A small finish

Remember my new year's resolution for 2009? It reads: I'll make what I love... and finish what I start. I solemnly promise I won't add anymore UFO's to my list! 2009 is all about finishing whatever I want to start! Looking at my list of WISPs, there are two quilts I started this year I should finish before we write 2010: the Sugar Camp Quilt and the Sister's Choice. The first is still at the "the blocks are done" stage, and need some serious focusing, but the second should be done in just a few hours work - priority no. 1 over the next evenings!!! I'd also like to finish the Flannel Stars, but this was a project started in 2008 (or was it 2007?), so I won't feel too bad about leaving it for a while ;o)

So even though I have more than enough to keep my fingers busy, I have been needing something I could finish quickly. When I got my hands on the pattern for this little needlebook I just had to make it:

Cute, right? It's a Gail Pan design, I used my favorite fabrics from the Cross Country Quilter's collection by RedRooster for the cover and pocket - and some Moda for the lining. I'm very happy with it - and can't wait to start using it :o) See the scissors in the second pic - I got them from my friend K for my birthday - aren't they pretty?

Now back to those quilts! Hopefully I can show a large finish soon.

Nydeleg nålebrev. Det er eit must å dille med slike småting innimellom større prosjekt :)
