An hour a day keeps the Ufos at bay :-)

Not that I have that many Ufos anymore, but I can see them breed in the dark corner of my sewing corner, just like scraps - hehehe

I like to make schedules and goals, and I enjoy a challenge, as you know, so I have joined Finn's challenge.

I think I will join with 5 projects - not beating myself, but jumping with joy if I finish just 4, and jumping with joy if I finish 5 (or more). I had to think long and hard about that one Finn !

I originally started to hand quilt this quilt, Leanne's House, but have recently decided to pick out the few threads of hand quilting and finish it by machine.
I want it finished Soon, while I still love the quilt so much my heart beats faster just looking at it and touching it. :-)

So, one hour a day until this quilt is done, and then, an hour a day on the next project, which I don't know which is just yet.

Hanne, your LeAnne's House is just wonderful!!! I believe you had that with you in Shipshe? I love the combination of stitchery and quilting.

Joining a challenge is a great way to get motivated, and having that great plan will certainly help you accomplish your goals. The quilt is beautiful.

I love your hour a day motto...think i will borrow that! Except I am going to make mine an hour a day of hand stitching... I find it tricky to sit and stitch at night lately..must be getting old! Cathyx

It's amazing how quickly the hours will measure up to a finished project.

I'm curious how you are quilting the stitchery quilt. I have a red work baby quilt I need to quilt this week and am not quite sure how I will do it. The picture in the magazine has meandering, but I'm not sure how it would look if I meander over the red work. I hope you will post another picture of yours showing the quilting.
