Get ready for the Dirty Dozen! 6-22-21

For those of you who have not joined in the past, here’s the scoop. Gather 12 unfinished projects – quilting, needlework, scrapbooking, gardening, house hold projects – whatever you like. Number them 1-12. On the first of each month I will choose a number out of the fishbowl and announce it here on the blog. You will then work on finishing that project by the end of the month at which time you will take a picture and send it to my email. Be sure to include your name in the photo – not a note to me. I can’t possibly keep everyone’s project and name connected. I will then post the Dirty Dozen photos on the blog as I receive them. I don’t have the time to correspond with each of you but you’ll see your quilt or project in a blog post.

Let this be incentive to each of you to finish up those projects – the reward will be not only your finished quilt but the opportunity to start a new project which is what we all want to do.

I’ll take this time to also give you permission to send other finished quilts to my email for posting on the blog. We all love the quilt show so don’t be shy! And me your photos!

Connie and I are working HARD on the new book and it’s going well but that means I have nothing to show you since the book will not be released until fall 2022. Ugh. Such a long time from now! We are both enjoying using a new color palette with fabrics we recently purchased in Kansas City. And by the way – we see that the Des Moines Guild will be having their show this September in the 4-H building at the fairgrounds. We’ll be going for sure!

Here are today’s Dirty Dozen quilts:

Can’t get the pictures to post in the body of the text!!!!!

I will load the pictures in another post – there are days that I HATE this blog!

    I thought the guild show was virtual only? I need to look into that! Thanks for the heads up! Enjoy the nice weather, and rain this week, Iowa needs it!

      Diana in DM – oh my gosh, maybe it is! I was sure I saw a sign but who knows?

      Diana in DM – I looked it up and yes, it says virtual but I know the sign said in the 4-H building at the fairgrounds – I wouldn’t have known that otherwise. Hmmmmm……

      Attending DM Guild meeting at the moment and it was just announced that the next quilt show will be in 2022 ( Sept 22-24). Virtual show for 2021 has been cancelled.

    I look forward to each of your posts. I hope Jo’s daughter can help you with the technical problems. We love the pictures you post and keeping up with what you are up to. Working on my Dirty Dozen list for next year. I finished half the projects on the list this year but finished three others not on the list. So a grand total of 9 finished projects a year is pretty good for me! You keep me motivated!
