I Can See The Finish Line, Folks! …And It’s Still a Few Miles Away

Doodle, doodle almost done. I love scribbling on fabric with thread.

I machine quilted panels four and five of my charity ArtPrize quilts late Wednesday. High five, everyone!

Later today I’ll be picking out fabric for the binding and weaving in thread tails. I can’t quite believe I’ve been working on this project every day for the last month and it’s still not done. But I’m getting there.

Check back here later for another exciting post. (Hint: I’m going to be giving away some cool loot, so it will be worth your while to stop back.)

The dish washer is whirring and Abby’s lunch has been packed. Time to sleep. More soon.

Thanks for the encouragement. I’m so tired that I’m starting to feel insane. : ) A nap is on tap for today. Must. Get. Sleep.

Congratulations on your beautiful work – scribble, scribble, scribble…

Take your nap. Wake up and get some coffee and enjoy the last wonderful moments with your quilt. The home stretch is always the best part!

Just reading your posts is wearing ME out! What an exhausting task! Please finish this soon. It’s stressing me out. Knowing that you’re out there in crazylady sewing mode, unable to rest or solve the world’s problems until that quilt is done. :)

Good luck!

you are soooo close! Remember that you’ll look back on this crazy experience and realize that it was all worth it. You’re proving to yourself that you’re able to take on BIG projects and complete them within the confines of a deadline, and that’s no small feet! Great job, I can’t wait to see the finished product!

I admire your dedication to this project with a family and everything as well! I have just enrolled in a silversmithing masterclass to refine my skills and looking forward to another challenge…
