    My 2 main UFO's... I want to finish both!

    Hey everyone, It's been nearly 2 years since I've last sewn OR posted here on the forums. I am finally feeling the urge to sew again, and two of my UFO's are first and foremost in my mind. I wish I had a room dedicated to my sewing hobby, but as it is, I have to take over a main living area in order to do it, and it is kind of a pain.

    My first project is this Dotty Stars... I have 6 blocks finished, and I can't remember how many more to go, tho it's a bunch, I'm sure. LOL




    And the second project I'd really like finished is my red, white and blue double Irish chain!!



    This is 5 finished rows, and is planned to be king size for my own bed. I already know I've completely forgotten how to put the pattern together and will have to relearn this one. LOL

    I've been looking at everyone else's photo threads here for the past week and it's helping to inspire me to get going again! Actually, the very last thing I worked on 2 years ago, was the Dear Jane project with a group from here!! I only got about 18 blocks done before I got sick. One day, tho, I'll get going back on that, too!! Yay!

    Great projects to get you started again! Beautiful beginnings. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Glad you posted. Love them both and will be anxious to see them finished. I too, have to take over space in our dining room to quilt. I could make a sewing area in our basement but find I enjoy the natural light from windows and the family if I'm in the dining room. I can be around the family "action" if I'm upstairs.

    I adore your stars. They are wonderful. Your Irish Chain also looks fab and not too far off being finished. The great thing about when you come back to a project that is so far through is it seems to go really quickly again. Hang in there. You have some great rewards coming your way. Love what you have done.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.
