Another UFO Finished!


Last night I put the final stitches into the binding of my version of Celtic Solstice. Since I left all the green out (as called for in Bonnie Hunter's directions), I'm calling it Auburn Solstice. I've been working on the binding a bit every evening. Don't you love the feeling of finishing a big project? This is my THIRD UFO finish for the year! I thought I'd be too busy with Hexie Love to work on, let along finish, UFO's. But by setting aside just an hour or so a day, it's amazing what I been able to accomplish.

I have the quilt on a bed here for now, but it will eventually live at the lake. The quilt on the wall is an art quilt I made years ago using lots of ugly neck ties.

This morning I finished stitching together the hexies for the May BOM. Then I prepared the motif for appliqué, AND I prepared a few more parts of Odyssey for appliqué. Guess what I'll be doing later today? :) I love appliqué!

We have another beautiful day today. The rain is coming back tomorrow for a few days. So I'd better get out for a walk while I can. Maybe later I'll decide which UFO is next up for completion - I still have several to pick from...
