First 2019 Finish
My first 2019 finish...ta da...Sweet Tooth.
Okay...sooooo maybe 90% of it was finished in 2018 and I only need to hand sew some of the binding in 2019, it is officially finished and I'm counting it. 😉
I'm not one to make resolutions or to set new year's goals. I normally like to spend January giving my sewing room a good cleaning, organize a bit, sort my scraps into various bins and make a list of my UFO's and how much progress or what more needs to be done. 2019's list is a very long list. Remember the ridiculous piles I talked about here, here and here? Well it is even worse now. I have 23 quilt tops that need to be quilted...some, okay more than some, were in the original ridiculous pile. There are 8 quilts that are cut out and partially pieced. I've also added a list of hand stitching projects - 2 wool and 3 embroidery projects that need to be finished.
Unfortunately after I made the list I had a squirrel moment...
Kathleen Tracy released the first clue of her newest Facebook mystery mini quilt. This will be my first time participating in one of her mystery's.
And while I was sorting and cleaning out my scraps I had another squirrel moment...
I cut out strips to make the first quilt in Kim Diehl's Simple Whatnots book - Plain Folk.
I actually made a little bit of a dent in my in one of the smaller scrap bins.
Bella was shocked by this also.
