Yes, I met the goal..... I finished this soon to be gift.
 By a quilters definition, FINISHED  means the binding is sewed on .   HORRAY  right!

Yes the binding is sewed on all nice and cozy.... I love the binding!  In a whole house full of girls you need pink stripe somewhere.  Thank you pretty little stash for waiting so patiently for just the right project.

This looks like it should be really cute don't you think ........





Unfortunately I don't love the whole thing. One side just turned out kind of blah... Not as cute as my mind pictured it when I bought the fabric and had a plan.  So plan A has now turned into plan B. 
.
 So I guess that means this gift is once again  not  finished.  :(

How many hours left in today??? 
This really needs to be checked off my to do list today.

I am struggling here.  It really needs something to liven it up.

I'm off to do some creative thinking to try and find the "love it" factor. 
I think i have an idea..... crossing my fingers and hoping it does the trick.


It is a belated birthday gift for a sweet little someone who's mommy reads my blog.

 Sorry I can't show you more.

Thanks Amy for the challenge once again of choosing JUST ONE THING..... and get 'er done.

edit:you can see the blanket finished here
