I am not a worrier. I don't stew over things, usually. I think I must be just the right amount "naive". I just don't let "things" bother me.
So......many tasks probably should come first, but if they don't, the world won't stop spinning.
Examples: laundry & dishes & dusting & vacuuming, you know, fun stuff.

C: 13 quilt tops awaiting my hand-guided meandering -I am keeping close to the two week turn-around :)
D: "Crazy Christmas" (by Lynette Anderson) quilt applique and piecing
E: LQS shop sample: Ring in the New" (by Kathy Schmitz)" for sit & stitch this Thursday p.m. (which I am leading)
There, that's not really too many, is it? I am, of course, leaving off many things that could be on that list, but, hey, not important.
So.....do you recognize this?
Then, see the the stuff in the next picture?
This is Mary H's - a Jo Morton pattern. See the pic on the right, yes, that is cross-hatch stitching every 5/8 inch.
And yes, it took a while !!
This one was made by Mary M. for a raffle to raise money for Christmas for People In Need in Delaware, Ohio.
And on the right, a close-up of the "flame' stitching.
