Yes that is me! Trying to keep plates spinning, juggling balls in the air and sending my son off to Turkey for a holiday with friends while getting ready for FQR and hosting a patchwork 'how to' at our church!
So much fun all at the same time! Lucky me!
However before I can give my whole attention to FQR there is one bit of housekeeping to do - writing my Finishalong list for Quarter three.
I have had a serious case of startitis this year - causing my dear friend Helen to have lumps on her head as she bangs it on the desk in despair of me ever finishing anything.
Last quarter was a bit thin on finishes! Argh!
Only this one!
So I still have all these to finish from Quarter 2.
You've seen this one every quarter I think - and it is still hanging around!
No progress made on the Wonky houses this past quarter but only a border to add....
This is for my daughter in the above photo - she loves red and has tidied her bedroom - best room in the house now ! She deserves a finished quilt...
This one will be done by Friday! Quilting has started - just need to add a bit more and bind! It is the Stingy Bee group quilt for Siblings Together.
These blocks are the product of my first bee Sew and Bee Happy - to make a hanging for my sewing room.
I want to add in some picture blocks of sewing stuff....I was thinking Foundation Pieced but maybe I should fussy cut some printed pictures after all there is enough sewing related prints out there....even got some in my stash!
My Kona colour chart to be! I have many more colours to add...
But my plan for Quarter Three was to add these to the mix!
My International book shelf from my Star of Africa bees!
And Sana's red riding hood block which I love but can't find my own photo to share with you here so Sana said I could use hers! Isn't it just the cutest and Sana's first attempt at this sort of thing - you have to agree she has mastered it first time around!
My Rose Star quilt - I'd just like a bit of progress on this one!
My basket sampler - an oldie which I fell out of love with - it was just too pink until I added the grey round it! Now I think I could do something with it!
Yes I did start the Farmer's Wife...
And the Hexalong with Lynne...
Well now I will just have a mammoth list and will see how far I get through these UFOs.
And just in case I don't have enough I might tackle these more recent projects! They are more my current style I think...and therefore easier to work on I think....
My Arrowhead Star bee quilt! I am getting some of my blocks at FQR when I meet some of my lovely Modern Stitching Bee mates! Eek excited about that!
And another bee quilt in the making - my choice as QB for August in Stingy Bee - the offset cross quilt
Then there is this Pyramid quilt I cut out inspired by the lovely Annabella!
And Baby Bear Paws inspired by Lucy and Janine - both lovely too - and hosting a Bear Paw group on Flickr!
And I have this project - Tulip Star which I want to write a tutorial for - there is only one block so far but you can do wonders with a mosaic!
And finally a project I haven't shown on my blog yet! Made in purple and grey from delectable mountain blocks but sewn in a more contemporary layout. Modern mountains perhaps??
OK only 18 projects here! Haha! I am crazy but my nature is such that as soon as I tell myself I have to do one project that becomes the last thing on earth I want to do! Stubborn, procrastinating, obdurate, timewasting - all good descriptions of my wayward ways.
I thought if I list everything I might get something done or a bit of progress on every one would be good!
Linking at last with the lovely Leanne....
