No excuses

This quilt still isn't finished and there's no excuse for it.  About three weeks ago I thought "one good week and I'll be done", but then what happened?  I didn't quilt at all, evening after evening.  I've got a whole heap of justifications for this, some pretty good and some pretty blooming poor, but I don't really know why I didn't just get on with it.  


I figure if I put it up here and say out loud that it could be done in literally one or two days, I might drum up some motivation.  I have just one round of little squares to get through, and some of those are already done, then a binding.  

So I am linking up with Slow Sunday Stitching and publicly announcing my intention that by this time next week I will, at the very least, be stitching down a binding.

Good luck keeping with your plan. I find it very easy to avoid doing what I need to do. That's usually when I start cleaning -- at least the activity makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something.

Yes...it is time to get this one done! I have several UFO's in the same boat!

It must be something in the air. I too have not been in the mood for hand work at night the last couple of weeks. Wishing you luck on finishing this so you can be stitching down binding next Sunday.

Maybe you are sad that it is coming to the end of this wonderful project? I sometimes drag my feet towards an ending.
Maybe stitch on something else until this one calls you back?
Enjoy your stitching!

I try to concentrate on the stiching instead of how far a project is along. It seems to help Looking forward to your finish.

Maybe you're just not ready to let go of it? Anyway, now you really will get it done. And it looks amazing!
