Big plans, not so much done


When the weekend started I had BIG plans being all day in my sewingroom doing some finishes.  This is the three projects I picked out of my boxes.  But as the weekend went on my plans did not work out the way I inteded.  A little bit shopping with my daughter was very fun, also visiting a friend drinking coffee, sewing and planning the project we both are sewing on.


Friday evening just relaxing and sewing on my hexagon quilt.  I really made some progress on it. 


Saturday morning I entered my sewingroom and chose to work on this UFO.  Made this a long time ago for a class that never took place, so I guess that’s why it was not finished.


During saturday morning I finished this cushion.  Now one of the Christmas cushions can be taken out of the sofa.


Sunday morning waking up really late and I was not at all feeling good.  Have to learn my lesson and not it that much cheese and biscuits so late.  But when I finally got into my sewingroom i picked this stitchery for my days work.  Originally the pattern is for a table runner.  But I have only done one of the stitcheries and do not want it as a tablerunner.  Want to make a cushion out of this stitchery too.


But as the day went on (with a coffee visit to a friend) I started to cut squares and sew them together.  But I did not like it at all. So I unpicked it all ……


…..and found some other fabrics. I needed some more colours, the first choice of fabrics was not at all good.  Now I have to start from scratch again.


So instead of continuing sewing on the cushion I relaxed in my chair sewing more hexagons on my Aunt Sarahs quilt. 


I finished the center piece during my visit in Shipshwana and this is how far I have come now.  It is so fun sewing on this quilt, so it will have my focus as hand stitching project for next week.  And hopefully I will finish the cushion this week to.

Saying for today:

I can't believe how much you've accomplished so far this new year! Isn't it nice to stitch away a weekend? Are you getting your wintery weather yet? The ice is hitting us tonight, so I have everything charging so by the morn I'll have it if the ice storm takes the power out. That charging includes the small power pack so I can machine sew for a while, too :)
Anyway, thanks for sharing your stitching - it's a great motivation to me to get some UFOs done also!
