Golf Balls and Twirly Balls

I've finished stitching in the ditch on my twirly ball project and have started doing some outline stitching using my walking foot.  As I work father out from the center, I’ll move from my Janome to my Handiquilter.  I think the first stitch is always the hardest.  Once started, these projects usually gain momentum. 

We get lots of golf balls in our yard.  This probably is about a third of what we had accumulated.  I took these to the gathering of quilters I sew with every Tuesday.  One of our members is a golfer and she gladly took them off my hands.  If she digs deep enough in the bucket she will even find a pink one.

Yes, sometimes the first stitch is the hardest for me to take. Once I commit the project gets done faster. your golf bucket treat is so good one!

You must live on/near a golf course? My Dad always searched for golf balls in his course's pond ... as a child of the Depression, he was always on the hunt for a bargain ... and free golf balls was too much of a bargain for him to pass up. And he enjoyed getting out early in the morning, when the course was empty ... so nice and peaceful.

Agreed, getting started is the hurdle! Looking good:)
