Elm Street Quilts, and decided this was what I needed to finish up some of my small UFO's. Today I decided to look through my two boxes of smaller UFO's to see what I wanted to finish this month. I knew it the minute I saw it, this table topper has been a UFO for so long I don't even remember when I started it. All it needs is the border, but the border is a scalloped one that has to be appliqued onto the background border. It probably won't take long, the prep work will take longer than the actual work.

I know that most of us probably have several ufo's in our sewing rooms. I know that I do. Not only do I have quilt ufo's I have knitting ufo's, stitchery ufo's and wool applique ufo's. Over the holidays I did some cleaning in my sewing room and was really amazed at the number of ufo's I had and the different kinds. My goal this year is to get them finished, at least some of them. One month into the new year and I have finished one quilt, this quilt has been in my finished but not quilted stack for at least 10 years. I had just never gotten around to getting it quilted. Leisa did a great job quilting it, but I hope my piecing skills have improved some since I made it. Some mistakes just don't quilt out. It is a pattern from Pat Wys at Silver Thimble.

Today was a snow day, the second one in two weeks. Snow days don't bring the dread that they once did, you knew if you had a snow day you would have to make it up later in the year. No More, we now have digital learning days. Students have online work to do and if we don't have a classroom we have to watch training videos and take a quiz. Did that first thing this morning then headed to the sewing room.
I decided to work on the snowball blocks for the
Temecula Quilt Company scrappy snowball sew along. I was a week behind and wanted to get caught up. I am using fabrics from my stash for
the snowball blocks. Each week you should make 8 light blocks and 8 dark blocks.
After finishing my snowball blocks I finished up my flying geese for ORL by Bonnie Hunter. One good thing about making this after all of the steps have been published you can skip around. I decided to make all of the flying geese at one time. Mine are cheddar and brown with neutrals. Only thing left is to trim them up. Hopefully can do that tomorrow, another SNOW DAY.

Now for the I am in love part, I am so excited to have discovered this starch, actually I didn't discover it my friend Margo do. She had Publix order her a case, I am so glad that she did. I purchased one bottle from her, and I already know that I will be getting more. Absolutely love it. This is what I used when cutting and pressing the pieces for Clue 1 of ORL from Bonnie Hunter. This made the cutting and sewing so much easier.
