A little finish!

hi everyone!  well, I have LOTS of things almost finished, but only a little finish for this week.  Hopefully next week will be a better finish week. 

This was a Christmas gift from last year.  It was a kit.  I received it at the beginning of December.  I promptly came home and cut it out and fused it all, and there it sat till this weekend.  and now it is DONE!! 

Pattern by buttermilk basin.  It's supposed to be the August in the series of little penny rugs.  but it just might hang out for a while.  I really like it.  I stitched it with Valdani thread.  oh my, I think I want every single variegated they have!!! 

Anyway, this is #34 for me so far this year.  My goal is 50 for the year.  That seems crazy for me to have that many UFOs.  How did that happen?  But I am working hard to finish.  My mantra Done is Good!  But I think buying the backings and battings are going to kill me!  LOL......

back to sewing up a storm!

You're doing a great job sewing up a a storm! Your penny rug looks wonderful. I love penny rugs but haven't made one yet. Maybe later this year.

Valdani Threads are a treat to use. I agree about the extra expense to finish UFO's, like the wadding and the backing fabric. Keep going, you are more than halfway.
