You may be talking to Royalty this week!! I'm Lady-In-Waiting #5 on the UFO Queen's list on Stashbusters online. That was as of 1-16-13 and Lord knows this list has been moving like the wind at Cape Blanco!! [120 mph winds are not unusual in winters!] I'm hunkering down; trying to find the easiest UFO to finish quick-like! Wish me luck!
I'm wondering if I have lost my mind this year. Those of you that know me can attest that I RARELY join in on BOMs, Yes, I did one with Quilted Moose - those kits were just too fun to not join in!!! But, usually I don't participate in guild offerings. Well, not so much this year!! I'm in FOUR!! Not counting poor "Farmer's Wife" that's been sitting neglected for 2 years!!
Brookings is having a 6 month BOM. Started last fall - seemed easy enough and not too long. So I joined. At the Newport Guild, I joined the applique BOM at the beginning of the meeting [20 applique 'Flowers in a vase' blocks] and the "paperless paper piecing Mariner's Compass BOM at the end of the meeting!
Add the Quiltmania House BOM [so far my favorite, but don't tell anyone!] and I'll be lucky to get anything done besides these! BUT I do have a plan. Brookings has a "Fun Day" of sewing the last Monday of the month. There's usually a class for a new technique but everyone is welcome to bring their own projects. IF my Newport BOMs are not done by then - that's the projects I must work on. I sound sure of myself, we'll see if I can force myself to follow-thru with it! Here's hoping!
P and I get together when we can and make the Quiltmania block together. So far, we've managed once a month - and the excitement's building!! We've done Block 1 and Block 3. One of the joys of being behind on a BOM is you can switch them up. Take them out of order. In this case, try to break up all the hard blocks from being in a row.
Off to the sewing room to glare at my UFOs!! All right, you UFOs better cooperate, I want a volunteer and I mean now and you better be easy!!
