I need something to get me kick started on catching up on UFOs and current projects, so I am going to do the OMG Weekly Goal! I had designated November OMG to complete or catch up on 3 projects. Celebrating Mary Brown (applique), Sweet Stitches (embroidery), and finish 24 blocks for Alexander Bean Pot quilt! Current progress is:
1. Celebrating Mary Brown. Corner Blocks Top and Bottom
Order additional fabrics – done
Wash, Iron, and Organize all fabric – done
Prepare 16 blocks for applique – done
Complete 8 blocks – Only 2 completed
Complete Block 7 – done
Block 8 – Almost done – 10.5 leaves and 3 Cherries to do!
3. Alexander Bean Pot
Cut out 24 additional blocks to have a total of 64 blocks – done
Sew 24 blocks – Only 14 left to sew – I had originally made 4 blocks of each colorway, then when I picked up the project again I only made 2 of each colorway. Decision made to make the 24 blocks to have 4 blocks of each colorway (make sense – LOL).
The blocks are 4 1/2″ finished – the pesky 2″ Square in a Square corners can be tricky! So it takes a little more time to sew the blocks – about an hour or so to make 2 blocks. This does not count the time to cut them out! Just sewing time.
I am hoping that documenting my goals for each week will help challenge me to make the most of the time I do have to work on projects. It is the Unforeseen Requirements that drive me nuts – Interruptions!
Have a great day and will see how I do by Saturday!
