Friday came and went in a blur of “I can’t even remember what I did” except that I did do a fair amount of hand applique and made these blocks for my Jamestown Landing.
This put me over the halfway mark so I’m doing the happy dance! I’d love to get my Jamestown top done before Easy Street starts the day after Thanksgiving but I’m pretty sure that’s a pipe dream. I should have the top done by the end of the year, though, if all goes well.
Speaking of tops, by the way, I had to go on a search for a set of blocks that I had apparently put in a safe place at some point and in the process of searching I got a little scared at the number of UFO’s hanging around in the sewing room. It really is like an alien invasion. I’ve decided after the New Year to take the scary plunge and make a list of them all and try to start working through them. I’m going to have to come up with a policy like “One old finish for every new project” or maybe “Two old finishes for every new project.” That would whittle down the list a bit. There are some nice future quilts hanging out in that room waiting to see the light of day. Speaking of old projects seeing the light of day, I forgot to mention that my quilt came back from Amanda over at Fabric Engineer. It looks great and I can’t wait to get the binding on it and show it to you this week!
So, on Saturday, I had some “mommy jobs” to take care of and when I went up to sew I realized that my sewing room had hit critical mass and I couldn’t do another thing without tackling the chaos. Here’s a picture before I started.
If all goes well, I’ll have a lot to be excited about later today!
