I hate to say this but I have always been one of “those” people who start countless projects and never finish them. I get bored long before I can finish and put it down with the intention on finishing it in a week or two. I started crocheting a blanket for myself two and a half years ago, and it's still sitting unfinished point proven! I found out about 3 months after starting that I was pregnant. Then I went full bore on crocheting a blanket for baby. I can proudly say that I finished that one. That doesn’t really prove much because it was small. I think she has already outgrown it if that gives you any idea. Anyhow, Hubby got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I have been wanting and talking about getting one for about 6 months. It was supposed to be my Christmas present but then we decided to wait to buy it until after the holidays. Well Hubby surprised me and bought it for me. I was ecstatic but all the memories of unfinished projects popped up and I was nervous he would be disappointed in me.

I decided to start with something simple. A pair of pants for Natalie. Easy right? Actually it was so easy!! I finished the project in only 2 nights after she went to bed. Cut and pinned the first night and did all the sewing the second night.

Next project was a chair cover for the chair that Natalie’s “big” girl high chair was going to go on. Our chairs have white pads and that does not mix well with a messy toddler. I was so excited and got it all finished and it didn’t fit the chair!! The next night I started all over and it turned out pretty well. I have a pic but I don’t feel it’s really worth showing.

For my third project I have chosen to make a quilt for Natalie. I have been wanting to redecorate her bedroom and this is the perfect excuse. After the quilt I plan to make a bumper, curtains and maybe a sheet. This is the fabric I picked for her quilt and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

Good luck with the quilt! I got crazy and decided I was going to make my kiddos Twin sized quilts to go on their beds around Thanksgiving......and thought I would get them done before Christmas! Um....that didn't happen! Infact I didn't even get one done. Don't tell my husband, but I spend $150.00 on fabric, and don't have one quilt made!!! The fabric is still sitting in my basement with only the fabric cut for one quilt! :(

I'm a quitter too! :(
