WIP/UFO check-in time!

So, what do you all think of the "new look" to my blog? I've got mixed feelings but think I'll leave it for now so I hope you don't find it obnoxious. (HA! I almost just wrote "upnoxious". Glad I caught that or I may have lost a few of you!)

Onto important information. TELL ME your WIP/UFO progress.  I have to say, I have another finish! I have finished my giveaway quilt's quilting and it will be on its way Monday. I will not post a picture until the owner provides permission after she has a chance to see it.

Well, and if she likes it. I was originally thinking an all over flower pattern when I saw the top on her blog but then, when I saw the fleece back she chose, I had to re-think it. I like my choice but am concerned she might think it a little too simple.

(Hey! It's my blog and I'm allowed to be self-conscious when sending another quilter my work. I mean, after all, I'm at the beginning of what I hope will be the first decade in many of doing this. So... deal with my insecurities. I'm not looking for support. Just a way to get it out so I can focus on being romantic with my man instead of obsessing. -wink- Did I just type that? hehe)

So, I have officially completed 3 of my WIP/UFO items and I'm thrilled.  In Feb. I don't have such lofty hopes but I will work hard b/c the number of new project ideas pushing into my brain is very tough to ignore. 

Have a great afternoon. I'm off to read more lovely crafter blogs linked to the giveaway. If you haven't browsed, you really should. The number of people out there who are talented and sharing their talent through blogland is amazing! Go look... you will be spending too much time ont he computer just like I am.

Cheers!

I like the new look Becky. I've noticed a lot of the blogs I follow changed their layouts this month. It must be a seasonal thing.

Congrats on your UFO finishes! What a great effort!

I finished one UFO this month,(which actually ended up being a complete unpick and re-do) finished the top of another UFO and ordered backing fabric for it
and sewed 204 squares for my HST quilt. Overall I'm pretty happy with that effort. Of course I had all but 10 days of January off on holidays so I'm not sure how much I'll achieve in Feb!

i like the new layout

got lots of progress-finished up the main body of my quilt/month quilt from 2008 and today i started on my double wedding ring that i cut out SIX years ago. and now that i started it, i'm even more convinced that it is going to take me years to complete it lol

congrats on your finishes!

I Love the new web layout. I am still new at blogging and growing slowly - so your site has inspired me. I have enjoyed your blogs, so keep them coming.

Guess I need to go take inventory, make a list, and start checking them off! I find it invigorating to look at things I haven't in ages, with renewed interest.
