~*A GREAT START TO A SLOW FINISH*~


I have a sickness and it doesn't involve fever or chills I have way too many things started. There are quilt tops hanging in the back closet ready to be quilted probably at least 30 maybe more. Embroidery projects some that just need a few simple finishing touches and some just started. Hooked rugs and locker hooked rugs some near completion and some waiting for just the right wool. Needle punched pieces probably near 100 just needing backings.

I think I could win a contest on UFO's. I think my goal for the next 20 years is to try and complete some of these projects and the one's shown is just a drop in a endless bucket.




Now on a much happier note, thought I would share a picture of the cookie monster. His shirt says it all....GOT DIRT!


Now don't forget to go to a couple of post below and sign up for the free giveaway if you haven't already for these little penny ornaments to be given away on Nov. 9th.

Gotta get back to finishing something!

Happy Trails....Ginger

I have the same sickness, but I think you take the prize. Mine is no where near that amount.

Your little cookie monster is adorable!

If we are all honest I am sure you will find your not the only one, but hey your a mum and there is never enough hours in the day for everything. He has a contented expression that says everything. Julie.C

Ginger,I share your sickness!!! Part of my problem is,while I'm working on one thing,another idea creeps in & I feel I HAVE to do it. Then these things just multiply. Do ya think there's a 12 step program for us???

What courage to admit and show some of your UFO's!! I feel MUCH better. Thank You!! I was feeling guilty about a dozen UFO's! If you are like me, you get really excited about a new craft or a design in your head. You have to start on it right away and then your enthusiasm dies a little and you have to go on to your next great idea!! Too bad we can't have a staff like Martha Stewart who finishes up our projects!!!

A lot of us have the same sickness. We are a pitiful bunch.
