February Finishes!!!!!

Just by the hair on my chinny chin chin.......my February finishes are done. I highly recommend joining Kris and May Britt's challenge to get a project done a month. It's a great way to stay motivated and get things done. My closet is just brimming with projects started. I just love starting new things I guess!!
My Faded Memories is also pieced and will be off to be quilted. I think this was started a year and a half ago on a camping trip. I am calling this my mental health quilt, because when things were bugging me here and there, this was the project I pulled out. The piecing on it is not the best...might speak to my state of mind!!! While that closet of half started projects is still calling me I just couldn't resist this new one!! That Zippity Doo Day fabric really got me...this is only my third project using it!! And then another wonderful Sandy Gervais pattern....think I'm a groupie! Smiles to all of you!!!

Cheryl...I love all of your finishes. We must have similar tastes because I always love all your projects and color choices. And look at that cutie!

Look at that grandbaby grow!!....and you are doing well with your finishes!! I have lost my mojo a bit....can't seem to get motivated to do anything much in the sewing room....but maybe today I will be re-inspired! Cooler weather and the weekend....that should be all I need!

Congrats! I went to join a couple weeks ago but sign-ups were closed. Always a day late. :(

I'm still working at it though (and starting a new one here and there too).

FGood job with all your finishes - they look gorgeous. I can't wait to see your Zippity Do Dah completion - i'm tempted to get me some of that fabric!

Jackie said...

What is a quilter to do if she doesn't have a closet full of projects to work on?? I have one of those too. It gives you choices. I love your choices. They are beautiful. I really like the pattern by Sandy Gervais. Really fun and easy looking. Gotta love the picture of little Luke! He is getting big.

Kris said...

Very productive month, Cheryl. Way to go! Luke is growing like crazy and cute, cute, cute.
