I'm writing this post in advance of Judy L's Design Wall Monday because Monday I will be at Crystal's with the kiddos while she and Mike go to her ultrasound and maybe do some running around.
I can't believe this is week 6 and I finally have something new on my design wall. It isn't a UFO and won't be. It's a tablerunner from the Moda Bake Shop called Sugar Cookies. I need to take it with me to my favorite quilt shop, Country Manor and get some fabric for the sashing and the border. I didn't know what I wanted to do with the charm pack when I bought it until I saw this. I'm hoping she has some of the red for the outer border. If she doesn't, she'll have something else that will work. I'm sure of it.
Week 2 and Week 5 had this beauty on my design wall and I am happy to report that it is put together and ready for quilting! I'm excited. I'm going to play with some free motion quilting, nothing too fancy because this needs to be done. So for my small group UFO challenge, I am going to call this one not quite done for the month. But gee, I do have until the 10th. I don't think I'm going to make it. Because I lost my mojo, I am a little behind in my UFO completion for the group. No worries though. I'll get it. After all, this one only took 8 years to get to this stage.
Oh, about the glove...I wanted to toss it but the tightwad in me says it's brand new and those things are like $5 a pair but he buys them by the dozen so they are a little cheaper. That is why I have a couple boxes of gloves....dirties that need to be washed 2 or 3 times to get them clean--yukkieness! and a box of clean. They are all the same so it's like having a clean sock basket only it's gloves.......... Do you have a sock basket???
