posted a challenge today which I thought might be a motivator for me... Here's how it went...
Locate your UFO that’s closest to being done, and do something about it.
OK... So that sounded pretty easy..but there's more:
And I’ll be back tomorrow with your next task, so as My Cowboy would say: “Don’t dawdle!”
so that meant it had to be finished today...
Well I started.
I figured... easy peasy, I can get that done today. But as you all know, that's not so easy for me because I don't like or enjoy binding anything. I could have switched to something else, but there it was, staring me in the face and I figured it was today or never. So I started.
First challenge... find some binding material. Since I made the skirt 2 years ago, there was no matching fabric so I dug into my resources and found a solid red that looks somewhat like the red in the skirt.
Second Challenge... Finish it! I got the binding cut, pressed and folded, sewn on and then came the problem. I had to hand sew. Grumble Grumble Grumble. I asked myself many times why I started it when many more future UFOs were rumbling around in my head. I put on a new Craftsy class I just purchased and while I watched the first three lessons I plugged away and after about 3 hours of grumbling... I could see an end to this project.

I wonder what Prairie Moon Quilts has up her sleeve for tomorrow...
And just because I am the Notion Nanny... Here's a notion I used today while working on this project. I love the John James needles. This particular package is the 3/9 Quilting needles. The thing I like the best about these pebbles is you can take them anywhere (except on a plane) and they don't fall out of the case.
