I started to pull fabrics for a new project yesterday and that’s when the guilt set in. I have so many uncompleted projects laying around. I know we all do.
How does that happen to us?
Why are some projects just so darn hard to get motivated for a finish?
I have this one stinkin’ quilt that I pull out every time the guilt sets in. It is a mess of blocks, half square triangles, bitty squares, and loose threads from being in a bag for 6 or so years.
I was determined to get this one done. The problem was that I started this 2 houses, 1 sewing machine, and a couple of gray hairs ago. No matter! I’m gonna do it!!
I sat down and layed it all out and started putting the puzzle pieces together. About 4 hours later I had the middle top done, and I just finished the borders this morning.
The only problem is that it is hideous! LOL I’m not being modest here. Nothing meets, points are cut off, boders leave alot to be desired, etc.
It looks like it was the first quilt I’ve ever made. Embarrassing.
You know what I say to that? No one in my family is going to be looking at the points when they are snuggling up with it on a cold day, or using it on a picnic or at the beach, AND I don’t have to put my name on it! HA. It’s done , it’s usable, the fabric didn’t go to waste, and I don’t have to look at it in the unfinished pile anymore. =)
Now I’m going to be very brave a post a picture, but you are not allowed to laugh!!! hehehe (opps I laughed)
Oh my! You have to admit it looks better all scrunched up next to some roses.
Poor ugly thing.
Here’s something that is not ugly! My girls. We attended The BG’s youngest sister’s wedding this weekend. They danced the night away, little social butterflys.
Aren’t they looking crazy grown up? They are almost as tall as me and I am wearing heels!
My sister in law Andrea always makes the most AMAZING desert tables for everyone’s events. She made the desert table for the wedding. I thought I would leave you with some yummy sweets to reward you for looking at my quilt. (grin)
Have a super fantastic day!
