Have a list for January. It is only partially completed. January isn’t finished yet, there are still some days left to me. Unfortunately, not enough to finish my list. So I guess those left unchecked will have to roll over to February. Playing catch-up is not how I wanted to start the new year, especially when I have such high hopes of completing so many of my UFO’s still hanging in there waiting for my attention. If only, I didn’t get sidetracked. I see ideas for beautiful quilts, and I itch to make my own conveniently forgetting that I have tubs (many, many) of UFO’s that need to be completed. Plus there are so many BOM’s being presented each month only to tease me and tempt me. Where will I get the will power to stay on my journey and stay the course of my UFO project lists? It’s the journey, right? I believe it’s too easy to get lost and have sensory overload when there are new ideas and fabrics being presented everyday. Or is it just me and my love of fabric and quilting?
Enough of that. Let me focus on what I did get accomplished. I made two project bags this month. I finished a beautiful baby quilt. I actually quilted it myself. I am pretty proud of that fact and feel I did a very respectable job. I prepped block 6 of A Boy & A Girl, it is now ready to hand applique. I sewed the sashings around all 12 Saturday Sampler 2016 blocks. Read the instructions for the 1/2 log cabin blocks. I am now ready to start cutting fabric for those blocks. I think I’m still dragging my feet on the 1/2 log cabin blocks because I have made them before using a different technique that I really liked and have used many times with log cabin blocks. For some reason I am stalling trying this new technique. Wish I new why? I’m generally up for a challenge.
I have one week before Saturday Sampler meeting. I’ll challenge myself to see just how much I can get accomplished this week on the 2016 Saturday Sampler. NO NEW UFO’s in my house!!! That’s the goal.
Happy Stitches Everyone
