Sorry I've been "silent" for so long

Greetings from snowy Iowa. We are supposed to get between 6-8 inches of snow before Tuesday and actually I'm rather looking forward to being housebound so maybe I can get some sewing done. I just got done posting pictures on Myra's PhD Challenge..I have committed to getting 3 projects done before June 30th. The three that I chose (it was a dam hard decision) have been laying around for far too many years. So I will share with you the ones that I have chosen.
This is a Santa Block of the Month that I did several (many) years ago but want to add an extra border to it and also add some applique Christmas lights to the border. I will have this machine quilted but not by me. This is the oldest of the three I have chose for the challenge.
The next one is the Quilted Village. The center and the blocks are done but the blocks need to be cut to size and added to the center and then quilted. I plan on quilting it myself.
The last but not least, is my Dear Jane quilt. "She" is ready to have the borders put on so I think today I am going to work on sewing some of those triangles together. "She" has just been laying around for several years gathering dust and "she" is sick of it.
I don't know what my hang-up is with finishing projects, maybe I need some consolling. :-) I would much rather start something than finish it, what do you think about that? Well, time's a'wasting so I best get busy and GET THOSE PROJECTS FINISHED. I will let you know how much progress that I am making on these from time to time...Until next time, I hope you have a "Stitches" kind of day.

Thanks for commenting on my blog today (Jan. 17). Since you are a "no reply" blogger, I was unable to reply to your message. I hope you do try hand piecing sometime. It's easier than you might expect, and SO portable. With eight grandchildren and attending sporting events, it would be the perfect take-along for you. All the best!

My "word" for 2011 is FINISH...I have the same
condition you have, I love starting new projects and never get a whole lot done.

This year I will "FINISH" my projects!
