Is it a UFO!

Recently I was tempted by a very nice friend (FIONA BUBZRUGZ )to join her in a little  SAL. I promised myself....no more! But......yes there is that word.....BUT! I have loved this project for years and even bought the book....shame to waste says dear friend!
So I thought a bit of a browse couldn't hurt...right? Wrong! Inside I found these.....
Seems I had begun before! Well....says I there won't be any of that fabric left! I dove into my drawer for allocated project fabric and....yes....found this! Is this a SIGN?
So technically this is a UFO....agree? I feel duty bound now to finish it....wouldn't you? Guess we are having a little SAL after all my friend lol!
However I am remaining on track diligently to finish my Baltimore borders.

2 swags to go....4 corners and 3 borders worth of hearts.....slowly but surely I am getting there! I'm challenging myself not to do anything else until this top is done!
Last post I mentioned our birthday High Tea. I made Robyn a mini hexie quilt.
Robyn seemed to like it...
I do love those teeny hexies!
Loving my current art project too....an old ute I photographed at the historic Hebel Hotel. I have been hanging out to get it down on paper.....its a few days work already and still a lot to go....rust! Oh how I love rusty old things!

Our friend CHOOKY has inspired lots of us to get fitter and take better care of ourselves. My Yoga mat and I are very good friends but of late my visits though regular have been a bit fleeting. You can see she is well loved.
I decided that I needed to be a lot kinder to myself and stay on my mat longer with a better quality practice. So I have. We are spending lovely time together almost every day and I feel so much better for it.....why do we avoid what we need the most? Thanks Chooky for jump starting my flagging motivation!
Be a little kind to yourself too. I'm off for a wander up in the bush!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. Lovely UFO, and your Sal will be fabulous, I quilted that one a few years back for one of my customers. Good to keep the dust off the Yoga mat! Happy stretching, breathing and stitching!

  2. I have the same UFO. I did all the stitcheries years ago and never managed to piece the together. Now I need to choose fabrics. I have so many quilts to finish with a box full of stitcheries. Love your mini hexi quilt! Remember to polish all your chakras....must get back to that.

  5. Well it would be shame not to work on that lovely ufo seeing you had stsrted it lol. And to find the fabric is definitely a sign. Your mini hexie quilt is just gorgeous. Lucky Robyn. And love your old ute - you have done wonders. And wouldn't it be lovely stitched as well

  6. Your Gardener's Journal UFO was meant to be worked on again, wasn't it......even if you had forgotten all about it! I really like your rusty old ute.

  7. I had to laugh at you finding the project already started. I have found some that I do not remember starting before and wonder where my brain was at the time!!

  9. Oh yes, as a UFO, it MUST be finished! No need to feel guilty. Now that I've worked with half inch hexies, the one inch seem ginormous!! Love the littles the best. I'll be working on Baltimore Album swag borders very soon. Any hints or tips?
