Last 2016 WIPs Be Gone

Here is my last WIP Be Gone for 2016:
And it isn't even mine -  a dear friends UFO that I took over when she was clearing out fabric bins to make room at her summer home years ago.  I just couldn't let it get tossed.  I've added the white fabric matting and the outside border.  I'd like to find a teeny sampan to place on the river, then sandwich and do some quilting.  Setting a goal of Jan 15th - we get together on the 17th.  Wish me time.

Over 50% done with the next round of part 1 of Bliss.  Five more to go.  It's the slow process of EPP.

Signed up to take part in Judy's http://patchworktimes.com Quiltathon and her UFO challenge.  She plans one weekend a month to sew all out.  And her UFO challenge has us pick 12 UFOs to work on - one a month.  And if that wasn't enough, I signed on with Persimmons and Chintz for her 17 in 2017 which gets us trying to make significant progress on 17 UFOs (12 will be the ones I picked for Judy's challenge.  Insert WIPs in place of all those UFOs and that's what I'll be reporting on in the coming new year on my weekend WIPs Be Gone post. I'll hope your join me for the linky party then (no party this week, still sort of on vacation) to share what's moving forward in your sewing studios.  Who knows we even may have a giveaway or two.

Well done Angie, you have done very well. I'm rapt that I managed to finish an extra 3 Christmas ufos before Christmas day. It's a bit scary thinking about finishing 17 ufos, not sure whether I should try that. Lol. Perhaps I should just (wo)man up and put it out there. I think it's called hedging your bets. Rofl. Happy new year, Clare

My goodness, that seems like a challenging list . . . but, at least you know what you'll be working on in 2017! I'm looking forward to following your progress.
