|Collapsible thread catcher with laminated bicycle fabric|
|Quilt a long at Miss Rosie's last week - in which we stitch , drink tea and eat cookies!|
- Gypsy Wife Quilt - all blocks done - just requires the sections put together.
- Christmas Stars Quilt - not sure what's happening with this quilt - I usually pull it out every Christmas and work on it during a Harry Potter or Hobbit Marathon - ahhh tradition!
- Hometown Picnic Quilt - Oh - SO - CLOSE!
- My Small World Wallhanging (Started cutting all the little squares - but suddenly got distracted by the next quilt on the list)
- Circle Game Quilt - offered as a class at my LQS - only 2/16 blocks done so far - me bad!
- Autumn Quilt as You Go Table Runner - loved making this with a gay improv abandon - but when I hit the "sashing instructions" I went blank. (Note to self: You must learn how to do sashing. Going blank is not an acceptable oft repeated excuse).
- Christmas Gold Table Runner - no excuses here - I want this done by Christmas.
- Matryoshka Lemoyne Stars Lap Quilt - I loved making the stars - but my colour palette is a bit challenging - I think it would make a nice child's quilt.
- Improv Log Cabin Bedrock Quilt - I started this as way to try my hand at improv block making - lots of bright primary coloured blocks with dinosaurs in the middle - another child's quilt?
- Craftsy 2013 BOM Quilt - I learned alot of great techniques making these blocks. I didn't get all the blocks done - but there's enough there to move this towards a completed project.
- Chatter of Houses Quilt - Yoko Saito Quilt . This is being hand stitched and is a labour of love quilt so I don't mind having it in the "in process stage".
- Green Stitch Hexagon Quilt - this was my first attempt at hexagons (part of a "piece and love hexathon group" on Flickr - dated 2012.)
- Epic Passacaglia Quilt - This is another hand stitching project. I did get started but bogged down with all the fussy cutting. Plus I spent so much time on Instagram admiring other people's #passacagliaquilt progress I made little forward movement on my own. (warning: do not go down that rabbit hole!) Things have come to an abrupt halt and the endgame for this remains uncertain (a mini not so epic mug rug perhaps?).
- Christmas Bells Applique Wallhanging - just needs the backing / quilting and binding.
- Viking Socks Applique knitting bag - I started this to put my next project in...
- Viking Socks stranded knitting project - because I like to knit and wear hand knit socks.
- Audrey cardigan - this sweater is all done except for 4 rows on the last sleeve - now how pathetic is that! I had to quit when the temp hit plus thirty degrees Celsius and I just couldn't pick it up!
- Tour de Fleece handspun - this is my handspun fibre project for this year's 2015 Tour de Fleece group. I need to skein one bobbin and ply the remaining two bobbins.
I have the fabric and patterns for a few bags etc but since I haven't officially "cut into anything yet" I still have options. Soooo... here's the tally:
- 9 quilts (the #passacaglia quilt status is not yet confirmed)
- 2 table runners
- 2 Wallhangings
- 1 project bag (sewing)
- 2 knitting projects
- 1 handspun project
17 projects in all - anyone having a panic attack yet?
Having done a mental inventory and documented it I have surmised that things aren't as bad as I had thought. I like the projects I'm working on and it's good to reflect where I am on the "completion spectrum. It helps with prioritizing what I want to work on next.
