Ok so I had myself an epic fail on FAL quarter 1. I finished my sewing machine cover and mat, but didn't get around to linking them up. And the other 3... yeah. No. I didn't get them done.
SO why am I linking up for quarter 2??? Because I like to set myself deadlines and goals that I know I will not meet! I'm quirky that way!
So my FAL 2 list is as follows:
1- Harry Potter
I am loving this project! I think I have fallen in love with foundation paper piecing, in general. It is super time consuming and my sewing room is a disaster of a mess, because I'm using so many different fabrics. But it is progressing. And with three months of steady work, I can TOTALLY get this top finished.
That being said, I have no idea how I want to quilt it, or what I want to back it with, so maybe not totally finished.....
2 - Radiant Orchid Dresden
I am more than halfway through the quilting. I have to stop working on HP and finish this sucker! It was supposed to be done weeks ago, but I got distracted by HP and haven't gotten back into my quilting groove.
3 - Radiant Orchid Hexies
Another project I just love. I need to make my bag and go from there. I have a pattern picked, but I think I want to do a practise before I commit my hexies to it.
4 - Mini-Charms
I still love these little pieces of sunshine and happiness. But they are my simple sewing. They need me to be in a certain mindset... We'll see how the mood strikes me this quarter. It could be a nice simple finish...
5 - Penny Patch
Ok, this is taking up desk space. it must be finished. It is a simple pattern. There is no reason at all why I can't get this done this quarter.
6 - Swoon
I cheated and had this long-armed. (It looks amazeballs by the way) So this month I am going to get this bound. I want this on my bed for winter. I am determined.
I also cheated with this one. I sent it out be long-armed too. I am so happy with my Swoon, I can't wait to see what this one looks like! And then a quick easy binding and it'll be finished!!!!!!!!
8 - Improv
I am further along with this than you've seen (I promise a post in the imminent future!) and I think I'm going to get it long armed. So three months to get it back form a professional and ad some binding - definitely do-able!
Ok. So I'm a little ambitious. But with a little bit of elbow grease I can totally get this list tackled and at least get some of thee moving along. They're all active WIPS. I'm not including the things that are tucked into hidey holes or that have been sitting in boxes for months, collecting dust.
Is anyone else linking up with the FAL? Any tips on how I can actually achieve my epic list?
