Here I am closing in on another year and as always I reflect on what I have accomplished. I set goals every year. Yes, I’m a nerd, but it works for me. Otherwise I would procrastinate. And yes, I have my List for 2018 prepared.
Out of curiosity I went through my photos trying to figure out when I actually started on A Boy and A Girl. Interestingly, I began it on 12/7/15. Two years ago. Time, where did it go? Yes, I fit in many other projects along the way. I have completed 8 quilts this year alone. But, two years. Wow! I have been diligently working on the borders but when I realized it has taken me 2 years to get this far the decision has been made to put aside the other items on the List for now and the push is on. I want it finished. I have a Baltimore Album quilt in my future so I have to get this one completed. Sadly, my fingers can only sew so fast. Also, I have to get up and move around periodically or I get stiff.
I have finished appliqueing the right border. I am currently working on the left. Then the top will be completed. The bottom has yet to be prepped. I am hoping for February 1 completion date. Much work to be done. Time. Give me more time!
The holidays have finished and I hope everyone had a wonderful time spent with family and friends. I know I did. My sister gave me many wonderful gifts for Christmas. Among them were a set of my favorite bath towels and a new tv for my sewing room. I am surely blessed. And my friend Sheila presented me with a ceramic Santa that she painted with kitties all over it. It is beautiful! I love it. Santa is even holding a black kitty. I once had a solid black Persian named Ivan the Terrible. That was many, many years ago. But he is still in my heart.
TIME to get back to my border. Have a wonderful year and be safe.
