I found a forgotten UFO when I started making the Friendship bags. Actually, it was a tote bag I started for myself a couple of years ago. I got the panels made and quilted, and then quit. Completing it today only took about an hour. Why do I do that? When just a little more work would have completed it, why did I put it away and forget it? Does anyone else do this kind of thing? I know the original pattern had braided handles; maybe that's what stopped me. I know that's what originally attracted me to the pattern, but I can't find it anyway. So now I have this nice new bag, and I love it, and it's no longer a UFO.
So let me tell you about the stupid thing I did today. I've been slowly making Dear Jane blocks, 1 or 2 at a time. As of this morning I had 13 completed. After finishing my tote and running a couple of errands, I thought I'd make 1 or 2 for today. Each day I write down what I make and the color to put into a Word document to help me keep track, and so far I've used the same piece of paper to write them down. I put the first one in, K3 blue and brown, and then the second, C3. I had already made that block. Can you believe that after making only 13 I couldn't remember that I'd already made that one? Not only that, but since I have used the same piece of paper, there it was written in front of my face. So it's not just my memory, but my eyes as well. By the way, I like the color of the first one better than the second.

Welcome to my blog. As you can see from my WIP list, my interests are varied, but unfortunately, keep me sitting still to complete them. I am retired, and enjoying all the freedom it brings. My hubby and I enjoy travel, especially cruises, and you can count on seeing pictures of our travels here on occasion. So, I hope you enjoy what I put here, as much as I enjoy my visits to your blog.
