September always marks the back to school routine for students and parents, leaves starting to change colors,and cooler temperatures. Another season is cycling away. I am extremely proud of my UFO no more accomplishments this year. I have freed up many tubs. What am I to do with empty tubs? That is so strange to not keep accumulating new projects. This is very unusual behavior for me. Nine months of staying on target. Now that’s an accomplishment.
On my list it is a Fons & Porter pattern “Neopolitan Delight”. It is a pieced quilt top. No applique, imagine that. Looking forward to getting started on it.
But in the meantime several things are going on. Firstly, I have successfully revived my fig tree. It had lost it leaves and was looking as if it had died. I re-potted it in a larger pot (basically, I finally took it out of the nursery pot it came with when purchased) gave it new potting mix and watered it. I will be bringing it in the house for the upcoming winter. But for now it is on the deck and sprouting new greenery. I am proud to say I did not murder my fig tree!!!!
Secondly I was asked to make a baby quilt for a friend to give as a gift. The parameters were lavender and gray nursery with an owl theme. This is what I came up with: I am finishing the owl applique by hand. Then there will be a gray skinny border and then a 4″ lavender border. I am going to attempt to machine quilt it myself. I mean after all that IS why I bought my dream machine to learn to machine quilt using it. I have been giving myself a pep talk and am pretty ready for the challenge.
Thirdly, Vickie had let me know that my 80’s “what was I thinking” quilt is completed. She has texted me photos and what a transformation. I am actually liking that quilt now. I can hardly wait to see it in person. I will get to see it next weekend. I will post photos when I get it.
This is what is going on in my UFO world right now. Hope your little flying saucers are aligning. Have a wonderful week.
