The Final Quarter

Right, this is it - my last chance to make a list, check it twice, and find out that I am naughty or nice too ambitious for my own good. But it is all good fun and why not have lots of ideas and see where it goes. I do feel that Rhonda's fabulous FAL linky party has spurred lots of us to just get on with some projects this year, rather than leaving them buried.

And buried is a good word. Because I found a ziplock bag in my toy storage box. I curiously wondered what was in it, and lo and behold - it was a cushion that I started for my best friend months ago. My machine acted up. I tidied up, and it didn't see the light of day again until recently.


Next is a new project I've started as it is the time to start thinking about Christmas presents. Having been impressed with the epp being appliqu├ęd on tote bags in the Mouthy Swap I thought I too could do that. Papers and fabrics have now been cut.


Then there is the One of the Birdies quilt - yet again on the list. But as I intend to give this to someone as a Christmas present I need to get it done this quarter. Or else I need to come up with another gift idea. Wouldn't it just be easier to go with what I've got?!


I will have my bee blocks for my turn at Brit Bee in this quarter too. I wonder if I can get them made into a quilt? Well, I might as well add it to this list just in case.


I sure fire success in the FAL will be my Mouthy Stitches tote for my secret partner. As a mama I most definitely will have this posted on time!


And I fully intend to make my diamond hexies into a cushion at last, and this too will be re-homed. (Christmas puts much more pressure on the actually getting things done bit, doesn't it?!!)


I also have started a secret cushion for a secret one on one swap. Can't talk about that and can't show photos so you will have to wait until I reveal all in a couple months time.

And that is all I am going to come up with. Because it is more than enough and we all know that bee blocks and life throw in far more projects than we ever anticipate - so here's hoping earmarking most of these makes as Christmas gifts helps me achieve my best success yet this quarter.

  13. You know that adds up to 7! That is a lot to get done, Christmas or not. I think you must be missing the sewing time a lot. I am going to make my list, probably I will have this many too.

  18. I agree, very ambitious. You're making me think of what I should try and get done by Christmas, what projects to start and finish. I still have two-three from last year so I should probably start with those. I'll enjoy watching your progress.
