    Smile Recent finishes & look at what I'm up to

    As the year draws to an end, I gave a push to finishing those few UFOs that I could get done.
    - friendship braid for my GF, finished the quilting on the border and label done
    - gelato Ombre rainbow, quilted, binding done, and washed.

    The sewing rooms are stacked with things I am working on. I usually don't work on multiple project at same time, but I need to move around to avoid serious back and shoulder pain. On the design wall, part of the King size Jaybird Boomerang quilt. On the Sweet 16, panel cushion covers and Canadiana quilt is sandwiched and ready to go.

    In the main room, projects are stacked waiting to get done. And DH's embroidery machine is set up in the family room as he is busy making labels for my quilts.

    I am pumped and ready to sew, and pray there are no family crisis preventing 'My Quilting Time'.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Those are gorgeous! That blue friendship braid is by far my favorite tho. May the new year afford you the freedom to be creative without worries.

    Good for you Suzanne. I wish I was that ambitious right now but I know it will come back to me.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Monique - it's just a recent burst of energy and ambition. Sometimes I think this is how I deal with stress, and boy have I had my share this year.

    You will get your mojo back, I am certain of that.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Wishing you a less stressful new year but hoping that stress isn't the only motivator to such beautiful quilts
