Make-A-List Monday: Fun Week!

Off-Track Jennie. That's my new name. I make a plan, do part of it, and then the ADD kicks in and I'm like, "Look! A chicken!"
  • Layout and sew Strawberry Fields Shortcake flimsy (the blocks were all done, so why haven't I finished this quilt yet?)
 Stayed on track for this one. I've just got to piece the back and quilt the thing. Easier said than done, but here's hoping so I can get it to my cousin for her birthday.
  • Layout and sew Backyard Bugs flimsy (just squares, so easy peasy) - didn't even get to this
  • Get pearl cotton for pillow sham quilting - nope
  • Sew Scrumptious pillowcases - I'm trying to decide if I should embellish these a little with lace or ric rac, or just keep them plain.
And now, for this week. Browsing through posts this weekend inspired me to start some entirely new projects. Shocker, I know. But I really want to make an Idaho wall hanging like Cristina's Texas one. And I've been watching Hell's Kitchen (seriously, my favorite show because Gordon Ramsay is so over the top in his insults and temper flare-ups), and he called someone a donkey again. And it makes me laugh every single time. So I'm determined to make myself a donkey wall hanging like the one on this blog. Just to go on my wall. What do you think - should I use up my London prints for it, or do it in my favorite color combination of yellow and aqua with a grey donkey? Can't decide!

The official list (besides my dream projects):
  • Finish these Blossom quilt blocks:
  • Sew together Happy-Go_Lucky Basketcase quilt top
  • Start Flower Sugar Economy blocks, just because I can
  • Make some quilt backs
  • Maybe finish my Ruby flimsy, if all goes well
That's all. We've got a wedding to attend on Saturday morning, plus the reception Saturday evening, so most everything will be done this week.

  1. I just LOVE that Strawberry Fields Quilt. I still have a Layer Cake so you're inspiring me to use it soon:) And by soon I mean 2016:) Because who has time to start anything. Ugh!! Btw, just because I'm dumb, what do you mean by "flimsy"? And I absolutely, hands down, LOVE Hell's Kitchen. I was so upset because, strangely enough, they don't show it in England, and in America I could watch it all the time! So I have to watch what I can on Netflix (lame).
