    :D Hi Everyone!

    Thanks for the sweet comments on my work. crh, sewjoyce, Bev and marcia..... I try.

    These are all in different stages. I get to a point and then something happens that it doesn't get finished the rest of the way. Or I don't like it and put it away for a while to think about it. Then I start something else.

    It is a shame to have so much in the wings. There is more hanging around than that! :oops: I will try and finish most of them this year or get rid of them. I am trying to be good now.

    Please realize I do make many of my niece's clothing each season and most of my birthday/christmas gifts, and there have been many many finished wallhangings and quilts. These just give me fits or something ... I just don't know. But, I will this year, or bust! LOL!

    One day you will look at one of these and think, Oh, I know what I want for that, and away you will go..... :lol: At least that is what I hope will happen for me, so I am transferring that wish to you also! :lol:
    They are nice and I really like the reindeer one also! :lol:

    I am hoping you are right, Shemjo. Seems like too many loose ends sitting around to me. LoL!

    Thanks sewnsewer!

    The reindeer is by mount raineer, littlehud. They have a couple more I would like to try. But, not for a while. Gotta stick to my guns for a while.

    Thanks very much Diana Rainer! It makes me feel a little better that some people are in the same boat as me!

    LoL Sharon ... sorry ...It is a gift already for my son and his wife. This one is going to be an easy finish. It is next to quilt after the quail placemats I am working on now.

    I have thier quilt in progress too. It is a BOTM baskets done in teal and fushia. Set on point. Just four more long seams and then it will be finished as a top. Those bias edges are not easy to work with afer it has been put away 3 months. :( But, I will show and tell when I get it to that point.

    I love the poinsettas and the reindeer the best. Love the beigey backgrounds! We all have so many projects to finish. My DH ask me about some of mine and I tried to explain that some were BOMs and mystery quilts and you only work on them once a month--------- Makes sense to me!!!!!!

    Those all look wonderful. I like the animal quilt and the reindeer quilt. And, why is it you haven't finished these? I want a really good excuse. :lol: We ALL have too many excuses and I'm just as bad as anyone else. I think I have 3 UFOs that may never get finished. At least you're looking at them and thinking about it.................that's a great start.

    You've got some wonderful projects there! Hope you can get them finished up. The first step is the hardest!

    On another forum I participate in, we have a UFO challenge (not just quilts, but all crafts). We are on the honor system to keep track of the hours we spend on UFO projects. The winner at the end of the year gets to name a charity, and the others make a contribution to that charity. Honor system again.

    Hi everyone! Thanks so ver much for stopping in to see my wip and ufo's.
    I started a quilt for each of my sons. That is why some of these got put on hold. LoL! I am very cloe to finishing the tops. The one just needs the borders and the other assembing the top. All the blocks are finished.
    I have to work on them today. So I am hoping to post a picture this evening maybe.

    The quilting table is new to me and I want to play with a couple of the not as important ones first, you understand. I've got to get the quilting motion/process down before I start on the good ones.
    Well I could use every excuse I could think of, but that won't get them done! Ha ha ha...

    Take care my friends. Thanks again for saying such nice things to me today. Everyone can use a little pat on the back once in a while.

    The only time I finished all my projects, quilts and crafts was when I was pregnant with my 3rd and last child. I finished a quilt (sunbonnet sue) that had taken me 7 years, made a baby quilt, cross stitched Easter eggs, and finished whatever else. We weren't sure of due date and 23 years ago they weren't as accurate pinpointing dates even with ultasounds. I stopped working 2/14 and he wasn't born until 3/22. I put the eggs together when I had false labor during the night. Good memories.
    My daughter wonders how I can start a new project when the others aren't finished. Always something new comes up that I want to do.
