I just realized I haven’t posted an update since issuing myself the mini-challenge.
I did indeed complete UFO #1 – the little red mat. It is all done and actually on display (albeit in the wrong month – it’s for February) on the little dresser. YAY! I used my large stipple stencil and FMQ’d it. There are some HUGE toe-catching stitches on it, but I have to start somewhere.
I also quilted all of Sheri’s quilt, which is a twin. I then unpinned it and snipped all the threads last night, which took me well over an hour (so of course I watched 2 tivo’d things). It needs to be trimmed and bound. I do have class tonight, and a doctor’s appointment right after work, so I may or may not get this done. If I could get it trimmed and the binding attached before class, then I can leave it next to my bed at night and work on it as I wind down each night. I want to get his one in the mail on Saturday because her birthday is on the 8th.
Monday night did leave me exhausted. I took a nap when I got home, watched some TV and then ended up going to bed. I do not know how I ended up this tired, but I went with it.
So week 17 showed the little red amt as a finish and week 18 should show Sheri’s quilt as a finish. Other items in consideration are the Hunter quilt, 2 lasagna quilts and the Jackson quilt. That’s 4 more things. That leaves one left to figure out.
