Yay for Friday!

It’s Friday! Yay for Friday! This week I didn’t do any sewing, boo. It’s been too hot. The only thing I’ve done is lay on the couch slurping popsicles and swaying in time with the fan! We finally broke down and turned on the air conditioner. Now our house is much cooler and I’ve found my energy.

I cleaned the house last night. Bathrooms, floors, even cleared the breakfast bar and dining room table of all paperwork. Then I still felt like cleaning and decided to tackle my sewing room. It’s pretty again! I can go in and not feel oppressed and hot and lazy. Now when I walk in I feel energized and renewed. I still need to organize it better, but at least everything is off the floor and off my desk. Before, the room looked like a thread and paper factory had exploded.

I also finally washed my First Quilt. I have to admit I was so scared to wash it. I had this paranoid thought that as soon as I washed it the quilting would start unraveling. I was kinda right! The quilting came out fine, but one square completely fell apart at the seams. I don’t know what happened. The rest of the quilt is fine except for that one square. Were the seams too scant?

How do I fix it? Topstitch? Quilt in the ditch around that one square?

Thearica at Pigtales and Quilts is hosting a new UFO link party. Beginning July 1st, every Friday night Thearica will post a link page where you can link up. The plan is work on your UFO that weekend and blog about it before Monday morning. Thearica will be giving prizes too! Come play with us!

This works in my master plan perfectly. Now that I’m more or less caught up on my BOMs, I will be using the weekends to work on my UFOs. And Friday nights are wide open now! I’ll reserve the weekdays for my BOMs and other current projects. It feels so good to have a plan!
This weekend is my county fair. The local guild is having a Quilt Show in the fairgrounds. I’m so super jazzed to go! I can’t wait to check out some local talent. Yay for Friday!!


  1. I would use a needle and thread and try to resew the seams.... if you have more of that fabric, I might cut a slightly larger square out so your seams would be wider before hand sewing.... sorry I can't explain better.

  2. Thanks so much for shouting out about the UFO Challenge! I hope we get lots of people to play along!


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know you were here! Comments mean so much to me. Have a fantastic day!
