28 Make swap goodies for my FTLOS partner.
I’ve done a sketch for the main item, and totally know what I want to do for my smaller items too, but now I need to wait for orders to get in so I can get started…
29 Participate in the Sew Happy Geek QAL, and get my top done by the end of March to enter into the prize draw, and so I can send the top to Kat as a charity quilt for Blankets Of Love:
First 5 blocks done, and on time too:
30 Take part in Sarah’s Stained QAL:
It starts in February, and I’m kind of vacillating around which fabrics to use. I’d thought of Morroccan Mirage, but Hadders got there first, but then Sarah’s comment about using her Little Apples bundle reminded me that I have some layer cakes sitting there, for which this could be perfect, including Little Apples:
31 Organise monthly meetings of the West Central Scotland Modern Quilt Guild – the first meeting is this Wednesday, so exciting!
LT's Mum, she did it again. No picture of me when I was adopted in 2011. Nobeary even knows about me, well now I have a column that I share with my sister, Flora so at least bears in the USA know me, humans too.
So there, LT, I have my own Blog column on Prudence's Blog – so there!!!!
Hugs to you, LT's Mum.
Hi Jack, Hi Clan – I love you.
holy crap! you have been super busy!
Oh my goodness your list is INSANE! And you are ticking things off left and right. Good for you, busy girl 🙂
Oh my goodness! Your list is LONG! And you've got so much of it done!
I reeeeeally like the yellow and grey fabric and the blue polka dot cord. 🙂
WOAH! You've done a ton! I need to get busy!
I love that hexagon wall handing and the red work embroidery, and I'm adoring that Echino purse! You must have been sewing full time, you've gotten so much done! Wonderful work!
Sorry, I have to go lie down after reading that. I am exhausted!! And I love No 20 bags. LOVE!!!
I`m exhausted = well done on getting so much done. Do you have a sewing machine in your office??
Phew! I thought the list would never end. So many amazing projects!
i'm bowing down to your amazing productivity and awesome sewing prowess…we're not worthy!
Really productive! I just love that orange and purple teddy bear. What am I saying, I really like ALL of your projects. Great job!
Wow and I thought my list was crazily long, you've made some fantastic stuff. Good luck with the rest of it!
I ADORE I do mean ADORE (is there a stronger word for adore?) that wristlet with the birds on the flap. What pattern is that? Not that I think I can pull it off quite like you. It is gorgeous! Oh and my daughter would flip over a panda! but not quite like me with that wristlet!!!
Hi, Lulu, thank you for the sympathy and good wishes and you're just right to strike out on your own I think. Feisty females are what we need more of in the world!
I have to say that a couple of those stocking fillers came my way, so I was very lucky – the scarf and pincushion are both lovely but I need to get some shiny new pins to treat it with the respect it deserves.
Can't wait to see the next items off the production line 🙂
Hugs to all,
Katy, what fun looking at all your accomplishments AND I think you should go for sewing that coat … what is life if we don't have a few pies in the sky?! Enjoy! xoxo, Janice
Flipping heck girl! At first I got depressed about the post title, are we really only half way though winter, then I got really depressed about how little I'm doing at the moment!
Wow! Look at you, you big acheiver! Thats an awful lot to get accomplished in that time.
Gotta say I love the redwork project for your dads christmas pressie. The pintuck cushions are so beautiful too.
you are one busy gal! good for you! lots of loveliness here today! 🙂
Show off!! I'm just jealous because I can't keep up. You're just too darn productive. When you do a post like this and includ the photos of what you've gotten done it really is amazing that there's been any time to do anything else. I've finally decided that you must be a "Time Lord" as there is no other explaination. :^)
Wow, you sure get alot done at your house! I don't know where to start. I must say, your bears are super cute. How did you get into that hobby? Also, the Amy Butler clutch purse is so well made – bravo.
wow, everything is so perfect. I didn't realize you were such a good paper piecer. Well done. Those bee blocks are fabulous
Wow. Just Wow.
And you're rocket ship block is still one of my favourites ever!
Dear God, I thought my list was big! You've done so much and its all fab fab fab! Love your teddy bears, they are so adorable. And your QAL blocks are looking great too 🙂
OMG! You have been super busy,your list is insanely long! How do you manage it? Awesome work 🙂
