Had to finish it!

Some times there are projects that linger on and you know they are silently mocking you and just to shut them up you do the dirty deed and turn that UFO into a finish.  So that's what happened two days ago, I drug the project out to silence the thoughts in my head.  OK, that's a little dramatic but we've all been there and of course I did it my way and didn't follow the directions but it is off the to-do list and I couldn't be happier.

This is my version of the-Hole-In-One and so now it's all folded up and put to rest.

Now on to other projects on the to-do list and this one happens to be a fun one.

It doesn't look like much now but it will be a Christmas tree quilt someday and though my blocks are made there are many hearts to add and holly leaves to stitch.  The fabrics are creams, whites and some silver and blues.  Sounds dyslexic doesn't it but in my world it will be perfect! 

I also changed my sewing room around to accommodate my ironing board which until yesterday could only be put up in the hallway next to where I sew.  It is a Reliable ironing board, made for quilting.  I love it's rectangular shape so with a shuffle here and a move there I now have a more functional room, for now.

Here is picture of the quilt binding going on my Tumbler quilt and I only have to hand stitch it down and that is another project off the list.  Wow, this really does feel good, I'm going to have to keep this up, wink, wink.
