2014 Finish Along - Fourth Quarter
Anyone else starting to feel defeated? I mean where did the year go, and why in the heck can't I stay committed to finishing up these darn projects. I have certainly learned something this year while participating in the Finish Along. The quarters that are successful are the ones in which I make a short doable list. If I make a super long list, it just isn't going to happen, I give up and barely finish anything (like last quarter with one finish.) That being said, this quarter is going to consist of a short list, something I can actually accomplish. So here we go...
1. Postage Stamp Quilt - This one is insanely close to finished, I have the binding stitched onto the quilt, I literally just have to hand stitch it on the back, and then I'm done.
2. Bloom Bloom Pow Quilt - This quilt is quilted and trimmed, sitting awaiting for me to make binding and stitch it on. That is it folks, it just needs binding.
3. City Sampler Quilt - This quilt is sitting awaiting for me to quilt it, I really want to have this one done by Christmas, so hence it made the list this quarter.
4. Christmas Quilt - This one is just blocks, but it sure would be nice to actually use this one this Christmas, and I'm thinking it will be fun to work on a Christmas quilt around the Christmas holidays, so we shall see how far I get.
That is it, short doable list! As always, thank you Katy at The Littlest Thistle for hosting the Finish Along, it sure is nice to actually work towards my goals, whether I am successful or not, and I am appreciative of that! Well that is it for today, wish me luck on my list!

I think you and I have different criteria for doable...:D But then I looked at my goals for the rest of the year. Yup, your list is doable. :P

I finally set my list to "reasonable" instead of "ludicrous" this quarter, too. It seems to be do-able. Love the color of the star on the Christmas quilt.
