Thank you so much for stopping by. I’m so happy to participate in this weeks hop.
When planning for the hop I had several different ideas. First the watercolor dream I have of one day starting my painting again. But, this is a sewing group and I didn’t think anyone would have been interested in that.
Then there was the Little Red Riding Hood cross stitch project I could do. Problem is I’m not a fast stitcher. I wouldn’t have been anywhere close to being finished. That brings to mind another dream. Starting projects I can finish. Seriously, who am I kidding? Being a finisher is a Fairy Tale.
So I decided I would use my embroidery machine to start a project that would give me finished blocks to show and I could just decide how to finish it later.
This post is late getting up. I meant this to post at the beginning of January. Better late than never I guess.
I feel like my blog and project containers are nothing more than a wasteland of unfinished projects. So a UFO challenge is in order. The problem bigger than the UFO’s is that I have started challenges in the past only to end with failure. But, I am a persistent woman and will always try again.
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Hope your holiday weekend is/was wonderful!
I haven’t gotten to participate in a sew-in for a while. Although it is Thanksgiving weekend I had plenty of time on Friday night.
Till this weekend, I’ve little time to stitch. DIY projects (more about that later) and my sister had a stroke about a week in a half ago. That was a rough and scary time. She’s doing fine now. They have her in rehab. She is having to learn to do the simple things, like write her name. As awful as it sounds, I have faith in God and I know she will overcome!
I so excited to be done with block 1! Honestly, I don’t make pieced blocks often. In the past I’ve tried and I just couldn’t get it right. For that reason, when I do pieced block I choose paper piecing. It’s just less frustrating. But….I must have done enough of those (paper pieced) that now my piecing is getting better. Cause this block turned out so close to good. My points are not all perfect but they are so close that I don’t really care.
