Oh what a month! I had big plans and all were dashed when I injured my arm at the beach and that meant the end of longarm quilting for a few weeks. The few weeks turned into more like 5 or 6. I am finally going to be able to get back to it and am going to quilt one of Mon's quilts and my Stars at Sea quilt before loading Lost My Marbles again. So I might have 1 finish for the month.
But what I accomplished in June was two NEW projects! I started Loony Moony to applique shibori moons on a hand dyed background. I also started another flower applique project. These have kept me busy while I couldn't sew or quilt.
Meanwhile my friend, Marcy, quilted 8 veterans quilts for me!
My starting goals for 2018 were:
Starting UFO 15
Finished YTD Goal 12
Started YTD Planned 6
Ending UFO Goal 9
Veterans YTD Goal 40
Here's where things currently stand:
Starting UFO 15
Finished YTD 1 (Goal 12)
Started YTD 6 (Planned 6)
Ending UFO 20 (Goal 9)
Veterans YTD 12 (Goal 40)
Fabric Postcards 57
Pet Beds 2
Placemats - 4
Clearly things are going in the wrong direction! I don't expect that to get much better either and I'm OK with it. I do know of one more project that I want to start but that will probably be this fall before I can start it. Meanwhile my main focus is on getting ready for the AQS Virginia Beach show and I have about 400 more yards of fabric to dye to be less stressed about that. My 2 new hand sewing projects are about all I have the energy to do when I finally sit down in the evening. I might make some great progress on both this summer and fall.
How are you doing on your UFO projects?
