Makin' A List, Checkin' It Twice


Oops, wrong holiday! The list is, of course, of those pesky UFOs! I thought about posting photos of all those projects staring angrily at me in my sewing room. I thought about just closing the door to the sewing room. I thought about not thinking about it!!!! Since I have gotten back from vacation, I have had a hard time getting back in the groove. I did get four more Chocolates and Cherries string blocks made yesterday. But here's what I DIDN'T get done (some of the UFOs): Birds of a Feather (need to purchase inner border fabric), Snowball Teal (need to purchase border fabric), Jo's Scrappy Stars (need to cut joining squares and stitch top together), Scrapbag Explosion (need to pin baste and quilt), Steiff Bear Quilts in Force quilt (need to finish machine quilting), Spin (need to finish machine quilting), and Calendar Quilt (need to find sashing fabric in my stash, then stitch rows coin-style). And that's just the ones I can think of off the top of my head!!! Tomorrow is my turn to host the mini-group so today will be for cleaning and baking a decadent dessert. Not much sewing will get done again.

Happy Valentine's Day! Hey Listen, One of these days... you've got to go to this store.... I think it's in your "neck of the woods". www.curioussofa.com. They had an article in country living. I always read about places, you need to be my eyes and check it out...p.s.-- bring your camera....

Have a wonderful Valentine's day...can't wait to hear about your dessert for your group.

Gail said...

hey, I want a decadent dessert too! Happy Valentine's day (and the UFOs will still be there tomorrow, too bad they never run away from home!)

Don't stress -- they will all wait patiently for you. Have a happy Valentine's Day.

those ufos can wait...and wait...no sense in anyone feeling angry or upset-hope your day with your quilty group is smashing.

Glad you enjoyed our desert. I don't know why they would tell you that you wouldn't likely see a roadrunner. We see them all the time in both Arizona and New Mexico.

That's a very cute little Valentine pic, thanks for sharing it!

There are always and will always be more quilts to make, and quilts to finish. Relax. Breathe. What I have found works for me is to not worry about all of them. Just pick one - whatever calls to me at the moment, whatever is closest - and give it a few minutes to make some progress. Any progress is forard progress.
