    First UFO finished

    Now that I've tidied the place where I sew, I've had a bit of a play with Saffy (my Sapphire 875Q) and have finished the first of dozens of UFOs.

    Now, it's not the most professional of quilts, and it's not the best I could do, but I'm little Miss Slapdash, and I just wanted to say I'd finished something. It started as a crib quilt, but it's really not very good so it might end up as a cat blanket lol.

    As for the machine - I'm loving it. I'm sure I will learn a lot with it.

    This just needs to be quilted. I'm doing this by hand so it's not being heavily quilted - I must be into about year 10 of this one.

    And I need to finish piecing this (from Judy Martin's log cabin book) - into about year 4. I'm hoping this will be the next one I get stuck into

    Keep up the good work. They are great, I love them all. Finishing the UFO's sure feels good, doesn't it. Even better than starting them. I just don't understand why that is??? I just finished my oldest UFO. 29 years old. I never had a pattern for a "quilt" - just for some "blocks". Maybe that was why. You can check the details on my blog.

    Thank you - at the moment both kitties are fast asleep on my bed and I was going to go and change the bedding. It would be such a shame to disturb them, not that it seems to matter to them when I'm sleeping.
