Aah...a finished project

I am the Queen of starting projects. I love starting something new--I feel such a rush of creative juices. When I'm beginning a project I work on it almost exclusively, obsessively. I lay in bed at night unable to sleep because I am picturing what I will work on the following day and envisioning a completed project. I have to capitalize on that burst of energy because if I don't, I lose steam quickly. I have an entire room dedicated to my collection of unfinished projects.
For a while there was a rumor circulating around our house that Keith would be taking over said room since I was "just using it as a storage room." I quelled any such notions.

Each of my children has a quilt that I made for them when they were born. I have started sewing each blanket before my baby made their appearance into the world. In keeping with tradition, Finley Lynn's quilt was finished a couple of months after she was born. In fairness, I did finish hers about a month ago and am just now blogging about it. It feels so great to finish something, especially when you have put so much effort and love into it.
And yes, I am currently working on several new projects...
