As we approach the end of our 2020 PHD challenge page, l wanted you all to see this lovely mug rug made by Barbara Hughes ,a lovely surprise! She's made it large enough for all my ducklings to share, so now l'm heading to the kitchen to bake up some goodies...you're all invited to come and enjoy!

Yippee, Gail! Glad it's completed...and just 3 weeks late isn't terrible, after the crazy year we've had. 

This page will remain open for 10 more days. After that, l'll turn off comments, but you'll still be able to " read" it, in case anyone wishes to review. At the end of 2021 it'll be deleted to avoid confusion.

Riana, just wanted you to know that Dustin's quilt is finished and I'm getting a list together for 2021.

Yikes! There was a vote? It must've been held while l wasn't looking,lol. Of course l'll stay on as moderator... but just know, that all my ducklings are now full grown! Participants in the new 2021 challenge will need to encourage each other to success. If someone is " stuck", l hope they won't be shy about asking for help.

Some how I missed the vote, But put me in too. I vote RIana ramains our leader. Thank you .

Wilma, that is a lovely ornament you made for Riana!  A real keepsake for Riana to remember her term as Mama Duck.  And how we all voted for her to stay on another term.

Doug and I just finished our 30 minutes of chair exercises with HASFIT on UTube with Joshua Koval.  Doug high-fived me when we finished!  I recommend it to anyone.  There are 2 versions - seated and standing with weights or water bottles or without.  We do the seated with no weights and we feel good afterwards.

Our tree's still up ( hubby finds it cheery on dark mornings & evenings)... and Snowball loves sleeping under it! He must think we brought a tree in the house for his enjoyment,lol. Since it's artificial, l don't need to worry about dry pine needle fallout...but it's coming down next week. I need my livingroom furniture restored to order!

so cute Wilma, Love your work.

Riana, you are welcome.  Just a small reminder of your challenge as Mama Duck in 2020.  Sure hope 2021 is much better fir all.

Oh Wilma, l love what arrived in the mail from you today! Thankyou!

This page will be closing for comments after one more week, but it will remain as a readable archive for anyone wishing to revisit their " ducklinghood", lol. My darling ducklings are all grown up! Such a journey! I hope all remember Mama duck's lessons on " planning for success" learned this year. Next year, l will continue to moderate, since no one else has volunteered....and l'll be joining in :-)

You can choose ANY 6 projects, Barbara...take your time to formulate the list. Follow the rules above the cartoon at top of the 2021 challenge page page. We're holding the list deadline open until the end of Jan.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 3, 2021 at 9:19am

Yes, I got the message, Thank you!! yes, I think I will be taking off the last row and putting the boarder back on and binding. Can that be one of my 2021 projects? It won't be the best looking quilt in the world but worth it all in the end, I think???? I'll call it the incredably stubborn star quilt of 2020. A reminder of the year we've just been through.

Comment by Riana Noyes on January 2, 2021 at 6:16pm

Barbara, did you see the message l sent you? Hopefully you've decided what to do with project 5 .

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 2, 2021 at 9:55am

Thank you, Barbara.  I am, of course, proud of the quilting I managed to get done in 2020.  And I will continue, hopefully, in the same vein in 2021.  My enthusiasm is rekindled every morning after breakfast when I chat with all my friends here.

Comment by Barbara Hughes on January 2, 2021 at 9:01am

I am truly amazed at all the work done by these ladies.  Liz with 52 projects done and that many started again. Congrats to Liz and to Kris Howell for making it to the finish line. 

Thank you Riana for steering us towards the goal. It has been a good mission.

Yes, Riana,  Beth does fabulous work, I never care about the time she takes, it is always well worth the wait !

I had so much going on last year, so quilting just was much harder to do. But I will be able to do more in the next year.

Thank you Riana it has been fun this year !

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on January 1, 2021 at 9:49am

I had so much fun doing the PHD. challenge in 2020.  Thank you to Riana, my little sister, and all of you "kindred spirits".  It doesn't matter whether you finished 2 or 20 quilt projects in 2020 - I think we all enjoyed quilting together even though we had some frustrating moments - remember my disastrous "Visions of the Forest"?  It did get finished and adopted by my son and DIL.

Now I can't stay around here for too long - have to get at my 2021 list! LOL
