What a difference a day makes...no rain, but lots of wind, and the mood of the landscrape is changed. Shades of November on an October day. No evidence left behind, Madame Wind removed all traces of those lovely leaves.
And for me, a new perspective...moonrise and sunset playing among the clouds across the street. Pure magic!!
A recent finish. I've hand quilted this Peppermint table square with perle cotton. Got it bound and ready for the holidays. I'm very pleased with the outcome.
And a look at the backing I chose, a splurge for me. Using a whole yard of a new Aunt Gracies reproduction fabric because it goes well with the top, and makes the quilt reversable.
Regarding last evenings post, I am DEFINITELY going to host another New Years Eve UFO Countdown! Several of you have indicated an interest in joining me, so consider it a "done deal". Put on your thinking cap and decide how many you hope to finish up. I'm asking for your "challenge" number again. We might be a small group this time, and we are definitely working in a shorter time span.
In 2008, we began on August 25th, giving us 4 months and 7 days. 72 of us pledged to finish 300 projects.
The count on January 1, 2009 was 256 finished projects...wow!!
Last year we began on September 19th, giving us 3 months,13 days. 32 of us pledged to finish 175 projects. January 1, 2010 found that 24 of the 32 finished 148 projects. The numbers don't really mean as much as the personal satification we each felt about our success.
For what ever reason on my part, we are getting a late start this year...BUT....we have 2 months and 10 days. Choose your goal accordingly.
I will be posting the Challenge on my sidebar as usual, and will add your finishes as you let me know of them. I'll post some additional details for any newcomers. Just let me know you are participating and I'll add you to the list, along with your goal number. Feel free to email me at Finn922000@yahoo.com with questions, amounts or concerns. Happy UFOing!
