    Approximately 25 years ago I made a travel tote for quilt supplies. Last night I finally finished it. Believe it or not all it needed was one and a half snaps sewn on. Do I get the World's laziest award?

    Carol,

    You know that we can't award a medal to you until we see the finished product. How do we know that you are really finished? After all, you've only had 25 years to do it. :) :-) :P :-P

    Done that myself-took a class at my son's school taught by the headmistress about 18 years ago.(this was in Vanuatu)and picked out the UGLIEST fabrics! Still to this day, I don't know what possessed me (pink and black!). It was a queen size as well! Anyway, finished piecing the top and basted it-and then it's ugliness hit me right between the eyes! I put it in a cupboard and forgot about it for 10 years-and never thought about it again. When cleaning out that cupboard I found it and that's when the real quilt bug bit me! I decided to get out my (by now) rusty hand quilting needles and thread (mouldy by then) and see if I really wanted to start again. I actually finished hand quilting that UGLY quilt (no, it never got any better looking!) and decided this was what I NEEDED to do with the rest of my life! My son loved it (he was only about 12 or so) and used it to death (although I made him hide it whenever anyone came over!) Since, I have never looked back! I also in the process, have PROOVED that there is really something known as an UGLY quilt!

    Tried using my phone to take a picture but its not going to my computer - problem with downloads. When I finish the rest of my UFO's maybe I'll have time to fix the computer. LOL

    Isn't it wonderful when we can laugh at ourselves. I went this morning and got my dentures. I had been without back teeth for 20+ years. I had all of the front one pulled in the earlier part of the year. I have let myself go without teeth and could kick myself for not doing this earlier.

    I'm sorry, Carol, I was just fixing to give you an award. That is, until I read Donna's message. Anyone that would go for twenty years without teeth certainly deserves the award. I'm not sure what kind of award that should be, though. Especially if the going without teeth was by choice.

    Amma, I wish. Actually have no use for it now, there are no LQS nearby, and no classes locally.

    I think my UFO might beats yours. I got my grandmother's UFO about 30 years ago and still haven't finished it. Who knows how long it sat before I got it! Oh well :)
