Isn't is slightly ominous that this is the last of the FAL lists for 2014 - how did that come about so quickly?
I said I would finish all my UFOs this year (well, I said that I wanted to do it in 2013 too but didn't even get near it!)
This year I have actually finished 16 out of the 20 UFOs I had listed at the beginning of the year and I think that has been a massive achievement!
This Finish Along, my Lazy Bums group and many cheerleaders and monitors among you lovely people have really helped in this process and I owe you all a huge debt of thanks!
So only four remaining UFOs (for me a UFO is a project one year old or over) and here they are - at the very least I'm sure I can get two more finished! The top two don't really need that much more to finish them...
And then I started these projects in Quarter 3 - half the battle in keeping the UFOs down is not starting new projects - it seems that only works for the first six months for me! Oops!
Now you are wondering what other things I have on my list aren't you?
Well there are these four! Almost all at the finished (or nearly) quilt top stage
Then in October I started a thing with Leanne @She Can Quilt - #Scraptastic Tuesday.
Please join in on our blogs, where there will be a linky party for your scrappy projects, large and small, every month on the second Tuesday of the month. And there will even be prizes from these fabulous sponsors!
So if like us you are drowning in scraps join in and let's see if we can contain them!
I am hoping to use up all my scraps or at least keep up with them. My first scrappy project is the Dresden quilt in the mosaic above but I am very excited about a new project - a Scraptastic Sampler.
I will be making easy traditional blocks from my scraps, in various sizes from 4" - 15" with just a few repeats to keep my interest going. I am liberating my Liberty scraps in this project along with solids and other prints. Here is my progress to date...
I'm giving dimensions of the units making up my blocks so you can join in if you want to. I have it all planned out and everything!
And I've also joined two swaps....
Trim the Tree Swap
Of course there are plans for other quilts to join these ones - isn't there always!?
