The 100 days are over already. Can I cross everything off my list? Of course not! But of course, I did disgress from my list too... So here is a recap of the last 3 months against my list.

23. Blocks for 4x5 Modern Mini Bee - all done but mine which needs to be redone!

24. Travel bag - not started

25. Bee Weave blocks for swap and for myself - 2 out of 8 done

I have made progress or finished 14 of 25 listed above, not bad when our house has been a mess and my sewing room has been packed away with all the building work going on. Plus I know I am never really realistic in my expectations. And I have of course worked on some other side projects.... But I am glad I have achieved quite a bit of my 100 day hustle list. This was a great challenge to keep me on track. Thanks Kelly for organising it. I am linking to Kelly's blog for the finale!



  1. Wow! You really knocked the socks off this Hustle! Love the Mug Rug!

  2. Fabulous! You sure had a lot to do, and got a lot done!

  3. Wow that was quite a list, and you really got a lot done, too. The tree mug rug is very sweet.

  4. they're all so pretty, but that little leaf key fob is going on my list of quickie christmas gifts to make for 2013!

  5. Such a great list and a lot of progress made. I love your Bee Weave blocks and your birdie ornament is too cute.
