Go. Just go. I don't care how. - Dr. Suess
One of my kids' favourite books was Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now?
Have you had a project on your UFO pile and wake up one day to say NOW, get it done!
This might have had something to do with it.
Yes, there is snow. Snow is a great incentive to finish off projects of Christmas's past.
So, yesterday, I pulled out my Christmas Tree Skirt.
I bought a kit in a January clearance at Connecting Threads. The selvedge says that the fabric is from 2009, so that was probably 2010. I got the blacks pieced one year. Then Christmas came, and it went into the hold pile. Sometime later, I put the top together. Then Christmas came and it went on the hold pile. The back went missing. It has been on my UFO list for my quilt group THREE times.
I ironed everything yesterday, pieced the back and made the binding.
See, nice bias binding, I made yards of it. It still needs to be folded, but it is made.
Today, I have found a piece of batting, my pins and my masking tape. The floor in the spare room is free of any debris. I should have it basted in a short time. I think the quilting will be cross hatching, simple and quick. After all, it is basically a quilt for the cat to sleep on.
This isn't my current batch of kittens. The tree isn't up yet. I have until Sunday to finish this!
