FAL while I wait


I wasn't going to but what the heck?! I might as well list some things I'd like to get finished and join in the Finish-A-Long hosted by Leanne!

she can quilt


So inevitably the first thing I'd like finished is this pregnancy. What, doesn't that count?! Well I still want it done ;)


Realistically once the bub arrives I don't know how I will sew (I'd like to think I'll master multitasking, quilting and breastfeeding simultaneously but there's that slight concern about needles, rotary cutters etc. Damn it!) but should I have any spare time at all I would love to get these finished...


Rolling over from the last FAL:

- Blogger's BOM quilt- quilt top still needs borders (all nice and wrinkly because it's been folded up on my desk!)


- HFWYG? QAL quilt - I am way behind because it's hard to sit at the machine for long but hopefully once the bump has reduced I might get back to those gorgeous blocks!


Also in piles on my sewing desk:

- Tooth Fairy cushions - I have a stack of three designs all 'bondawebbed' and ready to applique, just need to do it!


- The Braid Quilt - again this just needs borders



So we shall see. No pressure. Obviously taking care of children is my priority but there may just be the odd hour when one is at school, one is at playgroup (or Granny's house!) and one is sleeping. Finger's crossed hey?


Speaking of kids, last night over dinner we were trying to explain what wishes are... here's the three wishes they'd each ask for from a genie (total 'mum' style I wrote them down immediately!):


He is 4 and she is 3 and this list just perfectly sums up their little personalities!

  2. Aw, bless them!! Good luck with your list and the 'napping/school/playgroup' wish...

  3. Heh, well at least you and Fred share the same first wish (and probably the unwritten one that you can get back to playing afterwards on his part, shame you have different ideas of playing ;o) )

  4. I think that each of your kids might get a wish or two. You have a good list there for finishing, I hope you have time to sew a little. Nice to see you in the FAL.

  5. Good luck on your FAL list!

    LOL I love Fred's #1 wish and your daughter's wish to ride on a butterfly. So cute!

  6. Oh that is cute. I love that your son thinks of you first, and that your daughter is in such a fantasy world! Mine was like that. Oddly, I got more sewing done when my kids were babies. Not newborns, but older, settled babies who would have good sized afternoon sleeps. Now my youngest is 3 the afternoon sleep is a thing of the past, and so are really productive afternoons! I play fetch him food!

  8. Their lists are so sweet! I especially love Joan's wish to ride on a butterfly. :)

    Let me know if you discover the secret to finding sewing time with three little ones in the house. :) So far I've only been able to sneak in a bit during naptime (only on school days) and at night. But even that only works out every few days.

  10. Hoosier Toni is getting a lot done with her 3 little ones, so you can do it too!! When's the due date? I can't remember...

    Love your kids' 3 wishes. So cute! I'd like to go bowling too. :)

  11. Adorable but I also wanted to see yours!

    I think we all want a ride on the butterfly!

    I'm sure Fred can get his boat ride - aren't there a few canals Manchester way?

  12. Oh, I love their lists! One reason I loved teaching kindergarten was just talking with the kids. I love how simply they see the world.

    And on a side note, I love that HFWYG quilt block. Awesome color choices.

  14. Lovely!
    Pity the poor butterfly that got me on his back!!

  15. Such sweet wishes but I think that Mummy wanting the baby to come will happen first. Di x

  16. Bowling and boating are definitely do-able, but not sure of the butterfly! It does make a beautiful image though! Good luck with your wish list too!

  17. Great wishes!
    I just wish you an easy week xxx

  18. Oh Joans wishes remind me of Beccy when she was younger, that is totally what she would have wished for too. In fact she used to get letters from the tooth fairy who rode butterflies rather than horses. Love that Fred wants the baby out now

  21. Such sweet wishes! I'm sure you'll get all those finished. I think I'd better link up some things myself :)

  22. Wishing you a quick and safe delivery. And good luck with the other goals. This first quarter is going to be a real challenge for you.

  23. Imagine if you took them on a cruise where they could bowl on a boat! That might freak them out!
