I'm back!

A lot has happened since I last posted . . . we moved to another home, we traveled a lot due to our son-in-law being deployed, so we helped my daughter and family move from Hawaii to Massachusetts to Ohio, I lost my Mom in October of 2015 and then my Dad in November 2015 and then I was diagnosed with breast cancer in December of 2015.  I have just begun to feel like my old self and have begun piecing/quilting again!  I have promised myself that I'm going to finish the majority of my many, many UFO's and PIGS before beginning a new project!  I've been working on them since a week before Christmas and I have completed 5 tops but I've only quilted and bound one of them so far. This is Christmas Lights by Bonnie Hunter.  I bound it in the kelly green and it's so striking!  Hope to post the other 4 as soon as I have finished quilting them!
I have decided to participate in Judy Laquidara's Get it Done Challenge.  She always seems to get me motivated.  Tomorrow I will post my list of 12 UFO's as I have to choose, and there are so very many to choose from!
