Default Hi from Wisconsin

Hi - I’m here for inspiration and motivation! I’ve been sewing since I was a kid. Much of that time was at my grandmothers house - her Nickname for me was Stringbean. She was so supportive of my sewing. In fact, I was the only grandchild listed in her will - she left me her machine and sewing supplies. My problem is, I have a hard time finishing what I start! I have a top that I started for my son years ago, and he’s now a teenager - I Need to get it done for him before he’s grown! ��

Welcome from Oklahoma. We have a post here about finishing UFO's (unfinished objects). There is great inspiration to get them done.

Welcome aboard!

Timing is everything. I have a number of tops that didn't get done in time for my son -- but I'm hoping they will for the grandchild! Since son is 30 and grandchild is on the way, I'm running out of excuses.
