Today I started my first blog.... I am not a good writer so bear with me.  I am starting this blog because I want to follow along with the Free Motion Quilting Project and you need a blog to link your pictures so others can see your progress.  The challenge is UFO'S and I have quite a bit of them, for one reason or another I have not finished these projects.  Some are a bit of boredom, others a stumbling block with my skill level, the rest will be determined when I get them out.  You may wonder at my email address...p8ntingmom.   I decided one day that I wanted to learn to tole paint, so I bought a book and taut myself to paint.   That is about the time the Internet became available to  the mainstream.  I learned to sew as a child and have been crafty ever since.

So in to my UFO...l started this punched rug quite some time ago, years, and thought this is a good UFO, it's practically done.  Well I remembered why it's a UFO. I ran out of one color of yarn.  Luckily one of the colors had the tag on it still and I was able to buy it online.  So the punching is done, now I just need to sew the binding.

One of my other reasons for having so many ufos is that I like to work on multiple projects at once. Some for the couch, some for the sewing machine and some for travel like dr apps, waiting rooms etc.
That is enough for now let me get to the picture and design of my blog now...


  1. Welcome to the UFO site and to blogging. I look forward to seeing more of your projects.

  2. Hi Kristin... you and I are on the exact same path as I started both today too! Good luck ;-)

  3. Welcome Kristin! I too am a relatively new blogger (June, I think), and there is an amazing spirit of camaraderie among the quilters out in bloggerville that still amazes me!
    I look forward to seeing your next project ;)

  4. Thank you for your lovely comment on my Mouthy Stitches tote blog post over at Dandelion Daydreams. I came to find you here because you are a No Reply Blogger, so I couldn't reply directly to your email and thought you might like to know.
    I have only been blogging this year and I remember starting out. It was so helpful to get tip offs about these kind of things.
    Looking forward to seeing your progress.

    1. Thank you for the tip, I had no idea that was what my settings were. Now to try and fix it, lol.

  5. Good for you for starting a blog! It's neat to understand your multiple UFOs. Perhaps my brain is simpler...I can only have one project at a time and I love to FINISH it...much like checking something off my list!
