3rd Quarter Goals 2015

1: {JULY GOAL} Make a quilt top out of these shirts
using this tutorial to donate to this charity. 
To be eligible for the FAL I have to have it all done and quilted, but my goal for July is just to get the top made. 

2: Irish Chain Quilt, quilt it.

3: Make yarn from these alpaca batts.

4: Prove that I have what it takes to be a part of the SMS Online Sewing Match.
I didn't prove it before this round but maybe in a couple years when they have another round, I can be ready.

5: Unicorn Sh*t yarn. Card these and spin them.

6: Hoop!

7: Hoop! 

Unofficial: MENDING PILE! It's bigger than this now. So is that kitten in the doorway.

Linking up!

Pillow Case Finish! Quarter Wrap Up.

My original goal post for the 2nd quarter had 7 official goals on it and 2 unofficial. Here is the last of what I have completed, and some of what I haven't completed and why.

#1: Irish Chain Quilt: No progress.

#3: Pillowcase: Completed!

I'm working on my photography skills. *shrug*

#6: Sock Monkeys: Made really good progress but no such luck getting all 60 finished. But I had good reason! I was having the kids help design the last 25 or so and then I found JO'S HAIR. That's right: someone had cut Jo's Hair with the scissors we were using for the monkey designing. Nobody owned up to it. I still have no clue who it was. They don't get to use scissors anymore. I'm still set on them helping me design so in the mean time, until they can be trusted with scissors again, I've been making dinosaur/dragon tails to sell at market. Children's strap-ons. *snigger* Aren't they cute? 

 And for my unofficial goals:
Mending pile, not much progress. I did a couple things but I don't think they outweighed what I added to it in that time frame. 

Unicorn Sh*t Alpaca batts: I finished cleaning the fiber for them but I didn't card them yet BUT I HAVE GOOD REASON HERE TOO! I was de-hairing this brown alpaca and carding it before I finished cleaning the white for the unicorn. I HAD to finish before I started carding the white so I could clean it between. I'm excited. I want to spin this brown stuff. So I really just replaced one goal with something else. I am still cool with this. 

Accomplished? I feel it. And that's what counts, right?
