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!

AprilDoGood-Minis-ImFeelinCrafty

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!

MightyLuckyJan-Main-ImFeelinCrafty

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!

My Seattle Modern Quilt Guild BOM quilt ….

TechnicolorBlocks-WholeCircle-ImFeelinCrafty

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!

FinishAlong-WIP-Dad-ImFeelinCrafty

Dad’s back is done, it’s been quilted by my friends at West Seattle Fabrics and now it just needs binding! I can do it!

FinishAlong-WIP-Beach-ImFeelinCrafty.

Another one from last quarter… And speaking of West Seattle Fabrics, I can’t wait to finish my beach quilt made with fat quarters from a past giveaway day! This is another one that has both the top and back complete. It just needs putting together. No excuses! seriously this time!

FinishALong-RileyBlake-ImFeelinCrafty

This MONTH I have two that I need to do…. First up, The Riley Blake Challenge quilt.

Well…. This one I’m supposed to be working on… But I’m nervous and haven’t quite started sewing anything yet….

4th Quarter Finish -a- Long List

Well, last quarter I finished 2 things on my Finish-a-Long List. I’m hoping to finish more than 2 this time around! Here’s to the 4th Quarter Finish-a-Long with The Littlest Thistle…

FAL-2014-Button

I like having a list of things to do! Well, I mean, I like making lists. Some days I wish I didn’t have a list!

ModernMetallic-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

And I totally missed the deadline on the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild’s Modern Metallic challenge, but I still want to do it! This one was on my last list, but it’s still not a top priority. We’ll see!

Gnomes-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

I did start this gnome quilt right before my machine took it’s nosedive. And it was on last quarter list. It wouldn’t take much to finish, so I’m hoping to get it done this time!

WIP-Dads2-ImFeelinCrafty

I really want to finish my husbands quilt…. And I’m still trying!

The other two at the top of my list are tree quilt I started about 4 years ago and a memory quilt… Oh, yeah and there’s the teacher totes…

What are you going to finish this time around?

Third Quarter Finish-Along

ok, I’m doing it too. I’m joining the Finish-a-Long. I make lists. Do you make lists? I like making lists so I can scratch things off the lists when I finish something! And this is kinda like a list… (trust me, everything I”m showing you here is on my list!)

FAL-2014-Button

So, I’ve been seeing a lot of my quilting buddies post about this Finish-Along thing… At first I didn’t know what they were talking about. Then I realized what was going on! You show everyone what you’re working on, but what isn’t finished. And try to commit to finishing it by the end of the quarter! SO I’m in!

MMChallenge-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

The project I’m going to finish first is the Modern Quilt Guild’s Michael Miller Challenge! I don’t have much left!

doGoodMay-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

Then I’ve got to get my do.Good Stitches bee quilt finished for our Nurture Circle.

ModernMetallic-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

And I totally missed the deadline on the Seattle Modern Quilt Guild’s Modern Metallic challenge, but I still want to do it!

Gnomes-Process-ImFeelinCrafty

I did start this gnome quilt right before my machine took it’s nosedive.

WIP-Dads2-ImFeelinCrafty

I really want to finish my husbands quilt….

And trust me… I have a much longer list, should I keep going???

There’s the BOM of the month neon quilt I want to do… There’s a friend’s t-shirt quilt top… There’s my t-shirt quilt… There’s the tree quilt I started about 4 years ago… There’s the memory quilt… There’s the teacher totes…

I could keep going, but I’m going ot stop now…. What are you working on?

To Do List- More Marked Off the List!

Three more  projects that I can mark off my To Do List! It’s exciting me to me, but might not be all that exciting to you…

PiratePartyThankYou-I'mFeelin'Crafty

The pirate party thank you’s have been written, finally…. And the party pieces are getting posted on Etsy! There’s still more to go, but it’s getting there. A lot of editing of pictures! ergh… Do any of you have etsy shops??

And.. I finally got caught up on my 365 photo project!!! Is anyone else doing this? I decided to do it this year and the subject is my son. So every day, I take a picture of my son. Some days it’s with the big fancy camera, but most days it’s a cell phone picture!

And then each week I set up this image of the week’s photos and wrote a little note about them. It will be fun to put them all in a book one day!

I’ve done this every week all year! A lot of work.. Debating on doing it again this coming year. I’m thinking no.. Except that now my son wants his picture taken every day now…

Alright, next post, Christmas!!

To Do List- John Smith Halloween Costume, done

The first thing crossed off my To-Do-List is the John Smith Halloween Costume!

Ok, have you seen Pocahontas lately? Because it seems like my husband and friends don’t seem to remember the outfit.. They keep saying, well, doesn’t it need this or that… Um. No. This is it.

This costume is for a friend of a friend 300o miles away in Florida. So I’m crossing my fingers that it actually fits. I used a 2T pattern, his size, but some pieces look too small (the arms) and other pieces look to big (the length of the pants).  Who knows! But I have to say I’m nervous! I don’t actually know if the kiddo is a tall and skinny 2T, short with a cute toddler belly 2T or just the run of the mill 2T.

There are a few things I’d do different if I did it again and had more time to spend on it. The boots…  I needed to angle out the boot flap so that it didn’t hug so tightly to the rest of the boot. The pattern I used was a pattern for shorts/pants, which perfectly showing me where the pants stopped and the boots began.

And the sleeves. I tried to make them big, but they look tiny. This is a repeat habit I seem to have… I always seem to make the sleeves too narrow. And the little poof sleeves (I’m sure there’s a more technical term, but…), I’d make those a little smaller.

But on the other hand… I love how the shirt turned out. I used the pattern, Simplicity 2907, for the shirt (and pants) and just turned it around. The front is now the back and the back is now the front. For the front I cut two peices and stitched them together down the front. Turned them inside out and sewed the neck line together for a finished edge at the top. I also added the ength tot he front for the pointed bottom.

I sooooo hope it fits!!

Ahhhh!!! My To Do List

The To Do List is way to long!!

You’d think that since I’m unemployed, I’d have plenty of time and my to do list would be getting shorter and shorter… But for some reason, it’s longer than ever! And I pin things all the time. and some times I get them done. But lately I keep getting sidetracked and doing projects that I see online or just random things that I want to do. But I have got to finish my To Do List.

So I’m writing it down here….
