I have managed to complete a couple of UFO's over the past few days. Sadly I have so many that I really don't know which one to work on first!
I was looking for a piece of fabric on the weekend, and low and behold I came across the little strip table runner I had started when? Maybe February or so? I pulled it out and unrolled it and my first thought was - OH THERE'S WHERE ALL MY STRAIGHT PINS ARE! I immediately remembered why it was still in the closet and not on my table. The project went completely fine - until I started to apply the binding on the edges. Yes - well - I am binding challenged, that is for sure a fact! The binding was 1/2 sew on, but it wasn't even and the corners were hideous... I was going to roll it back up and shove it back - further back - in the closet and then I decided I really needed the pins - so why not finish it!
I took it out to my rocking chair in the sun room, along with a pair of scissors and some thread and a needle and I hand-stitched the back of the binding on the the runner - Voila - done!
It's not the best work I have ever done, but it is my first completed quilting project after all! The binding is really hideous, but in finishing the project I was able to see what I had done wrong - so I'll know better for the next one... she says!
Project #2 - was to finish knitting a little Cathy sweater I had been knitting for a friend. It took me all of 20 minutes to finish it - makes me wonder why I had stopped in the first place. Done!
Project #3 - The summer cardi - this has been sitting in a bag hanging on my workroom closet door for a few weeks. I had one more row to work for the body, block, assemble, and do the border... This WILL be finished tonight... after a yearly Vet visit with Molly, dinner, dishes, some laundry and a blow by blow account of Jon's interview this morning with an International Engineering Firm.
Pictures tomorrow of this project completed - I hope!
Well I have an idea...
I want to make a special grad gift for a Special Grad. Of course I am already late - graduation has taken place, but I'm sure I will be forgiven in this case...
I'll run my idea by you tomorrow...
