Good Holiday Memories






 The holidays are over and I'm left with a full heart and a smile on my face. My three sons and a girlfriend were home for Christmas, and what a Christmas it was. Lot's of laughter, food, great conversations, and great movies.
I am left with a lot of motivation to finish many UFO's. One of them is to start another Christmas quilt as soon as possible. I was very pleased with the first machine quilted quilt I made in the beginning of December. I knew that if I was to finish a Christmas quilt I had to do something very simple, which actually turned out very nice. Now, that I know I can machine quilt I'm pretty sure I can finish many of my UFO's.  I still can't believe it took me so long to try machine quilting. I will still hand quilt but only the quilts I give to very special people who will appreciate my work.

Good job jumping that hurdle! I love to machine quilt. Sometimes just starting something new is the biggest hurdle.

I love machine quilting, but you know that. There's so much pleasure in getting the stitches to go where I want them and it's also very relaxing and lets me get into my own head and really focus on what I'm doing. Enjoy! Lane
