Thanks for coming to visit! I don't have a lot of posts, I only started this blog in November but I hope you'll come back often. I chose my name because I have lots of UFOs (and not just quilty ones) - I get easily distracted. And my sister frequently tells me I am full of UBIs - useless bits of information, so every once in a while you might find those here too!
A little about myself. I'm a mother of two grown daughters and have been a single parent since they were 3 and 1. Now I have a beautiful grandson, Alex and a wee granddaughter on the way. On Wednesdays, I take my 2-year-old grandson for the day, and he is so good, I can still manage to get a bit of sewing in. The other 4 weekdays, I've started working from an office (I'm a mortgage broker in my other life), which is really cutting into my play time! I guess housework is just going to have suffer worse than it already does. The good news is since I started back at the office, I managed to sneak in the finish of a UFO!
Mother Nature cooperated by dropping a little snow just in time for picture-taking (but she could take the cold outflow winds with her).
It took me two weeks to embroider 9 blocks and a morning to sew up the top (thanks to my cooperative grandson!)
The fabric is Moda's Faded Memories by 3 Sisters, a line that came out in 2005. My daughter likes it so much that she would like a crib bedskirt to match, I was lucky enough to find a 1-1/2yd piece that is 108" wide from the same line last night.
Then we had to go play in the snow!
"Brr, it's cold, Momma!"
Most kids carry a stuffy - my little man carries a hammer!
