My Mom also gives me her great leftovers. It is like buying NEW fabric when I get something from her stash. Pictured above is a combo using blocks she had left over from a mystery quilt that she did. I made the diagonal striped blocks that are on a foundation square. VERY easy sewing. But it will be a cute quilt when done. DONE.... that is a word that fails me lately UNLESS it is a bag I am making as a gift OR something with a deadline.
But thinking about my life, I am a UFO.... an unfinished object. We all grow and change while we are kids, but once that "physcial" growing stops, then comes much growth in other areas. This spring I would like to grow in a few ways. Grow in my physical health. Grow in my ability to have patience with my kiddos. Grow in my ability to prioritize the important stuff day to day. I have a knack for the ability to ignore the piling laundry and go sew. Not always the best choice. Striking a better balance is what I would like.
So if you have any UFOs around your sewing room OR things in the corners of your life that you would like to change... Let me challenge you to do so! It's SPRING!! Great things are possible!
