On finishing

I probably shouldn't be thinking about this with just a few days before the wedding, but I am. I was reading Nicke's post this morning about her 2nd quarter goals for finishing projects, and decided to make my own list.
When the dust settles, there are a few projects I really want to complete. I tried to keep my list reasonable, and am resisting the urge to add additional items.

So, I, Jacey, vow to finish the following before the end of June:

1)

Swoon blocks done

Swoon.
Oh, yes. I want to finish this one. Blocks are done. I started sewing the top together, but it is incomplete, and a back has not been made.

2)

WIPs: Ballband Washcloth

My ballband washcloth.
I'm about 60% done, so this one is a gimme. But hey, we all need an occasional easy win, right?

3)

WIP: Echo Stamp Mini

The Echo postage stamp mini.
The top and back are done, but this has not been basted yet.

4)

More. More. MORE!

The improv patchwork quilt.
The top is about halfway assembled, but I probably need a few more blocks to get it to the size I'd like. The back is not pieced.

5) Wonky Bee, BAGS and do.Good Stitches bee blocks (which by the end of June is a total of 10 blocks).

6) I'd really like to make two garments for myself. A pair of Iris shorts and a Wiksten tank.

7) Three clutches for my neighbor, who is getting married in June. I'll be using Noodlehead's Envelope Clutch Pattern.

8) Finally, I intend to participate in Kelly's My Precious QAL. I haven't decided what fabrics I'll use, but I definitely want to use some of my hoarded lovelies.

So, that's my list! I'm linking up with Rhonda's Finish Along!
There's a few days left. Join in!

  5. How on earth you have room for anything other than the wedding in your brain right now amazes me! But crafty projects are fun to think about, so I get it:). Still loving your swoon-I think it may be my favorite of all I've seen...

  8. This is a great idea! I actually did the Three Things this month and have set smaller goals for each week so that I am actually accomplishing things with my older projects...otherwise I get so distracted by newer and fun things. Your Swoon is going to be so fabulous - can't wait to see it finished!
