Nike was right!

 I just have to "do it"! I set a goal on my last post to write one every Monday. That might have been a bit ambitious since that was October 9 and I've done nothing since. So...

I will start with a few finishes since October 9 and will NOT pressure myself into thinking that I will post every week. I feel better already!!

In mid October I finished my "Scrappy Stars Sew-a-long" with Taryn Falkner on Instagram. I made mine in the potholder method, so when the last blocks was posted, I was able to get it finished pretty quickly. I was amazed at how many people joined this project. There are some wonderful versions! Actually, they are all superb!



When my friend, Linda Collins (Quilts in the Barn) came to visit, she gave me a wonderful little kit to make a "sewing kit". It went together very quickly thanks to her EPP papers and great instructions! 
I made her this little mini to take back to Australia as a reminder of her trip to Maine. 

I finished a t-shirt quilt made from many of my grandson's old shirts. I sent it to his mother for her birthday in October. I have made a few of these and each time I make one, I say "never again". This one was easier because I gave it to my friend Kathy Boudreau to quilt for me. 
I had one lefteover and since it was one of my favorites, I put it on the back. 

That's all I can muster today. Hope the spirit moves me to get the rest of the finishes out soon.
