finished not perfect...

I started this quilt years ago...and it has sat in the cupboard unfinished!
I was just plain sick of it...some of the fabrics are simply ugly...
and I don't know why I would have used that brownish star...
it doesn't go at all...
 ...before I went on our holiday 
I got it out with some intention to finish!
It was sitting on the sewing room cupboard and I thought the 
only way to have it out of the room was to sew on the borders!
So that is what I  have been doing this week...
 ...the borders are not as wide as I first intended!
And I think I need to add another border...just not sure what!
 ...my plan for this year was to finish some quilts!
Finish is the word I'm concentrating on not perfect...
trying for perfect is why they don't get finished
so finish is my mantra!!!
...it doesn't have to be perfect!
I'm not going to enter it in any competitions...

Not the best photos...it is a very dull day here
..and hoping it doesn't rain!
We are in the process of getting the pool painted
and we need dry weather.

need to post more...

I miss blogging regularly....
 ...there seems to be so many things to fill the day,
 that the day would pass 
and I didn't make time for writing a blog post!
...now the temperature is starting to warm
 up and the days a little longer
I intend to make the time for blogging!
