Finish Along 2016 Q3 - the list

I'm resurrecting the blog to join the 2016 finishalong in an attempt to give myself a kick up the bum to get things finished. This is the realistic short list, as things are startingto get busy with the new business. I was hoping that I would get more free time once I'd got everything up and running, but perhaps not! So, heres the list:

1. Make myself a dress whilst there's a chance of some sunny weather! Fabric pictured is from Sew Over It,  the pattern is from a block making course I did in January. 

2. Baby Quilt - this is for a special baby due in August so I need to geta move on. I'm currently on a train from Newcastle-London with some of these blocks to handsew.

3. O's big boy quilt . This is so nearly there, just needs a bit more quilting and binding.

4. My birthday quilt - just need to add borders and send it off!

FAL 2016 Q1

OK, so we've got about 8 months worth of sewing to catch up on, but we've got a deadline here, so we'll do that later.......(*wonders if that is the closest possible translation of the phrase "maƱana" into English*)

2016 FAL

So, here's my FAL Q1 list:

1. Quilt O's quilt - I made this very, very quickly when my Gran passed away last year to keep me occupied. O absolutely loves it and gets v excited every time he sees it, so I probably should finish it.

2. Finish my quilt. We've kept v few of my makes, and I'm 30 in a few months - so I'm making myself a present. DH says he'll pay to have it long armed as a present.  


So far I've made a selection of blocks, all in various tones of blues and low volume prints. Hopefully they'll come together in the end!

A short and sweet collection, new job and major kitchen renovation = not likely that Q1 will be very productive!
