  1. Wow, you’ve had an amazing year of finishes! You should easily have your PhD (didn’t you get one last year too?) You did well on finding time to stitch too. I need to figure out how to get more finishes. Maybe I’m working on too many projects at a time and I need to just concentrate on one, with a leader and ender? Something to consider for next year.

    • Hi Kate,
      Yes, I did get my PHD in 2018!
      I am usually working on at least 3 projects at a time … one on the machine I quilt on and 2 for piecing. On the piecing side, there is the main project and the leader & ender. Occasionally, I will have 3 piecing projects going – but not very often.
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  2. Hi Gail! Great, great, GREAT job on everything. All those items marked done for last week, just the bindings for your PHD, and 100 yards of fabrics used. Fabulous my friend, and thanks for linking up this week. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Terry!
      I know … And, I don’t think he even knows that I was keeping his tab separate. However, I’ve not ventured into fabric stores and he’s not about to go shopping on his own! 🙂
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
