FAL Progress: not much

This is one of those I-think-I’ll-beat-myself-up posts.

I’m participating in the Finish-A-Long this quarter, after having such a gang-busting last quarter.  Really, I was hot hot hot.

FAL Q2_2013These were my goals.

1. I glimpsed the Hunter’s Star quilt top when I was finishing up the vacuuming after my sister and her husband left (they stayed with us for a few days and we had great talks).  It’s still hanging there, waiting for a border or two and then a trip to the quilter.

2. Hey! I finished something–the Four-in-Art * Fire quilt, titled Doloket.

3. Hey!  Something else was completed.  Guess I might not have to hate myself so much.  Yes, I did finish the Italy quilt — a Schnibbles quilt — part of Another Year of Schnibbles on Sheri and Sinta’s blogs.  Title: Take Me Back to Italy.

4.  I can’t finish this one, as the sample is hanging in the shop — the shop owner likes it unfinished so she can show people what machine appliqué looks like from the back.

5.  Oh, right.  Next.

6. Finished this one, woohoo!  Title: Lollypop Treat.

7.  What was I thinking even listing this?  Next.

8. Sigh.

So, I guess it’s not total loathing here in Riverside, just partial.  But the one good thing about this FAL is that keeps me honest, and usually focused.  But I had to add in another Schnibbles (above, as I know no post is good without photos), and I slipped in Christine’s Philadelphia because the idea was burning in my brain.  Okay, confessional over.  I guess I should get to work.

  1. I love all your projects….for me it would be a challenge to decide “which” one to work on. I have my UFO’s too….way to embarrased to post about them…primarily, because it would be like step one…admit you have a problem….giggle….. You have some amazing finishes. I love your sisters Philadelphia the best, even if the picture is not on this post….

  2. Your posts always make me smile Elizabeth. A great example of good honest blogging that’s inspiring as well. One of these days I’ll get mine going.
