Christmas Lone Star and a Life Change

I have pulled out another old UFO…from 199?…to add to my New Year’s Resolutions to-do list.

Okay…so it has been on the Focus list for the last year or so. I really mean to get it done in 2022…no more carrying it to the next year!

It is a Christmas Lone Star and I was quite pleased that more work was done on it than I remembered!

I now have it pin basted and ready for quilting.

And the life change?

I made a scary and exciting decision to retire from the day job!

2022 really will be a new beginning for me!

Happy New Year!

Quilt On!

June OMG Goal 2019

Aunt Bea's Parlor

Last month, I took the Aunt Bea’s Parlor project out of the closet and added the borders.

The goal this month was to create a backing for it. 

I don’t have a photo, but I already pieced the backing.

So I decided to have the pin-basting be this month’s goal.

That’s done, too.

Now my goal for June is to stitch in the ditch to stabilize the quilt sandwich.

I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts.  Check it out and join other’s in setting your own goal for June!  I find it inspiring and fun to visit bloggers and see what projects they are working on.

May OMG Goal 2019 Update

Time to share an update on my May OMG (One Monthly Goal).

I had decided that it was time to get the Aunt Bea’s Parlor project out of the closet and finish up the borders.

I also said that I had issues with piecing the borders and that it was the pattern’s fault.

Ahem.

Turns out, as is often the case when I am involved, my issues were due to operator error.

Somehow the piecing just went together so much better when I took the time to mark and pin.

Go figure.

May OMG Goal 2019

Remember the Aunt Bea Parlor embroidery quilt?

Yeah…it has been a while.

I think that October 2017 was the last time that I shared anything about it.

I put the quilt on a hanger and left it in the closet.  Why, I wonder?

I may have been having a border issue, as in…my border wasn’t fitting the way the pattern said.  Maybe I got frustrated. 

And, no maybes about it, when I am done with this project, I will not be cutting triangles for borders before the top is sewn together.

For now, I will be satisfied to lose points and get the top done!

So that is my goal for May.

April OMG 2019

“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.” ― Helen Keller

Work hours have increased; it is time to get outside and play in the garden; and I do have vacation time coming.  It is a lot to pack into the month.

So, I am going to keep this month’s OMG very simple, but even so, I am not sure that I can complete it. 

Pajamas

I purchased this cute llama print a couple of months ago (or so).  

When I get home from work, I love to get comfy in a t-shirt and pajama bottoms, so I intended to make pajamas with it.

I have the pieces cut out…all two of them.  Ha, ha!  Not even any pockets!
