Hello Everyone...I can't believe it's February already!!! What happened to January? I said I was going to blog better...and I lost January!!! LOL!!! Oh well! 

I have a bunch to share...Above is my first UFO finish for the year...."Scraps off the Floor". It is my goal to get at least 10 UFO's done this year....and now I only need to get 9 done!! Yeah!!! 
The back .... super love this small quilt. Made with batiks. Literally made from scraps off the floor.

Made this mini for my Sit and Sew group I have in my house.

Binding it next and sending it off to it's new home. Will come back and do a post of a finished picture of this mini and the one I receive.

I also, I got a chance to go to Orlando in December with a friend ...We went to Animal Kingdom. Which is the place of the brand new Pandora exhibit as well. I am A HUGE fan of the movie.!!! I was soooo looking forward to going.

It was just mind blowing the way they have made it look so real!!!
I really enjoyed my day!!! 
Darlene and I had an AWESOME day!!! You can see the Big TREE of Animals behind us.
And Of course I had to wear my Pooh ears!

Well...I believe I have caught you all up...

 Oh wait ... one more thing...

What a fun mini swap, and your scraps quilt is such a happy one. Nice to see the Animal Kingdom pics- my quilting friend is flying down in the spring for a visit there and we are looking forward to it. Congratulations on having your quilt exhibited at QuiltCon! Enjoy your trip.

Wow! The photos at Animal Kingdom look so real. I couldn’t believe it until I read what you wrote. Fantastic and lucky you. Your quilting crew all did wonderful work on the minis. Congratulations on being accepted in Quiltcon 2018. Can’t wait to see photos from that event.
