I missed the sign up to the 100 Day Hustle over at Kelsey Sews (blissfully out of range on a coastal holiday) but I am going to follow along anyway. I don't need fabric prizes to motivate me BUT accountability is essential. So I will be accountable nonetheless.
I can't think in terms of the REST of the year but I will be faithful to my 'to do first' commitment for October. My 'to do' list is a LOT smaller now that Zakka Style has left the building after 6 months of inflating my list.
Passport Cover - later this month we are off on a family cruise to the Pacific Islands of New Caledonia, Loyalty and Vanuatu. So this will be essential to hold our 5 Passports. I purchased the pdf pattern and tutorial from One Shabby Chick on Etsy.
QCA Bee #1 October Block - a nice easy block for Kay @ Shocking Hocking.
Wombat Stew - A very cute House block for Jane @ Where Jane Creates.
'Say Cheese!' Polaroid Block Swap - 10 more to do.
Mystery Quilt (back) - this will be a gift for the Preschool Director in December so I had better get a wriggle on.
Very Merry HST Block of the Fortnight - with Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts. I have 3 to catch up on so far.
LIKE to do:
4 Liberty fabric pillow cases - to match the 'Liberty Cross' quilt I gave to Jean last year.
6 Halloween fabric pillow cases - to match the Halloween quilts I made for the kids last year. They kind of look a bit weird with Toy Story, Thunderbird and Babushka pillow cases.
Katie Jump Kites - baste this monster quilt. I may not get a chance to quilt it until November as I hope to borrow my mum's embroidery machine with a longer arm.
'Little Stitches' Embroidery - My machine has been in for its annual service this past week and so whilst on holidays I have been sewing by hand some of Aneela's patterns. I am not sure what I will make with them though.
DON'T WANT to do:
Craftsy BoM - I have to catch up on June, August, September and October.
HOPE to do:
Sherbert Dreams - maybe start this quilt finally!
Tall Boy runner & Larger Nesting Box - to match the rest of the bedroom runners and Zakka Style nesting boxes.
So how is your list looking for October?
'To Do First' is the brainchild of Charlotte @ Lawson and Lotti.
