For each UFO on your list, you put $1.00 in the pot. During the year, as you complete your UFO's, and show them at Sew and Tell, the coordinator marks them as completed on your list. At the June meeting, a drawing is held. For every completed UFO, you get your name in the pot again. So If I had 10 UFO's on my list, I put $10 in the pot. If I finished 7 of my UFO's, my name goes in the drawing 7 times. The first name drawn gets one half of the money. The second and third names drawn get a quarter each! It's a fun way to earn money while finishing up your UFO's, right?
Well, it's only a week until our last meeting on June 1st. My UFO list has 20 things on it. I am trying hard to finish them all. I've got # 17 ready to quilt today...then only two left!! Keep your fingers crossed for me, OK?
So, one of the things on my list, was to finish the sewing cross stitch I had been working on at bee, when I had no quilts to bind. I don't take my sewing machine to bees...just hand work.
I was really into cross stitch back in the 80's....then I lost interest. I have found I still do like doing it, so now I keep a project in my bee bag, all the time.
Another UFO on my list, is this cute little house quilt. It started as a kit from Connecting Threads...but in the end, I used my sewing themed scraps to make it.
I'm taking down my old Mary Engelbreit sewing themed quilt that hangs over The Queen Mother, aka my HQ Sweet 16 Sit Down machine,
(you can see it on the right side of this pix)
and replacing it with a collection of small mini-quilts... so these two will be up there, soon!
You remember my adorable grandson, Neal?
Isn't he just the cutest baby ever???? Those EYES!!
Yogi is dying to know what cute things YOU are making today??
