Or "Am I Crazy?". A is off to Charleston for the next six weeks and with all of my spare time I'm going to challenge myself to finish a project a week. Some of the projects are already started so I'm confident that it is possible. I might not sleep for the next month and a half but that's what coffee is for.
In no particular order here are the players:
This fabric is destined to be a new purse just for me. I can't wait to start this one since I desperately need a new bag!
Next up is the shoulder bag for my A's mom. This will be either her Christmas or birthday gift. I haven't decided yet.
This is the entrelac pillow I started this weekend. The colors of the yarn and the cooler air outside are whispering that fall is coming. Hooray for cooler weather! I finally turned off the air conditioner this morning and opened all the windows. Ahh, sweet, fresh air.
All women, deep in their hearts, love cowboys. I didn't run away with any cowboys in my life (well not yet anyway) but I did start this cowboy quilt. Which I love. I started piecing this an embarrassing number of years ago. It was languishing because of a mistake that needed taking out. I just un-pieced and then re-pieced most of the top in the past week due to a friend's cajoling. Thanks Mel!
I've had the fabric for this gem longer that I've had the Cowboy Quilt. I bought the all the fabric for a quilt and then decided that I didn't really like the pattern after all. One night while sitting on the couch and staring at my fabric for awhile it hit me: the fabric wanted to be a plus quilt. All this little beauty needs is to be sandwiched, quilted and bound. Easy peasy right?
That brings my total queue to five. I have a few more options waiting in the wings. I haven't decided yet which one it'll be. Although at the rate I'm going I'll be lucky to get five projects done in six weeks.
Wish me luck!~A
