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.

Hi Janet,

We haven't done the major renos ourselves.  Neither of us has the knowledge.  Hubby used to do painting, wallpapering etc. years ago and he still does so much around our home with the everyday chores.  He is 88 and keeps busy.  We had the sewing room and den renoed by a man who has a reno company and does a lot of work in our neighbourhood.  The 2 bathrooms were designed and renoed by another company which has given us good service.  Between Hubby and the handy people we rely on, I get time for my quilting projects.

Sherri, I love your tulip and stars quilt.  Your scraps are so pretty!  I would send out quilts to a LAQ if I didn't enjoy machine quilting.  I do free motion or walking foot quilting depending on what is warranted.  I haven't hand quilted for years.

Trying to get back to my commitment to finishing up some of my stack of UFO's  most of course just need quilting. MY least favorite part of process.  I make a lot of small kid and baby sized quilts. The best thing about them is that I can quilt them quickly.   But I have a huge kind size that will be going to the long arm quilter as soon as the backing fabric arrives.   That will be two off of the pile.  But have to get back to piecing.  I love piecing up scrappy quilts... But I should not piece anymore until I finish the one's waiting in line.

Elizabeth, this kitchen is definitely going to be the last major reno we do ourselves!  My husband is going to be 69 in July plus he has health issues so it is getting harder & harder for him to do this stuff.  I don't want him just sitting around watching mindless tv either so I still need to find small chores for him to do.

Thank you, Karen.  I do use up my scraps and I throw very little out.  It's like a game!

Our kitchen is the only place we have not done much change.  But I think we may not bother because of our age.  Our last reno was the 2nd bathroom and I am still loving it.  Janet, enjoy your new kitchen!  Thank you, too, for your kind comments on my latest UFO completion.

Very pretty quilt Elizabeth.  Great back too.

I still have not added the borders to my hst quilt, but hope to do that soon.  We have been redoing our kitchen & it keeps interrupting my quilting.  I'm very happy with it so in the long run it will be worth it.

Thank you Vilma.  Elizabeth, I LOVE your quilt!  And very clever piecing of the back.  Bet you used up lot's of scraps on that!

Karen, glad you are getting better.  Sometimes it takes a while to get back into the groove.  The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.... last night my husband said I must be teaching a class in my dream since I said about new material.  Duh?

Janet, I'd say give yourself a giant pat on the back for piecing 360 Half Square Triangles together!!!!
