WOW…yesterday was CRAZY with the Yard Sale. I will definitely to that again if Bonnie hosts it. It was so fun and I love the little bit more room in my sewing room. There are a couple things left for sale, you can see them here.
Now to my stash report. This week I have a finished project to report…YA-HOO!! I finished my Orca Bay mystery quilt. I had a Yard Sale here yesterday and that moved out some quilting merchandise from that but I am not even counting that in my stash report.
As I was getting ready for the yard sale, I dug around and pulled out my #1 UFO quilt and was SAD…so SAD. I hate this project and don’t want to do it. UGH!
I am afraid if I skip this UFO’s I won’t hang in there and finish more. I want these UFO’s done but I do not want to work on this one.
This is something I started about four years ago. I had a new idea and wanted to try it. Well I tried it. I saw that it will work so I don’t want to finish it. My daughter Kayla did some math and worked out a design for them…
Well you caught me…I’ll be honest. The hard part is next and I don’t want to do it….(Please don’t make me!!) I have to applique these fans to fabric. I have never done it before. I am nervous about getting them to lay straight. UGH!! I want to just applique them down by machine but hate every stitch on my machine except the straight stitch (using stitches other than the straight stitch is putzy work to me). UGH…I really don’t want to do this.
Then after I get the blocks appliqued down I have to cut center circles and applique them in place. I’ve never figured out how to get the edges smooth to applique. (If you are a regular blog reader you know I have applique fear) Part of me is screaming try it you chicken….the other is saying UGH!!
Oh what’s a girl to do….(a little pep talk from all of you would be appropriate right now) UGH…in all honesty I just don’t love this project anymore. When does a UFO stay a UFO? Do I make myself do this or give up? I feel like if I do get the quilt top finished, I’ll set it into another pile of quilt tops that need to be quilted and the it will never get quilted….ugh, ugh…UGH!
While you ponder on that…here’s my stash report….UPDATE: I wrote this draft of my stash report on Friday as I was getting ready for the Yard Sale. I was SO tempted to put these fans on the Yard Sale and sell them. Then I thought no….then I thought yes…then no…Then I decided let fate handle it. If they sold I wouldn’t make it…if they didn’t sell I would. I am happy to report they SOLD!!!! I no longer have to worry about this UFO. I am so relieved. It’s gone and I don’t have to worry about. I HIGHLY recommend you going through your UFO pile. If you hate it. SELL it!
