Following along with a growing trend on craft blogs, I’m now going to be writing posts on alternate Wednesdays talking about my crafting Works In Progress.
(Pre-emptive apology for the photo quality today)
On the last WIP Wednesday, I started off by showing you my giant owl. Here’s where he is at the moment.
Still a long way to go. He’s gonna be so cute.
I’ve also been working on a dress for my baby niece for Christmas, but you can’t really see much of it at the moment:
Last time I also mentioned that I was still making patches. Definitely doing that. I’ve done loads. I have enough bright coloured patches for my rainbow quilt. I’ve laid them out:
With Smudge’s help…
And I’m in the process of sewing that up. I can’t wait to show you how it turns out. And I’m making good progress on my monochrome version too.
I’ve decided, because I’m insane, that I want to finish at least three of my current WIP blankets before new year. The rainbow one, the monochrome one and the Tunisian patch one I sewed up in April. I really do need to finish some. Especially since I’ve started a few more.
For someone who doesn’t like to be warm, I have a real thing for blankets at the moment. I have 8 quilts on the go at the moment. The rainbow one, the monochrome and the Tunisian one. Also the epic mini squares one I sewed up in April, a rainbow star quilt, a green ripple blanket for a premie…
…one made of sock yarn! Which is a little insane and might well take several years, but will look fantastic when it’s done…
…and the Scrappy Scrap Lap Quilt which is another long-term piece I’m adding all my leftover bits of yarn to.
If we’re being technical about it there are actually 10 blankets on the go. I started a massive granny square in blue several years ago for my best friend, which I called the Blue Beast. I didn’t get very far into it before I moved and it’s remained in storage, so that one is in stasis for now. And then I’m also semi-collecting knitted dishcloths with images to make into a quilt one day too.
Yeah, I like making blankets.
