Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Proverbs 31:30

How do you tame your sewing/quilting beast? Does it tend to grow and flow out of one room and begin to take over the whole house? While attempting to tame the Beast this summer, I realized I have a shameful amount of "Works In Progress".  So much so that I couldn't even bring myself to count them, yikes! I just didn't want to know the exact number but I do want to make those WIP's shrink to just one or two, maybe even three. So what do you do to get the WIP numbers down?

It's back to those projects to try and get one more finished. I'll let you know how I do on this and show you what I complete.
Until next time....Susan

May they sing of the ways of the Lord, for the glory of the Lord is great. Psalms 138:5

Sometimes you just have to hold your breath and jump in with both feet. That is what I am doing today. I am jumping in with both feet, getting really wet in blogland. Hope I can swim through all the blogginess that is making my head hurt!  If I start to sink I hope someone out there will come to my rescue. I have so far found those in blogland to be sooo friendly and nice. I look forward to getting to know fellow quilters out there. Well that is enough blogging for today........
