Life has been challenging my UFO progress. But I do have some progress to share…and some “life” to share. Today’s the first day back to school here!! New things are happening here. I’m sending two off today…three more after Labor Day and inviting in two more. It’s going to be interesting. I’ll write more about that all on another day…back to today’s topic, UFO quilting.
You can see at the last count I had 98. I’ve been sewing on these most every morning trying to get them finished up. Then towards the end of last week I decided to trim them up and see where I was at. Neighbor Girl happened to be over. I could tell she needed to talk. I pulled out the trimmed pieces and asked if she wanted to help de-paper them over nap time. She did and the distraction of de-papering opened the flood gates and she told me what has been happening lately. I can’t say a lot more than that..just know that things have gotten tougher for her.
It’s amazing how doing a mindless activity like de-papering is soothing. It sure was for her. I miss the days of helping my mother in law clean green beans or peel apples. I loved that time. In fact, I think that’s some of the things relationships are missing…that mindless time of working together with a common goal with no thought to speed.
Anyway…We ended up with 46 more.
I had Neighbor Girl do the math and…. yes indeed, we met our goal of having 144 triangles. That means I am ready to start attaching these to blocks. Yahoo!!
You can find me here next week. I’ll still be plugging away on the blocks. I’m hoping to have at least half of them together. It won’t be much progress but it will be in a forward direction!!
