The Neverending Quilt
About three years ago, actually it's probably more but who's counting, I started this quilt, it is a lovely pattern by McKenna Ryan. I had great visions of it hanging on my wall by Christmas to be "ooo'd" and "aaa'd"over by all who came to visit. Well as you can see by the photo, it is not quite ready for the "ooing" and "aaing" yet. It feels like it will never be finished, there were so many teeny tiny pieces that at times it was a little overwhelming. If any of you have made this lovely quilt, and completed it, you deserve an award of some sort. Occasionally when I am in the quilting mood a little more gets finished, I figure if I keep plodding on, it will get finished in time for Christmas.....I'm just not sure which one!
Having this quilt go unfinished for so long made me wonder how many things do we start and never finish, if we laid them end to end, how many times would they circle the earth.....I know, I know, it's a strange thought I'm having, maybe it's because I've got to much time on my hands today. Wow, maybe I could do some more work on my quilt....well maybe not, I had planned to bake, then there is the sweater I'm knitting, and I almost forgot I was planning to do some gardening.....
