I hate how it seems like I miss a lot of things by a day or two because I'm at work! UGH! I found out about the 100 day Hustle hosted by Kelsey of kelseysews last night! And it of course, was ONE NIGHT too late!!! I love the idea she has....making a list of the things you hope to accomplish in the rest of 2012 (wow, doesn't seem like it's already close to the end of the year!!!) or looking back at what you had said you wanted to accomplish at the beginning of the year and marking that list off!
Well, as I wasn't really sewing that much at the beginning of the year I don't have a list, yet!
But guess what? Yep I made me one!!!!!! It's pretty darn long too!!! I don't know if I'll be able to accomplish all of this list, there are DEFINATELY a few things I HAVE TO finish this year, and those of course will be at the top of my list!
You wanna see it?????
SUUUUUURE ya do! (well if not, I'm showing you anyways!)
I could use all the cheering on and encouragement I can get too!
There are a few things I didn't put on there because, well, they are just unrealistic goals!
And really the only thing I've started actually sewing from this list is Dakota's quilt. (For those of you who don't know he is my step-son) I've got the design figured out for Amanda's quilt (which is going to be made from Tula Pink's Nightshade collection) and that is also my first comissioned quilt!!! *big grin* I do have all the fabric I need for my quilt, and I know what "pattern" I'm going to use, just haven't started it yet! My Christmas quilt is going to be made from the Joy jelly roll I have, and a few pieces of yardage. As for my niece's quilt, ummmm......I HAVE NO CLUE YET!!! My brother and sister-in-law (mainly the later) are SOOOOO PICKY I have no clue what they will even like! UGH! The baby shower is on November 10th, which is coming sooner rather than later, so I need to figure something out! And I need to do it quick like, as well as cute like! Any one got any ideas???? I think I'm going to put up Dakota's WIP and work mainly on the blocks for Amanda's quilt first, the design is simple, so I'm hoping it won't take me TOO long to spit out a Full to Queen size quilt!
As for the bags, well, the ones with names to them will be done quickly. As for the other stuff I can't really share any of those details yet, it's a SURPRISE! (One that I hope you guys will enjoy!)
My first swap that I hosted went sew well I've got another one in the works! It's going to be opposite of the Kona Rainbow, KONA NEUTRALS! And not charms either, one of the members suggested 5 inch by 10 inch bricks, which I LOVE the idea and have gotten some GREAT responses to the idea, so I'm going with it! And I'm still trying to work out the details, hopefully I won't have any last minute problems like I did with this one, but we will see! You live, you learn, right????
I'm also participating in my FIRST GROUP SWAP!!! I'm SEW EXCITED about this one I can't hardly take it!
As for me, I'm so nervous about this swap, my partner is a FANTASTIC quilter, and I really REALLY don't want to let her down. I want to make something she WILL LOVE and use! Sew, I'm hoping I can do this without making too many mistakes!
Okay, so I'll let you guys go, I know this was a VERY wordy post!!! So with that in mind, I'll leave you with some pics! :)
Yes, my baby girl has to wear glasses now! :( I'm praying she will grow out of it though!
~Hope y'all are having a great day!!~
