    weekend adventures

    After a long while, sometimes to long, i am finally getting done some UFO as well as some other blocks that i have signed up for. My DH gave me a deadline of having all my UFO completed by the end of the month before i can buy anymore fabric or start another project. I will post some of the pictures up here on what i have going on. but the list goes as follows:
    1. Finish Mystery train quilt
    2. two block swaps
    3. my nephews thomas the train quilt
    4. Double Irish chain quilt
    5. kool kalidescope
    6. Grinch xmas quilt
    7. Hexagon purse
    8. wolf song quilt

    Nothing like a small task for the month of July. So i have two days off and i have gotten to a late start but one block is done and almost finished with the Mystery quilt yea!!! I am hoping to have more finished before the end of my weekend on monday night. i am happy i have the time and everything else expect for the vacation in the middle of the month has been cleared out to do so!!! Let's get this party started!!!

    If you are enjoying the deadline, than good luck with your sewing. There would have to be a nice prize at the end of UFO's for me to work under a deadline.

    LOL "The hurrier I go the behinder I get." --an old PA German saying.

    I, too, need help focusing/finishing but I have been that way since childhood. We have such wonderful ideas that cannot wait.
