Sunday's project

Today has been a lazy, muggy, overcast day. I did a little shopping at Goodwill, a little bit of housework, watched some Gilmore Girls with Hannah and got my Giant New York Sunflower quilt all basted to handquilt. I really dreaded doing this. Now, it is done and I will have something to work on when I can't get in the sewing room. Yay! So, it isn't really a finish, but it sure feels like one! Why is it we get so hung up on one part of a project, that we keep procrastinating? Fine, I may not like taking the time to baste it all up, but once it is done, back to the fun part! I have decided that I am going to keep working this way. Pick one UFO that has a part I am dreading and just DO IT. Then, I will reward myself with a fun job. So, the next time I get in the sewing room..hopefully this evening, I will work on finishing one of the UFO's that involves piecing..that is my reward for basting this one!

Btw..Dan just LOVED his quilt. He told me it was the best night sleep he ever had, under it. Can't boys just be the sweetest things ever sometimes??

Off for a glass of wine with my drinking/quilting buddy, Pam. Her hub has finally talked mine into taking up golf...all at Pam's instigation. More drinking/quilting time for us!! YAY!!!!


  1. That is so pretty. What color will the border be? I can't begin to imagine handquilting one that size. Be sure to post pictures when it's finished.

  2. As always, your work is wonderful; that is one beautiful quilt. I have had the pattern for a while- perhaps I need to give it a whirl! I hope you are all well!
