Oh my, my, my…
I don’t have a lot of progress to show on any projects right now because I succumbed to a mean little germ late last week, which forced me to spend a couple days laying down, which then made my back go all wonky. (Such a waste of a weekend!)
I came back to my craft room today for the first time in many days, only to feel overwhelmed by the plethora of different projects I have going on all over the place.
Intrigued, I decided to go through the entire house and round up all the works-in-progress that I have strewn about, and consolidate them into one pile so I could wrap my head around what needed to be done.
Alright, in no particular order, the molehill of WIP’s include:
- The “Blue Daffodil” quilt, started in 2006.
- The Matroyshka dress, started in 2013.
- The Cowboy baby quilt, started in 2008.
- The Pastel Flower baby quilt, started in 2008.
- Green & Pink Hexie bag, started in 2014.
- Free-motion quilting quilt-as-you-go sampler quilt, started in 2014.
- Storybook Hexagon baby quilt, started in 2014.
- Batik Hexagon quilt, started in 2014.
- Aspen Frost mini quilt, started in 2014.
- Patriotic ruffle skirt, started in 2012. (Not pictured)
- Dragonfly Stripe Shawl, started in October 2013.
- Pink vest for my son, started in August 2013.
- Purple Echo Flower Shawl, started in March 2012.
- Purple Fingerless Mitts for my best friend, started in August 2012.
- Gray Rock Island Shawl, started in October 2013.
- Crocheted Christmas Granny Square Afghan, started in November 2012.
- Peach Fair Isle Baby Cardigan, started in January 2010. (Not pictured)
- Faberge Shawl for a sister’s wedding day
- “Star Spangled” quilt for my third daughter.
- “Rocket Age” quilt for my son.
- Peacock Stole for my granny, which I promised to her four years ago.
- 2 Christmas quilts
- Baptism wall hanging for my 2nd daughter (And I should probably make one for my first daughter as well…never got around to that.)
- Church crayon bags for all four of my children. (I’d like to keep their regular backpacks set aside for school-related stuff, instead of switching out contents all the time.)
- Advika mittens for myself.
- Winter accessories for my first daughter, which were supposed to be done already.
- Sample Tweedy Pumpkin hat for pattern re-market in the autumn.
- Sample Harmony Wave Cowl(s) for pattern re-market in late autumn.
- Woodland Winter Mittens, as many as possible
- Socks for me. 🙂
- Aprons. There’s a serious shortage. Aprons in April…I like the alliteration of that. Easter?
- Matryoshka dress, but only if I shelve all my ideas of embroidering and lining it.
- Cowboy baby quilt, only needs binding cut and sewn on.
- Pastel Flower baby quilt, needs the edge quilted, binding cut and sewn on.
- Hexie bag, just needs the sides sewn together and zipper, etc.
- Patriotic ruffle skirt…maybe. I think I may have to start over, but it would probably take less than a week to make from beginning to end anyway.
- Pink Vest, attach pieces, add ribbing.
- Matryoshka Dress–spring/summer, daughter will outgrow it otherwise.
- Storybook Hexagon baby quilt–a gift for a friend, due this spring.
- Patriotic ruffle skirt–spring/summer, same daughter will outgrow it otherwise. (She hates to wear pants.)
- Pink Vest–making slightly large for my son, but it’d be good if he could wear it this winter as well.
- Purple Fingerless Mitts–these need to get done, it’s been too long. Best friend’s birthday’s in April, but otherwise they need to be done by October.
- Gray Rock Island Shawl–a wedding shawl with a weird back story, I’d like it to be done by October.
- Faberge Wedding Shawl–wedding’s this summer, I’d like it done by June to avoid last-minute stress.
- “Star Spangled” quilt–I’m re-doing the “Little Kids” bedroom this summer, so by August.
- “Rocket Age” quilt–ditto.
- Peacock Stole–this could win ribbons at the County Fair, so by July if I’m interested in that. Otherwise, it’d make a great birthday or Christmas present for my granny, whose birthday is also in December. It’d have to be done by Thanksgiving for that.
- 2 Christmas quilts–I know should give up on this idea, but I really want Christmas quilts.
- Baptism wall hanging–her baptism will be over Labor Day weekend, so preferably done by August.
- Church crayon bags–wonderful Easter basket gifts, yes?
- Tweedy Pumpkin Hat–done by mid-August so I can do all necessary photography and re-marketing.
- Harmony Wave Cowl(s)–ditto.
How are your crafting goals coming along? I saw a bunch of posts about them at the beginning of the month, so now’s a good time to do a little assessment!
