UFO Update for October
I was so wrapped up in that show in the beginning of October that I totally forgot to do a UFO post for September. That's great for me right now because with 2 months of activity it might appear like I've actually done something!
The most recent something was finishing the cat postcards. I posted about the one of the left last week and that one is a true "one of a kind" because making one was more than enough. I had to come up with a better use for that cat ribbon and I think I accomplished something that was a lot more fun to make and a a lot better design. I found a cat paw stamp in my stash, Estelle loaned me the cat stencil, I had letter stamps that I had never used before and there was a random pink polka dot ribbon in my stash to finish it off. I'm quite please and had enough ribbon to make 8 of these.
Also in the last 2 months I made a couple dozen fabric flowers and Maine-themed potholders and postcards. To wrap things up, late last night I quilted 2 veterans quilts. I'll have photos of them to share tomorrow. Given my total focus on the show, I'm overall happy with what I accomplished but I am overjoyed to be back into mu old routine.
My goals for November are:
- bind Antelope Canyon
- make 80 Christmas postcards
- resume quilting Lost My Marbles (Spirograph blocks)
- finish the Indonesian Batik quilt top
Here are my current stats:
Starting UFO 15

I have decided that I don't have to have goals for my hobbies anymore- unless I start selling things again.

No list for me I'm afraid, but I'm happy to report that Mrs. Santa's workshop here at Chez Magpie is humming right along and I *think* everything that has to be sewn is done....can't say the same for the knitting and the crocheting though. Love your newest kitty card!

I'm not making much progress since the move, especially since the plan to create a quilting studio out of the sunroom has (sadly) stalled. I took a class in early October that was fun and inspired me to do some sewing, but it also resulted in two new projects. Then I went to a quilt retreat at the end of the month. This was super fun and I made some good progress on an existing project, but also started on another new project!
