I bought this Jo's Little Women pattern and fabric in a kit a few years ago.
It sat in my sewing cabinet for a long time.
One weekend I finally cut out the fabric and sewed the top together.
Then it sat on my sewing table for a long time.
One evening I decided it wouldn't take much time to machine quilt such a small quilt....and it didn't....I even sewed the binding on.
Then it sat neatly folded on my ironing board for a long time.
Then Christmas projects took priority.
After that....there are no excuses.
One night this week I sewed up a couple gifts for a young friend who just had her third baby....
a reversible apron....
and a Minkee snuggle blanket for her new little son.
I was glad I still had a yummy bar of Lemon soap from my last order with Apple Valley Natural Soap to include with the gift.
While I was cleaning up from my projects, I came across some small spools of thread that I had picked up on one of my thrifting outings.
Looking through the selection of colored thread triggered something in my brain......
Oh yes.....the unfinished binding....which sat for too long because I didn't think I had any cheddar colored thread!!!
It was here all along!
It is now sitting on my dining room table.....
and it will NOT be there for long!
