January Take It Further Challenge Update

Well, its the last day of the month and I haven't finished my January quilt. I've been making slow progress but I've really been enjoying it and I love what I've done so far. I wish I could have finished on time but, oh well, next month. I've decided to work smaller and do postcard size quilts, that way I should defineately finish on time.

I have alot of stitching still to do. I need to finish the flowery bit on the top right hand size. Also I have lots of stitching that I want to do on the woman's body and also some follage at the bottom. I then also want to do some stitching on the purple border part and probably also in the background. How I thought I was going to get all of this done in one month, I don't know. It sort of just grew. I'm sure lots of others would get this done in no time. Anyway, I'm not going to stress about not getting it done. I'm going to take my time and enjoy finishing this one off and get ready to start on the February Challenge.

Barbara, I have been following your progress with this piece, and I love it. I hope that you will keep working on it, and show it when it is done, now hurry.

I like to work larger than the piece that I did, but knew I wouldn't finish, or would have all of these giant pieces in my small apartment. So I know your dilemna!

Thank you very much for your comment on my blog, also.

I can hear the drum and I feel like dancing - the soft breeze helps also. Enjoy the progress on this piece and don't hurry it.

Thank you Meg, Sue and Gwen for your lovely comments. I had a chuckle Gwen when I read your first post saying, "Now hurry". I knew what you meant.
