WIP Wednesday 12.4.13

Now that it's December I need to look at what I want to accomplish in 2014.  My WIP list is long...  I would like to get my WIP list down in 2014.  I'm not going to promise to not start any new projects because I know that I will.  I know I will continue to participate in the monthly Block Lotto drawings and do a few things for my local quilt guild.  Here's 29 finishes I hope to complete in 2014.  It's an ambitious list, but I think I can do it.  This is what I would like to accomplish in 2014:

Here's what happened this week:
I completed 2/3 of step 1 for Celtic Solstice.



I got four of twelve blocks done for step 2 of the Downton Abbey QA -- Notice this isn't even on my finishes for 2014 list!



I sorted and organized a lot of my scraps.  I cut a big jar of 2"squares.  I will do these as "filler" blocks here and there for when I need some mindless sewing and make a scrap vomit quilt.


I'm working on the binding for my tall geese Block Lotto quilt.

  1. Best of luck in 2014 Kathy, I try to catch up every year and have even been successful I believe once! It is just to fun to NOT start new projects. Speaking of which, gotta run have some things for an upcoming Girl Scout bazaar to finish!

  2. At least you have all your thoughts organized on here. I need to do that! A friend of mine is doing the Downton Abbey QAL as well.
