Well, that didn’t happen. Maybe I was ponied out after working on the Summer border and those grape leaves just weren’t calling for love. However, there were quite a few other accomplishments in October. For some reason when I kept looking at the number of items on the WIP and to be Finished Spreadsheet, having the total over 60 bugged me — maybe not enough to keep me from starting anything new but at least with the first new start, I also finished it so it didn’t get on the list…
Then there was the machine applique class at a local fabric shop…
Then there was the Seuss Safari quilt that got blogged about earlier.
And the Joy Tree that got finished as a pillow with my first self-made piping.
And binding of the Lavender Waves quilt —
And now my list is under 60 items but in order to keep it under 60 and still be able to start Stars for a New Millennium – I need to finish at least one more project. Will it be the Binding on my Batik Mystery Fairy Quilt or will it be the stitching and making into a pillow of Town of Halloween.
Right now Town of Halloween is winning because I want to put it away with the Halloween decorations when I take them down this weekend.
So up next month is making quilt blocks for the Christmas quilt that I started back in 2005… I think I’m almost half way through the 56 blocks but the goal is to get them all completed and sized ready to sew together when I work on it next year.
