Has this ever happened to you?

Maybe it will be done for next Christmas

Imagine It’s Finished.   Have you ever said that?  Or rather, how often do you say it?  I have a little….okay, I’ll admit it:  I have several mini quilts that are pieced and basted, but not quilted.  But I was so proud of my efforts, I took them to show the ladies at my church’s quilting group anyway.  They are such sweet ladies.  So encouraging.  Totally willing to overlook the unfinished-ness of my quilts.  They even listened politely to my story.  About how I planned to spend the day in my sewing room working on a Civil War dress for someone else, but had to move the bag of fabric scraps Mrs. K had given me and then made the mistake of looking into the bag.  Wow!  Look at this great fabric!  Hey, these pieces seem to go together.  What’s that I hear?  Are they asking me to do something creative with them?  I’m pretty sure that’s it.  So I started playing and next thing I knew, I had a little quilt top pieced together and Mr. Clark was wondering what I was planning for dinner.  The whole day was gone and the dress didn’t so much as get touched.  So there I was a few days later, sitting around the table with these wonderful women, saying, “See what I did?  Of course, you’ll have to imagine it’s finished”.   Sadly, my friend is still waiting for her dress.


About Imagine It's Finished

Howdy! I am a 50-something wife and mother with two daughters and two sons-in-law. And I love, love, love to sew. I quilt and especially like to hand piece. I prefer to hand quilt, too. Mr. Clark and I are Civil War reenactors, so I make all my own clothes, even my corset and hoops! We live in a small town in northern Arizona with our dog, two cats and eight chickens. I'm a little ADD with a touch of OCD and a rather addictive streak. Which means I start a project, but then I get distracted and start another project, and then get bored and start another project.... One day I realized that most of the blogs I read are by women who finish everything they start. But I suspect there are lots of women just like me. This is my journey.

    But they are such beautiful UFO’s and you are so creative, you know my fabric closet well there are lots and lots of UFO’s hiding in there. Does Mrs K need to hold off on the scraps???
