Time. Where Does It Go?

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. 003 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.

Happy Stitches

About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
