I am working towards completing my works in progress.  I really have the bug to get everything wrapped up and decks cleared to start some new projects.

This.  This is the white whale.  I must have this quilt.  I must.  I have the ombre bundle sitting in my studio.  I have the desire. I probably have the skill.  I want to own that quilt.

I want to focus on it completely.


And so I am wrapping up things.   Last weekend I finished a quilt top so it could be sent for quilting.  I wanted to finish a project per weekend, but didn’t get there this weekend. And I am fixated on how much “done” do I need to be.  I have a plethora of orphan blocks that should be used for something useful.  What do I do about those?  I am going to use them up.  These decks are going to be cleared!!


  1.  New quilt for our bed.  We growed-up the decorations in our room and so I want a new quilt to go with them.
  2. Living Room wall hanging.  I created a new wall hanging for our living room not that long ago.  But these mysterious black stains appeared on it when it was washed and it bugs me unreasonably.  I want to create a new one to replace it.  Goal for getting this done is 1/31.

4. Lots and lots of Project Linus quilts.  I think most of these orphan blocks from my abandoned farm girl vintage quilt and those that I didn’t use in my stepdaughter’s quilt will make great Project Linus quilts.  But creating all of those quilts could take me another 3 months.  :/  My “find the gray” compromise will be to work on these interspersed with the WIPs above.  I got a start on a baby-sized quilt this weekend with some orphan blocks.


Here is to getting stuff done!!
