Prairie Moon's "2011 Final Countdown" Contest

Hi There!

My friend Shelly, over at Prairie Moon Quilts
has her annual "Final Countdown" contest.

Not only can you win a lovely surprise-prize..... Hey, maybe we should invent a new word, here, called "Sur-Prize" - but she also gets you to get off your butt and ACCOMPLISH something.

There's 3 parts to her contest and it started yesterday....

Check it out, here...

Well, yesterday I had to go to work, but once I got home, I started to work on my "Orca Bay Mystery" blocks.

Here's a picture of my design wall.

Some of you might remember that we thought we'd be moving by the end of November and it all fell through. Sooooo, even though I pulled out a quite a few things out of my boxes, I've still got a lot of quilty stuff all packed.

Here, I need to pull out that partially packed box, on the corner of my table and get rid of it!

See behind my chair? I have very little room to move! Boxes are stacked up and yes... I've lost a good part of my design wall, as well. I need to tackle this issue, as well.

And as I was working on my Orca Bay Mystery Quilt, I accumulated scraps and snips and orphan blocks. I truly need to get these organized before it grows into a monster!

And these 4 or 5 bags of scrap?

Yepper.... I need to pull these out and cut them into 2-1/2" strips, for future projects, or into 1-1/4" strips for that Lego Quilt that I had started. Strips that are smaller than that now gets tossed out.

Soooo.... it's now 9h25 a.m.

I will work on the Orca Bay blocks till noon.

After dinner - that's "lunch" for you other people - I will tackle these "issues", take pictures and then report back.

Thanks Shelly for this contest!
