Edna died on Saturday with her beloved husband Jack at her side. A peaceful end to a life well lived.
I wrote this post in advance, but as events overtook me I didn't get to post it and now it is well outside the time constraints. It doesn't matter, here it is anyway if anyone is interested to read of my progress. I have the Quarter 4 post part written too, I don't know if I am in time for that one or not but I'll post it in a day or two anyway.
Here is the post as written.......
The end of Quarter 3 and what did I achieve? Very little, but hey, we all have times like this when life takes over and we all must choose our own priorities. So what did I do? Here is the list...
1 Complete the top, layer, quilt, and bind my circles quilt.
I have made progress by completing the blocks, but the border still isn't finished let alone finishing the quilt.
2 Start my new quilt to be revealed later this month, I am aiming to make the first three parts.
No pic because it isn't started yet and it's a secret.
Started, but I haven't even finished the first section yet. But here is one of the first blocks I made for the Gypsy Wife Quilt.
I have made some progress, The elephants are layered and quilted and just need to be made into cushions, but I haven't started the other two yet..
4 Complete my Elephant and I quilt top, I cut the fabric strips last year then decided to change a couple of the colours, I haven't touched it since. So another one with no pic.
No, never even thought of it.
5 Finish all the mug rugs and coasters I blogged about here. Yes, its a tall order I know but I'm going to make the effort. Here is a pic of some of them.
Did one elephant, messed it up and somehow added the wadding but no backing??? Some of the others have been quilted but no binding has been added, yet.
6 Layer quilt and bind my Little House in the Woods quilt. You have seen it before but here it is again. To tell the truth I'm afraid of making a mess of it.
Still haven't touched it.
7 Make the Ugly Christmas Sweaters quilt, so far one block done and I'm not happy with that!
What did I tell you? absolute rubbish, no excuses, yes I had stuff going on, but so do we all.
I did do the Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop though and that was great fun, AND, I made a lovely cushion out of one of the test reject blocks.
You may well have seen it before but I HAVE to show you a finish and it appears to be the only one of the quarter, I don't believe it!
I could have just not bothered to link up to the FAL but in compiling this post I am reminded of how well I was doing earlier this year and how much I have slipped in the last three months.
So, here I am linking up with Nicky @ Mrs Sew and Sew but there are other hosts all over the globe.
