Six Months of WOOFA

I'm six months into my year of trying to finish sewing room projects. I joined the WOOFA challenge in February because it seemed like a fun way to focus my effort. July has not been a great month for me because I got distracted with house stuff and it's been really hot which tends to make my upstairs sewing room too warm to work in.

I finished recovering the living room furniture. It feels good to check off this task.
I also finished my Xmas quilt in July. It's King size so I can't take a good photo of the complete top.
This is the first time I have ever sewn on a border with mitered corners.

Here's my WOOFA list to date. I've finished more than half the list! Yay me! Now that I have plenty of Xmas fabric scraps, I'll probably make some placemats before I put the leftover fabric away.

  1. Great job on following through! Everything looks lovely.

  2. Well done on your progress on your WOOFA list - my list is still rather long but hopefully I'll make a bit more progress in the coming months!

    1. Most of my projects were pretty small so they went fast. And I've been working really hard on getting through it. I have mostly been successful and not starting new projects.
