My Stitching Resolution

Carla of  Creatin in the Sticks organizes such fun blog hops and I’m sure this one will be no different.  Although it is set up differently being a single day.  Before I make my 2021 resolution, how did I do with last years goals? (I omitted the travel ones because...) 1. I know of 2 weddings and a baby quilt that I need to finish and I want to keep up with any others that arise. Done although two haven’t been given yet.

Last year I finished all but one block of two different block of the month programs, so I need to finish those.- One is done, the other may squeak through but will probably be an early 2021 finish 3.

Not done, I keep saying one day I’ll find a purple back in the backing remnants bin

(Although she can sew, we took 4H sewing together) it was so fun to work on this together. On the label we couldn’t decide between two Harry Potter quotes so we used both. “It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be,” and “mischief managed.” 2. machine quilt the other baby q
