shenanigans.

Great job, Judith.

So far at my guild, due to all the traveling Ed and I have been doing, I’m behind #s 10, 2, 3, and 4. Lol! I’m trying to catch up this month with at least a couple.

One is reorganizing/cleaning my creativity/quilting room, and it is almost done. Between cleaning and organizing, I have done 13 blocks from a 2014 black/white strip swap, with 9 more half done. I’ll post pictures when I get a few more done. I also have a couple more projects pulled to work on, too. As long as Ed doean’t pull an impromptu trip, I may just make it. LOL!

That is amazing Karen! Ii can't wait to get all of my fabric UFOs done! They fill a bin! I have gotten some curtains finished for a nursery. Very happy to have those out of my sewing room! As I clean through my sewing room again, I am finding more of the little critters to add to the stuffed bin. I think that I may be working on them forever (I sure do hope not). Getting out a needlework piece to finish next.

Karen -- Congratulations on finishing UFOs! It's amazing how much you can get done at retreats.

This month the quilt guild drew number 11. This was a stack of blocks I found in a drawer; can't even remember when I made them, but here is the top I made:

Grace your Scotty dog towel is so cute! Marie, I am intrigues at your beautiful shawl made from scraps with the new to me, fuzzy eyelash yarn. It turned out very pretty with all those rich warm colors.

Grace, your puppy is adorable! Great job.

Thank you. I had a large amount of DK and very thin two-ply leftovers. I paired them up to create this thus destashing 2 yarns at the same time.

Marie I love your shawl so much! The mix up of the leftover yarns is so appealing to me.

A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel.

This is a UFO that I have finished. I had started a corner-to-corner shawl when I first heard of the techniques.



The shawl has been made from all kinds of left over yarn.



This is the top edge with fuzzy eyelash yarn.



This is more of the middle of the shawl. I really like it.

When your power goes out for 2 hours and it’s 97’ degrees outside… you have a good excuse to sit, sew and have a glass of wine…
I finally finished up this Scotty dog towel. (& my glass of wine. ;>)

Time for me to pick it up with working on my UFOs. . .it's too hot during the day to do much else! Maybe I can bust out a few this next week! trying to get most of them done by the end of the year. Unfortunately, there are quite a few. I have been finding more of them as I clean through my house. They seem to be multiplying as I write this!
