Some of you may remember my post about this quilt top last year. I started it for my second daughter over three years ago. It was started for a full size bed, then their bed was changed to a queen and then a king size. I bought the gold colored fabric to the right side of the picture for a boarder and plan on using the pile of fabric left from the butterfly appliques for a second boarder to make the quilt top large enough. I've had the gold fabric for at least a year now and still have not cut it. It is washed, it has been pressed. The problem is I always shy away from cutting long strips of fabric. I am always worried I will not keep it straight. But my word for the year is Finish and this weekend I am going to cut. I hope you check out both these wonderful ladies blogs that I mentioned earlier in the post and that you all have a wonderful weekend! Blessings!

I like to visit Mama Sparks World daily. I enjoy seeing what she is working on, she is a wonderful quilter, and what else she has going on in her life. When I leave a comment she always gets back with me and is a good bloggy friend. Yesterday when I visited she was talking about her word of the year which is Happiness. She had chose a word after visiting Charming Chatter's Word Up post. In my comment, I mentioned I should pick the word Finish, and Mama Sparks World encouraged me to do just that. So friends, my word for the year is Finish! I have quite a few projects that are incomplete and I am going to work on completing them this year along with finishing my commitment to loose the 20 pounds I want to loose by April 1'st. My weight on the 2nd was 154.5 today it is 152.5. Two pounds off.
