Judy L's UFO Challenge

Sunday, January 21, 2007

I am on a roll!! Yesterday I finished the backing on the Log Cabin and decided to keep forging ahead. I took the time to clean and oil my machine and put away several things that were on and around my machine. While I was at it I put my walking foot on the machine and tightened it with a screw driver. Usually I just hand tighten it, it wiggles loose, starts to fall off and I break needles. I have been quilting and it hasn't loosened at all. I even quilted a few lines on my Peacock quilt. Click on the "My Pictures" link and look in the UFO folder. This finishing business is very addicting! I hope it lasts until all my UFOs are done and onto future projects!

Today I had grand plans to sew and work around the house all day. I got hooked by the TV for a little while and then dh needed help packing. Next he wanted me to go to the store with him. That ate up 3 hours then I OPed for an hour. I was a little frustrated that I hadn't even sewn yet. When I finally got to sew I quilted quite a bit. I had hoped to get half way through the quilt then hoped for a quarter of the way through. I accomplished neither but still made fair progress. I plan to sew on it every chance I get this week so I can finish it this weekend. My name is launching toward the top of that UFO challengers list. I do NOT want to be queen.

I will report my progress through the week. Hugs y'all!!!

You're so smart getting those UFO's tackled. I would feel so much better about myself if I would finish up some things I have in various stages! Good for you. And best wishes for improvements in your situation. My DH and I lost a business earlier in our marriage and paid back every cent over a decade while raising small children. It was tough and I'll always be waiting for the other shoe to drop in life but we came through it.
