WIPs - this is your year babies!

A cool splash is needed for this hot beginning to 2012 here in Melbourne.
A new look always inspires me to do a little dabbling with the ol' bloggo.
I didn't get terribly far hehehe!

I also haven't got very far with my Medallion Quilt borders
I'm still on No. 3 - Applique.
Need twice as many hexies as I had made.....
though my first 'proper' bit of sewing done for maybe 2 months - striped border and white border left me with an aching back and hamstrings, but boy did I enjoy the hum of my machine...sigh... (sorry...I say proper sewing, as if handsewing the hexies together is not....you choose!)


WIP's for 2012 - no resolutions to be made here EXCEPT sew WIPs and sew from stash!
Thats all I'm saying, peeps, no more!


2011 - Year of the Unfinished:

A little fixing of some bad looking quilting and a binding and then + and x quilt is done!



My Liberty stamps - slowly but surely



I have had this collection of DS's Country Fair for sooooo long - they are destined to become a picnic rug and I pull them out everynow and then, but, then they go back in their little hidy hole and get forgotten


This lives on my stair railing unquilted and unfinished - 2012 is your year buddy!!!


DITTO!



This needs so much doing to it - it's not funny - bad joins, batting, backing, borders?


A Don't Look Now/Sewjourn Retreat project - looking pretty....but that's about it.


Wow - this one really does live under my table, hidden away from prying eyes, but no more it cries!
Please fix up the frightfully awful hand-quilting job done on me and get me sorted!!!


Just another piccie of my (once) baby - just a little tweak here and there is needed...


A newbie on the scene - Basket Case pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew - with my British Blues - gotta get you a photo of them - they really are stunning!


My photos Always have a loose thread!







Just a few pictures that I like - thought I would share.
Those little cockatiels are adorable and a childhood dream on a lid

Study is killing my sewing time at the moment - my back accident put me nearly a month behind schedule and I am a-slaving away to catch up...2 assignments done (but only with an extension and a pretty serious semi-melt down) and 2 to go....silent prayer that words get typed on page....

my eyes are hurting
Chinese takeaway is calling
my tummy is rumbling

That's some WIPs you've got going there. My list looks oddly similar... I'm loving your + and x quilt - beautiful! Happy new year to you!

You sure do have some beautiful WIPs going. How wonderful that you at least have bannisters to show them off. Mine sat in the stash for so long with no hope in sight that I gave them away to someone else to finish. All the best with the words. Cherrie

If you get fed up with your WIP's I'll take them off your hands they are all beautiful!

Some fabulous WIP's in there! Like me you might have to practice some "project monogamy" :)
