Yep, I am now officially "retired" !!
A wee bit early I know but.........an offer came up I couldn't refuse!!!
So, after a few days away down at the bach at Waihi Beach, I am now catching up with washing/family/blogs, etc.
AND thankfully, I see that others are just like me......UFO's lurking everywhere!!!!
i.e. Un Finished Objects, or quilt tops!!!!! http://filminthefridge.com/ see Taking stock once again.
We chatted at our last Monday Modern meeting about how many things people had on the go at any one time. And of course we all work v. differently - and have different stashes, different budgets, different priorities, etc.
I think in all honesty, I have a v. short attention span!!!
I know I certainly love all the planning, all the sorting out of fabrics, all the sewing....but then once I see the end in sight ...I stop!!!!
Our tastes change over the years, and being part of the Monday Modern group has certainly added a new dimension to my patchwork & quilting. But I do still need to finish a few things first!
Want to see what's in my UFO pile?
There's a few quilts I have made that I too have definitely fallen out- of- love with, but there are others for one reason or another that I will get around to finishing, truely!!!!! Most of these quilts actually only require a bit of "home" machine quilting and then the binding. And these are UFO's not, as I'm sure you understand, WIP's!!! (Works in Progress). (that's another little pile!!!)
Anyway, now I'm "retired" I am going to do my best to cross a few of these from my to-do-list.
Any votes on where to start first?
So.... just a quilt top that needs ...you guessed it.... batting/backing/quilting/binding!!!!
( or maybe those pastel / low volune dresden plates after all?!??!?!!?)
