|See how none of the vertical sashing lines up? It did before quilting.|
I've made a modest amount of progress on the horse cross stitch. I'd mentioned before that I was probably going to run out of thread. I was looking through my DMC floss boxes to find a match to one of the threads and found one right off the bat. I happened to look down at the chart and notice that the DMC colors are all listed, just with a 1 in front of each number. This made me so happy! One less thing to worry about!
I made a small amount of progress on the R2-D2 quilt as well. I fixed the ruffly spot, stitched two more passes of the pattern, and noticed that I have a huge ruffle again. So I am picking out more stitching and trying to figure out how to blend in this new trouble spot. Can't wait to see the end of this project.
I am frustrated with many of the projects I have going, so it seemed like a good time to work on something different. (Why do I have so many UFOs again? ha ha ha) I pulled out this half-done strawberry quilt to work on.
I still have plenty of other things to work on, just like always. I probably will never run out in my lifetime. I still need to make my shirts (I think going on a year now and getting to the point where I really NEED them done), I want to make a small travel wallet, I have tons of quilt tops to be quilted, tons of doll clothes to finish, tons of UFOs, gardening, cleaning, etc. I don't understand when people say they would get bored staying at home. I really never run out of things to do. Maybe I don't want to do them, but there is always something to do.
I'm kinda bummed I won't make it to the AQS show next week. It would be a temptation to spend money I need for other things. I would really like to see Innova's PantoVision in person though. I find it fascinating. No idea if it works with my machine, but what a great idea! Honestly, I think I may have seen it working at the last quilt show I went to, but assumed it was just the computer system, which I will likely never own, so didn't pay any attention to it. I need to be more mindful of things. And quit frittering away time.
