So today my DH (and I mean dear in the best sense of the word) took my two little people out for five (yes, FIVE!!) hours. I love that man. I sewed and cleaned and watched what I wanted to watch on television. It was bliss.
I fished out this UFO:
I've a few other half appliqued blocks to add to it, and a few squares to cut out, and then hopefully soon I'll be able to cross that off my list also. It was a block that was leftover from another quilt (it didn't really work where I wanted to put it) so I made more blocks to make a bigger quilt. I could have just put this on the back of something but I tend to start new projects with leftover old ones. I suppose that's part of my UFO problem. Not knowing when to stop.
I had a productive day - I stitched a few folder covers and diary covers for a trading table our quilting group is holding, and I finished my paper bag challenge, which had a deadline of next month, so I'm doing well! The covers looked very boring in the photos, so I won't show them off. I couldn't find a tutorial online that covered exactly what I wanted to do, so I made them my own way and I'm actually quite pleased with them.
So all in all, I'm feeling refreshed, accomplished, and I'm ready to hit Monday morning running!
