TTMT #545 – Fast Talking

As you can probably see, I’m feeling much better today! I was sick most of the week and just started feeling like myself again yesterday. Thank you to everyone for the good wishes. Fortunately, it never got worse than a head cold.

Several people have asked for the size of the tote I used for the 2/12″ strips. It’s currently packed for my sewing adventure, so I will try to get that to you next week. I can tell you it’s a Sterlite container and it’s 9″ wide on the inside. That’s how wide I folded the strips. 😉

Thanks for watching! ♥

TTMT #543 – Big Finish Little Finish

Hello, friends!

The Silent Auction is over and we’re waiting for another medical test with results to follow in a couple of weeks.

I am slowly but surely getting the finishing touches on the sequel to Happy Hour and hope to have that ready to share soon!

Thank you for watching. ♥

Hello, friends.

Real-life keeps doing its thing. I’ve got a few good things to share with the “hurry up and wait” that has been the last couple of months.

Random Doings

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

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!
