I knew that February was a short month and always flies by... but it seemed to go extra f-ast this year! I think it was mainly due to our focus on Finishing Up those projects!
This week, we had incredibly beautiful, Spring-like weather...which is not conducive to sewing...not like a miserable, wet rainy day! Because of that darn sunshine, I spent a lot of time hiking and gardening...but thanks to our 'Finish it Up February' I F-orced myself to f-orge on...
Here's what I got f-inished or near f-inished...
'Home for the Holidays' by Primitive Gathering got borders! Now this may seem like a small feat but let me tell you, it took me forever to measure each and every strip and average the length before adding it to each side. After reading a blogger's post about her client's quilt 'waving' in the breeze, I thought I would be EXTRA careful with mine...That last outer border is 6 1/2" for a total of over 10" of borders!...If waving is going to happen, it would be in this quilt!
Now for the quilting...which makes me break out into a sweat just thinking about...YIKES!! I do not want to wreck this quilt!
The Linen Closet Blog' are stitched...These blocks are small...6 1/2" and just as cute as can be! I hope you went over to Dawn's blog and got your FREE copy!
This week I dumped out all of my wool bins and reorganized! What a job but so nice to have it done! Now all the reds are in the RED BIN, blues are in the BLUE bin and so on! Life just got a whole heck of a lot easier!
Inside the black/grey bin, I found a ziplock bag containing bits and pieces to stitch this wee pillow. I cut these pieces out about FIVE (or more) years ago. In one evening, I had her together and f-inished off! Now she is in with the rest of the Spring Pillows! Somethings are meant to be...and sometimes things have to mellow and jell awhile...before they are fully appreciated!
Now I wonder how Nancie Anne made out this week? I know it was a busy week for her (work wise) and she was afraid there would be nothing to report (finished wise). We both agreed that this 'Finish It Off in February' was a brilliant idea as we both got a TON done! BUT we also both agreed that we are so happy February is coming to an end as we cross the F-INISH LINE! Whew! Nancie Anne and I have decided to make this an annual event! See you back here next February...for more Finishing It Up Fun! Now hurry over to Nancie Anne's Blog to see what she got done!
Have a F-UN F-RIDAY and happy stitching! ~P
