PhD 6 Project Progam

How many UFO's do you have in your sewing room? or better stashed throughout your home? Do you need some help and encouragement to get a few of them done? Well look no further...
Starting January 15, 2014 at Kelly Ann's Quilting we will be starting the PhD 6 Project Program.

Are you familiar with the term PhD? I’m not talking about a Doctor of Philosophy degree. I’m referring to those unfinished projects – Projects Half Done! Does that describe your UFO’s? The Kelly Ann’s Quilting PhD 6 Project Program will run for six months. You choose six projects that you want to finish. It can be any project, at any stage – number them 1 to 6. Send me an email (, bring your list into the shop or post the details on the Kelly Ann’s Facebook page with PhD in the subject line, and give me your project list, numbered and with the name of the projects. I’ll pick a number on the 15th day of the month and post it to my blog and Facebook that will be the project you work on for the month. The objective is to get you to finish some of your projects, but if you don’t finish during the month just set it aside and start working on the next project when a new number is published. The program will begin January 15th.
  • Finish your project during the month and send me a picture to post on the blog (or better yet, bring it in for show and tell!) and be entered to win a $10 Kelly Ann’s gift certificate.
  • The person with the most finishes from their registered project list at the end of six months will win a $25 Kelly Ann’s gift certificate (in the event of a tie, the winner will be drawn at random.) Several people have asked for the definition of finishedsince the goal is to get you working on those UFO’s here’s what I’ve come up with: projects that are smaller than lap size must be totally finished; lap size and larger projects will be considered finished as tops. Only the six registered projects are eligible. And projects include bags, table runners...
Now you have all the details start going through your projects and send/bring in/post the list and get ready to be handed your first number.

Until next time
Be Kind

A Personal Post

Please indulge me as I write this very personal post....

When an obituary doesn't tell the whole story:

On Christmas day I received a phone call from my nephew that my brother had passed away in his sleep. His death was sudden and with no warning. Time stood still and I didn't know if I could catch my breath from the shock.

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.

I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.

Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
