Therefore we are pretending that never happened and moving forward swiftly to Rhonda's Finish-A-Long first quarter linky party. I made my list deliberately short when I signed up to this deal. I thought I had a better chance at success, more fool me! But it isn't all failure because I do have a finish. Time to revisit what I thought I would be able to accomplish.
1. Finish Emily's quilt. Fail!
It is almost finished, but almost in a finish-a-long is like close not counting except in horseshoes and hand grenades.
2. Piece my Brit Bee blocks and turn them into a quilt. Fail!
Not a thing done here other than get them out and admire them periodically.
3. Do something, anything, with my Farmer's Wife blocks. Despite the wonderful FW party Sunni has been having this is a - Fail!
Not sure but was sort of hoping that if I left these in a dark corner some helpful elves might have come and turned them into a quilt one night out of the kindness of their hearts.
4. Piece and complete my Terrain HST quilt. Success! Phew!!
This was my one and only success but I count it as a good one because I love this little quilt.
5. Get going on either my Favourite Fabrics quilt, my HR Fan Club quilt or my For the Love of Birds quilt. Fail(ish)!
Well, I never indicated that I would finish anything here really, but just put it in with a wish and a prayer. But I have accumulated enough Heather Ross fabric to proceed with plans for a quilt when time allows. I have started the Birdie quilt, and lots of my Favourite Fabrics went into my Stained Colourful quilt so I feel like despite not having a finish I have made lots of progress. And I am well set up for the next quarter with things started.
In that original first quarter post I talked about a swap I was going to be involved in and Mouthy Stitches was formally announced, launched and brought to a successful conclusion but in the spirit of the FAL I do not think that really counts as a completion. Nor does the fact that I told you I was in the FTLOS swap, which I also successfully completed. But I am mentioning them here just to say - despite the epic fails above - I have been busy and done a lot. Honest!
