So, here goes -
1. Back, baste, quilt and bind Briar Rose - and then give it away.
|I like this photo better than the quilt top one.|
3. Finish piecing my hexies and turn into a quilt. Must be done. I've given myself a deadline. Seriously!
4. Turn this pile of cut fabric into a quilt. I've started the cutting and it will be an easy and simple make. It will be backed with the spare Ikea fleece blanket and it is destined to go to Alison for her quest for quilts for street children in Mexico. You can read more about it here. All the fabric was languishing in my stash, including the fleece blanket. Much better that it be put to good use.
5. I can't show you more than this fabric stack at the moment, but it will be a quilt in the not too distant future. Another one that I wish to get done by a set date.
And I am stopping there. Realistically I could put all my WIPs on here, but we know by now I will not get them done, so why bother. I have listed the items I must continue to work on. They're for charity. They are gifts. I need to do them and not distract myself. (Okay, the Christmas quilt doesn't have to get done but I would really like to not put it off until next December.)
The past few days have been a flurry of fabric pulling, quilt designing, and a huge pile of fabric cutting for three different quilts. I have ended each day exhausted, because obviously real life is happening too, but with a great feeling of satisfaction for actually accomplishing stuff. I like feeling like that.
Now, if you will kindly excuse me, it looks like I might have some sewing to do. Linking up with Katy, because that's what this is all about.
Your list looks much more doable this time round!ReplyDelete
Great list! I love the solids/architextures mix you have and your hexies are going to be true stunners (again!). Now, get to stitching!ReplyDelete
PS - I was sure the people in the white coats were coming for you when I saw your title. I'm sure they're on the way!
You can do itReplyDelete
You can dooooo it - yes you can!!!ReplyDelete
Glad I'm not the only one with an unfinished Christmas quilt...ReplyDelete
Looks like a great list :-)ReplyDelete
Excellent list. I love the inclusion of the Christmas quilt!ReplyDelete
I like that photo but i do like the quilt more! Good for you for being realistic and doing things for charity!ReplyDelete
Great list. Look forward to seeing the finished itemsReplyDelete
Saying nuffink about the men in white coats...ReplyDelete
That top pic distresses me though! Maybe they'll stop by for me next ;o)
Particularly loving number four thank you xReplyDelete
can not wait to see the hexies done! Really need to make more EPP. This looks so lovely.ReplyDelete
Short list and lots of time to put some additional non.listed.sewing in between.
Well I must be predictable because my first thought was of you in a straighjacket! Good List, you went with the achievable list, as opposed to my "throw all of the sh@t against the wall and hope some of it sticks" version. Good Luck :o)ReplyDelete
All the sewing keeps you out of mischief... mostly!ReplyDelete
That looks infinitely doable - go get 'em tiger!ReplyDelete
P.S. yep. I was in the straight jacket camp.
P.P.S. giving Briar Rose away? Why, thank you! No? Worth a shot, eh...
Wow, there are Lots of great projects. Why you don't join my New EPP QAL so we can encourage you to finish your EPP ;-)ReplyDelete
I also have an unfinished Christmas quilt but I can't see me getting it finished in the next three months!! Love your list and your focus - good luck!ReplyDelete
P.S. It comes to something when you'd rather look at a baby frog being torn away from its mammy and reaching desperately for her before they're parted forever than a quilt ;o)
That list looks very do-able, especially for you, as you never cease to amaze me with your ability to power through your projects.ReplyDelete
I think you're as committed as the rest if us! Nice list!ReplyDelete
You can do it ! Im going to link up too...hopefully I CAN do it...ReplyDelete
By the way - I always think of you as needing to be committed....
Best Wishes for your finishes!ReplyDelete
Those solids are a tease!...oh and...ReplyDelete
....I am offering to adopt the poor orphan froggy.
Great list of projects - looking forward to seeing what you make with those lovely solids!ReplyDelete
Doing your list that way makes it less overwhelming and hopefully means you can show us different stuff next quarter so I like this system! Good luckReplyDelete
so glad you mentioned the straightjacket before I did ;-)ReplyDelete
Doable? I feel like a lie down after reading that list!!ReplyDelete
Poor little froggyReplyDelete
Your list looks great. I want to do one too, but I'm afraid.....ReplyDelete
Was this post supposed to be funny??ReplyDelete
Good list Susan, it may be smaller but is still a lot of sewing! best of luck xxReplyDelete
It's a great list, you can do it. My problem is that I really want to do all the things on my super long list too, sigh.ReplyDelete
That's a great list, Susan! I think i'm going to sign up to this too, although most of my projects haven't even been started yet!!!!ReplyDelete
Good for you! It's a totally doable list. Not for the likes of me but I'm sure you'll do well with so many things :)ReplyDelete
Good luck with the EPP and with a nice short list like this then I think you should be committed!ReplyDelete
Great list, good luck!ReplyDelete
Some gorgeous projects there but seriously, you plan on finishing all if them this quarter?ReplyDelete
I'm going to write my usual 20+ list in the hope of finishing in of them and then leaving the rest untouched! Although, you are a lit more efficient then me x
V interesting list! Looking forward to seeing the finished legless frog :DReplyDelete
Glad I can count on you for sanity Susan! Good luck and focus will get this done! You can do it - I have faith in youReplyDelete
Very sensible putting things that you actually think you will get done in a quarter on the list. Some lists are a little ridiculous I think, more of a shout out to all the UFOs people have. Much greater feeling of success if you actually achieve nearly all on the list! I only like goals that are realistic otherwise I feel like a failure.ReplyDelete
