get real ~ FAL Q4 2015

There are so many works in progress around here it's kind of ridiculous. For the last quarter of the finish-along I'm abandoning all those things I would like finished at some point and knuckling down to get the things I need done done!

1. Tote bag. So despite my declaration above, this doesn't have a deadline but I want to make it for myself using these yummy fabrics:

2. Next up is my project for the Halloween Haunts Blog Hop, which starts tomorrow! Mine involves this:

I'm not ready to attach that yet and I'm nervous I won't get it right! Wish me luck!

3. And another bag for the Purse Palooza at Sew Sweetness, using this pattern:

4. A quilt using these lovely fabrics:

5. A cozy cushion using Lori Holt's pattern from the Cozy Cottage 2016 calendar.

6. I've had an idea to make a pincushion using the crazy tiny liberty hexies I started working on forever ago and haven't touched since (just checked and they were on my FAL list last year)!

7, 8 and 9. Lastly but most important is #therearenowordsquilt for Nat. I am making one for her family and one for both sets of grandparents. So three quilts. There has been such a kind response to my call for blocks and I hope to have enough to complete all three. I've also had donations of wadding, fabric and help towards costs so I'm really grateful and will pour love into these quilts.

  1. Those fabrics at #4 are just yummy! Good luck with your list....especially Nat's quilts. I hope my block gets to you soon!

  2. Isn't that the truth - so many project to finish! I do like your take on it - finish something NEW! LOL

  3. That's quite a list. The quilts for Nat's family will be so very special. I also have some bag ideas to make as with the 5p charge I thought I might as well take nice bags along with me!

  4. Was glad to be part of the quilts for Nat's family @appliqueensal Christmas must have been so hard for them.
