When my longtime friend, Patty, was visiting from California last week, she saw my four finishes from the last post and the fall decorating I'd done and she asked me what I had ever done with my Crabapple Hill stitchery from years ago. (like 7 or 8 years ago)!
Hmmm, what had I done with it? I knew I hadn't ever finished it, so it must be in a box or bin in my closet. So, off on a hunt I went... and there it was. Another UFO! Yikes, will it ever end?
I had a stay-at-home day yesterday and my goal was to get that project finished. Binding went on today and Voila...here it is.
Thanks Patty, for reminding me!
I hope I don't find anymore fall UFO's lurking in places because I have so many Christmas ones I better get busy now if I want them out this year. I have to say that it really feels good to actually "finish" something. And....if you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know that I really don't like quilting my projects. I always use my friend Mary's phrase. "I quilt by check". I think I've found that I can get by with straight line quilting, but don't ask me to put a curve in anything. :)
I haven't figured out where I'm going to put it so for now it's sitting on Mr CnW's footstool waiting for Jack the Cat to find it and claim it!
(Hmm, about 20 minutes after posting, look what I found)
What is there about a quilt that attracts cats?
