Just a quick note... I have accepted another challenge... well more a motivator!

I have joined "A Lovely Year of Finishes" at Here's the explanation ( a direct quote from Melissa)...

"Each month pick one project, anything you like (it can even be an entirely new project, so long as you can finish it in the current month) and tell yourself, " I Will Finish It."  Then write a blog post about the project and link it up to our Goal Setting Linky party. spend the rest of the month working on your finish. We will have a mid-month check , and though you are not required to link up to that post, it would be fun to see your progress! Finally, after you have finished your project, write a second (r third) post showing us your lovely finish and link it up to your "Finishes Party..."

Sounds EASY. Right? We will see.

So here is my project: FLOWER BALL quilt pattern by: Geta Grama

This is Geta Grama's quilt... not mine!!! isn't it beautiful
 I have already started this. In fact, I have a lot done. BUT, I have been working on it for 6 months and only have about 1/2 of it finished. So my thinking is this might be a motivator to get this finished. now I don't think for a moment that mine will look anywhere near as nice as this when it is done... her quilting is beautiful... but I really want to get it finished.

So consider me challenged! (OK Girls, stop laughing...I can hear you!)  So consider me Motivated then!!!

Notion Nanny hint: All this hand sewing is going to be rough on my hands so I will be using Neutrogena's hand cream to help with the dryness.

This clinically proven, highly concentrated formula instantly leaves 
dry hands noticeably softer and smoother after just one application. 
Used daily, it helps prevent dry, chapped skin – even under the harshest of conditions.

  ( I don't have stocks in this company but I wish I did!) This small tube is very concentrated so only a small dab goes a long way. Its a tiny bit sticky so it is great to use when you are working with fabric
