UFO ParadeThanks to the mysteries of the interweb, I somehow lost Debra's submission for the December 1 UFO Parade. Which is sad, because it's a beauty! Rather than make you all wait until next month to see her finish, I'll show it now.
I'm leaving the photos "biggie size" so you can click on them and see the detail.
Here is what Deb wrote about her finish:
My #3 is finally done with one more to complete the year. Are you going to be doing this again next year? If so, I would like to sign up - this has been fun - if I wasn't such a procrastinator I would be done much quicker (I think) but this forces me to complete a quilt a month.Now you see why I feel so bad about losing Debra's submisssion! Gorgeous, huh? And I envy people who can do handwork like that. Deb, please accept my apology for losing you. I hope you won't let this keep you from playing along next year with "12 Finishes in 2014!"
My Item 3 is actually two pieces. The first is called Ima Flake by Tricia Cribbs. It is a redwork stitchery of a gramma knitting snowflakes. The second piece is a Bird Brain Designs pattern called Santa Portrait Trio Redwork. I am really pleased with the way both of the stitcheries came out and by next December they will be quilted and bound - hehehehhehe!!!
I am ready for the last challenge of the year and really appreciate you putting this all together. I love the parades - they are truly inspirational.
Traveling TreasuresIt has been so much fun reading from where everyone reads "52 Quilts!" It's still dark in Colorado, so I'll take a photo of my "pinned" map later today and post it with tomorrow's Celtic Solstice Mystery report.
Because the Traveling Treasures envelope came to me from Brisbane, Australia, I am delighted to report that the Random Number Generator chose number 42 (the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything):
Who happens to be from South Australia!
Pinnylea, I found an email button on your profile page, but my email server didn't want to contact you. So please, please, send me an email at Aunt Marti at 52 Quilts dot com and tell me your postal address! I've been collecting Colorado goodies to send to you! Congratulations!
Negative 8 Fahrenheit (that's negative 22 Celsius!) this morning. I wish I could come visit you in Australia!
