Open your eyes woman....

In the midst of moving out of my sewing room (insert sigh) I lost my two nine patch borders for my quilt. In frustration I packed it all away...today I decided I would find it!!!! i opened its storage box and started to pull out the borders, counting as I went, then On my  #%]*+^ I found them.......



On the both sides of my centre, grrr I had already sewn them on...sometimes in life we just need to take a deep breath.....and count to three and look again... I would have had a completed top.......will iron all the pieces and attach tomorrow, whilst kid free.....thought you all my get a laugh from this especially Sonia and Khrissy, who I have whinged too lol

Off to the Quilters

My top has actually been finished since... I think it was end October - and I did put it in a post here at the time...... I have been procrastinating as to whether I should hand quilt, machine quilt, maybe a bit of both... but, as it has been sitting here for nearly 3 months I have decided to get it quilted!... so here it is already to go...
.......at least it will then be finished (after I do the binding) and will not end up as a UFO! 

Hope others are also finishing off this lovely quilt!
Happy Stitching

It's a New Year

And its time to get some UFOs out of the way - before you start too many more new ones . . (AS IF   ????) . . .
and 
in case you need another reason to finish - 
for those GDITC attendees - 
wouldn't it be great to be able to show Anni a lot of finished quilts - or if you can't get to that - at least a top????
(You have nearly two months....)


Come on Girls - we can do it!!!!!!!!
