I have been playing in my sewing room, knitting and binge watching TV this week. I actually did some yoga and took a couple of walks, as well.
One of my projects this week, was to sort through some of my UFO sewing projects to decide what to do with them. I watched a video awhile ago on dealing with your UFO's by Just Get It Done quilts. So I am using her method to sort things.
I actually let go of two projects that I realized I no longer liked. Once I realized I didn't like them, it was easy to let them go. It was very liberating.
I also found two projects that I can finish easily if I make the project smaller. One was a twelve block embroidered quilt. I realized that I could make it six blocks and have a nice little wall hanging. Five of those six blocks are done, and the sixth needs only a small amount of effort to finish.
The second one was a tablerunner, that I had seriously over reached on. I had planned to make it about 12 feet long. In looking at it, I realize that I didn't buy enough fabric and the sections took much longer that I had anticipated. This morning, I decided to put it to the top of the pile, and get it finished (in a much smaller size).
This is the Christmas side. It is quilt as you go, and strip pieced. This is the one end completed.
This is the other end, still in need of a triangle, and piecing.
This is the everyday side. If I were starting this now, I would use a lot more contrast in my fabric. However, I will finish the last triangle, put the binding on, and call it done.
My short term goal is one UFO for every new project I finish. When I finish this, I get to start a new project. I have a pair of socks nearly done, so I will have to choose a knitting UFO to finish next.
My amaryllis are looking great, and brightening up my days.
We have a house guest, just now.
He is a friend's cat. She is trying to get home, but in the mean time, this guy is hanging with us. I have a serious soft spot for ginger boys.
