Goals for the week ending 3/11/17
1. Redwork - UFO 2015
- put first row together - Done
Not only did I get one row assembled - I got all three of them done !! And I'm fairly certain what I'm going to do next :)
2. Sheep - New 10/2016
- start next block (#4 I think of 9) - Done
- cut strips for the first alternate block - Done
Next block is started . . .
These blocks are big - 18 inches square !! I decided on an alternate block pattern. They finish at only 12 inches square, so after some arithmetic, I cut the strips for those blocks.
These are just some of them.
I'll use the leftovers from the Redwork quilt so I don't have to purchase more and I know there will be leftovers.
3. "He is Risen" - UFO
- finish stitching - Done
This is a Jenny of Elefantz design. It's free if you are interested.
4. Needlebook - New 3/2017
- sew on binding - Done
This is another Jenny design. It was free too when I downloaded it. Follow the link above to track it down.
I sewed the binding on by hand in front of the TV on Friday evening.
I can never have enough needlebooks and with the sentiment on this one, the fabric was perfect. I have leftovers that I'm gifting to BF so she can have one too. I just haven't decided if I'm going to make it for her or let you make her own. I think she already has the pattern :)
5. Easter bin - UFO
- modify/finalize layout of design - Done?
I decided I didn't really need to change my design layout that I made a few years ago when I found these. The bin is dated 2000 !!!
My floss colors are going to come from my border fabric - isn't it fun? It's so bright and happy :)
I've got my designs, fabric and stabilizer - they are all cut to size and ready. I just have to draw off the designs.
6. "Welcome" - New 2/2017
- shop for "ribbon" - Done
I got on line and found 4mm ribbon for this project. It's ordered and should arrive in about a week. It sure took a chunk out of the crafting budget. BF sends me photos of her progress every few days. If mine turns out half as beautiful as hers, it will be amazing.
Sunday I got a confirmation email for my order and was enticed to purchase a beginner's ribbon embroidery book - can't wait for that either.
- draw off design - no progress, adding it to next week's goals.
