Coming up in February... Possibly....

Joining in a thousand and one challenges means a list.  I love a good list.  So what have we got?

Needlequest this month is Japan.  I was going to give it a miss as I didn't have a good idea and I want to work more on my crewel, but then I saw this post at Button Button where she's having a sampler-along.  This month is Sashiko.  Two for the price of one!

I'll attempt to join in with Something Old, Something New again.  I really need to work on Jacob's quilt, so that will be my "old".  I'll probably try to do the ribbonwork again for my "new" but I reserve the right to change that!

I'm eagerly awaiting the next block of the Sew Kitschy BOM... wonder if I can get it sewn and finished into something before the end of the month?

The Craft Book Sew Along is a staple for me.  I'm bound to make something from a book this month.  I don't know what yet, so we'll see!

The same goes for New to Me in 2014, though I am going to a class on Soutache so I feel at least one entry coming on!

I'll endeavor to work on my projects for the 2014 Finish A Long again.  No promises!
1. Restart and finish Crewel Flowers 
2. Finish hooking my rug 
3.  Finish Jacob's quilt.  So far I have cut 16 squares so a long way to go with that one! 
4. Sew chair cushions for my dining room.  I have completed 1 piece of patchwork for 1 chair and now I've lost it... 
5. Handquilt/machine quilt my And Sew On quilt. 
6. Finish the wrist warmers I'm crocheting. 
7. Cross stitch the last Silhouettes picture for my dad. 

I'll pick out another cover kit for the Smalls Sew Along, and show you January's too!

For A Lovely Year of Finishes I'm going to get Jacob's quilt top done.  I am.  I AM!

And for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, this month is pink, so a pink scrap bucket should be looming!

So that's only 10 things I'm joining in with...  Anyone else over committed?

I hope you have plenty of coffee! Sounds like you'll be very busy!

Overachievers unite! My list of unfinished projects is at least that long, although I'm trying to keep a reasonable view of things. Go you!

Sarah in Stitches said...

Wow, you're going to be really busy! Can't wait to see your progress :D

That's too stressful for me - I'd rather undercommit and have a chance of being successful :D The soutache class interests me!

No wonder you need lists! Have fun with whatever you get done this month, I shall enjoy looking at the recap at the end. I've got to go and take a sneaky peak at my list, not sure I can cross anything of it yet

you will not get bored with all these projects, look forward to seeing how they go, like you I have quite a list but not as long as yours, mind you I might add more soon as there is so much I want to try

Woah!I only have a block to sew, some rows of blocks to sew together into a top and the moose quilt to finish! This list is scary!

There's lots to keep you busy this month, I look forward to seeing your progress. Thanks for stopping by my blog, I live near Birmingham. Deb x

Looks like you have a lot going on! My "new" technique will be something I'm learning in class. I love learning new things.

You won't have time to go out and work at this rate, Wendy:-) Variety is the spice of life or so they say. Have fun! I'm aiming to use my craft books more.

you will have a full month.
I am going to try to make my Kitchen block tomorrow. I have to pick out the perfect fabric for my cookie jar.

Aw what a cute bunny. I wish I could sew as well as you. Your bag will be useful for so many things. I have several bags i throw my crochet in to carry around. Have a great week.
