So do you want a laugh?

Sunday, 25 October 2009
I've just been sorting out my stash (it was starting to take over one end of the lounge!) and I have identified all the things that I want to complete before the baby arrives in April. The list (with their current status) is:
  1. Silly Safari Quilt - blocks and border all made, it just needs to be put together and quilted
  2. Scream House - all the stitching done
  3. Plaid quilt - two blocks made
  4. 2 x bags - one was a birthday present for my Mum in August and the other is supposed to be a christmas gift for my MIL
  5. 2 x Christmas stockings - pre quilted and have been cut out so just need to be put together
  6. Two advent panels - not started
  7. Alphabuddies quilt - for the baby, not started
  8. Slash and sew baby quilt - not started
  9. Raggedy pram quilt - not started
  10. Blue christmas quilt - fabric sorted
  11. Red christmas quilt - fabric sorted
  12. New Baby Sampler - for my Great Niece, promised by Christmas
  13. Baby Quilt - for my Great Niece as a Christmas gift
  14. Winnie the Pooh quilted book - Christmas gift for my nephew, cut out
  15. Grandma's thread minder - stitching all done
  16. Three in the tins from last year - stitching all done
  17. Sue Hawkins pin cushion - stitching all done
  18. Two Sue Hawkins book markers for teachers gifts - not started
  19. Noah's Ark baby quilt - working on
  20. Flannel quilt for Lia - top made, quilting to do
  21. Two Christmas panels - started last year, need finishing off
  22. Table topper - it's done other than finishing the quilting and sewing some binding
And if I run out of stitching to do I want to get on with Merry Christmas by the Letter!

So what do you think, realistic goals? Or are you sat there laughing as hard as I am right now? It's what, under nine weeks till christmas and I want to get a lot of that done in time to gift. And then there's the slowing down of being able to do anything during my last trimester (Jan - Mar).

Still, it's written down now so I shall keep you posted. I intend to alter the style of my monthly goals posts to have this list instead and we'll see how I do. At least I held off adding that I'd like to get some Baby Jane and Tail Feathers blocks done to catch up a little bit - I may be mad but I'm not totally insane LOL.
