First UFO Finish of 2014!

#finishin2014 #charityblanket

 

I’m happy to share that I managed my first UFO finish for 2014!

Quilt as you go with raggy edge.

 

This is a simple flannel quilt made using a Quilt As You Go technique, completed with raggy edges instead of binding. I had very little flannel to work with and decided to not add borders.

Now that this quilt is done, it will be donated to The Linus Connection.  I love the simplicity and softness of it and think it will make a very snuggly blanket for a little one in need.

Making it real. #finishin2014

 

#11 on the list is ready to be crossed off! You can see the quilt blocks, pre-piecing to the right of The List.

Next, I think I’ll tackle #5, the PoD Signature quilt. All it needs is a binding!

Mail from a very special friend! #owlpost

 

Also this week, I received some special Owl Post from my friend Amber. These two hoot-tastic potholders are twins to the two she sent to my best girlfriend! Also included was a fantastic Harry Potter postcard. My friends are THE BEST!

Random Doings

Buttercup complete!
Just this evening, I finished stitching my first set of blocks for the As You Wish Quilt & Stitch along.

 photo AYWBadge_zpsfd93af71.jpg

The Princess Bride. Seriously! The Buttercup blocks were designed by Elizabeth from Such A Sew & Sew. The quilt layouts for the event were designed by me.

Four Patch Layout for As You Wish
This is the one I’m using, though the more popular of my two designs for this event is definitely this one.

Making it real. #finishin2014
I did an epic post and my TTMT this week all about the UFOs I want to at least touch, and hopefully finish, in 2014. Today I made an actual, physical list on a giant piece of paper. My goal is to finish 2014 with less projects than I started with. I thought that maybe marking projects done from a real life list would inspire me and remind me of my goals!

New projects aren’t on this list, just stuff that’s been hanging around prior to this year.

Smug kitty is smug. One more of Merlin, then I'm done, promise! #mycatisadorable
Marie and Merlin say hello!

Four puzzle postcards for my David Tennant-loving daughter! Mailing one a day for the next four days. #geekmom #itsasecret
I made these postcards to send to my daughter. You see, I’m a giant geek mom and send my college freshman daughter a postcard every day. Yeah, you heard that right. EVERY day. She loves it. I love it. We’re all happy!

Anyway, I have these ancient printable postcards that are essentially a sheet of cardstock with perforations. To make these, I found an awesome wallpaper on fanpop.com by deedeedee123 and printed it to an 8 1/2″ x 11″ document without borders. It seriously worked a treat!

Because. David Tennant. Yeah.

#crochet
Current crochet project…for The Linus Connection, my longtime favorite, Sideways Shell.

This one is slow going because I’ve mostly been working on hand embroidery the last month. My monthly goal is to donate two blankets per month to The Linus Connection. I missed it by ONE blanket in 2013 and I was super bummed. Seriously. ONE short. Pffth. I’ll do better this year!

Super old UFO #1 for 2014!
This is the first UFO I’m tackling for 2014. It’s 11 on the list. *points up* I’ve already gotten a good start . It’ll be a baby blanket and will again be donated to Linus. This one is so ancient, I don’t even remember when or why I started it! So far, I have done a quilt as you go technique and have most of it done. The goal is to have this one finished before next Tuesday!
