In the Queue Wednesday

Many people celebrate the ending of one year and beginning of another with some kind of review and/or planning process. Lots of sewing bloggers, for example, review and summarize their sewing accomplishments of the past year - while others set sewing goals for the coming year.

I'm not big into these activities (Freud could probably have a field day trying to figure out why!), but I did decide that I have too many un-started projects stockpiled in my sewing room and I'm going to make a serious effort to inventory and complete them.

So, for starters, Hawaiian shirts for my husband.

I have been known, on occasion, to lure my husband into a fabric store on the promise that, if he found a fabric that he liked, I would make him a Hawaiian shirt.

And I DO make him Hawaiian shirts. Sometimes.

Possibly not quite as often as I use this ploy to lure him into fabric stores, however...

So, to start off this process, I present to you, the FOUR fabrics that are still sitting in my sewing room, just waiting to be turned into Hawaiian shirts:

Up first, we have petroglyphs and palm trees in blues.

Followed by abstracts and atlases in browns.

DH, I promise you, I WILL make you these Hawaiian shirts. They are in the queue...

my queue is filled with fabric for curtains for my daughter. I can't find the measurements I took, so I'm waiting on her to send them to me. They will get done.

LOL! Now that you've put it out there we will keep you honest :)

I've started a queue, and I linked back to you on my queue page... a tab on my blog. My goal for the year is 3 things sewn every month. We can do it!
How's the laptop case coming?

Those fabrics would also make great boxers for your husband.... and they only take 1 1/2 hours, start to finish!
