Temecula Quilt Company had been running a weekly sew-along for most of the year, and they revealed the project conclusion in early October. I started with them back in January, but I gave out in April.
Recently I decided to move this UFO forward. I added the brown bird embroidery to the center medallion, and layered and organized things for hand quilting. It's a nice small piece to pick up whenever I have 20 minutes or so to stitch off another strand of thread -- the hand quilting will be done **someday** in its own time :)
I must say that I'm totally enjoying being retired! My time and energy had been so very scattered for the past year or so -- I've finally regrouped and I'm having the chance to redirect my attention back to my own interests. My UFOs are biting the dust! Once I get a few more things finished up, I'm going to start something exciting and new!
