Finishing Projects

I just read Judy L's blog post about finishing projects and totally agree with her. I'm no spring chicken and it could all end today. So, what do I want to leave behind? Beautiful quilts instead of unfinished projects, I'd say, wouldn't you? However, that's probably not going to happen!!!

Here's my thing--I just hate to focus on just one project. Wonder what that means? Do you think I'm bored? I don't seem to feel that way, I just want to start everything I see. It's probably some sort of disorder or something I should discuss with a therapist, do you think?

So, I'm going to try to narrow down my active projects--it's really hard to leave out 10 projects because they are all just sitting around in the way. Tell myself that it is okay to put them away for awhile and work on a selected few, perhaps? I'm using Bonnie's DD--doing the little pink 9 patches in between the projects, so I'm furthering my DD (which may take forever). Maybe I'll force myself to use active projects between piecing instead.

I think it must be hard-wired in folks that are able to get stuff done. Not sure what the answer is for me...wish I had a clue.

Anyone know a free online quilting therapist that could come up with an answer for me? Surely, someone has 1000 hours to figure me out for free, right?

It's Been Awhile

I will just say, "Sorry," and move on. Life really gets in the way A LOT for me. It's been a hot summer and the pool has been very inviting. Too hot to sew outside, so "swimming" it is!!! The tree over our pool has shed its leaves directly into the pool. They are still falling, it's a bunch of work to keep them gathered up and off the bottom. Since my husband is unable to tend to the outside work (or inside), I've taken on this task. I've only sucked up so many leaves one time and had to call the pool company to blow the lines. Got one of those leaf catchers, pronto!!! 
Enough said, here's what I've been up to:
I decided that I couldn't pass up the Sew Sampler subscription box from the Fat Quarter Shop. This was the pattern called Moonshine and they included the fabrics so I was able to whip this up pretty quickly.  I'm really happy with my points on this one. I've added the outer borders and will update the pic soon. I'm act…

2017 is Here

Okay, so truth be told, I didn't do very well at finishing projects or blogging about them in 2017. If I blog every day about my 15 minutes of sewing, will that drive readers away?

I did finish this quilt, so I can cross that off of my UFOs, right? I have gifted it, but I really wish I had a pic of the flying geese going up/down. Sigh. Now to made some 2017!!

I did add a page for 2017 so I could list them, but I have so many years with so many unfinished quilts, it's embarrassing. BLUSH
I did start Bonnie Hunter's En Provence and here's a sample of a somewhat finished block. 

I also played around with Cheryl's Meadow Mist Mystery 2017 and I'm almost finished in time for tomorrow's next clue.  I think the piece on the bottom row in the middle might be the inside of the fabric or not??? I'll check.  All the other steps are finished, I hope. 

I'm also going to try free motion quilting for the first time, so I am ready with my panel and will…

A New Project

Here are my fabrics for a new project that is a mystery quilt on a Facebook group to which I belong. If you are interested, you can join the group called "Just Us Quilters" and join in the fun.
