My Blog List
A quilt I started a few months ago, at my husband's request.. he saw it in a book. I cut all of the triangles completely out of scraps. Nothing purchased for it, except for a couple of neutral FQ's for the background.
My design wall consisted of some batting tacked to my dining room wall. We had company staying and it got taken down and rolled up, and is waiting for me to get back to it and sew up the blocks.
The pouch from the Pouch-A-Long with Rebecca Lynne .. I have actually been stitching on this one in the evenings, sewing the frame to the pouch. But I can't decide whether to ditch it and start over. I'm not completely satisfied.
This one is actually calling out to me tonight. I really want to start stitching my hexie layout together so that I can applique it onto its background. I think it will be really unique when it is finished. I'm loving it.
I am starting to get the hand quilting bug again, also. It comes in waves. I am halfway done with this quilt, and I'm sure once I get going again, it won't take that long to finish. I originally blogged about it HERE.
And then there are these blocks which I've blogged about recently.
Oh boy.. I have my work cut out for me. Not to mention...
Finish carving a sewing space for myself out of our spare bedroom/office.
ACK! I'd better get going on some of these things. I feel like a great big slacker!!
You can do it! I have also had to link up to get some motivation to actually finish all the WIP's! Sometimes that's what it takes. That and meeting with my sewing group every Tuesday. A few hours of nothing but sewing and with no phone calls interrupting me constantly. You are doing great--looking forward to seeing some finished projects soon:)
I don't think there's anyone holding a gun to your head to be finished anything by a certain date, so just go with the flow, and make what you like, or you'll end up hating everything! Loving the look of those hexies though, so, selfishly, I'd say go with that ;o)
No need to make yourself feel bad about having a few WIPs. You have a very busy full life and sometimes other things take priority. All of your projects are wonderful and very worthy of completion. Maybe just tackle one at a time - start with the one that is inspiring you the most at the moment and I am pretty sure they will all make it to the completed list fairly quickly! Quilting is supposed to be fun and make you feel good - not burden you!!
I love that I am participating in the WIP each week. It does keep me motivated to keep on working.....I know I need things to take photos of each week!
Yes, looks like you have lots to do. I had a craft room until I let my daughter and her 5 children move in with us. I had to give it up for the 3 girls to have a bedroom. I love them all, but really wish they would find their own place...and soon!
Love what you're doing with your hexies--- I have a hexie-thing going too! It will be a multi-year project for me! I think your pouch looks cute. My condolences for the loss of your Aunt. My family and I will join in the prayers for your comfort. Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's nice to meet you
