Manic Monday....

I didn't get to all that I wanted this past week.  The thought was with having the kids home for Thanksgiving break, I would get some quality sewing time.  Okay, I forgot what a teenager and a two year old can be like. 

Here is my list from last week.....

*Finish 3 blocks from my 4 BOM's    Only 1 block done.
*Finish cutting sashing for wedding present 
*Sew down petals on Rainbow Fizz quilt top
*Cut remaining 2 yds of fabric for swap
*Finish sewing rows for Spastic quilt top     Finished!!

In addition I spent about 30 mins. cleaning.  This needs to be done on a more regular basis.

This coming week...

*Work on wedding quilt
*Cut swap charms - due this week!
*Pillow cases for Christmas
*Rainbow Fizz
*More cleaning/organizing

This week is turning out to be pretty busy, hopefully this list will help me to prioritize my time.

Manic Monday List......

With my huge UFO list on my mind, I am really trying to cut it down to something more managable.  I like to start new projects, so I need to finish some.  This week I intend to work on the following:

*Finish 3 blocks from my 4 BOM's
*Finish cutting sashing for wedding present
*Sew down petals on Rainbow Fizz quilt top
*Cut remaining 2 yds of fabric for swap
*Finish sewing rows for Spastic quilt top

These may not get done for Friday Finish, but hopefully I will get them done before next week's list gets created.

Friday Finish....

This week I have 3 finishes and 1 from last week.  I couldn't get my camera to work.  The first finish is a baby quilt I had in the works for a while now. 

Before we left on our cruise, I made a UFO list, man was that a scary thing.  26!!!!  Three of them are BOM.  So my other finishes are blocks from two out of the three. 

I have not worked with Batiks before and this BOM is from a local quilt store and all the blocks are different Batiks.  I am trying to learn to like them.

These other two blocks are from the HST BOM from In Color Order.  The print fabric is from Connecting Threads Merry Mini's line from last year. ( A year ago when I started reading Amanda Jean's blog, I checked out the thread she raved about and she was right, their thread and fabric is great.)

Making my huge list of UFO's has made me want to get that list shortened so I can start some new projects.  Who am I kidding, I am sure I will start something new.
