I am working my way through my lists. Slow and steady wins the race, so they say. Not sure who exactly 'they' are though!!
This week I have been focusing on Christmas. Only 68 days to go which means just 75 to the end of the year. All I keep thinking is '100 Day Hustle'. I have been trying to get my Vintage Holiday quilt done which needs to be 100% completed by tomorrow to be able to add it to the linky party over on Fabric Mutt. Last night I was working on the quilting and Mr Toyota decided to have a tantrum. Typical. I decided to walk away from the sewing machine so not to ruin my nice Christmas quilt so I am trying to finish it up tonight. Did I mention it is due tomorrow? Yikes. Nothing like a deadline to keep me motivated! And the best bit if I do get it finished is that it will be completed in time for the holidays! Here it is at the basting stage late Monday night:
I've also got three white balls on the go.
Lots of you guessed correctly - they are in fact going to become a snowperson. These are the body parts which may [or may not] be for a Christmas decoration swap... ;) I've already made a Christmasy bird but I think it is too big for a Christmas tree so I'm making a different ornament/decoration. My partner has a wide selection of favourites in her inspiration mosaic so I will eventauly make her something she loves, I hope!
Linking up to Freshly Pieced for WiP Wednesday. Gotta run - must get this quilt done!!
Also linked to Shwin&Shwin.
The Christmas quilt is looking fab. I hope that Mr Toyota is behaving tonight. Di x
Naughty mr Toyota! Hope he's cooperating tonight
A great looking quilt! I need to get my sew on to get some things finished up =D
It's looking great, Amy! That quilt is on my list -- perfect for Christmas! Hope you'll link it up to TGIFF! for OctoberQuest.
Love your vintage quilt - I need to get going on mine!
I love this quilt...wonderful that you are going to finish for the holidays.

Your Mojo is going great guns.. I think I must publish an online 'to do' list that will help keep me focused and on track.. Love that Chris***s quilt.. I have it all ready to go but it may not be this year..
Lovely Christmas Quilt Amy!
That quilt is looking wonderful! I've only made 9 of the blocks so far, so have got no chance of finishing it in time to link up!
I hope Mr Toyota plays fair so you can get it done!
