It's Not Where You Start...

 It's where you finish. Right?
Considering that I spent the better part of two days
recuperating, I'm pretty happy with how I finished.

 This is my September mini for our Sandy's Quilt Shop QAL. 
This one was designed by Nora, who is one of the owners of the shop.
By the time you read this post, I will have completed hand-sewing the
binding, too. I'll be taking it to Sandy's to add to the rest this morning.

 I actually made this project before I started the September mini. 
I still hadn't sent off the giveaway gift for Marydon's winner at the 
Blushing Rose, so I created this and then got it in the mail for Diane yesterday. 
She lives right here in Florida, so I think she may even have her reader
case by tomorrow! I hope she likes it and enjoys it for a long, long time.

Well, there you have it. I got off to a rocky start for the week, but I think
 I finished on a high note by making two new things on Friday! I'm looking
 forward to relaxing with the coffee group this morning (and checking out any 
new fabrics that may have arrived since last Saturday!) and then I have 
plans to spend some quality time with Handsome and The Corgi.

I hope you get to spend your weekend with someone you love,
doing something that makes you happy. Life's too short.
I'll close by sharing a quote with you:

"When all is said and done, I'd like to know that I 
spent my life well; accomplished something that will 
outlast me; and lived my days in vivid color."

The next Memory Lane Monday is this Monday, 
September 24th. You can share a story on your blog and 
link back here all week. Hope you'll join me!

Lovely mini quilt and reader case. You certainly did finish your week on a high note. Time with Handsome and Tag are truly a reward for you. I love your quote from is something I have been struggling with as "Before I Die" and "Dash" are topics of discussion and I have no personal message as of yet. Thank you for sharing. So glad you are feeling so much better. Weekend of joyful bliss to you dear...
