Januarys To Do List

Ok I don't know about you but I have a heap of things that I need to do this month and some strict deadlines, I also have a massive wishlist of things that I'd like to achieve.

I'm listing them all here so I can keep on track (fingers crossed)

To Do:

Fashion Competition Dress - It's quite a complicated design and I have only just started. This needs to be posted on the 9th so that it is definitely received by the deadline of the 15th.

Bee Blocks:
3x6 Bee - Im doing a checkerboard block, you can read the tutorial for it here. I have done and posted 3 so far and have another 3 to go. These need to be posted by the 15th Jan

Sew Bee Joyful - This month the theme is Owls and we all have completely free reign, its going to be so much fun. This has to be posted by the end of the month

Piece Bee With You - The theme for the paper piecing bee is Mid-Century Design - think home wear, furniture, kitchens etc. I have drawn up a rough sketch but need to hone slightly. Also due to be posted by end of the month.

20 Superhero Costumes - Lawson turns 3 on the 20th and I'm holding him  a party with a surprise superhero theme (surprise for Lawson and for the guests). So instead of handing out party bags with crap in that parents don't want their children to have, I thought I'd make them all capes, masks and badges. I'm so excited about this although worried about getting it done in time! The party is on the 21st so this is my deadline!

Alice in Wonderland quilt for Emily - As i've mentioned before I need to make this quilt for my cousin and his wives long overdue wedding pressie. I got some lovely Alice fabric for Christmas and some wonderful Alice images that I'm going to use. There is no set date for this but I need to do it asap

Write a tutorial each week for my new linky party Tutorial Tuesday. I'm planning on Christmas Stockings for next Tuesday (I'm doing 1 Christmas thing a month so that next Christmas I actually have some lovely handmade things in the house!)

Lawson and Lotti

Wish List:

Start at least 1 of the 2 quilts I need to make for my sisters belated wedding pressies (anyone else see a theme here!)

So what do you think? Bets on whether I will achieve it all on time! What is on your January To Do List?

Congratulations on getting through to the next stage of the competition and good luck with your entry. (Think I know which magazine it is as I have the same deadline!)

Good luck with your list and deadlines! That party's going to be loads of fun!

What a great idea for a party - good luck with that and your other deadlines.

Great minds must think alike - I started a Tutorial Tuesday post this week, Though I am not writing tutorials - I am test-driving other people's! And your wonderful Union Jack is pencilled in for 2 weeks time, just before Australia Day. Looking forward to seeing more tutorials from you :)
