A Q3 Goals list

I had two finishes for Q2, but you’ll have to wait for TGIFF next week (July 24) to see the bigger one. I’ll give you a hint – it’s a quilt 🙂 My other finish was this Side Hustle laptop bag from the Bag of the Month Club. I did previously share this on Instagram. […]

Small but Satisfying (TGIFF)

Welcome to Port Hope Ontario today for Thank Goodness it’s Finished Friday. It’s also Good Friday, a day of reflection. It’s a day to be thankful for family, friends, clean drinking water, and safety. The streets are quiet, with many walkers enjoying the spring sunshine. The upheaval of schedules due to Covid 19 has given […]

A Beachy Bag Finish-a-Long

With millions of people around the world hunkered down in social distancing, I expect this will be a fantastic quarter for finishes in the Finish-a-Long. My week at work was crazy busy getting people started on assignments from their homes and trying to come up with some kind of schedule for myself. In between all […]

One monthly goal for February

I have been sewing a lot, but I feel I need to knuckle down on some UFO’s, so I’m going to try joining up with One Monthly Goal at Elm Street Quilts. My sister and her husband are coming up on their 25th wedding anniversary so I need to finish up the quilt I have […]

Q1 2020 finish a long goals

The finish-a-long has moved over to instagram, but I’m going to post my list here as well. If for no other reason that it’s easier for me to find. I pulled out my 2017 Quilters Planner to use the project page to list everything (plus a pair of purple mittens). There is a pdf available […]

Goals for 2019-Q4

And , rolling into the last quarter of the year, shall we see what’s on the list this time? 1. Summer sampler for my sister, add final border and quilt. 2. Glamp Stitchalot 2015 which is for me – add final border and quilt 3. On Ringo Lake – finished in Q1 4. Beach Ball […]

Cozy

As the temperature drops, I’ve squeaked in with another finish for the Q3 finish-a-long (original list here). Socks for me are a long term project for otherwise idle moments, and these ones turned out great. The pattern is from Eclectic Sole, a book from my local library, and the first time I have tried two-colour […]

Warm weather skirt finish

“Mom, since when do you wear a skirt?” “Why can’t you just say, gee, that’s a nice skirt, you look pretty.” This is the size XL of the Oliver + S Everyday Skirt, really easy to make. I’m not sure I like the 1/2″ elastic (two rows), I had to gather it a lot before […]

Quick shorts

I rediscovered these shorts — or at least the pieces — a few weeks ago. My daughter is 9 and after wearing her last pair into holes, I knew I should get these made up. The cutting was a bit crooked but at the end of the day, the $3/metre remnant fabric from 5 years […]

Finally a finish (TGIFF)

Hello, and welcome to TGIFF for July 26. It seems like forever since I’ve had a finish–at least of such a long time UFO (unfinished object). I confess, playing with pretty fabric is my favourite activity meaning more quilts seem to get started than finished. This was a bee quilt from 2014 (yikes) . I […]
