The First Design Wall Monday of 2012

Here's what I've been working on. I started Planet Patchwork's New Years Day mystery yesterday.  Oops -- I started a new quilt, didn't I?  Here's what I got done in one day.  This is one clue.  I spent the whole day working on this.  It called for 2.5" strips which I was happy to use from my collection of strips.  Except a lot of mine were short pieces 3" to 5".  It would have gone much faster if I had used 22" long strips.  This is what took me nearly the whole day.  I'll sew the next clue this morning since I pinned them together last night.  And then I'm watching the Tournament of Roses parade and the Rose Bowl game. 

Goals for Week of 12/26/11
Finish Christmas cards and mail
Make 4 blocks for FCQ Equilters Komen donation quilts
Make more log cabin blocks
Work on Carolina Christmas (finish clue 4) Almost done with all of these
Cut fabric for Planet Patchwork’s New Year’s Day Mystery
Start the Temecula Quilt Store 12 Days of Christmas Mystery
Begin working on another secret project. Shoot, what was this secret project??? Oh yes, fabric is selected…. 

I did pretty well on getting things done this past week.  So what's coming up this first week of 2012.
