Christmas stuff and NewFO 2013 Challenge

Christmas Stuff

I am currently working on a Christmas quilt for my family gift exchange.  I need to get the top finished today and get it quilted on Wednesday as I work tomorrow and Thursday.  I will get it bound on Friday.  That's my plan and I'm sticking to it!  We had a Christmas Open House type party on Saturday.  We've been married almost 40 years and have never had that type of party.  I told my sweet husband that was what I wanted for my anniversary gift - a Christmas party!  Worked for him!
So in getting the house ready for a party, my quilting machine was put away and projects stashed. Today I will pull them out again. I have a Tshirt quilt that I need to get the binding on before Christmas so that I can get it delivered to my great niece.  
Here is a peek at the Christmas quilt I am working on....just a peek in case any of my large extended family happens to read this post.
Coco, one of my Christmas kitties from last year, decided that she needed in the picture sitting on the stack of blocks.

I am joining Barbara for her NewFO 2013 Challenge at her blog, Cat Patches
In January, I will be taking 2 classes from Bonnie Hunter when she comes to Texas.  Teresa, my quilting friend from McKinney, will be taking the classes too.  Yea, lots of fun planned!
One class is Virginia Bound, from Bonnie's book, Scraps and Shirttails.
The second class is Bricks in the Barnyard, from her book, Scraps and Shirttails II.

I imagine that I will be working on these for several weeks to get them finished.  Most likely I will have many more FOs by then!
