Since this is my first post of 2014, one would expect it to be about sewing resolutions. Like last year I was going to have 13 finishes in '13. Yah, that happened. Not!
But I am joining in with a group to try to finish things we have started. No matter how long it takes. Finish it. Not that we are promising not to start new things, not to buy fabric or patterns (yes, English majors, the triple negative is intentionally confusing). I know I'll be starting new things. I know I'll shop sometimes. I did on Jan 1 sale at LQS (40% off everything). Just to also finish something from the past once in a while.
Here's the first UFO I dug out.
I has been three years waiting to get quilted. Three years. I started big-stitch hand quilting it, wasn't happy, put it away, got it out, thought about taking out the stitches and machine quilting it, put it away, got it out, thought about how great it would look if I did it this way or that way, put it away, got it out, repeat.
This quilt is for our daughter, Melissa, and was made specifically to fit a quilt rack our son, Eric, made for her. Geesh! Finished is better than perfect. I plan to finish this one this month. Or soon. Or at least never put it away to ponder again!
