WOW – 3 weeks into the New Year! I hope everyone is enjoying the New Year! I am just now beginning to. We have a new lawn mower and the Termite Treatment is almost complete. A return visit tomorrow to foam the outer wall where Clay found the Termites.
I have one more week to get a quilt quilted. I have selected one that will be possible to get done in a day!! Tomorrow is ‘load the quilt day’ for PHD 2021 goal!
I have made some stride on Stars Around the Garden Medallion! BUT I had to rip out 2 of the stems and re-applique them as they just did not look smooth enough, so if not for that I would be half way through! I need to do 3 flowers and will be on to the 2nd half!
Let’s see! I have started a knitting a dish cloth – I love to knit during the winter time. Right now I am enjoying just doing whatever each day. I am working from my UFO list. Believe me – my list is large enough that I have plenty of items to chose from and never get bored!
Last year I purchased some fabrics to participate in Jen’s 2020 Color Challenge but was not able to participate, so today I am now working on 2020 and 2021’s Color Challenge. More on this one in another post. It is not a difficult project and feels good to make a nice 12” block rather than those 2 inch 9 patch blocks for OMIGOSH!
Speaking 0f OMIGOSH, I have now decided to make a total of 30 blocks. So far I have 14 blocks complete and 8 cut out and ready to sew. This means I only have 8 more blocks to cut out and sew! There will be 5 blocks across and 6 blocks down. Because there is a border (or 2) on the quilt, I am not sure of the final measurements. Looking like a light at the end of the quilting tunnel for me.
OK you might remember I purchased a few Cross Stitch books and all the goodies that go with that hobby! Well, I have not been able to even touch that project, but maybe this next week.
I hope that everyone has a great week. I am looking forward to a 100% quilting time!
