I think part of my problem has been our weather. We are experiencing another Arctic front.
This evening's temperatures (around 9 p.m.) was 8 degrees (F) but it feels like -4. The wind is REALLY cold. The furnace is working over-time. It was a really good excuse to stay home today :)
So, I got my laundry caught up. Everything is washed, dried, folded and put away :) YEAH ! ! !
In the meantime, I got reacquainted with my sewing machine. Remember this:
I spent today working on the pouch portion of this little project.
I've still got some more hand sewing to do on it, but it will be done this week. I think it's adorable.
You can find the pattern and instructions here. It's a three-part series on making the hexies and the pouch. She has links to the other two parts.
I also pulled out another UFO !!! I started collecting and making these when I worked at JoAnn Fabrics. This particular one is dated 1999 - I'd already left and had a couple more jobs. They are BOM kits. I found several in my "stuff". I don't have all 12 of these - at least not at the present moment, but I'll finish the blocks I do have and maybe set them aside in hopes that I find the others. If I don't, I've already decided to either use solid blocks for the ones that are missing or as my BFF suggested, make a wall hanging from the ones I do have. That would work really well too. I have at least three more of these collections to work my way through. One UFO at a time :)
Thanks so much for stopping by,
Wishing you a creative day.
