Progress has slowed on the the stitching front this week as we prepare for a new school year. I will be homeschooling three teenagers this year!
Monday was spent organising books and curriculum a job I am pleased is done:o)
Yesterday we took a trip to New Plymouth, checking out all the sales, and I managed to sneak in a visit to a quilt shop where they were having a sale too;o) I bought a few more pieces for a quilt that’s in the planning stages and a couple of other pieces just because!
Today I am spending the day at home catching up on chores, tonight though I plan to sew!
There has been more organising going on in my craft corner, DH made this spool holder to fit this drawer, cool huh? And no that is not all my threads, I have more we just run out of dowel to make another one.
I am still waiting for some containers to arrive that I ordered the other day so I can finish sorting projects.
Here are some photo’s of 2 UFO’s I dug out from the depths of my stash…
And two of them still need a bit done to them to get them finished. Going by the statistics on this one I sure hope it doesn’t take me 12 years to finish it, Lol.
And a leaders enders project, I still love and I’m not sure why it was relegated to the depths but is now sitting on my desk waiting to be continued…
It’s also time to update my List of goals…
Goal One – Finish two skirts
Goal Two – Paint the little wooden cabinet
Goal Three – Pillowcases
Goal Four – Give Thanks wall hanging
Goal Five – Log Cabin quilt top.
I haven’t added the above UFO’s yet I’m kinda thinking about making the blocks I’ve done so far into cushions and adding the leftover fabric to my stash. What do you think? And the Half and Half quilt is a long term project.
I have also decided to get one quilt a month quilted by a LAQ, I really hope to get through a good chunk of my UFO’s this year. I need to as I have been ordering more fabric online this week and it will help my case to actually have something to show for all my purchases.
Well I better go finish the ironing now, I have it set up in front of the fan to keep me cool, Lol
