What could I accomplish quilt-wise with an extra day in the weekend. Tackle the very long UFO list. And what did I accomplish quilt-wise with my extra day....not as much as I had hoped.
So what was on that list...finish a mug rug for Mollie. Check. Mollie drove up for a cook out to celebrate Labor Day and family. We had a great time and Mollie loved her mug rug. Failed to take a pic though.
Also on the list...catch up on the Craftsy BOM. Well...a partial success. Back in April, Mollie and I traveled to Raleigh, Cary and Chapel Hill in a mini shop hop. Our goal...to purchase 20 fabrics...1/2 yard each...that we could split into fat quarters (saved a bit of money doing it that way) and start the Craftsy BOM. We had a blast buying all the fabric. Although by the end...whew...I was exhausted.
We got off to a pretty good start...each finishing three block in one day a couple weekends later. Then Mollie started summer classes and then fall classes and then it was Labor Day. Mollie has gracefully given me permission to move ahead without her. I didn't want to but 20 beautiful fabrics calling out to be cut and sewn...well, I couldn't resist.
Here are my January Slashed Blocks...the Asterisk Block and the Wonky Pound Sign Block...
And my February HST blocks....the Balkan Puzzle Block
And completed just today...whooohooo...Chunky Chevron Block.
So while I only checked a couple items off (counting the one block as an item...got to celebrate the small victories when you can) my list this weekend, I did have a wonderful time with my family.
