A quick finish


A tea towel applique made from a kit I bought at our local Quilt Show. Took about 1/2 an hour start to finish! My kind of project.

Today was Bill's second shot in the retina. Then spent a few hours doing housekeeping chores. Needed to do a quick finish project just because. Next I need to do the checkbook balancing/computer work and then I'm going back up to spend some time appliqueing on the wall hanging.

Gratitudes:
1. Got the house cleaned so after tomorrow I can relax and quilt for a few days.
2. Being greeted by the dogs after our trip into town this morning -- nothing like a dog's greeting -- they make you feel like you've been gone a long time and they really missed you!
3. Getting my Christmas shopping list made out and knowing what I need to buy to finish it off.

I just love your towel. When you do small projects like that it makes you feel that completion'victory'. Everyone needs that especially when tackling big projects.

Your leaf season is really nice. Your applique is soo cute. Sounds like you had a day of catching up on things that aren't all that fun to do.

sometimes it helps to be able to get a small, quick project done in between the larger things--keeps your interest up but without that huge time committment. I get bored when things drag on and out--bet I am not the only one either.

A finish is a finish in my book...no matter how quick it is! Be proud and take it! :oD A beautiful tea towel that will look wonderful in that log cabin of yours, I'm sure. :o)

Leaf Season is just stunning. I would never have thought of using that setting block with the leaves, but it really sets them off! Made a mental note for a couple stacks of blocks in my stash!
