I had thought that I would quit working on UFOs once the mystery started. I changed my mind. Having to post something each Wednesday makes me do “just a little more” than I otherwise would have done so I’m sticking with it. Granted I might not get much done as far as UFO progress as the mystery starts..but who cares. Even if I only get a few blocks sewn on an old UFO each week, that’s still progress. I’ll take forward motion anytime over having a UFO sit in the cabinet languishing.
I had decided that and then Angelia The Eclectic Abuela sent me a photo. It’s her Pfeffernuse quilt finished. WOW. I love it.
Seeing this is exactly what I needed to know I made the right decision on continuing to sew on my UFOs.
So…here’s my progress. All of the brown string blocks are sewn.
Now over the next week my hope is to trim them and get them cut into triangles. That’s a realistic goal.
For Thanksgiving all of our kids will be home. We don’t do anything fancy, a meal and that’s about it. I think Kayla is staying on for some Friday fun. That will be nice.
Kalissa is a Black Friday shopper. Kayla and I aren’t interested in that at all so we volunteered to watch Carver so she could go out and chase the deals. I think in the end, time with Carver is really the best deal.
I’ll be able to squeeze some sewing time or crafting time over the weekend and that will be nice and relaxing which is exactly what I need. I also have it on my list to try to tackle cleaning the basement. As the weather gets colder it’s harder and harder to take the childcare kids outside to burn off some energy. My hope was to clean the basement up and let them burn off some energy down there. We have a cement floor and it’s unfinished so I can take the ride on toys down there and let them play. I thought I would take the sand and water table down there too. It will be nice to keep that mess out of the kitchen.
I’m super excited to have the basement to use but not at all excited about cleaning it up. We kind of made it a bit of a dumping ground. UGH. So that’s my plans for the weekend…
Check up on me here next Wednesday and see if I accomplished any of my goals.
