Hello my friends,
today I want to share with you a topic that I think, (hopefully) we all can relate to.
Please tell me I am not alone when it comes to,
Yes, I hate to admit it, but I have quite a bit of it hanging about in my home.
I started this 'Grandmother's Flower Garden' quilt three years ago and here it sits waiting to be finished.
I've began working on this cute wool mat for Easter. My friend, Amanda generously shared her pattern with me.
Determined that it doesn't end up in my 'Unfinished Business' pile. :)
The other day I reached into my sewing tote to get my floss and pulled out a bag filled with someone else's 'Unfinished Business'.
When ever I go to an estate sale or thrift shop I am filled with delight if I happen to run across 'Unfinished Business'!
Notice that this end of the tablecloth is finished, but the other three still need the leaves to be stitched.
I smile when I think of the hours that another women spent lovingly working on this project.
The napkins are complete and ready to be sewn. On my to do list! (wink)
I think that the woman who started this would be so happy to see me finish it, don't you?
Now here's the best part. . .the pattern!
I love that it says it's a 'Bridge Set'!! Gosh, maybe I'll have to take up playing bridge. lol! I do play pinochle, think that will count?
This beauty was gifted to me by my cousin, Betty. It's a large tablecloth that my Aunt Viola had never started. As you can see I haven't even begun to make a dent in the hours of work it will take to finish it!
How cute is this skirt kit? Scored it at a thrift shop. This one will not be finished. Just love the fun packaging!
Oh, I wish I could say that I only had those few things in my 'Unfinished Business' stack.
This hexagon quilt is waiting to be added to.
And why, oh why, can I not get back to sewing the rows together on my basket quilt?
One might agree that I am a woman who has too many
irons in the fire!
Just last night I learned a new fun and fast way to make hexies.
Would love an entire quilt made up of these. But then, I'm thinking it will end up in my 'Unfinished Business' pile.
Let's just hope that when my time comes that someone will love finding my 'Unfinished Business'!
Leaving you with a little something that made me smile.
Yesterday when I finished vacuuming I went to unplug the cord and saw this.
The cord had literally twisted into a heart. Definitely
love at home! :)
