Bustin Out

On Saturday morning we are leaving for a 5 day camping trip. I am so excited. I love camping, and this time we are camping with my family, which is a rare treat. I packed a few hand-appliqué pieces from my Christmas Sampler UFO, and will be working on those. I may or may not also pack my Bliss UFO, on which I am finally hand-stitching the binding. I don’t want it to get dirty, or rather, dirtier, but am excited to finally get this quilt finished!

Hopefully, next week when I link up with my fellow UFO Busters I’ll have a finish to show!

Will you be working on any UFOs this weekend? Grab a few hours and bust one of those lingering UFOs! Pick one now, snap a picture, and link up with Thearica at Pigtales and Quilts. Look what I won last week:

Awesome! I can’t wait to start playing with these appliqué shapes. Thanks Thearica!

This week I won’t be playing in the UFO Weekend Party. So sad. No internet or electricity where I’m going! Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Have a great time camping! Safe travels!

  2. Love your projects and your blog. Just stopped over from Slow poke!

  3. Have a fun time! I think I need a camping trip too to get away from the frustration of a computer that doesn't work.

  4. Have fun on your camping quilt. Hope you get a lot of busting done.

  5. Enjoy you time away from the maddening crowd!

    Happy hand stitching!

  6. Hope your trip is great! Good idea to take some hand-applique pieces to work on. When I was cross-stitching a UFO near the beginning of the Challenge, I found that the least little increment of time really added up to completing the piece! I hope you get a lot done and have fun away.

  7. Hi Jen, I'm in Sac, so we are neighbors! Your hand stitching looks good, love the flower!

  8. Hi Jen..I tried to not post "anonymous" but just could not get Blogger to sign me in yesterday! Gah...
    I hang with a 35 yr. old sewer/quilter in RSVL, so I do get up there often. We will have to do lunch or coffee eh?
    Have a good campout!

  9. Have fun on your trip! It's such a relief to get away from technology every now and then. I'm excited to see the finished Bliss quilt!


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