So after the successes of sleep-deprived-stupid and overly-ambitious Finish Along lists in Q3 and Q4 2014 I'm going for realism with the next installment! Honest!
Aspen Glow: I really, really should make some progress on this...
Star Mug Rug - I really enjoyed having a mug rug on my desk during December, but the Christmas Trees have been packed away, so I need a new one. At the moment it looks like this...
Skill Builder: how many times have you seen this quilt appear on my lists? Maybe, just maybe, this will be the last time.
Secret Sewing: it has progressed a little from this picture, but not much. I'm having a blanket stitch crisis: I don't like the blanket stitch on my new machine. I love the blanket stitch on my old machine, but it doesn't sew at the moment and needs a service. Or I could do it by hand...
Jennie Rayment wall-hanging: this needs quite a lot of applique before I can layer it up and quilt it. That should give me enough time to work how on earth to quilt it.
Baby Quilt - I'm going to shrink the Power of Nine pattern to 6" blocks. I've picked my fabrics and made the first block (and I love it) - 11 to go.
Preppy the Whale: Lots of left-facing whales, no right-facing whales. Yet.
Wedding Quilt: I've completed the embroidery and I really don't think it will take me long to finish this, but I'm feeling pretty uninspired by it at the moment.
Wildflowers: still lots of hand quilting to be getting done.
Essential Sampler Quilt: I'm so close with this - just a little bit more hand sewing to finish the ridiculous quilt-as-you-go-putting-together-nightmare, then a little free motion quilting, and binding. I know that sounds a lot, but in the grand scheme of this quilt, it's nothing!
Trellis: I'm hoping to get this basted on Monday evening but I'm not sure how to quilt it yet.
Schnitzel and Boo Mini Swap: This has to be sent by the end of next week, so I really don't have an option but to get it finished (and pressed!).
Whimsical Woodland Mug Rug Swap: similar sending deadline for this wee fox as well...
UK Mini Swap and UK-mini-swap-inspired cushion: The swap isn't due for a couple of months yet, but I'll be happier once it's progressed a bit further than this. I like this so much, I cut a double set of square so I can have a matching cushion.
Ooops - that's 15 things. Of course I've forgotten to mention that this may be "realistic" for some someone with few other commitments, but not only do I work, Mia will turn one in February, oh, and we're moving house! Wish me luck! Ha ha!
