Quarter 3 goals

So far this year, I have finished 11 projects.  I'm really enjoying the Finish-Along hosted by Adrianne, because in addition to being fun, I think it has given me a lot of extra motivation to actually finish things.

I stated last quarter that my list is more for the year (and probably beyond) than simply this quarter, and that is still the case.  The benefit being that I can choose what to work on based on what I'm in the mood for, and that works for me.  I also want to concentrate on finishing things and tying hard not to add projects, so in that vein there is only new project--a sewing machine cover, for the new machine that I got in late March.

Sewing machine cover 3-demnsional project Pattern chosen; fabrics chosen

While I do want to be free to decide in the moment what to work on, here are some of my top priority projects:

 "Sarah," which may or may not get renamed.  It got this far many, many years ago. I've since taken the layers apart, gotten rid of all the borders, and put a new border on.  This one is getting a bit of a makeover!

Project Linus quilts.  There are fabrics for three here: Winnie-the-Pooh, dinosaurs, and wizards & stars.

Paper Pieced Trees. I've made 2 more trees, and now need a 4th to make my wall hanging.  This is my first paper piecing project.

Ticker Tape Elephant.  I've got the outline stitched and she's layered, so all I have to do is use my scraps to create the elephant.  And, you know, stitch everything down!

Here's to a productive quarter 3!
