This Sunday morning I am contemplating my possible finishes for the first quarter finish along of 2014, hosted this year by Katy. There are quite a few, but some are very close to being finished, so I should stand a good chance. The next two months are usually good sewing times for me - the weather is usually cold and snowy, a good excuse to stay in my sewing room. So far this year though, there is no sign of the cold and the snow. In fact, I am going outside today to clean some of the windows. Only some for goodness sake, don't panic
1. Stitch Tease 2 quilt. This one is going to get finished come hell or high water. I got it on the machine yesterday to quilt, and the day went badly. I tried using variagated thread (again). Having quilted the centre block, and some of the next round, I decided I really didn't like it, so I spent last night, and no doubt tonight, unpicking it all! I think it's because of the purple - it stands out like a sore thumb, and if the quilting is less than perfect, which mine definitely is - the purple highlights every mistake. Back to white or cream for me!
2. The purple and orange diamonds. I picked this up yesterday when I'd had enough of the quilting. I've nearly finished piecing the top
3. Euro Siblings Together. I would really like to get this one finished and ready to go before the deadline. I hate leaving things to the last minute, then rushing them.
5 & 6. I'm not sure if I'm late for last Christmas or early for next, but I have two Christmassy EPP projects than are almost finished and ready to me made into cushions. I had many a happy hour in front of the TV over Christmas sewing these
7. I think I can list knitting projects too, so I am also determined to finish this cardigan. I was one ball short to finish it, but that will be winging it's way to me on Monday, so I should get this done. I have so many unfinished kniting and crochet projects, I should get them out and list them all. Maybe they would get finished then!
Well that's all I'm going to list. I have two more projects that I know I won't get finished. They may make progress, but they won't get finished.
Keep your fingers crossed that I will get this lot done. And good luck to everyone else with their projects. Well, I can't put off the windows any longer!
