Hello everyone! 🙂 While you’re reading this, I’m having a girls break so you’ll only get to see how much I’ve done up thru Monday evening (when I’m writing this). My little girl’s Aunt came and picked up her & I and we went for a girls day on Tuesday; crafting with her, her daughter-in-law and her granddaughter on Tuesday night complete with a sleep over; and checking out a new thrift store in that area (we’re about 1.5 hours from my house). I’ll be back sometime later today. lol In the mean time, here’s what I’ve been working on this past week.
Hexies, hexies, hexies! (That’s them almost all packed up ready to go to our girls night of crafting in my portable zipped case)
I joined an IG swap hosted by @shawngorlich back in late November. Thankfully the due date isn’t until January 15th which is the only reason I joined. There was no way I’d get them done before the new year and I knew it. Each set is for 20 hexies: I joined in for 2 sets of animals, 2 sets of cats, and 2 sets of florals for a total of 120 hexies. 🙂 I got this.

The deer head quilt, well I pulled out the pile of khaki pants and the magazine for it. It’s on my to-do list to hopefully finish by the end of the month so I can start out the year with a UFO 2017 finish, a 2017 FAL Q1 finish, and an #apqresolution finish all in one! Nothing more to see other than the previous pic I shared except I’ve cut a number of seams out of the pants so far. But hey, that’s something! LOL I’m really hoping that I can do this as I’m imagining. I have OCD that involves numbers and patterns so doing anything improv or without a noticeable pattern or order really stumps me. BUT, I’m going to try! I can “see” it in my mind. I just hope that I can implement it satisfactorily.
Project Quilting challenge 1 – I’ve been working on this, but I’m not going to share pics until it’s finished. However, I will share this. Aside from the theme that is given for the week, I’ve also given myself a theme that I want to follow for all 6 challenges! My theme is going to be Alice in Wonderland. So, I’ll have to somehow fit the challenge theme for the week into my theme of Alice in Wonderland. This first one was easy. I’ll be excited to have 6 mini quilts on my wall, in a theme I love, that I made specifically for myself.
Other than that I’ve made a solid plan for another swap I joined on IG hosted by @thesouthernbobbin for an Applique Mini Quilt #miniappquilt which needs to be finished by 2/5. I’ll be using one of France Nadeau’s Downtown House patterns as the feature. I love all her house blocks! I’ll be starting on this as soon as I put down my Project Quilting project. 🙂
Plus, I’m joining in for the #threedandelions100 which already started. Remember the #100days100blocks following Tula Pink’s book 100 Modern Quilt Blocks where everyone was attempting to make 100 blocks in 100 days? Yea… Well, I fell off the bandwagon. Finishing these up is actually on my to-do list for 2017 (“these” as in I started on 2 of them at once). Anyhow, you can join in too! It’s for just 2 blocks per week. Go visit Three Dandelions Shop on IG for all the info.
What are you working on?
