Diving in head first..

Now that I have started, I am tongue tied. I wouldn't be game to count my UFO's but back in 2009 I joined a Gift of the Month club and I have been saving them. They are actually K.A.R.T.S. (Kitted and ready to start) so I have now plunged into the first 'crate' and began. If I get sick of doing little stuff I might venture into the quilt 'crate', but you will note, I said "might"...I don't have a blog yet but I have a bestie who is hot on my heels with persuasion techniques of all kinds. She just hasn't used the right technique yet but I think my willpower is waining. I am concerned that it could be like my UFO's, I will start it and then not finish. So here I come, giving it my best shot for 2013 and 12 finished projects.

Cheers from Maureen Clare

Welcome to blogland. (I hope you find it worth the effort)
Very pretty pouches.
So, what techniques should I be using... Maybe the direct approach - like some chinese burns until you give in!!!
Hugs.
PS. You can do more than 12 in a year you know!

Hi Maureen, welcome! Even if you do not start your own blog, you can still keep us up to date with how your KARTS are going. I will earn the ire of your friend, and suggest you make a really good dent in your stuff first, then when you are rolling along nicely, that would be the time to consider blogging... take care, keep going !

see Maureen???? you'll get great encouragement from these lovely gals if your bestie's enthusiasm, and yours, wanes!!!! They're great!!!! Your start to the year looks fantastic....I myself am well known (now!!) for my stash of KARTS!!!! so I know where you're coming from! They will be my little 'go to' stash for easy finishes when I'm feeling dismayed!
Welcome aboard and looking forward to seeing more of your KARTS.....I'm wondering if they're the same as mine!!!?? LOL

Lovely stitching. Oh so get a blog- you will love it. Crafty bloggers are the best bunch.

Susan said...

A note from the "bestie" - my enthusiasm will not want, I will keep on keeping on...

Marilyn said...

Lol Susan, Keep it up. Maureen, you dont stand much chance with Susan on your case. Its not a bad way to get to know people who have similar interests to you. And heaps of encouragement comes your way.
