Finish-A-Long maybe?!


I'm linking up last minute to the fourth quarter Finish-A-Long at Quilter in the Gap.

I really wasn't sure whether to do this post because the baby is due in January and I'm not sure how much I'll get done or even if I'll be able to sit for very long at my machine with the ever growing bump... there's stuff I want to finish though so I'm just listing them and putting no pressure on myself to finish any of it!!

- first up is a simple Christmas tablecloth made with lovely charm squares. Nearly all cut so not too much work


- Blogger's BOM - blocks done but obviously needs to be put together and I'd love to give this as a Christmas present


- Baby quilt for a wonderful friend, she's due any day so I really want to finish this one!


- Project for the kids, still quite a bit of work needs doing but it's needed so hopefully this one will get done too


- HFWYG QAL - I've already fallen behind and I strongly suspect it might be asking too much for a proper finish on this


- Retro flowers - Hahahahahaha. Really doubt it!



I'm going at my own pace and not stressing... I'll just enjoy sewing and see what gets done!
(so don't worry Helen!!)

  1. Wishing you the best of luck! Shouldn't you have some nesting hormones kicking in soon? You'll breeze through these :)

  2. That is a good list and adding cooking the baby and tending the others, you have a lot on the go.

  3. Your HFWYG block is fabulous, and your flowers make a lovely pile! Good luck with your goals and growing that sweet baby!

  4. I think that your 'whatever gets done' attitude is the best with the baby on the way. Di x

  5. I've told you before my pregnancy sewing mainly consisted of buying fabric so I remain in awe.

  7. You've got some seriously cool looking projects going on there, and it will be easier to get them done before the arrival than after. Just saying!

  16. Just take your time. You'll get them all done eventually. It's like housework and dirty dishes...they'll wait patiently for you! I like the looks of the tings you have in progress. Keep us posted as you go along!

  17. Beautiful projects in the works, Lucy! I guess it's more fun finishing a project without stressing oneself out and the outcome would be more satisfying, don't you agree? Love your approach on taking it easy...

  18. I think, if you don't make them, you should get a special prize for the best excuse!!!
