Well making a list always helps me and so finding recently that my list was approaching double figures, I took myself in hand. That meant completing a couple of projects that I'd been happily working on and handing them off to the recipient.
But I knew/know there are about 3 that are just languishing. There is very little to do on them but I became 'stuck'. Today I decided - never mind about stuck, just choose something and bind that quilt! This is one that I began sometime..........ago. It was a quilt as you go method, which was OK, but not a favourite of mine. I enjoyed the quilting on it:
But see how I ended up with that orange binding to complement/bring out the orange in the windmill centres? Well I had tried at least 3 maybe 4 oranges, I tried green, I tried blue, I tried blue with a stripe of orange in the centre. This was all over several months. I took it to a friend's place (where we tried the blue with a stripe of orange in the centre) all to no avail. I would bring it home, lay it out again and think 'Nah!'.
Today enough of the procrastination, since the quilt is destined for a local group that provides quilts for foster children or their carers, this quilt could be in use! So orange binding on and it's done, hurrah!
And really, once its on - am I still concerned about whether it's the best match/contrast I could have used, well maybe just a little but once it's gone from my home it's on to the next thing. So I'm pleased

Even better, when I looked at my list again (having now crossed 3 things off since the end of last week) I realised there are really only 6 things on it since two others were just ideas in my head and I haven't even begun yet, so they're not WIPs (yet)!
Until next time,
