Despite fizziling out early on last year - I am determined to give the Fiber of All Sorts - Lovely Year of Finishes another go! Why? Do I hear you ask - well frankly I need the motivation to complete some of the projects that I have envisioned, brought the materials for and then just sat them on the cutting table thinking, yeah I must make that.
So without further ado, here is what I am planning on FINISHING this January.....
#1 - I have already cut out hubby a pair of sleeps shorts in this fabric - but am yet to sew them up. I have made so many PJ bottoms both short and long in my life that I can sew them in my sleep - but the thought of having to change the overlocker thread from white to black stopped me from making these. I had to change it to make a pair for my brother for Christmas - so no excuses now.
#2 - Both of my kidlets are fox mad (they may have inherited this love from a friend of my sister's who introduced us to the song..... What did the FOX say?) and when I saw this pattern from Me and My Red Boots, I knew we had to get it. Anyway, Mr 5 1/2 is currently staying with my parents for a couple of weeks as a holiday before he starts big school. My plan is to make one of the fox blocks into a cushion and send it to him as a surprise. He has no idea!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait!
#3 - The Bonnie & Camille Charm Swap Quilt - I only have a few more rows to sew on before I can sandwich and then quilt in the ditch. If I can finish this one this month at least it would be one less UFO WIP.
#4 - The dreaded Everyday Angels quilt! I have been making this quilt for the past *Sigh* 10 years now - so this is the year that I plan to make one block each month until it is done. This quilt belongs to my Mum - so I am planning on giving it to her for her birthday in September, unless I surprise myself and can have it done in time for Mother's Day! As much as the block comes together quickly - I am hand appliqueing it - so it is taking a while to complete.
