I finally got the quilt bound that I have been telling you about. Let me tell you....this has been a UFO for approx 7 years! It has hung in both shops waiting to be quilted. I've always had in mind to use this as a topper on my kitchen table, and now I CAN! :)
I tried to do a close up for you of the back, but it was difficult.
So, have you been contemplating your goals for next year? Notice, I did not say "resolution"?? In my opinion, a resolution is to change something or "resolve" to make something different. I am not a big resolution person, but I am a huge goal-setter. Whether it be in my personal, professional, financial matters, I set goals. I've been thinking about my quilting goals for next year. Again, I am not at all upset that I didn't finish as many of those UFOs as I set out to. I know why it didn't happen, and it certainly was not because of lack of effort on my part. So, my goal for next year.....finish as many UFOs as I did this year. I was taking a shot in the dark when I set my goal last year. I had never been unemployed or gotten to spend that much time at home, so how do you judge how much you will accomplish?? I still did a ton of longarming for customers and was more focused on what I was doing, so it wasn't bad that I snuck a few of mine on in between. That's what I will do again in 2012. In between customer quilts, I will just sneak a little something in of mine.
My last giveaway winner never claimed her prize, so....I will have another giveaway. Stay tuned tomorrow for details!
