1 finished project and a really old UFO

Well here it is the last week of Jan 2013. what a month it has been,,
It was a good week this week even with the bitter cold, my new winter woollies made a big difference in how I handled the cold, one moring it was -30C with the windchill!!! I got a full week in at work with 2 hrs overtime and that will help the pay cheque that is for sure.
As for sewing I have managed to get my woolie top done!
 So my total amount sewn so far  from stash is 10 meters . that is the amount I hoped to get done for this month, as for new purchases I have been good, no new fabric for personal sewing, I did go to fabricland today to buy basting spray , more on why later in this post, and I bought to rements of a 1/4 meter to make potatoe bags for market this year.
Now here is the UFO I am talking about in the title of this post. This quilt was started 4 maybe 5 years ago, It has been so long that I cant remember !
It is a quilt that I started and had some really bad free motion stitching , did about 1/3 of the quilt on the one side and just gave up on it,
I know these are not the greatest pics but I hope it gives you some idea of the mess,I have done some reading and have watched a number of u tube videos on quilting and have decided to try spray basting the quilt and then will re stitch the quilt, been praticing free motion and I hope that I will have better results this time,,, but before I get to do this basting I have to rip out all the stitches that I have all ready done, ( it was pin basted ,and have removed them).. I think this is going to take abit to do, as I had sew all the squares 6 inches in rows and that will also have to be ripped out, my poor seam ripper is going to get a good work out !!
well that is all for now , Happy sewing to all
