How did we get to the middle of March already?? I know I must have missed some days, even weeks somewhere along the way! Oh well.... guess I have to work with what time I have, right?
I speak of time as it is now 3 1/2 months to the end of June and yes that is my deadline to have finished 50 UFO's. And will I make it?? "Time" will tell. I was at 18 in December and have since did more, but I haven't added them to my list. Guessing I will have to do that soon before I forget what they are...now wouldn't that be a bummer. To miss one or two in the count and think I fall short of my goal if I did forget them! Yikes!! Something for this weekends "To-Do" list.
With my quilt guild having a UFO challenge, I have been lucky to complete at least 4 each month - Yeaaaa me! But this month I may not get them all done. I got a nasty flu/cold on the 11th and it is hanging on tight. But I'm still going to try!!
Another project was to make a quilt top for my grand-daughter's school for a fund raiser. And yes I did it!! I was only doing a few blocks a day and then I decided it was time to get this really rolling and gone. See, I needed 80 - 10 1/2" log cabin blocks before borders were added. So on March 4th, I sat down at my sewing machine and didn't stop until 11pm that evening. I had done 43 log cabin blocks that day and put the borders on, but I was done! Yeahhhh!! Let me know if you would like tickets on this quilt! It will be off the long arm quilter in about a week.
Done? Well yes for that project I am. Notice I said "that project"? And yes for every one project completed there is always another that moves into the top spot for my time. Now I am designing another quilt for the Relay for Life to be held here in June. This one I will be doing all the sewing & quilting so it is going to be a very tight schedule until this one is done. Time for when I want this one done.... April 1st!! Tickets are to be sold and it is hard to sell tickets on something you haven't seen, but it is going to be a very wonderful quilt, if I do say so myself. Made from my scraps (I have loads of them!!) and only the center of the quilt is from material I had to purchase, I have been thinking of the representation of all the scrap strips and I finally thought of it as I was cutting 704 - 1 3/4" x 5 1/2" pieces. So keep an eye out here - I will keep you updated on the progress on this one when I get feeling better.
Seeing time is of the essence, I will see if I can make it the sewing machine today for a moment or two. You all take care of yourselves and others when you can. :-)
