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
Well, it’s that time to make some new goals. Past history has taught me that I’m not good at keeping New Years goals. But, maybe that is the point of making them. To learn something each year about ourselves that helps us grow. So this year I’m going to focus on each one-one at a time. That’s why I’m going to join Judy from Patchwork Times for her 2019 UFO Challenge. I don’t have to look at my list as a whole but one project at a time.
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.
I spent some time last night working on a project that I had started earlier but haven’t shown you yet. It’s a pattern that came out of Just Cross Stitch magazine, the March/April 2015 issue.
The pattern is named Teacup Herbs by Sharon Pope. There are four in the series. March/April’s issue had two, Dill and Thyme.
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.
I spent most of the night cutting the pieces for the block of the Honey Bee Lane BOM that I’m getting behind on. It’s a sweet BOM that my local quilt shop is doing.
Last Friday night I spent some time continuing work on Winter Queen. Although I haven’t blogged in a while, I have stitched, mostly on Winter Queen. I’ve made some progress and can now begin to see the end in sight.
