All about finishing and a new attitude.

After yesterdays posting and the problem I had with the attack on the comments I was about ready to give up blogging. I was pissed all night, but got up this morning with a new attitude. I enjoy blogging and sharing my quilting with the blogging g world, I am not going to allow one bad incident chase me away so I am here again today...

My horoscope today said:

( Although it may be the start of your workweek, this is a day of finishing up old business, rather than starting anew. This can be difficult, for you might think that you should already be doing what's next. Don't rush it; the more time you take now, the better the outcome.)
I don't put much stock in horoscopes but this one seemed to fit today.

I have been worrying about starting new projects when I had so many old ones hanging around, I made a commitment at the beginning of the year to finish all my ufo's and works in progress. I have pretty much been sticking to it. So this post is to remind me of what I have accomplished so far,
I have completed this,

and this (hand quilted)

and this
and this
and this,also hand quilted
and soon to be finished,
Happy Quilting!


  1. Looks to me like you doing fantastic on finishing up some UFO's. I love all of them, but the last pic is my favorite. What pattern is it?

    Your UFO finishes are all wonderful!!! To finish any hand quilted "anything" is a MAJOR accomplishment!! Are you hand quilting the next one?

  5. Thank you for NOT closing up shop! I need my Janet fix and all your beautiful photos of your beautiful quilts.

    You have been so prolific already! I am impressed! I love The one with the batiks in the little squares--how big is that one? Is it a wall hanging?

    I love the quilt that you used for a table cloth. What a beauty it is! *S*
