Are you doing the hustle?

Marit at Sy, elsk, lev (Sew, Love, Live) clued me in to a great little "party" going on over at Kelsey Sews, called the 100 Day Hustle.  Basically, we try to finish up our to do list before the end of the year (now less than 100 days left).

Really the key to success is choosing a list that can actually be accomplished, right?  Not really my strong suit, but here it goes:
  • 12 Bee blocks for the 3 x 6 Bee - I am putting these on the list because they are high priority and have to be done by October 15th, which is within the 100 days.  I have already decided to take next quarter off, so I can work on the rest of my list.
  • I will also have 3 blocks for the Star of Africa bee that will need to be finished by the end of the year.  
  • At least one block for the Leafs Me Happy Blog Hop - my day is October 10th (like right around the corner!!!)
  • Pillowcases for my daughter's preschool - I committed to this months and months ago, and they finally got me the fabric a couple of weeks ago.  They are relaxed about the finish date, but it really should be by the end of the year.
  • Finish Totally Groovy - to be given as a gift for Christmas
  • Quilt the Batik Stripe quilt - this one is just for me.
  • small gifties for a few of my bee mates 
  • Another small gift for my daughters' teachers (2)
  • The Sashiko coasters from my Handstitched class - these too would make great gifts.
  • finish the Vintage Holiday QAL top
  • Finish Olivia's applique quilt - the blocks are done.
This list seems small (especially compared to the UFO Sunday one I made), but it includes 4 quilts to be quilted, and quilting takes me a while.  I will truly be lucky if I get those done.  I also know that there will undoubtedly be other things that will "pop" up between now and then.

Wish me luck!  Lord knows I am going to need it!
