Q2 FAL Success- 6 finishes

Well it's finally time to stand up and be counted with the FAL, and it's been a busy 3 months.  I had 16 items on my original list (see below), and managed to finish 6 of them, and make progress on a couple of others. I think it is pretty reasonable considering there is a small baby in the house (excuses, excuses), and it was my aim to get a minimum of 2 off the list per month, which I managed. 

So here are the details:
1. Christening Cushion for Amelia- DONE

2. Potholder- DONE

I love a bit of hand binding, all done and ready for it's kitchen debut. Pattern by @quietplay 
3.Crochet Blanket- fail
4. Hexy 2- quite a bit of progress
5. The Weekender- fail
6. Secret Squirrel- DONE
My 5 craft it forward gifts were finally completed, posted, and at least 2 of them have already been received (check out Duck Egg Threads on IG or Lias Handmade on Flickr- just trying not to completely ruin the surprise for my other recipients).
7. My Sampler Quilt - fail
8. Siblings Together Quilt- DONE

Ignore Jerry the Giraffe trying to photobomb hanging off the fridge!

9. Plus Quilt- fail, but progress made :o)
10. Stitch Tease House Quilt- fail
11. Simply Solids Quilt- fail

12. Star/Bright Sampler Blocks- fail
13. Improv Mini- DONE

14. Portholes blocks
15. EPP Star Embroidery- DONE

16. Hand Hoop- fail

Aside from these, I also completed 20 fabric party bags, 5 bee blocks, 2 peg bags, a New York Beauty Circle of Flying Geese block, and a hexy pushchair pouch, and no-one starved to death, drowned in a sea of dust, or ate cereals for tea (except me, but it doesn't count when i'm flying solo!!), so counts as success right?!?!

Now off to start compiling next quarters list...

  1. Teachers pet!!
    You did brilliantly, I got 1 thing done, but at least there is no surprises as what will be on my Q3 list!

  2. You have been so productive!! Didn't you have a baby this year too?! Very impressive x

  3. Absolutely astounded you did all that with Alex on hand, and still managed to prevent the drowning in a sea of dust disasters!

  4. I'd say that's a great success. Well done!!!

  5. yay, well done you. We succeeded in our mission to put Kerry to shame!

    1. Cheeky, I have a second one to post up today actually!

  6. All great finishes but the first two are really lovely. Well done

  7. I would say that is pretty darn good. I only finished 2 and happy with that.
