somehow, summer decided not to show this year, instead it feels more like fall just went ahead and got itself a yearlong ticket to Munich.
I now got a little time on hand and am determined to finally get all my UFOs out of my hair. I really hate not being able to start new projects because I should continue with old ones.
I have about four quilts I should finish and tons of other things that got to the half-sewn stage but never made it further. That and my Dawanda shop which I have neglected for the past few months. Whenever I had time to sew, I spent it on something for me.
That said, I admire people that get through with their projects every single time. I love the process but sometimes get so frustrated when it takes longer then expected that I put it into some little corner in my closet.
This weekend, I managed to put a new quilt top on an old green Ikea blanket. I wonder why I ever picked a green blanket, it is so not my favorite color! At least the front makes me happy now, I just need to recover the back :)
I also have a chubby star quilt top on which I stopped sewing two years ago because the colors just weren't right. I am wondering if I should take it apart and reuse the Sandi Henderson Fabric in another quilt. I did use the scraps from it to make three placemats. So that little corner in my closet can breath again :)
And then there was a bit of new fabric that arrived a couple of days ago and made such a perfect upholstered chair. I had been planning to do so since I got it a year ago :)
I hope you are all having a great summer, with hopefully some sewing time in between :)
