Finish It Friday: How'd You Do?

I have to say, I'm a huge fan of Finish It Friday! I was impressed with how motivated I was to stay on task and finish my projects on a lazy Saturday. My 3 goals were to finish the little pink/blue/brown quilt I started about a year ago, make almond milk yogurt, and order pictures for the frames in the kitchen. I finished 2 of the 3.

I learned a lot this weekend.

  1. Quilting takes longer than you think. Your quilt will also look better if you start out with squares that are actually square. [This was the first quilt I ever attempted. I didn't have the right tools to get everything cut accurately. It shows in the final product, but I'm so proud that it's finished! A pucker or two isn't going to make the blanket any less warm. :)]

  2. Almond Milk needs some extra somethin' somethin' in order for it to thicken up right. [I'm sparing you the pictures because it was gag-worthy in a major, MAJOR way.] I mentioned before that you'd be hearing about my failures right along with the successes. Almond Milk Yogurt was a failure, without a doubt. I will, though, be trying it again with regular milk.

  3. Pictures for the kitchen...nope. Quilting took a LONG time, and when your husband wants to camp out on a blanket in the sunshine on the front lawn...well who would say no? Not me! I'll be finishing these pictures next weekend.

So what about you? How was your weekend? Did you get that nagging little thing done? Tell me about it!
