First UFO of the year Completed!

Good Morning

How was your weekend?  Did you get alot accomplished?

I had a good weekend and did get my first UFO of 2014 completed ....YIPPEEE

But first Buttons was looking sweet on the chair in the living room so I snapped a quick picture of her.

And now announcing my first UFO completion -- it is a civil war wallhanging or table topper it measures 32 inches square and I had the top done since 2006 -- YIKES - that was along time ago-- so glad it is out of the UFO closet and into the completed stack!

Dear Hubby and I went out to run some errands and you guessed it -- a stop at Goodwill was in order - think this is the first time this year we had been to Goodwill -- OMG I saw this goose planter and I thought it would be perfect down by the creek with a pot full of red impatients -- and the price on this 3 foot tall goose was $1.49 -- Gotta love Goodwill!   The wings need a little touch up -- luck for me I have plenty of paint.
 And I got this little basket for using as a planter for only $1.99 -- smaller than the goose but more expensive -- I might use this for our Garden Fare or fill it with flowers for the flea market I do in May.  Or maybe keep it-- not sure yet but it is really unique.

Back to work for me today - only 4 days this week so I will have lots of time to quilt this coming weekend
Happy Stitches!

Love the planter!
Do you think it'll be ok to do a planter in a basket for the garden fair? :)

Thank you again for the additional errand you had to do over the weekend!
