    You certainly have been busy! All that done this am. I am just getting around for church! (I'll blame it on lingering jet lag, just got back from NZ on Monday).

    How are your sweet minis? Hoping we can stop by this summer for some sweet muzzle kisses.

    Have a great rest of the day. Those beautiful florals won't be waiting much longer :thumbup:
    Oh! You went to see your daughter!! Is everything okay there?? Was she near the earthquake???

    I would LOVE to have you come to the pastures to kiss muzzles! :-D Wait till you see how big the babies are--esp Tucker. He's a moose, like his mama, but not overweight--jsut a tank. Love that boy. Well, I love ALL of them. :D

    Indeed, we did visit Melissa. In fact we were in on the south island about 4 hours from the quake, but did feel a little. Praise God, we decided at the last minute to change the order of our trip or we would have been in Christchurch at the time of the quake. We really need to send out prayers to those poor folks in Christchurch.

    I bet Tucker one very handsome boy! Can't wait to see them all again. AND all the beautiful creations you are finishing up!

    barnbum, sounds like we are similiar in some ways. I like to make lists and check things off with a red sharpie! I keep myself under control by finishing certain projects before allowing myself to start new ones!!! Good luck and congratulations to keeping to your goals! :)

    My biggest list is the projects I want to start "one day" and of course a bargello is on that list!! :)

    You have great willpower though, not so good with that here lol
    These look SO much better in person.... but this is what I've been drooling over as I stitch.
    What beautiful florals.

    WoooHooo!! That a way for sticking to your goal! I would wish I could say that I would have done LOTS of sewing if I could have stayed home in snowbound New York instead of being a snowbird in FL, but I probably would have not stuck to my guns like you did. I'm proud of you. Can't wait to get home and sew once again.

    I make lists, but I am not good at sticking to them. I am going to try your red sharpie technique. I WANT to finish, but move on to a new project to see what it looks like.

    Your way is the way to go.

    Well, two are for a horse rescue place--a donation--they will be auctioned off.

    floral wall hanging--a gift

    Black and white baby quilts--gifts already delivered

    other baby quilts--keeping for now-no grandkids any time soon, which is fine, but whoever that baby will be has many quilts already. :wink:

    horses--two of those are for sale

    doll quilt--I love it, but can make many more, so may sell it. Still deciding.

    Triple Irish Chain--keeping. There is a person who wants to buy it, but I just can't part with it yet. I love the colors.

    Rose Garden-for sale

    three Talk-Abouts--what I'm finishing now--for sale.

    Congratulations! You have a right to be excited because your goal is nearly accomplished, and you are so close to starting your new project. I have just been through something similar, so I know what it feels like!

    Great going!

    Good for you. Think a lot of people are trying to finish UFO's plus use fabric in their stash.

    I want to move right next door to you! I could use some inspiration and some 'bad weather' to take some time off and get projects done. I miss the snowy North! Well you still inspire me even from far away!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    WOW - what determination. Yes, I agree, you should be proud of yourself. And those fabrics are beautiful - what a great inspiration to keep on binding. Will anxiously await pix of the project with those fantastic flowers.
