Enough for Now


So yes, they're very cute, but I think that my Hallowe'en diversion with Jacks and Cats is over for now. It is just over six weeks until the next Bonnie Hunter mystery, and before that

At least I finished up all 55 of the wonky nine patches I planned for Jacks and Cats...




...and that feels like a natural stopping point. They will be trimmed to different sizes depending on where they end up in the quilt. Next time I open the box, I will have to finalize my plan for the applique. Right now that still feels tricky, so it's back to the basement for this project!

Technicolor Turkey is going really well, and I'm feeling good about that. And about 20 months after I bought it, I've finally realized that I don't like the fabric I bought for my Allietare border. New fabric is on the way! So I'm hoping that will be an easy finish now too.

With the year end approaching, my list of 2017 finishes is feeling too short. I'll have to see what I can do about that!

  1. Yes. We all have lots to finish before year end. How does that happen?

  2. Ahh, so Hallowe'en 2017 is not to be the trigger for Jacks and Cats finish! I really do like those 4 blocks though. It doesn't seem like 20 months of Allietare. Intriguing!

    1. I know, time flies! This month I've been looking around asking myself "why isn't this finished yet?" I'm realizing that it's always because I haven't admitted that there's something I don't like about it. So, I'm recognizing and fixing! Hopefully it will be soon now. :D

  3. Monica, I'll be thinking positive thoughts for you to finish those projects that "must be done!" I sure can relate to the need to finish as you know what my list looks like! :) I'm still loving those Jacks and Cats blocks!

    1. Thanks, Terry! Your list of finishes is still longer than mine! Ideally, I should be able to add 3 more projects to the Finish page this year. Fingers crossed!

  4. It feels good to clear the list of a few projects. Others will just have to wait. Love your wonky nie patches. They'll be waiting after the new year.
