Sewing stuff I'm involved in

I am juggling so many projects these days... well always, but I decided to make a list of the current goings-on just for fun. Here are some of the sewing things in my life now and in the near future:

*Charity quilt project for KC Modern Quilt Guild:
last 2 charity quilt blocks... in process
My last 2 blocks, in process this morning. They are almost done now... I thought I was done but the last block came 1/2" shy of the size it needs to be so I need to sew another strip onto it.(due today)

*Secret quilt project that I'm going to try to have published--just needs quilting and binding! (due whenever I can get it done)
*Doll Quilt Swap 9 on flickr (must be mailed by Sept. 1)
*Two online quilting bees that require 2-4 quilt blocks from me each month (due at the end of each month)

*Custom etsy order:
custom etsy project...
This is the start of one of two king sized pillow shams... I love how it's coming together so far. (no deadline really but I don't want to drag it out for too long)
*I'm going to sew up something small for the church service auction (Sept. 1) (should I say? ok... I have been admiring Noodlehead's gathered clutch for a few months now, so I'm going to make one for one of my lucky church friends.) I just need to figure out where to fit it in with my other deadline projects.
*And I signed up to make another Downy quilt as part of our next church service project. (I don't have the kit yet so no deadline on this one for now.)
*Oh yeah! One more thing, I need to finish cutting squares to mail out to my Bee Beautiful friends as September is my month. I'd like to mail them sometime in the last few days of August.

As soon as I have time, and have finished the quilt I mentioned above, I'm going to finish up my 9-patch quilt! I really want to use white Kona crush fabric for the sashing and need to find a good source for it. I have sort of (mostly) decided that for a while I am not going to be buying fabrics for any new projects--I want to focus on finishing some of the many UFO projects I have laying around here. I am still trying to decide if I might need to make an exception for my birthday next month though.

Wow! You're a busy girl. That is just too much fun for one post (lol). JoAnn's has Kona Cottons for $5.99 and they frequently have 50% off coupons. Gotta love that!
