The borders went on the mysterious wall hanging today (cheers!!!). They are only 2.5" in width which is not what I wanted, but by having them relatively narrow, there is enough fabric left for the binding as well. That is a major coup! There is a piece of fabric ready to be put to use as the backing (ugly but serviceable), and I'm pretty sure I have a piece of batting that will suffice.
I am now free to return to projects that have been put aside. My intention is to start on my UFOs and try to get two completed before allowing myself to start a new project - after which another two UFOs will be tackled. Help keep me honest by asking me every so often how I'm doing on my UFO Undertaking, okay?
Of course, the handwork I do in the evenings isn't part of the UU. Well, actually, it is in a way. I was about to crow and say tonight I picked up a new project to do some handwork on, but it isn't new. It was started last month, and it's been re-visited only in my mind. That vacation from working on it allowed me to be a bit more thoughtful about it this evening. The difference with my night work will be that I will allow myself to work on whichever unfinished piece is ready to be worked on. Since most of these are "art" or "near-art" they require more willingness, more enthusiasm than the pieced works do. That's why I've built in a "willingness on my part" factor.
Sound possible? I hope so. Tomorrow I'll have a photo of my handwork and maybe some news on the art (as in paintings) front.
Until then . . .
