FAL Quarter 4 and other stuff.

Following on from last week's rant, I went on to make my Bee a Brit Stingy blocks for Erin - no problems, all good.

I prepped more part made Zippy Pouches for this week's classes, pics will follow later in the week I hope.
I got all the quilting done on the trad Christmas flannel quilt I am working on - just need to bind it. 
On Sunday I tidied my room!!
I was aware of a mounting feeling of mild panic and realised that eventually even I can't cope with the mess so whilst not perfect, I at least sorted all my Wips.
I got my own Bee blocks all quilted up, sorry, no pics yet, and bought some fabric on Monday to bind.
Amidst all this craziness, I popped into Bloglovin briefly today and was gobsmacked to find I had scooped the top prize in Leanne's FAL 3rd Quarter draw - I have only gone and won $75 to spend at the amazing Fat Quarter Shop - it really does prove that even one pathetic finish can lead to good things. Thank you Leanne, & thank you Fat Quarter Shop!!
Which brings me to FAL 4th Quarter. I had thought maybe to dip out for the last quarter but that would be plain rude. So I am bringing forward one of my 3rd quarter failures............

This is to be a Christmas cushion that I English Paper Pieced, it is part quilted and just needs a backing. Maybe I could actually finish this for Christmas?
And to the cushion I am adding in my Cathedral Windows project that I had forgotten about but unearthed on Sunday when I tidied my room!

and together with the amounts of Wips that I have, (and two new quilt projects that I haven't even mentioned yet!) I think two UFOs is as much as I can pledge this time, so I am linking to Leanne's FAL Quarter 4.
This will be Leanne's last quarter running the FAL, then we need to shape up in 2014 for Katy, quite close for comfort, Littlest Thistle is taking over..........quaking already!!
