On Ringo Lake Clue #4

This weekend went by just as quickly as the last one. We butchered beef all day Saturday, but I found some time on Friday to cut out the parts of clue #4. Last night, after finishing teacher gifts (which I can't show until she opens it), I made 10 clue #4 pieces. These were super simple to make, using the directions for sewing them correctly. I need to finish cutting my brown pieces, but then I'll be able to sew these quickly. I'm doing really well at cutting out the pieces, but haven't had much sewing time, so I'll be doing these at a retreat in January. A few each week keeps me on track.

I was able to get 12 sets of the Clue #3 done from last week. I'm using my pink batik stash to make these.
My finish for the week was this Twist and Turn quilt for my dad and his wife. I was supposed to be done for their anniversary in Sept, but life got in the way so they can open it on Christmas day.
I'm finishing up my UFO list for December, knowing I won't be getting anymore finished. I'll sew clues instead. I was able to put my new UFO list in my new quilters planner and boy I've got a much shorter list this year! Quilters Planner is the website for this one. It's the 3rd year I've had one and I love it.
Yesterday we did our Christmas Eve food shopping. The kids were actually really good at posing for a picture with Santa.

Saturday 4 of the cousins were at my brother and sister in laws house to butcher, so we tried for a picture. Mr. M. didn't cooperate.
The other morning before we decorated the tree. They were up at 5 AM for school, so we had time for a picture.
My secret Santa partner received this needlebook for our Quilters Stitchers online Facebook group swap. I loved the pattern, so I have to make one for myself as well.
I sent this along with a couple fat quarters.

I'm linking up with Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville for the Clue #4 Link up.

I saw the Secret Santa gift on Sara's blog - very nice!

Where did you purchase your Quilter's Planner?

Your Secret Santa pal LOVES her new needle book, thread, candies, etc. The elastic bands to hold the thread are so clever!! Thank you.

Your UFO list is much shorter than mine. I haven't finished mine yet, but hopefully I'll have some time off later this week and next. I did get several UFOs done in 2017 but it hardly made a dent in the list. :-)

I haven't even started my 2018 UFO list, but most of the listed items were already on 2017's (shame on me)! I'm loving your On RIngo Lake units, good job!
