2013 FAL Q4

she can quilt

I cannot believe I forgot to link up for the Quarter 3 of FAL 2013!  Dude, I even had finishes!!!  Agh!  Hahahahaa oh well, I have been very busy with this, this, getting ready to do this, and I'm even trying to lose some last minute pregnancy gain by doing this.  I have spent more time in the kitchen doing this 30 day cleanse than I have ever spent in my life.  I am totally distracted and it is taking up a lot of free time.

However, I am going to remain faithful to Leanne and accountable to myself and continue on with the Quarter 4 of the FAL!  As usually my focus has changed...but what else is new?  This is MRL we are talking about, I get easily distracted by shiny objects  beautiful fabric.  ;)

Project 1: Guild Nametag
Listen Steph, if you are reading this I am GOING TO DO IT RIGHT AFTER I FINISH THIS POST.  I SWEAR!  I, Rebecca Lynne _______-_____ am the worst Guild President ever for not finishing my nametag for my Guild's nametag challenge (uh, from May, which in my defense was a meeting I did not attend...however, I attended all the subsequent meetings and no I have not finished that nametag and yes I am going to burn eternally in sewing guild pergatory until I get my &@#! together...).  However, as I stated to our Guild Treasurer/good friend/and fellow AMH worshipper in late September, if I am going to do something I am going to do it well.  Better to be fashionably late than show up early and looking like a hot mess.  :p

Project 2: Zig Zag Quilts
Three Zig Zag, or Chevron or whatever you want to label it, Folksy Flannel Quilts for my girls for Christmas.  These are all cut but need to be finished.  I have one top down...
Zig Zag Folksy and Loulouthi Flannel Quilt Top

Project 3(+): Twin Quilts
I've made progress on this since last time...but still no FINISHES!  I better get this done before these damn twins are in college...  Just sayin'

Yeah - no comment.  I just need to quilt it and get it over with.

There are only a million more but I'm being realistic here.  :p

Linking up to FAL Q4!

I'm feeling your whole30 got no free time pain! I repeatedly fall off the wagon and live on sushi for the remainder of the month :) I don't know how they do it and have time to work let alone have hobbies!
I still love the zig-zag quilt and can't wait to see it finished - gotta love the AMH :D

1. I effing love your guts.

2. I'm thinking name tags are going to be mandatory for people to get their hands on SWAG so if you don't finish... then more for me! ;-)

Janine said...

I love your zig zag. Good luck with those finishes :)

Is the name tag done yet? ;-)

Great projects and I love that final photo.
