A Project Five Years in the Making!! It's DONE



Well it has been 5+ years in the making but I finished my Calendar Project yesterday! I remember when I made the first one- June- I thought, "Oh I will make one of these each month and then in a year I will have a nice calendar to hang in my office." Well, life happened like it always does and the project got set aside- but that doesn't matter now because it is finished!!
I laid them all out at work today and I realized I really like them all- I think January and October are my favorites though. These patterns were all freebies from Erica Michael's, she also has some other sets that are free too. You can find the patterns here. And helping me finish this project was....

My New Sewing Machine!!! Around October last year my old machine bit the dust, I was sewing on a baby quilt and it just quit working. When we took it into the shop we found out it was going to cost a lot more than what the machine was worth to fix it. So last week I went and got an Elna 6200- I love it! It stitches very smoothly and quietly. After reading reviews online I found that it was a good quality machine- hopefully it gets me through many happy years of stitching!

Fantastic finish... I've just read some of your older posts, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the green quilt you finished last year - that's inspiring me to pull out some quilting today

I just found your blog from the Sew Beautiful blog...it was the "dogs" that beckoned me! Great job finishing the projects... I have one stocking half finished, and 15 crosstitched blocks for a quilt still waiting! I now smock and can't stop! I read many of the entries trying to figure out what that clear jar with thread was all about...finally found the meaning of Useless Fun! but the link is no longer! Happy Crafting!
