What a wonderful day I'm having! It's involved lots of sewing and .......NO HOUSEWORK. Not because my house is all clean. Far from it. But I just decided I wasn't going to do anything else today but sew.
So, here's my progress; 36 more Civil War siggie blocks (which of course means 72 more cute little extra blocks), one more Double Wedding Ring circle, and then I wanted to do something different. And strange as it may seem, I found another UFO which I hadn't seen in months. I had put it all together once and didn't like the way it turned out, so I ripped it apart and promptly put it out of my mind. It was 'new' enough to me to be something different to do, and I got it all put back together. How do you like it?
The pattern was to make either a tree skirt or a table cover. Of course, you can see that I set out to do the latter. Now I can't decide... I'm going to set it out and look at it for a few days before I make up my mind. Not too long, though, or it will still be on the UFO list in January.
It seems the more cleaning out I do, the more unfinished projects I find. I have at least 2 that my mother started (crewel embroidery) and, would you believe, 2 that my grandmother started. It's really pretty embroidery on satin with silk thread, ribbons, and textured paint. They're quite lovely, and if I ever get the courage, I may try to finish them. Does it sound like starting too many projects runs in the genes? I have inherited UFOs.
For all my small group of followers, I will soon publish my 20th post, and I have a great giveaway for one of you. I'll tell you more about it later.
