I’ve been so busy lately I think my head is going to spin clean off my shoulders! Although I can’t tell you at this time just what I’ve been busy doing, but when I do – it’ll be awesome! I’ll let you know in a couple weeks so stay tuned, it’ll be fun.
I have been spending some time in my sewing / quilting room – affectionately known as Wandaland. There are two closets in that room and they each have floor to ceiling shelves. And guess what’s on those shelves – a whole bunch of UFO’s! Un Finished Objects. These are the beginnings of projects either from a class I took or just from a pattern I have.
I seem to be a ‘process’ person. I want to learn a new process, method, or learn to use a new tool, then I’m done. Finish the project? Are you kidding me, there’s too much other stuff to learn. That’s how come I have all these UFO boxes on my shelves.
One time my sister, Janet, overheard me being asked to teach a class on quilt borders. I thought it would be fun and I had some great ideas, but before I could agree to teach the class, my sister pipes up with “Borders? She never gets that far!” Although not entirely true, it’s pretty darn close. Ok, so it takes me awhile to actually get to the borders, but I do finish quilts.
The last few weeks I’ve been going through those closets and all those boxes. Wow – I don’t even remember some of those classes or projects, but here are a few…there are two flannel quilts with the squares already cut and ready to be sewn together, a Christmas quilt with the pieced blocks ready to be sewn into the quilt top, two appliqué blocks (each 36” square) of a four-block quilt and several appliqué pieces cut out for the next block, a bomber jacket, a collection of 1930’s fabrics, and the list goes on and on. Wouldn’t it be nice to just pick a box and complete one of those projects? I just may have to do that.
I’ll post the next couple weeks of the 52 Week Challenge. I’m behind in posting but I’ll do my best to catch up. And stay tuned for that big surprise!
