UFO. Somehow it still makes me think of little green men and covert government conspiracies. But of course in the context means unfinished objects. Somehow those silly little things reproduce like rabbits around here. Last night I pulled out the first project I ever pieced and never quite got around to finishing. In fact, I even gave away several blocks a few years back so it will remain as an unfinished reminder of my progress over the past four years.
Then of course there is Seuss. Ah Seuss. I meant to finish it by the end of August and give it to my four year old as a birthday gift. Well it is January so I guess a Christmas gift is out of the question too (at least for 2012…2013 still looking plausible). But miracle of miracles I pulled out my progress and I actually finished one side of the sashing, so maybe just maybe I will be able to finish it before too long. Super S (my four year old boy) told me that he and his younger brother I man cannot wait for me to finish it so they can snuggle up underneath it. And even with all that motivation it plagues me.
Mostly because I’m not following a set pattern at this point. So I’m trying to precisely calculate measurements and that always makes my head hurt and my motivation go out the window. But three more sides to go and the top is finished. So I will continue to plug away.
Which brings me to the Scrappy Trip Along. After playing quilts for an afternoon I found the arrangement that I liked. And then my kids decided to rearrange them for me and I haven’t gotten around to trying to figure it all out again. But here was my finished arrangement.
So hopefully I will be able to piece that together and move it on along. Happy Wednesday! I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday because well it is fun 🙂
