As you all can maybe remember I did a post at the beginning of the year with some goals that I wanted to accomplish. I thought if once a month I gave you a status update then maybe it would help keep on track with those. But we will see at the end of the year right.
One of my goals was to learn some new quilting skills. I am happy to report that I signed up for a beginning hand applique class. Its not until March so I will have more info in the future. But I am super excited that I have signed up.
I also long arm quilted a quilt for the first time a couple weeks ago. HOORAY!! It wasn’t the best when I was done. But I am so excited that I did. I will show you guys pictures soon. Its a gift so I am keeping it on the down low.
Now as for my BOM’s. I honestly haven’t started the FQS with the Wishes fabric. I haven’t had time to go out and get my background yet. Hopefully soon since they just released the pattern for block 2.
These are the first 2 blocks for the half square triangle BOM i am in. I am loving the colors in these blocks. So the first one I did I was talking to my son and squared it up wrong. That is why my points don’t meet in the middle. 🙁
The first week of The Happy Quilting quilt along was just cutting and I got it done with not much time to spare.
I honestly have been getting much sewing done, much to my dismay. I have a very cute little 4 month old that commands a lot of my attention. Oh and a almost 4 year old who also needs my attention. And lets not leave out the 6 year old. 3 kids is definitely harder than 2. But I love it and wouldn’t trade it for all the sewing time in the world.
My other problem is that my sewing studio seems to be the place where everything gets thrown when we are cleaning. (see pics below) And thought of cleaning it makes me tired. And it needs to be cleaned before I can sew. Because i can’t even get to my machine. Just look at the pictures. (no worries though. I cleaned it last night after I took the pics.)
I have made it a goal to blog better this month. And I have some great giveaways lined up. So stay tuned…
