2012 Finish-A-Long 2nd qtr post

Well it is time to link up for the pre 2nd quarter linky party over at Quilter in the Gap. Let's see I have 3 months. What do I want to get done this time around, this is a little different than the Just 3. These projects have to be 100% done. Not just a goal. So..........(thinking) Ok Off to take photos of the tops I want finished to show they are not finished yet.

1. Yellow monochromatic quilt.

2. Turtle Bay. This one has been sandwiched and pin for over a year now waiting on the domestic machine. But now I have a long arm............guess I will be pulling out the pins. :D

3. The snowman quilt. This one is pinned and half quilted. Guess it is time to finish it and be done with it. Binding is already cut and waiting, so it shouldn't take too long. I will finish it on the domestic though, it is small enough.

This is probably a lot for me this month as I will more than likely be working 14 hour days 6 days a week for the next month while my boss goes on vacation. I don't think I will get much sewing in. But having goals sometimes push you where you normally won't go. Start with 15 minutes while dinner is digesting, and see if I can keep my eyes open long enough to finish what I started.

What about you? Are you doing the 2012 FAL challenge too?

I know all about 14 hour days. It is very difficult to sew even on your day off when all you want to do is NOTHING!!!!

Good luck with the challenge. Sometimes a little motivation gets us all moving in the right direction for a while. Looks like you've got three achievable goals ready and waiting. Now all you need to do is follow through!
