Doesn’t that sound official? Downright corporate. But it’s only just us – us being my Kindred Spirits quilt group (or whatever we are calling ourselves these days – Quiltie Buddies Extraordinaire).
So, here’s the deal: since we all have a few (ahem) unfinished projects stuffed here and there, we decided on a plan to work on them this coming year. We each made a list of 11 projects, making sure to number them. At the first meeting of the month, we pull a number at random. That’s the project we work on some during the month.
We’re a user friendly bunch. You don’t have to finish the project. You can work on other projects, too. (Well, of course). Just a little progress. That’s the plan.
The number for January? #9
For me, that is the Asian Pyramid Triangles, a project I worked on with a friend quite a while ago. Last year this time, perhaps? In any case, Vickie, who is approximately a gazillion times more efficient than I am, finished hers. I got the top assembled as far as you see in the photo above. But I also had these bits ready to go.
So, more rows to the top. That’s the plan.
Meanwhile, I made up another iPad 2 sleeve using the pattern I posted over on Pattern Spot. I posted it in my Etsy Shop. I’m really impressed with how the button for closing the flap lined up with the circles on the fabric – pure serendipity.
And because I love making these (and I don’t even own an iPad!), I’ve got another ready to make up. Because who doesn’t love the Ghastlies?
I’m getting held up because I am out of fusible fleece.
Really. This is unheard of.
Our local Joann’s is moving to a bigger store – and I’m all for that. But it’s meant months of them not having anything left in stock (as they went into clearance mode months ago). I really underestimated how much of certain things I would need. Which leaves me out of my favorite linen and out of fusible fleece.
I could drive to the next town over and visit their JoAnn’s. In fact, I know I’m going to have to. Meanwhile? I’m just whining.
But it’s not like I don’t have anything to do in my sewing room, right? I mean, there is the 11 Project Progess Plan!
