I'm Done! I'm Really Done!

This is my last piece for the 2007 BJP. I can't believe I'm finally done! The piece is called "Fireflies." I realize now that it looks very much like Van Gogh's Starry Starry Night, but that's okay!

Me, the last to finish projects, the lifelong procrastinator, the one with many Unfinished Objects, (UFOs) - I have completed a large commitment and a large piece spanning a year.

This project was at times, especially at the end, a struggle. I just wanted it to be over. I asked my sister if I could just do 11 pages and that would be enough. She said that I was so close that I had to finish it. So I came up with an idea, and finished the piece in under a week! My mojo's back!

Can you hear my happy dance?

This morning glory plant comes back in pots on my deck year after year! That's determination!

Today's quote comes from Anna Pavlova: To follow without halt, one aim; there is the secret of success. And success? What is it? I do not find it in the applause of the theater; it lies rather in the satisfaction of accomplishment.

Fantastic! I've still got 2 more BJPs to finish for 2007. Also, I've just added "The Last Knit" to my blog!
Thanks for sharing & way to go on finishing -- before the new year starts up too!!!
