My main goal from last week was to get the rest of the rows on my Splendid Sampler 'Salt water Taffy' version done. Do you like that name? The colors remind me of a beach box of saltwater taffy, but I digress!

I got one row done, then stalled.

So why did I stall?  I know why.

I didn't ...

UFO (UnFinished Object) Friday

Each Friday pick a UFO to work on. Spend as much time on it as you can. That might mean only 10 minutes. Or you may end up working on it and and on all work. If you have something almost done, work on that, it feels GREAT to finish!

I have 800 bindings to do (not really .. you know that right?)  And this week I ...

Wrapping up the June One Monthly Goal from Life In Pieces

It's been pretty much a do nothing Saturday.  We woke up and found three college girls asleep in the living room. The Scientist in training was home for the first time since summer semester started. This was the first chance since Christmas that the high school girlfriend pack has been able to meet up. So that meant I couldn't do too much of anything around the house. Which was 100% OK with me.  Work was just weird and wired this week, I was ready for a day of down time. 

It's the next to last day of ...

UFO Friday and Some other cool stuff from Pat Sloan's Blog

Welcome to our first UFO Friday!  I talked about this idea of mine on my Fireside chat this week about having 1 or 2 days a week where I plan to work on something specific. I don't want to be TOO crazy by having each day be a scheduled task, that doesn't work for my brain. But maybe Tues and Friday will be a day I plan to work at least a little bit on a specific category, like UFOs (which is an UnFinished Object) . Friday is UFOs. So if nothing else but 10 minutes on a UFO ...

Daisy Chain Mystery - Enough to See it Works from Life In Pieces

It's been a long stormy week in Oklahoma. We've had storms just about every evening since Monday night. Tuesday morning there was only one road open between downtown and the rest of the community due to river flooding. The water rose all day Tuesday, they let us out of work a bit early to ensure that everyone could get home in case the water overtook that route. The tornadoes missed us, as did the baseball sized hail that took out the windshield of one of my coworkers as she drove home Wednesday night.  The Scientist in Training had ...

So you have spent the last month, few days, what seems like a lifetime.....

You have been reporting at my Internet group on how many projects you found, your categories.. or in some cases you ...

My 2019 Resolution is to do something with all the UFOs. 

Many times over the years I've done a series of posts on UFOs. I'll be bringing those back and freshen them up so that we can enjoy more of what we love to do without having guilt attached to it.

Today I have Step 1 for you.. which is my Step 1, funny how that works out perfectly for us!

Weekend Stitching: Mystery Sewing from Life In Pieces

Hard to believe it's the last day of 2018.  I'm hoping to spend a good part of it in the sewing room as I've not really had a chance to do that yet.  I've been tackling the closets while My Guy has been dealing with the decluttering the kitchen cabinets, so it's been a productive holiday break.  

I did get in a solid afternoon of stitching yesterday.  The focus was clues 5 and 6 of Good Fortune. 



I'm hoping to make more progress today.  Bonnie's been known to post the reveal on New ...

Weekend Stitching: Holiday Stitching? from Life In Pieces

Merry Christmas Eve!  We are hanging out with family today, doing a bit of cooking and a lot of laughing.  Unfortunately part of the family has to work today, so we won't see them till tonight.  I have plans for some handwork while we all visit, that will be about it for stitching today.  

Between all the gift wrapping, card addressing, and house cleaning there wasn't a lot of time spent in the sewing room this weekend.  I did get some holiday stitching done, Halloween stitching, not Christmas.  



My Guy said the bats needed eyes, so I found ...

Time to evaluate your UFOs... I am gone a lot this month and have some big deadline, so I'm going for a 'moving them forward' but I have a finish I'm not sure I showed you &  backing that moves me forward! AND I've added something NEW below!
