What this group is about

I don’t know about you, but I have too many things started. Join me in my quest to get finish what I’ve started. The deal is, for every 2 projects I finish, I get to reward myself by starting something new. You can make your own rules, or give the group ideas for new rules as we go. I think it’ll be fun to ask this group for advice on what project to wrap up next, show my progress with photo’s, get motivation from each other when I want to break my own agreement (trust me, I am weak willed when it comes to new projects).

TUFO - means Tuesday UFO - those of us interested try to make a small dent in whatever UFO we are working on. Tuesday is simply the day the Connecting Threads gals get together to sew and craft...you can make it any day you like, but we got a kick out of the title. Once in awhile we can't make it on Tuesday so we move it to Wednesday - yup WUFO. Report here what you are planning to work on, then the next day, let us all know how you did. Nothing is required, it's just for fun.

Thanks Elizabeth.  Here is a pic of the label that will go on the back.

Very nice, Janet.  I  have made a few quilting projects in memory of my mother also.

About 8 years ago I demo'd how to do "y" seams at a quilt guild meeting.  I made 4 blocks, but then that project was put away & basically forgotten about.  A few weeks ago I ran across it while looking for something else & decided it was long past time to do something with them.  My mom was the youngest of 7 sisters so I decided to make 3 more blocks & then set them in a setting similar to the "7 Sisters" layout.  Her 1st name was Iva so I'm going to call it "Iva and Her Sisters".

Thank you, Judy!

I'm still working on my QAYG String Quilt.  It has lots of leftover CT fabric strings from some of the earliest collections.  Many memories of other projects.

Sherri -  Now that summer is ending we need to dig in!

Elizabeth - I love your bee quilt. I have been really attracted to all of the bee themed projects but haven't done any thing with them. You did a nice job!

Sherri,  love your attitude of just shutting the door of your studio and hang a sign,  "closed for renovation".

Fall is in the air.  I have been away from my sewing for seems like forever. Had some issues that  took my sewing machine on a little retreat,  for some repair work.  And even though I have a spare,  I just did not feel like navigating through the mess in my sewing space.  I guess this is a recurring problem for many of us.  I don't need a shovel just yet, but it is getting there.   So poked through the UFO pile again and hoping to resume work on some of these projects.   I have so many in progress,  but with my machine out of commission  I just shut the door and stayed out of here for quite a few weeks.  But now,  I think I am about ready to fire up the Janome again.  I do have one project all sandwiched and ready to go... So that will probably be my first project. Then I think it is time to get the blue and white snowman quilt out and finish up the last few blocks and complete the top.  I just have to find which box I put it into.  It's been raining here for three days,  and this morning I see sunshine.  that always improves my mood.   I dressed in sweats but I see them coming off in a few hours as the temps begin to rise.  We are heading to the lake on Wednesday for a few days.  With a multitude of commitments the past couple of weeks, and next week, we have not been able to get up there since Labor Day weekend.  And summer is drawing to a close so these warm fall days are at a minimum.
