UFOctober, Day 26 Progress Report

No FOtos this Friday. No FOs to show. (Plus I think I hate my camera. Or it hates me. Or something.)

Feeling a little grumpy today. I may be coming down with something. Either a cold or quiltitis. (Or both).

Oh yes, I have been bitten by the quilting bug. I blame these people:

Cassiana for putting the idea (back) in my head.

Chief Enabler Amy for making it seem so easy. Also cute. Edited to add: If you want to lose an hour, click on the Bend-the-Rules Flickr group and watch the slideshow.

Kay pushed me right over the edge. I definitely plan to use Mary B's Lifetime Guarantee idea - scroll to the end of that linked page to read it.

I may have Cia and Superbuzzy taste on a Joann budget, but I managed to find some good stuff at my local Joann Etc. yesterday.

BTW, if anyone was confused about the next UFOctober drawing, it will be held after UFOctober so we all have a chance to get as much finished as possible.

I have been making good knitting progress despite the latest infection.

Thanks for your poetry and your patience! Your name (and site address) is on two tickets for the afghan.

I think you're making fantastic progress on your October goals.

I plan on doing a full status report on halloween, and darn it, but I plan on having all my goals met. :) Thanks much for coordinating this, because it was just the kick in the pants I needed!

I made that same homespun hoodie a few years ago. gmta?
