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.

My, my, you've all been busy!  I finally had to switch browsers so I could see your images - lovely!

I just moved last week....in with my mom!  The move was from the suburbs of Seattle, WA to a very small town outside of Salem, Oregon.  We are sharing her large sewing room but I haven't unpacked my stuff yet.  I figured that will be my reward for unpacking all of the other household stuff first.  I can't wait to get sewing!  I'm still unemployed (since January!) with no real leads yet.  And now that I'm in a smaller town, I'm even more limited unless companies consider remote.  Many do, now, since covid has forced them to try it.  Crossing my fingers.

Very pretty quilts Sherri.  I too have been looking around my sewing room and thinking of purging.  Easier said than done though.

And this little scrappy receiving blanket

After all day in the sewing room,  cleaning and purging yesterday.  I found my camera... Also found my grandmother's sewing basket, That is over 100 years old.   I labeled it so my kids don't throw it away after I;m gone. That is one reason I purged a lot of stuff in there yesterday. Trying to save my kids the daunting task of going through all of the books and magazines in that room.  Who am I kidding..They would just bring in a dumpster....Anyway I was able to photo the UFO's I have finished in the last couple of months.

A few weeks ago I decided to go through some needlework kits I had stored in my office & move them to my sewing room.  I ran across this kit for a cute little 18" square quilt I apparently had purchased from Connecting Threads.  Can't remember doing that as I rarely buy kits, but since tulips are my favorite flower, I must have decided I had to have this.  I finished the binding today while sitting at a car dealership getting the oil changed on my car.  I'm very pleased with it.  I decided it would be perfect for the center of my kitchen table surrounded by my Jim Shore kitties.

p.s. My computer is not letting me see pics for some reason, so I can't comment on your pretties.

Good morning from Oregon! I'm visiting my parents - first outing since early March! I spent March and April sewing masks, then May I started and nearly finished a baby quilt (baby is due ANY DAY!). I'm binding it here at my parents so I can ship it this week.

I'm near the capital of Oregon - Salem - and there was even looting and violence there. Portland has an 8pm curfew that was broken last night by a peaceful march. Only a few baddies were there causing trouble.

I hope you are all fairing well during lock down and enjoy peeking out as we slowly get released.
