I like February - February is the month of hearts - I LOVE HEARTS!!
Yesterday I made lots of hearts -
to add to all of my other hearts.
Hearts - hearts - and more hearts.
I did LOUSY on the UFO Challenge for January!!
We were supposed to work on UFO #6 (Stage 6 Projects) -
Stage 6. Need Top Construction - Layout - Borders - etc.
- Citrus Chips
B/W/R - Red Cosmoto Stage 5 - 1/18/11
- B/W/R - Black Stripe
B/W/R - Black Stripe made it up onto the design wall.
Citrus Chips didn't make it out of its box.
But I cleared out all six of my Stage 1 Projects -
Stage 1. Need Story and Photos
Space - The New FrontierDone 1/2/11 Big & BoldDone 1/2/11 SerenityDone 1/2/11 Topsy TurvyDone 1/2/11 Springtime - Mystery QuiltDone 1/2/11 Christmas LightsDone 1/2/11
Stage 2. Need Label - Heart - Scrap Card - Story and Photos
B/W/R Pillowcases (5)Done 1/30/11 LabelsDone 1/5/11 HeartDone 1/30/11 Scrap CardDone 1/24/11 StoryDone 1/2/11 PhotosDone 12/31/10
When I made the label I realized that I had to add one more quilt to my Stage 3 (Needs Quilting) list - FMQA - Practice Quilt.
Now for February - Judy (Patchwork Times - UFO Challenge) - chose UFO #10.
For me - that would be Stage 10 Projects -
Stage 10. Cut and Needs to be Pieced - Not Started Yet - etc.
- Hexagon Floral Tablecloth
- Bali Wonder Blocks
- Bali Pops - Mint Chip
- Jungle - Black
- Jelly Beans
Part of me says - I have B/W/R - Black Stripe up on the design wall in the hallway - just waiting to be put together. It would be a shame to get it that far and not sew it together (and move it up the ladder to Stage 5).
Another part of me says - I should just drop it. Put it back in its box and move on to the February challenge. That's what the challenge is all about - what can you do in a month? You did what you could - move on.
And another part of me says - Stage 10 Projects aren't even started yet!! They are cut - but why have more "partially done" projects - aren't they better just cut and waiting until I want/need another project to piece?
And another part of me says - you like the piecing part - it would be fun to see how many more you can move up the ladder. You can always cut some more - it's not like you don't have any fabric or kits or patterns or ideas.
Another part of me says - do both - work on the Stage 10 Projects and finish up B/W/R - Black Stripe. Who says I can't do both? My UFOs - My Rules!! YAY!!
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew - and stop talking to myself -
