I have also been finding solace in quilting but as usual am lacking focus -- but I do have a few finishes to share.
My mini Lazy Sunday -- it's 24 by 29 and adorable
Scrappy Swoon is finished
November Block of the Month blocks are completed -- 3 more to complete them all (by 1/7)
4 more bible studies blocks -- 7 or 8 to go and they will all be done and ready for assembly.
The UFO list is quite lengthy and some deadlines are quickly approaching but I am sure to work diligently and strive to complete those and more to enter 2014 on a cleaner slate (lower side of the single digit range), I have only 13 things on my list -- most are on deadlines so that helps right.
My first deadline is this Friday -- ornament swap items need to go in the mail (started and ready for embellishment)
and a custom Mug Rug order -- tops are ready for embroidery and then quilting and binding
I want to put binding on a baby quilt this week as well -- I've been putting it off over a week now.
Next deadline is 12/21 --- finish star wars quilt (like for real this time), make a new cover for my ironing board and put together an apron for my MIL. I am also responsible for planning the Christmas meal to be eaten on 12/22 -- Pinterest here I come.
We are off 3 days for Christmas and because the family is coming in the weekend before there could be a lot of quilting happen during this time. My first thing to tackle at that time will be the 3 block of the month blocks left they meet again on 1/7 to start the new one but I would like to get these finished by then and maybe assembled (that may be aiming a little to high).
Next up would be the Doll Quilt swap item that I have designed and pulled fabric for but not started yet due in mid January. I am finding some frustration in the fact that my swap partner is showing a limited amount of participation in the group and didn't provide much info during sign up other than she dislikes orange.
I am also working on a charity quilt and want it finished in time for the Jan meeting. (notice how exhausting quilting is for kitty helpers).
If I am able to get all this completed and not start anything new that would have me entering Jan or at least finishing Jan with only 3 UFO's and one ongoing project -- and that friends would be awesome.
January also starts the fabric fast for Fabriholics Anonymous and we shall see how that goes but I tell you I am actually looking forward to it and have a few classes that I am looking into to start on my journey of destashing.
Hope everyone is having a great December and lots of quilting is happening, I know it will be at my house. I'm hoping to post more frequently and hopefully with more finishes as I push on to stay on track with these UFO's and deadlines.
Happy Quilting Everyone.
