WIP :: 01.25.12

Today I am low on pictures and projects!  I seem to be very busy lately and my crafting time has been limited.  It is all good.  I have put down the needle and thread and just hung out with my dear children a few nights.  Other nights they are in sports and all the other things that keep us busy in life.

I have made a resolution to only start new projects if they are necessary until I have checked off some from my current Work In Progress (WIP) list.  However, my version of necessary must be a little loose because I have added two new projects since making my resolution, ha.   In my previous editions of WIP Wednesday I have limited my lists, I am not sure why.  Today I am going to attempt to list everything that I have started and need to finish!

First up, FINISHES
I did complete a project, but only because I changed directions with it.  First I started with a scrappy square, then a week or two went by and it became a star, last week it made its final transformation and became a pillow.  I decided I should practice my free motion quilting, plus I had a small amount of purple minky dot that matched perfectly with my scrap fabric.  Perfect for the back of the pillow.  I love it.  It is on my daughter's bed right now, but I think it would look better on my bed.  We will have to figure it out.  I may attempt better pictures of it in my bedroom soon.


PROGRESS MADE
Plain Spoken Quilt - The final arrangement is made and I have all my rows sewn and 5 of them together.

Farmer's Wife - I have a couple more blocks done.  I will share later this week.

Nearly Hexagon Charm Quilt - I have about 750 hexies done.  I am in a swap right now and I need the fabric in order to continue.  I think when it is all said and done I may be 100 fabrics short.  I will have to figure this out!

NO PROGRESS
Flurry Wall Quilt
Terrain Wall Hanging - I have been working on the plans for this one in my head.  I have a habit of starting projects without having the full picture in my head.  I find it exciting as it comes together.

NEW AND/OR PREVIOUSLY STARTED PROJECTS - in no particular order
Master Bedroom Curtains - I have curtains that I almost like, I need to rework them.
Slipcover For Playroom Couch - I started, but have not finished.  I really need to do this.
Rag Quilt - I started this November 2010.  I am over 1/2 way done.
Wedding Gift - This will be matching pillows.
Special Occasion Gift
Knit Hat - should be interesting as I am a complete beginner.
Crochet Hanging Basket - This is started, but is coming out way smaller than I thought...
Other necessary items that my family needs.

I am linking up with Freshly Pieced.  Follow the link to find other great projects and inspirations.
