My to do list is rapidly becoming the i didn't list...

So last Friday when i posted this finish, i updated my 3rd quarter FAL list, and i have to say, not a lot of progress is being made for this round. I've managed to finish four things on the list so far... my list has 18 projects on it!! Where did i fall off the rails people?!

So i have about three weeks to finish 14 projects, so. not. going. to. happen.

And i have to tell you folks, my fourth finish opened up a can of worms that i'm unable to control!
So this is what started the landslide...


That's right! I finished it! I used some gorgeously soft dark grey wool and i love how all the little bits of AMH Field Study pop off it! I want to thank the amazing Gina again for sending me the AMH charm pack that i used for this, and let her know that it's because of this my bedroom has now been repainted, which led to needing to buy a new bed, and then fabric for new curtains needed to be picked out, as well as fabric to make some new pillowcases and last but certainly not least, now i need to make a quilt for my bed! I'm going all AMH on this room! Seriously, it's going to be ridiculous. I can't wait! Oh and if anyone wants to make one of these fabulous pillows the tutorial for the Star Dresden can be found here, that girl that wrote it... wow, so talented and funny too! Really folks you need to check out her blog ;)

Anyhoo onto the WIP of the day. Due to an unscheduled redecorating marathon in the bedroom, no sewing was done this past weekend. So i've fallen a bit behind in my Penny Sampler progress. The minute the boys were out the door today i busted out the stash and started working!


Little by little i'm getting them done, a few more blocks to go and a bit of embroidery work on these cuties,


and i'll be all caught up! Now if i could just get caught up on my FAL list!

Oh well, there's always next quarter!
High fives for a new bedroom! (i'll post some pics once i finish up some more projects for it!)

  2. An AMH bedroom?! Swoon!! That pillow is amazing. I can't wait to see the pieces you make! (Are you thinking at all of makingpillow shams? I feel like I never see anyone do them but I still like to use them.) I am still soooo Penny Sampler behind! Your blocks look amazing thanks for the motivation :)

  5. Wow!! The black looks totally amazing as a background for AMH!! Yes! That girl who wrote the Dreden star tute is hilarious; I am lucky to know her :). I think that. Bedroom redo definitely counts as a 3rd quarter success! I love, love, love the colorsin your Penny Sampler too!

  10. What a gorgeous star dresden pillow! The dark dark background with the bright colours is really stunning. And remember, you don't HAVE to finish anything by any particular time! It's good to have goals, but don't let them bog you down. One thing at a time, and if you're not enjoying what you're working on, move to a different one of them. Don't forget to have fun!

  14. such a cute pillow, and penny sampler blocks. isn't that always how redecorating comes about? one thing leads to another! And I must say that this pillow was certainly an inspiring piece to kick off the redo!

  18. I love your pillow and I love the story. I once bought a new sofa, and it led to a redo of the entire main floor of my house. I so get how that happens.
