ALYOF Dec goal

I'm going to keep Dec's goal reasonable.  I have to finish up some major projects.  I've got crafty ADD.

I want to quilt and bind this one, my Cushion Cut quilt:

It's already pin basted.  I had planned working on it over Thanksgiving break and didn't get it done.

Other goals for Dec:
Molly Market Tote
Binding my Moda Building Block quilt
Finishing my sock scrap blanket
Luna Moth pillow
making headway on the Zelda quilt!

ALYOF November finish!

I  made my goal for ALYOF.

My second version of Catvent.  I love this one, too.  I also just LURVE scrappiness.

ALYOF November goal

I have too too many projects that I've stalled out on.  I haven't done anything but a bit of hand sewing since I've been back.  (To be fair, the hand sewing was under the direction of the incredibly fabulous Jen Kingwell...AND I finally understand templates.)

I've been knitting up a storm.  Um..I have three KAL going right now.


So, my goal will be a smallish one. I want to finish the catvent quilt.  I've got the top made.  I have the backing.  I just need to find a chunk of batting the right size.  (That's the bit I forgot to bring to Stash Bash least the bit of that project.)

ALYOF October finish

I still have a post to write on the mini Stash Bash.

I had a blast, but it wasn't my most productive retreat.  I don't know if I was fighting an ick or just really overloaded with allergies, but my brain was fuzzy.  As a result, I was using the seam ripper as often as I was actually sewing.

I did, however, finish my Oct goal for ALYOF.

Secret sewing for Stash Bash mini

I'm am idiot...because it really didn't occur to me that my mini partner actually reads my blog...and she does.

So, I apologize, dear Katie, for kind of blowing the surprise factor.

I still have to finish my own Molly Market tote, but I finished the one I made for Katie.  I used the last of Star Wars stash.  (Which ended up being restocked by my mini Stash Bash partner.)

I wanted a bag that was useful and fun.  I hope I succeeded!

My sew jo has gone AWOL post mini bash.  I blame the announcement of a beloved house guest arriving in a coupe of weeks.  I've abandoned sewing for cleaning.  Just unearthing the guest bed alone has been an endeavor.  I'll probably keep the Nov ALYOF goal small as a result.

Other things I worked on at (or slightly before) the mini Stash Bash:


Green tea and sweet beans

Patchwork city

Raspberry kisses cat quilt

socks for mom

secret nautical sewing

Thread catcher

updating my done list from FAL...

FAL, Quarter Four, 2015

2015 FAL at On the Windy Side

To be fair, a lot of is being carried over from last quarter's list.  Then I got bit by the SHINY bug and added a crapton more.  Yup, that's how I roll.  On the upside, the mini Stash Bash is in Oct, so maybe I'll knock some of it out.  I am well aware that most of the knitting goals, at least, will roll over into 2016.  I'm cool with that.
