I suspect the only thing that motivated me to get anything already started finished was the finish-a-long and whilst I think there were at least three further items I could have probably got finished, I am delighted with the three finishes I did accomplish.
I also did a fair amount of adding to my Fancy Dr Who Scarf. I didn't actually expect to finish it as it requires left over scraps of yarn from other projects. Although once I'd got back to knitting it (and I did go wrong and need some assistance from Helen in getting back on track!) I discovered I'd got more yarn to add to it than I realised. It may not have been a finish, but if it hadn't been on the list I'd have probably found more excuses to put off getting back to it. Which is a shame as once I'd picked it up again I really enjoyed it!
I am delighted to report this new quarter list has no additions. I have started some embroidery, although I've not decided if I'll frame it when it's finished or add it into a fabric book I cut the leaves out for but didn't actually embellish. If it turns out to be the latter I can see this being a very long term project so I've decided not to include it here. But I might blog about it's progress if I remember!
This also means my list is under 20 items. I reckon I could easily do at least 3 again this quarter. Wish me luck!
Things I'd quite like to get finished. Here goes:
1. Fancy Dr Who Scarf - no optimistic of a finish because I have to generate left overs to add to this!
2. Birdie panel made by the last bee I was in. Wanted to make this into a cushion but I'm not sure it's a suitable shape or whether one of the panels would hold up to being a cushion.
3. X&+ quilt. Totally doable she says bravely. It's about half done top wise.
4. Highland Coo panel to turn into a cushion
5. Hexie flowers to turn into a knitting project bag.
6. Every day place mats - I started cutting at least
7. Panel that needs turning into a cushion
8. Four identical bags, interfacing and snaps in their own plastic bags. Destined to become a little shoulder bag.
9. HST's destined for a table runner!
10. plus blocks destined for a cushion
11. Orphan blocks destined to become a scrappy kitchen sink quilt
12. Never did plan a whole quilt of these. But I did plan a small quilt to use as a table centre piece
13. need to finish hand quilting and turn into a cushion
14. Bag pieces cut out for a fab Noodlehead tote
15. Liberty Apple Core sewing organiser - (I'd have finished this at the weekend but I can't find my rotary cutter. The one in the picture is an old one and blunt!)
16. PJ Bottoms. I made these in class at the Fat Quarterly retreat. I think they only need length sorting and hemming - presuming they still fit because I think these were from 2013!
17. Scrappy Trip Quilt. I'd got some suitable strips left from making Chiefs quilt and had cut some more and started to sew them together. But then I ran out of steam!
18. My precious large star quilt. About 6 - 7 years ago these large star quilts were every where and I pulled some precious fabric started cutting and even got the back ground fabric in a zingy shade of Klona. But then I couldn't work out how to cut the blocks well given the size would be larger than my cutting mat!
19. Low Volume blocks - had visions of a vintage/modern heritage style quilt in low volume colours with the odd pop of colour.
