I'm super annoyed though. Trash is only taking the basics, dump places aren't taking anything, and Goodwill's not taking donations. I'm stuck!

Patience is a virtue!  Just label boxes and store them until this stay at home order is rescinded.  You'll be able to get things redistributed in a weekend!  Life is too short to be "super annoyed".  After my Dad had his first hard attack(before the clot busting drugs), he had to go from being type A to a Don't Sweat the Small Stuff kinda guy.  It was hard but he did it.

the first block was done in February 2020.   The last block was in 4/2020 and I finished stitching the border today, 4/7/2020. 

Done in record time.  Beautiful!

Absolutely outstanding!  I love the colors--kind of tropical.  How many quilt tops do you have lined up to quilt?

Yes, it'll take several trips at this point. LOL!!! I've got quite the purge pile. Wonder if they'll just bring a truck and pick up...???

You seem to be working so fast! Lovely, girl!

You're right, of course. I just want the project to be done, and I can't call it done till it's empty and there's space for both of us to work on projects. LOL!!! 

I love it!  Congratulations!  What's your next project ?

Well done, Shelley, well done.

Somehow you just made me feel very lazy. 

That's okay, I am lazy these days, stuck at home pondering a 2,000 piece jigsaw puzzle when I'm not sitting on the terrace listening to backyard birdies singing their love songs.

Lynne, ah, the number keeps increasing.  The last time I took a count,  it was in the 40s.  For the past couple of years, I  had been making a concerted effort to sew up my UFOs and was doing a very good job of it.

Then, around 2017, my main focus shifted to working on my heritage scrapbooks.   Necessarily,  the progress on my UFOs has slowed down dramatically. 

When I finish the scrapbook project  (and there really IS an end!), I will return to working on my quilting projects full time.  At some point, I'm going to be having a marathon quilting session rather than piecing!
