Linking up to the halfway point linky party at Kelsey Sews. How are you doing with your hustle?


  1. Good girl :-). And which one is for me???

  2. Love the pinwheels and the tote. So darling.

  3. I love the tote !! And the cowl and the feathers. Oh how I love those feathers !!

    I'm doing pretty well too. We have all the reasons to be proud of ourselves :)

  4. Wow, well done - you should definitely be proud of yourself:-)

  5. Well done.. All looking great. I had to review mine too. will update about it soon. I love that pinwheel quilt..adorable!

  6. That is one impressive list! Hope you get it done. The accomplishments so far are gorgeous, though I had to laugh about the table runner becoming yours as it is so beautiful.

  7. Great job on getting half on your list done! Gorgeous makes all around, Marit.

  8. What great projects! I love the way you quilted the vintage holiday quilt and that mouthy stitches swap tote is incredible! Way to get over the 50% mark. Good luck with the next 50 days.

  9. Such great projects and progress! I love your vintage holiday quilt!

  10. You're doing great on list. You've got a lot done. I've pretty much given up since I'm working on product for the Pop Up Shop. I might be able to get some things done after that though.
