Quarter 2, FAL 2017, my list




Quarters Two and Three tend to be my most productive.  That said, while I get a lot done, I also tend to start a lot more than I can actually finish...which keeps my GIANT Wips list constantly replenishing.  Ah well.  At least I never get bored.


For the new folk, here's a quick low down on me:

I'm a teacher in Atlanta.  I live with a lovely husband, a slightly moth eaten looking tuxedo cat, and a super lovey now deaf cocker spaniel.

I'm more than a tad obsessive compulsive/ADHD.

I make quilts.  I pretend I don't sew garments, but I am still trying to learn. I have two patterns I tend to make A LOT.

I sew quilts for Hospice, on my own and with the Serenity Circle from do.good.stitches.  It's my way of honoring the legacy of my grandmother, who used to knit and sew for charity.

I tend to be addicted to quilt alongs.  Maybe some day I'll run one myself.

I'm a geek.  I love Doctor Who, Orphan Black, Dirk Gently, Star Trek (in all forms, old and new), and Star Wars (with a few of the new trilogy that I still refuse to make eye contact with).

Cotton and Steel is my spirit animal.  (You are bound to see a bunch of it in my quilts.)

I bellydance in my "spare" time.  When my knee cooperates.  In theory, I'm losing weight to combat knee issues.

Without further ado, the list of crazy.  A bunch of these are BOMs.  I know I can't likely finish them this quarter, but I want to keep them on my radar.  (The sad thing is this isn't my entire WIP list.)

  2. how on earth will you choose what comes to retreat with you? I think you need to have Chrissy come and retread that serger so you can get some stuff finished up.
