Week Night Progress

This is what I’ve been slowly working on during the weeknights this week:

darning Mike's mitten

My brother gave me his favorite mittens to darn, since one of them had a hole near the fingertips and a big hole in the thumb. I’m not a big fan of darning because I don’t really know how to do it, especially with such a big area that doesn’t have much yarn/thread left to pull back together. I usually just make it up as I go along. He gave these to me a couple weeks ago, and I forgot about them! (sorry Mike!) They will be in the mail this afternoon.

I have resolved to not start another quilt this year until I finish the unfinished ones in my house. To keep up with that resolution, I send three quilts to a machine-quilter friend of mine a few weeks ago. I sewed the binding onto my Darla quilt last Sunday, and I’m trying to get the binding hand-sewn onto the back by the weekend.

If I get that binding finished in the next couple nights, I’m planning on quilting my Mod Girls quilt this weekend, which I’m really excited to finish because I love that quilt! I even have the binding all ready sewn together and pressed, lined up to attached to a finished quilt. I also have a bunch of products to work on for my shop, so you can find me in what Dave calls the “girl cave” for the next few nights.

  1. Getting unfinished projects done sounds like a theme amoung quilters so far this year. Best of luck with getting them all done before you start a new one.
    Happy Quilting!!!

  2. Great resolution…I’m going to get two back from the quilter next week…I probably should finish a few things too…it seems I have several things really close to being finished!

  3. I fINALLY started free-motion quilting last week-end and now finishing quilt tops is my obsession! Terri – you truly make the most feminine quilts ever. That was the reason I first started reading your blog!

  4. Way to keep yourself in line with your WIPs!!! I’m really bad about that, too. I’m impressed you can darn mittens. I wouldn’t have a clue how to do that!

  5. Congrats on following through with finishing your UFO’s. I’m the worst about starting a new project before completing one. Hopefully I can commit to finishing some UFO’s this year.

  6. Excellent idea to finish what you have started. I need to make that a goal for me. I have to many unfinished projects. I can’t wait to see your Mod Girls quilt.
    You are so talented to be able to fix those mittens.
    Have fun in your “Girl Cave.”
