WIP 22/01/2014

It is almost 8pm here in Saskatchewan which means I am a little late in linking up to WIP Wednesday.

 I will be honest I pretty well slept the whole darn day. After 20 days of having a panic attack every time I tried to sleep I am finally back to being able to control them a bit better and well.... sleep. Nights are still a struggle, but I figure if I can get in a couple of hours during the day then I should take what I can get...lol

I am still working on my  January Goal is to Finish my wonky star table runner. ( created by Cathy over at 
 http://cathy-blueberrypatch.blogspot.ca/2013/11/wonky-wony-little-star-table-runner.html )

Once I cleared the cobwebs out this evening I sandwiched my quilt and started to quilt it. I bough some christmasy metallic thread a while back and decided to use that. It was a struggle at first using it while doing FMQ, but after a few choice words I got the hang of it and the rest went quite smoothly. Now my FMQ isn't perfect, but I really enjoy the squiggly look so that is what I decided to do.




Goal for next week. To put on binding and finish this puppy :)


2014  Sewing Mission Statement
In order to try and get some UFO's done this year I am going to try and keep my current to do list 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.

  3. Metallic threads can be a real pain in the you-know-where, but you seem to have really mastered them, your quilting looks great.
