I don’t have a lot of sewing to report. I finished up several projects last week and am ready to start in on new projects.
The Dirty Dozen Number was picked. It’s #3. That is the UFO I need to work on for August. Well if you’ve been reading along with me, you know that I actually have 3 lists that I am working from so…here are my #3 projects.
This isn’t really even very far along. I have the triangles..and I have the fabric.
The finished quilt looks like this…
It’s a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I’m using up a BUNCH of bonus triangle to make this. All I really have is bonus triangles…nothing else is started so I wonder if that even counts as a UFO…but I put it on the list so I need to tackle it…
I pulled it, recounted and oriented myself to the project again. With UFOs, that truly is a big step in winning the battle. Then I started sewing. I wanted machine time and not cutting time-I have the Carver and Gannon today so will cut today while they are here.
For Sunday I simply wanted to make any progress on the project that I could. I started sewing the bonus triangles together for the border.
The picture only shows a couple but I got enough for one side of the border together. YAHOO. Progress is GOOD.
Remember I have more than one UFO list so I decided to pull another of the UFOs to see if I could make any progress on that.
I have this wool project…I’d love to get this done. I have the frame for it already..I just need to finish the inside.
It was project the #3 on my 2nd Dirty Dozen list. I’ve wanted to do this for forever and it’s happening.
Here it is all pulled out.
I got out my wool…I think that’s always what has prevented me in the past….my wool was a mess. BUT, remember I cleaned the sewing room. The wool is managed now so it wasn’t the chore it previously was.
In the past I’ve collected wool for the sheep.
So I pulled and sorted and found some wool that I liked…but then I ran into this problem. The background fabric needs a good coffee/tea dye. If I don’t, the sheep won’t show up on the project.
So that will happen today while the boys nap. I also found out that I don’t have any green wool for the grass so I went on Etsy and ordered some of that. Progress…although not a lot, is still progress.
My third Dirty Dozen list showed this… Continue reading
