FAL 2016: where I write a list full of the intention of finishing them all within three months.....

Lets get straight to it shall we...

 1. Heart Cushion

 Have a top. Have a back. Have a zip. Been like this for almost a year.

2. Fishy Pincushion

A leftover from a swap I offered this up in a giveaway on instagram when I reached 400 followers. I did warn Ange that she could be in for a long wait for her winnings...

3. Scarf/Shawl Thingimegib

Mindless knitting in front of the TV at night. Think I'll just keep going until I come to the end of the ball.

4. Benji's Quilt

Need to finish his name and then I can call this finished.

5. Get Shirty Mark Three

As well as gifting three quilt tops on Christmas Day I gave my husband a bag full of cut up shirts and promised that they would be a finished quilt in time for his birthday at the end of March.

6. Siblings Together Home Sweet Home

Last year I promised Mary that I'd turn these donated blocks into a quilt for Siblings Together. I have the backing ready. I WILL get this done this quarter.

7. Siblings Together Double Heart Block

I was Bee Mama for Siblings Together Bee 2 last May and today was the first time I've laid all the blocks out together. Looking forward to this one.

8. La Passacaglia

Being the sheep that I am I had to have a go at this. But I knew when I started that I'd be a one cog wonder. I've actually finished this cog (I've used an old picture) but have NO idea what to do with it. Any suggestions what to do with a single 22" block?

So that's it! I'm pretty hopeful about numbers 1-4 as there's not much left to do until they're finished but the three whole quilts? We'll cross out fingers for those ones shall we? And as for the LaPas? I suppose it just depends on when(if) inspiration strikes.

Linking up with Cindy and the gang (have you seen how many bloggers are hosting it this year?) for the Finish-A-Long.

2016 FAL


  1. Looks like you have a productive few months ahead of you Catrin! I am rooting for you, get that cushion finished and the rest will follow :)

  2. Looking forward to watching your progress. I'm loving that cog but I can totally understand that you might not want to make more!

  3. So many gorgeous projects - which one are you tackling first? Good luck with your list and thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts!

  4. You are on a roll, you can do it! And well done finding shirt fabrics in such different colours, that is hard in itself!

  6. Could your La P cog become the front of a big floor cushion? Good luck with everything on your list!


Thanks for visiting. Please leave a comment as they really do brighten up my day. I'm pretty good at replying to comments but if one slips through the net I apologise - I'll try harder next time!
