2013 Finish A Long: Q3 Goals
Half a year over already! That's so hard to believe! But here we are in July.
I've really been enjoying the motivation that the Finish-A-Long is providing me. That isn't to say I got everything accomplished on my WIP/UFO list, but it certainly has helped me get a move on some long-languishing projects. Which brings me to this quarter's goals. I've made what we call at work "a stretch target" of three WIP/UFO finishes.
1. New Wave. The great news is that the top is made. I'm thrilled at just that amount of progress but it really does need to be completed, so....yeah.
2. Baby quilt commission. This one is small and simple, and the top is nearly complete.
3. Scrappy Churn Dash. This is the stretch. I've got a total of 15 blocks from my Stash Trad Bee and a bee/swap with Holly. I'd like this to be lap size so with those 12" finished blocks, I'm looking at at least 17 more to make. Gulp. But I just love it so much, I simply cannot stand that it is not being worked on!
In addition to the foregoing WIPs, I will be tackling some new projects (but they don't count because they're not begun):
Placemats for Steve and Leah. I bartered for some design work by our friend and talented graphic designer Steve. My scrap bin has advised me that I should employ the slab technique from Sunday Morning Quilts, and I've listened.
Back-to-school clothing for G. Skirts, leggings and a few dresses are planned. I may even sneak in some sewing for myself while I'm at it!
And there we have it. I'd better get sewing, eh?
