Well we are all settled in…and we now have actual food in our fridge..besides oranges, that is!!
Hubby took this picture…his subtle way of saying, I think we need FOOD…(he could have, at the very least, tidied up the fridge a bit before snapping this pic!! Sheesh!)
Orange juice anyone??
First thing yesterday it was a trip to WalMart…yes, they sell food! Hubby gets to eat and I came away with two very cute lace tops!
With the fridge full, I took inventory…of my sewing!! Now we are talking!!…How much stitching did I get done on the five day trip down to Desert Hot Springs?
My goal this year was to finish UFOs…you know, out with the old before starting on something new!
So let’s have a look…
I found THIS five or SIX year old hexagon UFO in a tote shoved way in the back of a closet…this one is getting done come HE**(…double hockey sticks)…or high waters! I needed ten more hexagons to complete the quilt…that is ONLY TWO per day!
So I put on an audiobook…
….and got ‘er done! Two a day…I did NOT leave the truck until it got done!! haha
Here they are all laid out…It will make a cute girl’s quilt…(I wonder WHY I wanted to make this quilt??)
The fabric is called ‘Nature’s Chorus’…you may remember it from years ago…:) Now I just need to hand applique these ten blocks down and call it a day…FINALLY!!
I finished off this pillow top…I may pick out the girl’s face…she’s kind of scary looking!
Yikes…didn’t notice that nose…need to give him a nose job…need to snip that thread!!
You may remember this FREE project from Scrap, Quilt and Stitch Blog…way back…
I used the Clover White pen to mark the snowflakes…it wasn’t great but better than anything else that I brought with me!! A sliver of soap is what I NEEDED!! Try marking snowflakes while driving on a bumpy road! Yikes!
SEW this is where I was at as we entered THE SANDS! The good news is… FOUR UFO’s ‘almost’ done!! The BAD news is I have several UFO totes waiting in the wings! I think I need a trip to JoAnn’s to spur me on…
Have a terrific Tuesday and Thanks for stopping by!~P
