1. Finish piecing scrappy bargello wallhanging
Don't know why this particular project moved in and took over, but I feel compelled to work on it, even when I should be doing other things. I think I'm almost halfway done, so maybe my attention can take a break soon and wander back to civilization.
2. Final row of Relaxing Robin
This project will finish out at twin size; don't feel like I have much more to go. The final border will be a checkerboard pattern. With some pieced fish thrown in, just because I like to keep things complicated.
3. Two more blocks for drama t-shirt quilt
|One of the 17 t-shirts...|
Just puttering around with this project. I am trying to draft my own paper-piecing pattern for epaulettes, and may even tackle the vines to accompany Little Shop of Horrors.
4. Finish rainbow bathrobe
Born in a fit of good intentions, but now languishing in the corner of the sewing room. I hear heavy sighs from the pile of cut out fabric, and feel the faces from the pattern envelope staring at me in a threatening manner.
5. Make three garments
Considering the year is half over, and I'm still sporting the "make a garment a month" button on the sidebar of this blog, I either need to get it in gear, or give up the dream. Have black fabric all picked out for a cute little dress. What's after that, I can't even guess.
6. Practice FMQ (placemats?)
|Reuse wedding table-runner: for placemats?|
Jess at Elven Garden is doing a FMQ (free-motion quilting) quilt-along. I really wanna improve this skill! My first attempts were very disheartening, and I essentially put the foot and practice fabric all away right afterwards, but I am ready to re-enter the fray.
7. Quilt red/pink/black baby quilt
If I get some FMQ practice in August, I'd like to get to quilting in September. This top was finished in 2012 and has been patiently waiting for my quilting skills to improve.
8. Make a dent in the mending pile
|Mending pile: a representative sample...|
Too many mending tasks to list, or even to finish in 3 months (especially given that these are not a priority). But I'd like to get FIVE things mended. Don't even know which five it will be...
Am I really going to accomplish everything on this list? Probably not. Most likely, other projects will try and assert themselves. Maybe a UFO will even fly out of the closet and demand to be worked into my ToDo list. I just need to have a list to refer to, and to give me motivation when I'm at a loss and feeling like I never accomplish things.
I am linking up to Finish Along at The Littlest Thistle for this quarter. I like knowing that I have good company in folks like me who have more ideas than time.
