Friday Nite Results

I was able to quilt on this I Spy Quilt that I pieced during the blizzard we had last month. See this post.

Then I decided to practice some free motion quilting on my DSM. I put in an old needle, unthreaded the machine, and practiced on paper. I hoped to be able to practice getting my stitches even.

Friday Nite Sew-In

January's Friday Nite Sew-In is happening tomorrow night. Today I finally made some progress with my free motion quilting by making a "sew slip" by using this tutorial from Jill at The Quilt Rat. I think for my project for the sew-in I will practice my free motion quilting. I signed up for the free motion quilt along (see side bar for link) from Christina over at A Few Scraps but I am a terrible procrastinator and haven't done much with it. I am hopeing to make some progress tomorrow night.

A Belated Happy New Year!

I am a little late with the Happy New Year but better late than never. I have been reading in blogland alot about UFO's and WIP's (unfinished fabric objects and works in progress). I haven't made any resolutions this year but I think I will set some goals. This year I hope to finish 3 UFO's I have in my sewing room. Those would include but not be limited to the scrappy log cabin quilt I started for my youngest son's 18th birthday two years ago, a wall hanging I started for a wedding gift last year and then decided not to give it to them and a quilt top for an anniversary gift. I believe in setting goals that I have a chance in reaching. It helps booast my confidence:o).
