Three things to be happy about:
(1) straight teeth
(3) a foosball match
Well, I love Christmas and I don't celebrate Festivus, but I thought it would be a fun name for this post. Throughout the year I started things that for one reason or another I didn't finish; I don't mean UFO's, that's a whole different category!
So, this is my Festivus list, or "things that I dropped like a hot tater."
Seemed easy to do and it really is, but that daily block became a group of weekly blocks, then there were no blocks at all, doh! After I made 35 blocks I discovered I wasn't sure I liked how they all looked together and I dropped that idea! I'll make one more then set them in a quilt with sashing in between.
Sounded like a good idea and the single blocks looked great... but when I placed several of them together on my design wall - yuck! Not my idea of an attractive quilt. If you stared at it too long it'd probably knock you down!
I could take the ones I did and set them with some kind of sashing (w-i-d-e sashing!) I suppose, but I'll not be making any more of these rascals!
This actually should be considered a UFO because I can finish it by simply making two more blocks and setting them in a gigantic four-patch. The blocks are 16" square so they'd make a nice wall hanging. At this point I can't remember why I dropped this one - UFO!
And last but not least - my stash report! Where did that go? Well, I found it tedious to try and figure out how much fabric I was using every week. I stopped my wild fabric buying several months ago, I don't even look at the emails from Hancocks of Paducah or Thousands of Bolts or eQuilter (why haven't I dropped off those mailing lists??) and I think I've bought less than two dozen yards this year, so maybe the list did have some effect! How much fabric did I use this year? I have no idea but I know I used some, so that's a good thing! So that's my story and I'm sticking with it!
If you had a quilting Festivus list, what would be on it?? I'd love to hear your hidden secrets! Have a great Friday - sew forth and sew on til later!
