Double Wedding Ring Quilted Accent Piece
I started this double wedding ring quilted accent piece at least 9 years ago and I finished it on February 7, 2012! Here is an example of a project that was 95% done and waiting for that last 5% of effort. If this sounds like you, I want to encourage you to complete your projects. The mental clearing is phenomenal.
Each finished project gives me the courage to complete the next and the next. I usually do a handcraft while listening to a podcast or watching a program; that way I feel super-productive.
Declare a season of completion and watch those finished project fly!
The back has 10 eyelets and lots of hidden snaps.
I’m so excited about this season of completion. I have several projects that have been left undone for years. I started this dress for Luba for her sweet 16th birthday using Butterick pattern 6630. The pattern is available at Amazon. – Butterick Patterns B6630 Misses’/Misses’ Petite Coat & Dress, Size 6-8-10
I managed to get the dress together for the party, but didn’t finish the lining or add all the lace. I wanted to have it re-done in time for Christmas 2011, so I started to take it apart in November to re-sew it. I added all the lace and the lining. Due to quite a bit of hand-sewing, it took me a little longer than anticipated. I complete the dress on January 16…after having oral surgery! Luba is so delighted. Her smile is worth all the effort.
Her dress fits the vintage backdrop.
