It's Monday, and I already feel behind...

The plan was to catch up, but it didn't entirely work.
How does time pass so quickly!

I have the three Cyclops hats done. I'll try to get pictures of them tomorrow. (They're living in my classroom.) I also painted three huge flats in faux wood panelling. It's not as good as I wanted it to be, but I ran out of brown paint.

I finished my first Swoon block today. I am thinking of making a small quilt with 4 blocks.
Here's #1:

I don't think I ever posted a pic of this Skillbuilder block. It's wonky as hell. I think I should have starched it.
Skillbuilder, block #?
Anyone out there got a good non scented starch to use? The perfume makes me hivey.

I repaired the popped binding on the Dead Simple Cross Quilt...which means I have 4 out of my 8 projects DONE for the first quarter.

My plan was to catch up on Sew. Happy. Quilt. blocks today...only got one done, but I like it:
Sew. Happy. Quilt. QAL pinwheel
As of tomorrow's new posting, I'll be 3 behind. I have the pieces cut out for one. The goal tomorrow....catch up on Sew. Happy. blocks and start the Sparkle. I have the pieces cut...and I have an intended home for it when it's done, I think...

What are y'all up to?

ps. didn't win the bundle over at Quokkaquilts...but I was/am really proud to have made it as far as I did.

  3. Sure, you're getting there, and the great thing about QALs is that you can be a late as you like finishing them :o)
