Tuesday Night + Weekend Crafting..........Whoo Hoo!!

Well here we again, craft night.  Tuesday night was a quiet night with only 2 ladies but still plenty to chat about.  I got a quick lesson in blogging so I can try and blog the happenings of UFO craft nights and anything else that may be happening in the crafting world.  After the quick lesson it was getting a bit late to get the machine out and continue my planned Tuesday night project but I was very busy on the weekend doing odd patchwork projects.  I was quiet pleased with myself by the end of the weekend managing to get some projects done that I had been putting off because new and exciting projects were calling my name (darn that internet surfing).  I started with sewing on the binding of two quilts, putting the final boarders on a quilt ready to be quilted, put the last of few blocks together ready to assemble that quilt in a pleasing display and last but not least trying out some decorative stitches (from my new sewing machine J) on a rag quilt that I am assembling for my daughter (who is suppose to be doing this project but lost interest :\ ), so all in all one very pleased quilter J.  The sewing room is starting to look a little bare I just may have to fill it up some fabric, no, no, no, I can’t do that remember UFO busting year (maybe one or two pieces can’t hurt he, he, he).

The decorative stitch - it looks a bit like birds feet.

As for Ms D she had quite a product night arranging her “Little Apples” quilt into many different variations, check out the photo below of one of her many quilt styles and leave a comment of what you think.  I kind of like the chevron look I wish I had taken more photos of other variations for comparison, can’t wait for the finished quilt top to see what style she finally did decide on.

 Before I close off I came across a UFO busting article by Pat Sloan that you may be interested in reading, just go HERE .  Each month Pat is going to give some tips and tricks to busting those UFO's.  Check it out it proves to be some interesting reading and a bit of laugh, along with how true when it comes to tallying and working out what order of inportance we place our UFO’s.

Until next time...
