Greeting from South Texas where it almost feels like Fall, at least for yesterday and today! I have now recovered from the 11 days of Hell from the Meniere’s Testing on 6 October.
I am going to update my goals for the weekend and through the end of December 2020 as I will not be sorry to see this year go into the history books.
First, I will not be making the 3030 quilt. If I start a quilt and have problems with the first block, even if I have followed all instructions 100%, I am done. I have decided to make a 1930’s Wedding Ring quilt with the fabrics I purchased. This will kill 2 birds with one stone as one of my 2020 goals was to make a Wedding Ring quilt! I am not sure when I will start it, maybe after I catch up on my UFOs.
Yesterday while trying to find my brain I had a great FaceTime visit with Kathy and a great phone calls with Jaydee and Lori. They are wonderful caring friends and it is great to visit with other quilters either on FaceTime or a great phone call.
After the visits I sat down and spent time relaxing and looking through all the beautiful projects that I want to make in the future and to prioritize them for 2021, which is coming sooner than later. Additionally, I want to get back to where quilting is fun and not stressful. I have a book for 2020 that listed all the projects/UFOs that I wanted to complete this year. I really had to smile looking at it – I think I can just put December 2021 on that puppy.
In the meantime, I will be working on my UFO List left over from 2019/2020. They really need my attention and it would be great to finish them.
- Celebrating Mary Brown – Applique (Produce 1 block a month starting in November)
- Stonefields – Applique – Finish preparing the remaining Sections.
- OMIGOSH – Continue making blocks – hope to finish the quilt in 2021
- Stars Around the Garden – Applique the Center Medallion. Possible finish in 2020.
- A Blue and Beige Reproduction quilt (pattern from my EQ8)
- Dresden Plates (need to cut blocks and applique the plates to them)
- Finish the last block for Sweet Stitches and put the blocks together
- Work on an Embroidery project from The Art of Home Club called Happy Little Things. I joined this Club a year ago and have not had time to even participate, much less read about all the happenings in the Club. I rejoined and am hoping that things are now on the road to be better.
I am praying that I will have the energy to load and quilt one quilt a week on the Longarm. I am so behind on my quilting as you can see on the list that I made on 22 December 2019 and there are many more tops to quilt other than the list below.
- Button Hole Stitched Leaves 2002
- Aspen Gold – 2007
- Linda Ballards Purple and Beige Quilt – 2008
- Angela’s BOM – 2012
- Christmas Quilt – 2004 – First pieced quilt I made
- Rosemary Young’s BOM – 2015
- Capital T – 2019
For my To-Do-Tuesday Linky Party between now and the end of the day Monday (want to get back on a weekly goal track) here are the 3 things I hope to work on.
- Complete the Sunflower Block for Mary Brown
- Begin preparing the remaining blocks for Stonefields
- Complete Block 11 (October) for Sweet Stitches
Have a wonderful week and enjoy stitching!
