….. sigh…. I know a ‘nudge’ when I see one and this post of Correne’s, about Katy’s FAL for 2014, was more of a ‘shove’ than a ‘nudge’ !!
Having said that I have watched other bloggers joining in with the Finish alongs that have been hosted over the last few years and found them inspiring. It is such a good idea to share with like minded people your plans to finish projects and then look back to see what you have all, hopefully, achieved. Or at least the steps toward finishing that you have taken.
So, after giving myself a good talking to….. and an
agitated encouraging chat with Correne on the phone …. I’ve decided to join in too. Please imagine a very scared face here. It’s not that I’m competitive…. much …. it’s just that …. I … prefer to waffle on in my own sweet (?) way. So no one else can see when I don’t achieve my objective!!! All nonsense I know!! But hey, what am I making a fuss about? You’re all lovely people and will only encourage me, so it’s all good isn’t it? 🙂 Besides which, I’ve got a lot of very noisy UFO’s and WIP’s as this post told you and they have become even more noisy since the move!!
Without further ado, here’s my list:
1. This is destined to be a cushion. I’ve been plodding on with it in the evenings whilst watching tv and it’s so close to being done. I told you about it in a previous post, masses of tiny hexies swapped with Helen for scraps of Liberty fabric. The really good thing is that it will be Helen’s finish too as she made all the tiny hexies in the first place!! I hope she’s reading this and is impressed. 🙂
2. I’m ashamed to say this was started in 2011 as my part of the Fresh Modern Bee 2 on Flickr. In my defence, I did become really ill before the end of the Bee’s year and spent eighteen months or so on almost complete bed rest. I still struggle and am generally very slow making anything but I would LOVE it to be a finished quilt by the end of 2014.
3. Honestly, this should be a quick finish, even for me, if I can just decide what I want to do with it!!! Some of my favourite fabric ever I think, Lecien’s Petit Fleur.
And that’s it folks! I know I know only three!!!! And one is a long term one too. But I’m hoping that I will get more confident each quarter…… perhaps?
Now then, I’m off to ask Correne how to do the linky thing with Katy’s blog. No doubt she’ll get tired of explaining and do it for me….. At least I’m hoping she will!!!!
Thanks for dropping in. Take good care of yourselves.
Happy Sewing Xxx
