Today is a lazy, lazy day. I don't even feel like sewing (Gasp! I know!). I guess Monday is looming over my head like a big, dark, ugly cloud. Tomorrow is back-to-work day. Ugh.
Yesterday, I put together the blocks for my Sock Monkey Postage Stamp quilt.
Slightly fuzzy picture - sorry about that (no, it's not your eyesight). I took this pic when I was laying out the blocks, but they're all sewn together now. I plan to put a border around it and I have some appliqué I'd like to add also. It should be cute when it's done, although I have no idea for whom or what purpose I'm making this. I just had a couple of jelly rolls hanging around.
In the spirit of getting these WIPs out of the way, I've joined Lynne's Year of the Finished Project challenge. This is a good one because we can make up our own rules. Here are mine:
- I will finish at least one WIP per month
- WIPs can be of any variety - quilting, sewing, cross stitch, knitting - and any size
- I can start one new project per month, provided the previous month's WIP has been completed
- Class assignments for the Curves Class I enrolled in do not count as new projects
First up on my list are the Christmas Strings quilt or the above Sock Monkey Postage Stamp quilt. I'll let you know how it goes. (Actually I'll throw a ticker tape parade if I finish one of them by the end of the month.)
