is a rare commodity in my world, but it does happen and it wasn't at Prom. *VBS* I am still enjoying the warm fuzzies from a really excellent Mother's Day. Hope all of you are experiencing the same. I'm a little tired, but with an ear to ear smile on my face. I was up and ready to get busy at 7 a.m. Turns out, first order of business was to hustle and get the car in the garage, as thunderstorms with hail approached. An orange and some coffee and I was ready to SEW! A quick grab from an overloaded shelf in my sewing room turned this UFO into the project for the day! PLEASE, don't ask me how long ago I started this one! Yes, that bad!! Over the years I've worked on it, or tried, the hang up is that same old, "I don't like it". I keep putzing with the layout and the amount and the whole concept, but it never reaches the satification stage. So....
today I put on my "ruthless" face. I am adding one more row of width, at the right of the picture. This IS the quilt that it will be! No borders, just done! And from the container it lived in, the "overflow" amounts to 9 9 patches and 5 stars, some blue, some red. I've made one more 9 patch and 5 more stars today. The overflow will become a second smaller quilt top. NEITHER will get finished into a quilt by me...watch out donation places....here it comes!! And I have another new empty container...let's celebrate!! I'm going to try for another tomorrow!
Last but not least, my youngest grandson, who could be a poster child for American babies. AJ is turning one year old this week. The year has sped by and it's time for the classic baby in the high chair with cake pictures on Saturday...I can hardly wait! Wanna bet my grin lasts alllll week???
