Finish Along Quarter 1 2018 Goals!

Happy 2018! I’m in a hurry to get back to blogging and posting my finish along goals for this quarter!

It’s going to be similar to my last few, as I didn’t get much done. But I’ve been on a roll and I’m trying to get a bunch of WIP’s out of here!!!

There are two do Good Stitches quilts that I have to finish this quarter!

And here’s a sneak peek at the next Nurture Circle do Good quilt. I have the top done for this one.

My second one for this year is the star quilt! I can’t wait to get this one put together!

This one is a new one! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this one. It’s our Seattle MQG BOM this year. And I’ve been keeping up with this one, so it shouldn’t be hard to get this one done! I’m finishing the last block now!!

And this is the reason I didn’t get more on my list done last quarter! I started this one! The top is done, but I’m not sure I like it anymore. I’m thinking about cutting it up and sewing it back together!

And now back to my nice long list of WIP’s that have been waiting around to get finished!

And there’s this one I’d like to finish from a year ago. It’s slated as a gift….

I’ve picked this one up again and hope to finish it ASAP for the whole gift giving thing!  This one uses the quick curve ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful

These last three I REALLY WANT TO FINISH!

I’m STILL working on the Technicolor Galaxy Quilt!

GreyQuilt

This is an old one that has been sitting on the shelf for about 3 years. Sitting there with a front and back done! This one just needs the binding finished. I did get it quilted! So close!!!

And I am still working on two Christmas quilts and my Halloween quilt from the last quarter. But even if I do finish them, I might wait to share them until closer to the holidays!

And that’s my ongoing to do list! I know it won’t all get done, but I like having all my WIP’s in one To-Do-List!

A Fun Review Thanks to Style and Apply

Hello friends! Long time, no blogging! Today I want to share something that was very fun for the kiddo!

We were in the process of updating the kiddo’s room when Style and Apply contacted me to see if I was interested in checking out their product and writing a review. Of course I said yes, thinking this could be really fun. Then as soon as I saw the sorting hat, I knew it was perfect timing!

I guess you can tell from the name what it is. Right? They sell wall decals that are stylish and all you have to do is apply! They also have window decals! I went straight to the sorting hat of course, since the kiddo is totally into Harry Potter right now. But then I started thinking, what about something for me? They have some cute Christmas ones. (I love the Reindeer II) We love Bansky’s art and they have a bunch of his art. Kids, kids galore! I almost got a funky pattern for the play room. But we went back to getting something for the kiddo! Of course….

StyleApply-two-ImFeelinCrafty

The people at Style and Apply were very accommodating! You see how dark blue the walls are and I couldn’t tell which grey was the right one to go with . The sent me some samples and helped by narrow down the choice. We are transitioning from a green, blue and tan room, to a silver, blue and white room!

StyleApply-Happy Mail- ImFeelinCrafty

And then it came! In this cute mailer! It took me a little while to get it up. I had grand plans (as usual) to finish quite a few other things I have planed for his room. Then finally, I faced the truth and realized that I don’t know when those are going to get down and it’s too cool to just wait around on those other projects!

StyleApply-Locate-ImFeelinCrafty

First step, we located exactly where we wanted it to go and marked the wall.

StyleApply-Rub-ImFeelinCrafty

Then you use the supplied card to go through and press the decal to the backing.

StyleApply-Remove-ImFeelinCrafty

You remove one layer of paper and then stick it to the wall. Then, very carefully, remove the second layer of paper. For this design, there were a lot of little pieces so it got a little tedious. Also, my walls are plaster and not smooth since we live in a little, old house! That made it a little more difficult to remove the paper. I had to take more time and really make sure the decal was adhering to the wall. No fault of the decal, just my reality!

StyleApply-Bumps-ImFeelinCrafty

You can see the bumps! It took a little longer than a smooth wall, but it adhered all the same!

StyleApply-Done-ImFeelinCrafty

Look how cool it is!

StyleApply-Before-ImFeelinCrafty

Here’s the before….

StyleApply-After-ImFeelinCrafty

And the after! (in progress still, but getting closer!)

StyleApply-Happy-ImFeelinCrafty

And one happy kiddo! Thanks Style and Apply for making this kid even happier! We will be back!

 

I have been compensated with either payment or product for this post. All opinions are my own, honest opinions!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! This year was a bust… First off, I didn’t get to make a costume. The kiddo decided to be Harry Potter and we had already purchased most of the pieces. He’d been planning this for months! And then tonight he came home from school with 102 degree fever. So, while the other kids […]

Modern Sampler Quilt

You may remember me starting the Modern Sampler Quilt Along with Salty Oat, way back in at the beginning of last year. Then I got most of the blocks done by May and then finished the beginning of this year. This quilt is pretty much not my style at all! I like it, but the low […]

The 1-Hour Dopp Kit

I love patterns that say 1 hour! Ha! Whatever! Well, it takes me almost that long just to pick the fabric. And if you quilt it, right away the one hour is out the window! Right? And maybe once you’ve made it once it will only take an hour, but the first one never takes […]
