    I finally finished a pot holder....I had to take the binding off three times before I got it on almost right. So much for quick and finished!!!! It is going to be an exchange gift with a non quilter so who will know it's not perfect.

    Don't let it get you down. It is suppose to be fun! You will get faster & more accurate the more you do. Don't worry about your time spent on a project right now. Before you know it you will wonder why you even worried about it. It takes practise & patience. So dig in & have fun!

    I'm tired tonight too, my friend and I made 5 sets of the Hotdog Pillowcases and 2 single ones for her. All Christmas presents for grandchildren.

    I haven't completed a quilt top yet but I know I get on a roll and lose track of time. Pretty soon several hours have passed. For a beginner quilter, I am taking things slow and easy but feel good about what I accomplish.
