From now until Bonnie Hunter’s new book comes out in September you’ll find me right here on Wednesdays sharing my progress on a UFO (unfinished project). My hope is to get some finished so I won’t feel guilty sewing on new projects from her new book. It’s not to late to join in the fun. You can find my first post about it here. You can see my listing of all my Bonnie Hunter UFOs here.
I have been really busy lately…sewing has fallen aside a bit. I’ve been working on other things instead…and been going to auctions, catching up on paperwork and the like. I’ve stepped up a bit and even been trying to walk Ruby a little bit more. Most of last week I got my 10,000 steps in. Sadly though, my foot started acting up again.
Anyway…there’s not a lot to report of what I’ve gotten done in the UFO department. Between all of the above mentioned things and me still sewing in a scattered fashion, not concentrating on one project, there’s not a lot to report except for this…
Yep, I’m working on Texas Braid now. You can find it in Bonnie Hunter’s Book Adventures with Leaders and Enders.
Last time you saw it I was this far…
I also have a BIG batch of red squares sewn to neutral pieces. They need to ironed, but it’s progress.
This is going pretty well. I’m actually liking the process of sewing this. It’s unusual as there are not blocks but rows instead. I keep thinking once I get to the end of the rows adding pieces isn’t going to be as fun as the strip will get heavier and heavier making it more awkward to manipulate.
I do have a back pieced for Rick Rack Nines. I had hoped to have that on the frame but alas…maybe this week.
Stop back next week. I’m hoping with an extra day over the weekend to work on things I might get over the hump and actually get something finished!
Kelli had a finish…check out her Fair and Square quilt here.
