Almost Finished!

I am getting closer to finishing these two quilt tops.  It is hard to keep motivated!  There are some days I come home from work and I don't want to do anything.  For example, last night I did not accomplish anything productive.  I have to do lists that need to be taken care of!  Then I couldn't sleep because I was worrying about everything that I should have done but didn't.  
Today was a much better day.  Look below, I finished the borders on both quilts!  

They are sure long and skinny!  I really like how they look so far.  I was able to pin the bias chenille fabric to one border.  Hopefully I can sew it on tomorrow after I finish teaching dance.  (Oh yea did you know I teach dance classes once a week?) 

The upper right corner and the bottom left side kind of bug me so maybe I will have to change it before any sewing is accomplished.  My design originally included a monogram on the bottom right corner, but I'm not sure if I will applique anything there.  I guess that will have to be for another post.  

Also, someone else was being creative at my house today.  After the girls came home from school Big K decided she wanted a new outfit for one of her bears.  She picked out a cute fat quarter from her stash and Big L cut it apart and made a wrap dress out of it.  

 I taught her how to sew on snaps to hold it closed in back.  It wasn't much but they had a great time working together.  As a mom it is always wonderful when they are having fun.

Whenever I get the camera out this little one always wants her picture taken and this is the pose we snapped tonight!  Pretty cute if you ask me.

I hope everyone else's projects are going well and if you have any advice on how to stay motivated please leave a comment.  I'm always looking for helpful hints.

  1. There's so much to do when you have little ones to care for, don't be too hard on yourself if you don't get everything done that you think you "should." Just enjoy them as much as you can when they're little. (They are adorable!) Time goes by too fast!

    I love your twin quilts so far! Best of luck in the finishing, and above all, try to enjoy the process. (Sometimes easier said than done.) :o)
