NOT! Talk to me February... UFO update.

Hi everyone,

I meant to make a video, but will insert some photos instead for you.

It has been a "weird" and surreal month. And frustrating.
We have had no power for nearly 2 weeks now, and can only go online and charge things at work. We are not sure what the problem is, but am STILL waiting for an electrician to come through to see if they can fix whatever is wrong. No sewing, just nothing...

Lucky for me I had been working ahead with PPV and have some blocks to show. Whoop!

Ufo #1 is finished, the dragon quilt, most of you would have seen that one already just about everywhere.



UFO #2 The quilt top is finished for the STAR TREK quilt.



PPV update




And that is all for now.
Once the power is back on, I need to knock out another pillow to sell. And then I can get back to the rest of my goodies.

UFO #3 is going to be FBQAL2, I want to get that one finished in March, including the quilt top. So that I can write up my words for the posts. And have everything ready to go for September. I will only finalize the blog posts, once I have Amber's & Jennifer Rowles tested blocks (which I only need by August)and Kristi's blocks from her tester.

Have a happy crafty week everyone.

Oooo, not having electricity is not good! I hope they can find the cause and fix it soon!

Your pics are wonderful though. I absolutely LOVE that dragon quilt. And the Star Trek quilt is also great.

I like the vintagey fabric you are using for the PPV quilt. Very nice.

Thank you Suzie.
Out power is back on, when the electrician opened the board, all the wires were sparking, he said we were lucky that our house didnt burn down. Lights in the sewing room is still off, but the sewing machine works now, and with lamps, I can get some work done now. YAY!

No power for two weeks! Oh my goodness, I hope they get that fixed soon!

The dragon and Star Trek quilts are just amazing and OF COURSE I love your PPV blocks.

FBQAL2, yay!

Finally got power back, it has been rough. Something is still wrong with the lights in the sewing space. Had some lamps on and it worked well enough for now. Now I can get back to sewing. whoop.

I really love the fabrics you are using for yur PPV. And the dragon quilt is so amazing! Did you do that quilt as you go?

I'm so sorry to hear that about your power. I hope you get that sorted out soon. I would be going nuts.

Hi Jewels, I did do the dragon quilt as you go, I stitched all the dragons together and quilted that separate from the borders. I like doing that. So might do that in future.
Power cam on finally last night.
But the light in my sewing space is not working though, nothing a couple of lamps wont sort out.
