Finish A Long Qtr 3 Proposed Finishes

Time for a bit more navel gazing, gosh, I hate that phrase. Anyway, time to link up all my dirty washing, all my unfinished works in process. Here we go in no particular order:

1 Quatrefoil quilt
for my grandson, a beeabee2017 quilt. Half quilted and binding already sewn on.
Finish quilting and hand stitch down binding. Should have been finished for this weekend. A likely finish.

2 Playtime Plus quilt, aka Sandra's Scraps

Partially quilted. Blogged about this week, should have been finished by link up of this week. A likely finish.

3 Economy Square Quilt
Economy square quilt, it does what it says on the tin. Made from a year long subscription to a Japanese fabric charm club bought by my daughter in law. Just (!) needs blocks sewn together, basted, quilted. Liklihood of a finish? Highly unlikely!
4 Liberty Hexie Quilt
I have been at this for as long as I have been quilting in this recent reincarnation. I want to finish this, yet I never want to finish this. You see I love it so much. Most of the two ring hexie circles are sewn together. A finish? Maybe, maybe not.
5 Kingfisher Stitch A Long Epp
This is a newbie making an appearance for its first time. In fact it is more of new project than an unfinished project. A real wip. Liberty epp, sewn onto diamonds. What's not to love? How far am I? half of the hexies done, no diamonds cut out.
6  Beekeeper Cardigan
On to the knitting now. My beekeeper cardigan, a 4 day knit a long, which is taking me rather longer. About 10 days so far, but that's ok, I am enjoying it. Love it, love it, love it. Likelihood of finish? I would bet money on this on.

7 Timely Cardigan
I love this. I was knitting this until the Beekeeper cardigan came along. Now there is a bit of a thing. I was knitting a size slightly too small and hoping for the best. Now the pattern has been updated with larger (?) sizes. Should I keep going or rip and start again? Likelihood of a finish? Possibly. Possibly not. Trust me I have started this, but I don't have any photos.

8. My Luna Sky Wrap
Should have made this ages ago. Apparently it only takes 20 minutes.
So, that's it. Not all my projects by any means, but the ones that come to mind. What would life be without a project? Somebody famous must have said that somewhere sometime.

  1. Pretty ambitious goals, and that’s only some of them? You’ll be keeping very busy!

  2. What would life be like without projects. Well you've said it. That's famous enough for me. All wonderful projects Helen.

  3. You have enough projects to keep you out of trouble for a little while.

  4. These are all wonderful! I love the combo of handwork, knitting and big quilts. On behalf of the FAL crew, good luck and thank you for joining in on the fun!

  5. That's quite a list. Good luck. I think it's a rule that we must have lots of projects on the least that's what I tell myself. LOL


Thank you so much for your comment, I try very hard to reply to them all.
