Goal Report - Week ending 3/11/17

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.
