Why is it when I have a pile
(And I mean a PILE!!)
of quilts and projects in progress
I am ITCHING to start something new?
Do I feel the need to add to my stacks of quilts
waiting for machine quilting?
Do I really need another pile of fabrics
stacked in my Hidey Hole somewhere,
waiting to be cut or put away?
Do I need more bags/baskets/bins
with unfinished projects sitting around in here?
Unfortunately, once I get an idea in my head,
it is a fight not to start working on it right away.
NOT this time!
I am not starting anything new until
I have quilted three quilts
and finished a couple of little projects.
Things usually get finished around here,
but lately... not so much.
Here is one project I started a while back
and am going to finish soon.
This is Bucilla felt stocking kit.
I have made a number of these and have a
number of kits still unopened.
This one was started a few months ago
and put into a basket where it sat.
I love the palm trees on this stocking.
The curved edges of the fronds are not stitched down,
giving it a 3-D look.
I don't know how old this kit is and I can't remember
where I bought it.
It will be finished SOON!
Quilt #1 being quilted.
I have come to realize that I really
do not enjoy machine quilting.
My quilting is not wonderful
and I know it won't improve without practice,
(and I'd rather start something new then practice!)
hopefully this quilt will be finished by early next week.
I did finish a sock this week.
This is for a child, size 2-3.
Unfortunatley I lost the label for this yarn
and don't remember what it is.
I Love the colors and the softness!
These will be finished soon, as well.
Last week I ordered this new little ruler from
It's a Sock Ruler!
The curved end fits right into the toe or heel,
so I am now getting an accurate measurement
instead of wondering if I pulled the sock
or have the measuring tape in the right place, etc.
Hopefully I will be back with some
(And then can show you the start of something new!!)
Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are working
on this week.
Have a great Friday
