Finish #3 of 9 for the Spring to Finish challenge. No pictures until it has arrived safely at its new home, but let me just say that for a mini, there was a lot of blood, sweat and tears involved!! Literally!

Spring to Finish: Finishes 1 & 2

This challenge really has been the kick in the butt I needed. I've nearly completed a third project, and that will put me at 1/3 through my list. Crazy!

I don't want to show everything, on the off-chance that my super-secret swap partner reads my blog. Said partner is a quilty/crafty idol, and I worked really hard, so I hope that s/he likes what I made!

I promise that once it has safely arrived at my partner's home, I'll share the full monty. :D

News bulletin:

Have you been over here lately?? Exciting news is to be had!!

Spring to Finish 2010, a to-do list

spring to finish big

Jacquie, bless her, is doing it again--I missed her Spring to Finish challenge last year, but I am SET this year! Six weeks (til the end of May) to finish up projects that have been hanging around and need to be cleared off!

So, the list:

1 & 2) The Urban Home swap projects

3) My mini for the STUD April swap.

4) A baby quilt for my co-worker, who is due this summer. (Has been started and scrapped twice. Hoping to stick with my new idea.)

5) Baby boy quilt (currently a stack of blocks) for my coming-soon etsy shop. (!!)

6) Baby girl quilt (basted) for said shop.

7) Simple Abundance quilt (currently the top is half-done)

8) The Madman's Man Cave Quilt (a stack of blocks waiting to be assembled).


9) The Madman's Xmas Stars quilt (which I started handpiecing a few years ago, and am nearly ready to sash the blocks and get moving forward).

Think I can get them all done?? Check back here throughout the next six weeks and see how I'm doing!!
