My plan is to have a visual listing of things that I hope to someday finish. By doing this I am hoping that it will make me accountable and I will pick them up and just finish them. I am pretty sure that this is not a complete listing. 😦
IF SOMEDAY YOU SEE NO PICTURES HERE, I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED MY TASK.
Don’t hold your breath. ha ha ha

This is another Jen Kingwell design called Long Time Gone. It will finish being 66″ x 67″ This is just a sneak peek into the progress that I have made so far. I still have a LOT to do. Her designs are labor intensive, but I love to do them. I am overrun with leftover fabric from one project or another, so this is a wonderful way to use some of them. There is no rhyme nor reason to these patterns and I think that is what attracts me to them so much.
It’s the reason that I don’t make resolutions. I have this HUGE habit of starting things and sometimes taking years to finish them.
I think I get bored with one thing and move onto another. I have convinced myself that it keeps me sane. Ha ha. Others around me are not so convinced.
I recently purchased a few of the Westalee rulers for free motion quilting on a domestic home machine. I turned my practice samples into pot holders and will try to sell them in my Etsy shop. View my shop here
Here is a sample of what I have been doing lately. Pillows and Potholders. I’m having fun, but I also am thinking that I should move onto something that will aid in decreasing the size of my works in progress.
This month is brought to you by the letter P. LOL
2016 has been a busy and productive year for me. I have far too many projects in the works. As time allows I will post pictures of them here in this post. By doing that I am hoping that it will make me accountable and I will finish them up.
I may surprise myself when I see just how many I have to finish. (not really as they pretty much stare me in the face in my storage room.)
My best purchase last year was my QuiltPro Plus IV cabinet by Koala. My Janome 15000 has the home that she deserves and I absolutely love it.
Woah! It’s been a long while since I have updated my site.
Being told that I had a brain tumor in November may have had something to do with my absence.
I am happy to report that I had surgery on March 8th, 2016 and I am doing FANTASTIC. I was back to my quilting 4 days after a craniotomy.
I may decide to keep the (pasted to my head) megga gel look hairstyle.
I wasn’t loving my fabric choices for the Turning Twenty “Seeing Stars” quilt so I started over.
I like these blocks much more.
My hope is that sometime this month they are going to release the layout for the quilt. I am very anxious to find that out.
There will be a total of 12 of each size once complete.
I live in Massachusetts and it has been a very dry summer. So dry that everyone’s lawns are prematurely brown.
Why Mother Nature is trying to make up for that in one short week is beyond me.
What does one do when it’s ugly outside?
Work on something that is unfinished that’s what.
Today I will be trying to finish Allison’s baby quilt.
I didn’t quite purchase enough backing fabric, so I will have to piece it, but that is not the end of the world. So today I will hopefully get it pieced, sandwiched, and maybe start on the quilting.
I’ll be back. 🙂
It’s a day later, but I’m back as promised.
The back is pieced, and now I move on to sandwiching and then quilting it.
Today I am doing some quilting.
Monday night update. I have finished quilting Allison’s baby quilt and have attached the binding. I’ve just sewn on a small portion of it but it’s going to be really cute.
I am at my sewing/embroidery machine 7 out of 10 days. It is very rare that I am away from it more than two days in a row.
It’s what I do.
Today I am working on the quilt “Let it Snow” I sandwiched it yesterday and did the simple quilting today. All I have left to do is the binding and then it can go out for the fundraiser on the 17th of October.
I’m off to work on the binding before I lose the desire to continue.
See you later. 🙂
Here is the finished quilt.
