FAL Q4 (!!!) Goals

Life got in the way for me last quarter and I didn't even make a list of finish goals! No so for Q4 - here I am, all set to get finishin'!

1. Christmas Market sewing. This is a big one - numerous pillows, baby quilts and key fobs need to be produced prior to the market which I believe will happen in early December. OF COURSE I had grand plans and a fancy workback schedule that showed me making a couple of items each month of this year. HAHAHAHA I am nearly 50 years old (next month) and yet I still manage to delude myself about deadlines and how much I can (and will) actually do ahead of time. Oh well. What gets done gets done. As of today, 5 pillows (of 20), 0 quilts (of 10) and 0 key fobs (of 30) are done. Oh boy.

2. Despite 1 above, I am planning to do a few other things. Namely finishing this round robin quilt that's been on at least 3 if not more FAL lists of mine. It only needs quilting and I can do it on the shop's long arm.

3. And finally, The Canadian Sampler BOM will be finished this quarter! I've been keeping up surprisingly well with this project, and I have already planned a layout for my blocks that's different than the one suggested. Stay tuned!

That's most definitely more than enough to keep me busy in the final part of 2017 because of course there are holiday gifts for family, friends and teachers to think about.
