For September I thought we’d do something a little different. It’s still all about finishing, but since there are some specific things I want to get motivated to finish, I thought I’d add this extra part… and since I am hosting the challenge, I’m allowed to, right?! But I think many of you will like it….
So, I’m going to have this month’s challenge in two parts. You can join in on one, both, … um… er… of course none if you so choose 🙂
Part A – is the same as the last two months – finish a UFO that has been lying around for more than a month. Really, I don’t care how long it has been a UFO – whatever your definition is, is fine by me 🙂 I just want us all to get things done that we have started. Just finish a UFO – big, small, made of paper, wool, fabric, paint, whatever. Please let me know when you finish it and either send me a pic or point me to a pic on your blog that I can pinch.
Part B – this is only for quilters I’m afraid. It is to finish a BLOCK for ANY quilt (UFO or just started). I don’t know about you, but I have so many blocks I need to finish for last year’s BOMs, not to mention this year’s BOMs… and with new quilts coming up every month in the blogworld… well, I want to concentrate on finishing some of them!!!! So my challenge is to finish as many blocks as possible this month. You can work out what your definition of a block is. Small block, big block, stitched block, applieque… Again, just as long as you are finishing….
Ok, let’s get busy!!! I took a bit of time this morning to tidy up my sewing table a little, until I started feeling whoozy and thought I’d better get back to my easy chair.. hee heee…. I guess I might have felt good when I got up, but wasn’t as good as I thought I was!
My first goal for Part B is to do the last block for Gail Pan’s Christmas Wishes BOM. I had it traced out for when I went into hospital, but didn’t get around to doing anything on it. And for Part A – when I am ready to sit and use Nina again, I will FINISH MY SEWING BAG!! Really, I will!!! That’s the plan anyway 🙂
Who’s joining in and what are your goals? Leave a comment here or email me. Let’s get finishing!!!! (And yes… another charm pack will be up for grabs at the end of the month!)
