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).

1. No purchase necessary

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.

Thank you ladies for the great welcome.  Karen, your quilts are masterful!!  I'm having trouble squaring up. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks everyone.  Yes, they are machine embroidered.  I did quite a few swaps with the Machine Embroidery Buddies group & this is one of them.  I have another top waiting to be basted from another swap with them plus several more sets of blocks waiting to be put in to tops.

Janet, nice owl quilt

Karen,  congrats on your de-stash adventure with your friend.   I did that last year with a friend and it seems I accumulated some more so I am doing it again.....

Janet, your owls are so cute!  Are they machine embroidered? Appliqued?

I finished my owl wallhanging.  I still need to buy a curtain rod to hang it from, but couldn't wait to show it to everyone so this pic was taken with it laying on the floor.  I made the block with the 2 owls in the center row & the block with the owl wearing overalls in the bottom row.  I'm so happy to have another UFO finished!

Whew, Janet, I'm exhausted for you.  LOL

I'm in the office today - in case some of you don't know, I work for Martingale/That Patchwork Place, a quilting book publisher.  So I work with lots of quilters.  They were thrilled to rummage through my giveaway box.

Pam, I love your Disappearing 9 Patch.  The backing is great too.

Karen, you must have been in the same cleaning mood I have been.  When my daughter & her 2 boys were with us for 2-1/2 yrs I stored a lot of my quilts in my hall closet.  Thank goodness it is pretty good sized.  Well they moved out a few weeks ago so today I finally decided to clean the closet in the room the boys used so I could put my quilts back in there.  Then while going through the hall closet I found lots of draperies that I know I will never use so they are already in a box in the back of my car to be dropped off at the local donation place tomorrow.  I figure if I put them in the car, I would be less apt to change my mind! 

I also worked on a wallhanging made from some blocks I exchanged with the Machine Embroidery Buddies group a couple of years ago.  I hope to have it completely finished & hanging on the wall of my newly redecorated office by the middle of the week.

Whew, now I'm getting ready to put lasagne in the oven & put my feet up for the rest of the night!
