I started out taking photos of every WIP, but quickly realised we'd be here for the rest of the actual week if I did. And also they're not that interesting what with being, you know, in progress. So let's just get stuck in with the list, shall we?
- The Single Girl/Boy quilt. Quilted! Oh yes. Finally. But not bound.
- The Farmers Wife quilt. As I said the other day, I'm giving myself downtime on this. Partly to decide on a colour scheme, but partly until I've been to the Festival of Quilts in August and decided when it's really the sampler I want to commit to right now.
- Elbow patches on my mother's cashmere sweater. I started to sew one on, I got scared, it's sat in my mending basket ever since. Should probably get it mended before I've had it a full 12 months, I suppose. However, I've just gone to look for it and it's disappeared. I suspect my mother has given up on me and taken it back, so maybe we can cross this one off?
- Mending the cuff on a stripy cashmere jumper of Teddy's. Well, Jasper's actually. I let Teddy wear it until he grew out of it, since I knew I wouldn't get round to mending it. My mission now is to mend it before Jasper grows into it.
- Silks dyed and waiting to be hemmed and turned into play silks. I know that Teddy would get a huge amount of use from these if I would just get on and hem them. But I keep looking here and here and basically anywhere here and think can I really be bothered when I could just buy them? Answers on a postcard.
- A charm quilt that's been in progress for over two years. That's ridiculous. I know exactly how I want to make this, I just need to actually do it.
- A Summersville quilt. For some reason, I haven't put a single photo of it in progress up on here, but if you follow me on Instagram (I'm Lifeinlists, unsurprisingly) you might have seen the odd peek. It's turned into a bit of a mix of english paper pieced, straightforward hand pieced and machine pieced, and it's coming together rather nicely, if a bit slowly.
- My Brit Bee block for Trudi. Again, you'll have seen this pop up on Instagram, but it is my first proper attempt at foundation paper piecing and it is going somewhat slowly. Especially because I ran out of backing fabric (thanks to some rather over-generous cutting while getting to grips with the foundation paper piecing) and had to beg Trudi for more. Hoping to get this finished by the weekend.
- My Brit Bee quilt, which I posted a very sneak peek of the other day. I'm in no rush on this one though.
- A blazer, still looking much the same (i.e. still only a muslin) as it did in early April.
- The Liberty quilt I posted the other day. I want to expand this, partly because I want my very own Liberty quilt, and partly to see how far I can make the charm packs go!
- A portholes quilt which I started after learning the technique at FQ Retreat a few weeks ago.
Right, I've lost my nerve. I'll start tackling those and worry about anything else that comes out of the woodwork after I've finished.
Ooh, it's actually made me all twitchy and anxious writing all of those down. That's a lot of time and money (in terms of fabric) sitting there not being useful or particularly beautiful. I'm off to get tackling.
Does your WIP list make you anxious, or do you like having 300 projects on the go at any one time?
