Just my musings about life, quilting, my family and my dog.

Design Wall Monday - January 30, 2012

I went a little crazy this weekend and did a bunch of improvisational piecing.  These are blocks from a class I took a few years ago.  In truth, this is about 300% more blocks than I actually completed in that class.  This is on my UFO list and when I saw that I only had about 15 % done I knew I better work on it before its number gets pulled. 

Surprisingly, The Husband had some design input!  It was good, too!!  He seemed a little excited by them.  I still think they look like an unholy mess but I'm trying to loosen up - apparently, a very hard thing for me- who woulda guessed?  There are still a few blocks that can benefit from more editing.  It's a work in progress, just like me!

Have a great week.  The weather here in San Diego is simply spectacular.  I hope yours is as well.

UFO Angst

YIPES!!!  I just added a sweet progress gadget to my blog (Thanks, Mary).  I was typing happily away, adding quilt names and % completed. 


It was such a nice feeling to be updating y blog with something new.  Then...I hit "preview."  I peeked at the gadget, it all looked perfect.  I was really proud of myself at this point.  Then I saw it!!  DO you see it? 

I am talking about all the UNPURPLE areas.  All of that equals what I have to get done on these quilts.  Judy will pull a number and I have to work my heiny off to get the respective bar to 100% by month's end.  I am really praying that #s 7 and 8 don't get pulled for a LONG time.
