The worst part of the wedding quilt, was that it forced crafty-monogamy. I trucked through that quilt and surprised myself with how well it went. This caused an extreme boost in confidence, then an extreme need to work on new and exciting things. Unfortunately I had weeks left of piecing, quilting, and binding.
Now I have a list and stash of project fabrics that I need to get through. Big enough that I need it written down.

Things to Complete In the Near Future
- Social Tote for Mom's Birthday (it's this Sunday!)
- 3 Box Bags and 3 Origami Bags, from Amy Butler's Style Stitches, for Dad's Birthday (it's this Saturday!)
- Make Christmas tree canvases. One is for Sarah's Birthday
- Start my Tula Pink City Sampler Sew Along. I have the whole Acacia fat quarter bundle to get me started. Yay for Raccoon fabric!
- Take a long arm class at my local shop. I got my mom a cooking class for mother's day, but she asked to do this with me instead. I'm super excited.
