UFO Challenge

With the retreat I was able to get some sewing done…but not too much.  We had to teach two of the days and had to duck out early on Saturday for Karl’s going away party on Saturday so out sewing time was limited but that’s okay.  We had so much fun that missing sewing time was worth it for sure.

I did not get much UFO sewing done at all….but I promised myself that I HAD to get some done…even if it was only a little bit.  So here’s what I have to show.

Fair-and-Square-5

Last week I had 48 of the 144 I needed done.  This week I added 20 more putting me at 68.  I’m getting close to half way done with them.  YAHOO!!  These are the mindless sewing that my brain is desperately in need of and that’s one of the reasons I love making any quilt with strings.

I don’t expect to have much done coming up.  We have a picnic on Saturday and one on Sunday too plus I’m still trying to catch up around here from the retreat.  Sometimes playing catch up is hard.  On top of that…I have baby quilts to make.  So far I have three that have either just had babies or are ready to pop any minute.    If one is a girl I have a quilt.  The other two…I have to make…and if it’s not a little girl.  I’ll need to make yet another one!  Oh my.  That’s all okay though.  I love making baby quilts….and after they are made I need to start on wedding quilts.  I have two more to be done this year!

Happily I know what the quilts are going to be…I just have to get to them.  Those baby quilts are going to be first priority if  when I get to a machine.

You can find me back here next week. I can’t guarantee a lot of progress but there will be some.
