Today is Day 1 of Nifty Novelties Blog Hop! I excited to be back to blogging and blog hopping. Thanks to Marian of Seams To Be Sew for hosting. Thanks also to our sponsor Timeless… More
Looking back, from the time I started quilting, I can’t really say I’ve made something really crazy. Unless you count the time I made a fish head costume for my son. I wish I had pictures of that, lol. But, that was not a ‘quilting’ thing anyway.
Thanks so much Carol of Just Let Me Quilt for being such a great hostess.
When Carol first announced this hop I knew right away what pattern I wanted to make and with what fabric. Feathers by The Pattern Basket and Sequoia fabric line by Edyta of Laundry Basket Quilts. I had both in my stash. I bought the pattern last year with the idea when I was feeling better I would try to piece it.
Thanks to Bea of Beaquilter for getting this hop together.
For me this hop was last minute. I had signed up but somehow there was a mix up and my name was missed. But, it all worked out and I was added in around the end of last week.
Of course, that meant I had the weekend to get my project done. But, I was up for the challenge.
I’m a late getting this post up but better late than never I guess. It was a busy January. Regardless, I was able to make some progress on my UFO.
January’s number to work on was 7. Celtic Hearts was my 7th project listed. Though I have stated this before I feel I must say this again. I’m not crazy about hand quilting. When I had first made the decision to hand quilt I was excited to give it a try. Didn’t take long for me to realize hand quilting is not for me. My guess this is why this project became a UFO.
Today is the first day of the Black and White Blog Hop hosted by Carla of Creatin in the Sticks. It’s going to be a fantastic day of awesome quilters and sewers.
It’s been a really long time since I participated in FNwF’s. I’m happy to be back at it. Last night I decided to work on my UFO Challenge project for January, Celtic Hearts. It needs the hand quilting finished. After spending 10 mins on it, it became clear why I didn’t finish to start with. I really don’t enjoy hand quilting. It’s not that I don’t enjoy hand stitching, I do. I just don’t enjoy rocking the needle I guess. lol
As I sat writing this post and thinking about the year that has passed, I wonder were did the time go. I mean, for me it’s just not a new year to come but I also turn 50 in about a week. Wow, where has the time gone. There is this idea that you reach a certain age and that we just look back and think “wow, it’s been a long life”. I don’t feel any different than I did in my twenties or thirties. It doesn’t feel like I should be here already. Time flies and because it does, it’s like age just snuck up on me.
