With a little help from Drama Teen, vacation laundry got done and put away early on Sunday, leaving me the rest of the day to play in the sewing room. The fabric closet got a little attention, it still needs a lot more. The last Meadow Mist Mystery quilt is almost bound, there's about 30 inches left to stitch down. So there should be a finish by the end of the week.
Most of the visible progress is on the Christmas Angels Blocks.
Four of the fifteen blocks are finished, with the remaining eleven in various stage of construction. Before we left for vacation, I couldn't resist adding in the alternate blocks and checking out the layout.
There's not enough done on the angel blocks to see the secondary pattern in this photo, but I'm happy with how it's coming together. It would be nice to get this UFO to the finished flimsy stage by the end of the month. Not sure that will happen as I've got a business trip the last week of the month. Even if it's not completely done, it's nice to get one of the older UFOs this far.
My UFO count is at 18, that's the highest it's been in 7 years. In 2012 my UFO list only had 4 quilts on it. I've done pretty well at finishing most of the quilts I've started the last couple of years, it's the ones that I started in 2013 that are really lingering on the list. Eight of the 18 were started in 2013. The plan is to finish 7 UFOs this year. Doubt I get that many to the finish line, but at least I'm making progress.
