Where Oh Where is the Finish Line??

oh, me, oh my...

I want to report about a finish.....................

Or I want to report about a start.............................

But instead, I must report about more MIDDLES.... 

MEANWHILE - THIS GIVEAWAY GOES ON - JUST LEAVE A COMMENT, AND IF YOU BECOME A FOLLOWER, LEAVE A SECOND COMMENT...  WINNERS TO BE CHOSEN NEXT WEEKEND. 


Orca Bay is getting borders - only one so far...  I discovered I was short of those 'birds in the air' units, so have to make a few more of those before I can put on all the borders.  But I like the effect the border is going to have on this - it will calm it down just a bit...  and give the eye somewhere to land.   I think I will add one more solid outer border in the dark rust color..  this quilt NEEDS some solid for my taste. I really love the Mediterranean look of this quilt.  ... I went outside my normal comfort zone on colors - now I can't wait to use these colors on another project  (no, no, brain, don't even think about another project yet)))
This blue/yellow Christmas eve mystery is in the middle of being quilted...  and I am beginning to look covetously at one of those sit-down mid-arms...  either a HQ Sweet Sixteen or a George.  We'll see... I just need some throat space...  This is only about 25% complete, and someone (surely not me) decided to put in complicated quilting... ugh...you know, once you start, you can't stop.............:)
 Some ordered fabric arrived - yippee!
 A charity quilt got laid out for pinning:
 And the quilting fairy did not come in at night and quilt up these small donation quilts that are all pinned and ready to quilt - wonder where she is????  Gone to Florida for the winter?? Or maybe she went to the 'road to california' quilt show.............she better get her little wings back here.
 And in the middle of it all, I decided I needed to make a snake out of a sock..........

Now, really - did I not have enough to do?????  But perhaps the snake from a sock will be enormously popular and I will sell them for hundreds, no thousands of dollars and support my quilting habit................. good grief, I am nuts... but he is really cute, especially if you roll him up like a cobra!!!
And, on the couch, there, is the hexagon quilt...  the middle of that quilt is a desert with no oasis - I can't even predict yet when it might be complete... photo to come on the first of the month as usual.

................and there are pants to be hemmed today - HORRORS - hems??? I am an ARTISTE - of snakes and such... shall I put in a lowly hem??? Well, I guess I must, unless I want to walk on the bottoms of these pants tomorrow at work. 

Color me completely nuts... 

More insanity later...  Hope everyone is happy and well.

Forget traditional hemming! I've heard of rescue tape (that's for real), but if you don't have it you can use regular double-sided tape. Or...the quickest yet? Fold up the hem and staple it! An artiste shouldn't be even considering hemming. The other option, of course, is to wear stilleto heels--no need to turn the hem up at all...but, if you are like me, the first step in heels will find us in a heap on the floor. I'm sure the emergency room won't care if our pants are stapled--unless they try to put us in an MRI--might want to 'fess up before that! Oh, wait, heels meant we didn't have to staple. (I think I may have hit my head when I fell off my heels previously!)
