Well, I just looked at my posted UFO's (I have marked the completed ones with a red *) and am surprised that I don't seem to be making a lot of progress. I have completed several things but not many of them are on my lists. Oh well, I have one more block to do to get caught up on my blue and white stars project and I'll get back to my list.

Of course, I added several more things to work on after my trips to Paducah and Columbus, OH. I have put myself on a strict "no buy" regimen for a while in the hope that I can get some new ones under way (only to become more UFOs) and complete some current UFOs.

Oh my - so many projects, so little time.

I'm Making Progress

I've been busy working on the star quilt that a friend and are are working on together. It was a block of the month kit that we bought for half price (good deal - ~15 yards of fabric plus the pattern for $99). I have never seen so many stars in my life - tons of cutting lots of small pieces. It will be so nice when it is finished but getting there will be challenging.

I have finished some of my UFO's and done a couple of small Start to Finish projects. The small bag is neat and will be good for traveling. The batik square is foundation
pieced and will be donated to my guild's Small Quilt Auction at our quilt show in October. The snowman is a quick cross stitch project that I really enjoyed. It has beading on it.

I also finished four blocks for a fellow bee member - I don't care for 30's fabrics but the pieces were small. :) I also finished my blue and yellow wallhanging. That was a quick one.
