What motivates you to get things done? I’m one of those people who is motivated by lists! There’s just something about a notation on a list just waiting to be crossed off that makes me want to get it done, and the feeling that comes with scratching off another list item … well, there’s just nothing quite like it. The Finish Along, hosted by Adrianne from On the Windy Side this year, is the perfect challenge for those like me who need a list to keep you focused! You can find all the details by clicking on the button below, but basically, you create a list of unfinished projects at the beginning of each quarter, work on your projects throughout the quarter and share as you go along. Oh, and there are prizes, too!
I’m only submitting projects that are not business ones – primarily those for family, friends and swaps. This is one of the tools I’m using to help me sew more for my family and for fun this year! Here’s my list:
Steampunk Darth Vader wall quilt for my 15-year-old based on this tutorial from Shwin & Shwin
Elephant stuffy for an 8th birthday using this pattern from Funky Friend’s Factory
Crocheted Granny Square toss pillow
Drunkard’s Path mini-quilt for a special family member
Rainbow Quilt for my partner in the Instagram Rainbow Mini Swap
Last year’s Patchwork Posse Round Robin Quilt
Hexi Fairy Quilt for a certain someone’s 17th birthday
Curtains and pillow shams for my 15-year-old’s steampunk room
Mini-quilt for my partner in the Instagram Schnitzel & Boo Mini Quilt Swap
Organic cotton crib sheets and bedskirt
New cover for a used infant bouncy seat inspired by this post at GYCT
Matching pillow sham for the quilted toddler comforter that I recently finished
And, of course, my hexi log cabin quilt!
Do you have some crafty goals for this year? Are you motivated by making lists like I am? You still have a few days left to make a list and share it, if you’d like to join in!
