17 for 2017...

I decided to join in with the 17 for 2017 this year. It is a nice challenge where you pick 17 projects of any kind and try to move them along a bit. If you get a finish, great but this is mainly to just revisit some projects and move them along. I think the math comes out to working on one thing for about 21 days - or 3 weeks. I've noticed my attention span has dwindled over the years (nothing to do with all the blog hopping on the internet, nope not me!) and I tend to have to 'be in the mood' to work on something.

I think I have picked my 17 projects... but hey, they may change over the course of the year. I have added a new tab at the top of the blog for my easy reference.... that is not the order they will be worked however... remember that 'mood' thing? It should be fun with a linkup each month to report our progress. Anyone else planning to join in?

Here goes
1.) Crochet Mystery from Yarnspirations
2.) 1857 Applique Sampler
3.) Cat blocks - need mice made for the border
4.) midget applique - needs an applique border
5.) Snowflake quilt - need 3 pp snowflakes to finish the top.
6.) 2015 RSC Challenge quilt
7.) Churn dash blocks
8.) Hexagons (flower garden and spring one)
9.) Scrapbook quilt top
10.) Century quilt top
11.) Birds in the Air
12.) Counted Cross Stitch
13.) Grandmothers Choice
14.) VQF quilt blocks - have finishing kit
15.) Civil war blocks
16.) Midget Blocks
17.) green and brown blocks.

You can find the linkup here.



Good list--may 2017 be the year all of these are finished--(hey--one can hope!!)
Saturday is my day to dig out all my ufo's and list them--then decide where I am going with them--have to see how many I have first--then we plan!!
Do plan to hand quilt a small Christmas quilt New years eve and day--we will see if that plan works out???
love and laughter, di

It's going to be rather enjoyable watching you work through this list of terrific projects. Now, I just need to finish the three quilts on my list before I start anything else!

Planning to join in, got my projects picked, looking forward to the linky parties to see what everyone has accomplished.

Oh what a neat idea--it looks like --from your listing-- that a lot of your projects are "almost" done--I have a bunch hanging in my "closet of shame" ;))) between knitting, quilting and embroideries...hmmmm sounds like a really good party hugs, Julierose

Great list - I am looking forward to following along as you progress. Who knows....there just may be lots of finishes for you this year.

It will be fun to follow your progress on your list of 17. I think this will be a good motivational tool! Or at least, I'm hoping so.
