WIP 08/01/2014

Here we are in 2014 already and I haven't done much sewing at all. Good thing that wasn't my new years resolution...lol
The only think I have been working for the past week is this stupid sinus cold that wont go away. I am use to taking OTC meds and kicking cold and flu bugs in the butt asap, but alas one of the joys of being pregnant means I just have to suck it up...even when I can't...LOL

I did get a bit of work done before the New Year and I will post about that today. As you may recall I was working on a Christmas table runner. Did I get it ready in time for Christmas....well no, but I should be ready for Christmas 2014!

It looks like a hot mess right now, but once its all sewn together it should be quite nice...fingers crossed..LOL


 It is called a wonky star table runner and there is a great tutorial over at http://cathy-blueberrypatch.blogspot.ca/2013/11/wonky-wony-little-star-table-runner.html

In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list rather small and just work on one thing at a time. I am going to try and not start anything "new" but instead take one thing off of my no progress list each month.

  2. The table runner will be very nice once it is completed. I know how hard it is for me to do any sewing while I'm expecting. Take it easy, and work on it when you feel up to it. ;)

  3. Once baby arrives you won't be doing much sewing at the beginning....sleeping when baby is sleeping most probably. You to do's will keep:)
