Eenie, Meenie, Mienie, Moe

Proper spelling of mienie notwithstanding, I'm having trouble choosing today. Retreat is only 2 sleeps away and I should be gathering projects and supplies to FINISH projects, but I cannot seem to avoid pulling fabric from my stash that I could use to START projects. A couple of days ago, I signed up for Jacquie's Joy in the New Year UFO challenge (see button on my sidebar), pledging to complete 2 of my unquilted tops. I even donated a thread catcher to the prize pool hoping it will help keep me accountable. Does anyone else seem to stall at the quilting phase? I have so many unquilted tops!

One project I will need to start soon is my Fall Quilt Swap. So, with something leafy in mind, I pulled these:

This will be my first online swap, so I want to do a good job! I've been spying on my partner and it's hard to get a read on her quilting tastes...I do have a plan for a little surprise based on her blog and heritage, though. Supplies for that are en route from far away. For now, I've got these to ponder, and possibly cut into, over the weekend.

Don't forget to leave a comment here by Sunday night if you'd like a chance to win my Thread Management give away!

I signed up for Jacquie's challenge, too. I'm hoping it will get me a bit more motivated in the next few weeks. I love (LOVE!!) your choice of fabrics and can't wait to see what you do with all those beauties.

Have fun at the retreat - FOUR WHOLE DAYS! Lucky you!
