December UFO & WIP Link Up

It’s the last day of the month and of 2019! The December UFO & WIP Link Up is way overdue – but it’s here (I had technical difficulties while in Texas). So, I’ve extended the end date to January 7, 2020. For more information about the 2019 UFO & WIP Challenge, go here.

The prize package for December includes a Nifty Needles assortment pack by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet, two mini charm packs of Walkabout by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda Fabrics, Pineapple Quilt Block Foundation Paper by Fat Quarter Shop, an Add-A-Quarter PLUS ruler, and my latest pattern, Lincoln Stars!

My December finish

I made pouches for all of my children and their significant others. Some were already made earlier in the year, but I did crank out four more this month. Most of these are from kits that I ordered from Sew Lux Fabric. They are my favorite place to go for pouch kits!

I made two placemats for my son and his girlfriend. These are super easy and I used my own tutorial here. I still have two more to make to complete the set.

I also made two travel-size pillow cases for my granddaughters and forgot to take a picture of them.

The biggest WIP that got completed in 2019 was the birth of our grandson, Benjamin Michael! He was one week overdue and we were hoping he would come while we were visiting post Christmas. On Sunday, 12/29, he decided it was time! Kelly made it look so easy (but we know it’s not) and it was an all natural delivery. He’s perfect!
