Progress Report and Shop Update!

Well I promised I would be back in 2 weeks with a progress report on the unfinished projects from my last post.  In hind sight setting deadlines over the school holiday break is probably not the wisest idea ever as every time I wanted to get close to my sewing room there were two little girls cutting, sewing and crafting up a storm ALL OVER the floor in my Sewing room.  But I am more than happy that my projects were put aside for a growing love for textiles and sewing by my girls.  

My Jazzy Jungle quilt - I have finished hand sewing all the animal blocks and now I just have to put it all together.

There has been some progress on my Disappearing nine patch quilt.  All the blocks have been cut out and re sewn and I have several rows together now.  I am loving how this is starting to come together. 

There are so many different ways to do this design but I am glad that I chose plains to go with the striking red Kaffe fabrics.

There sadly has been no progress on the Robot Canvas or on the quilt for my daughter.  I have finished one more square on my crochet blanket.  But we had a fabulous holiday break.

At the recent Perth Upmarket my Bethanie Apron

 - not only the made Aprons but also the pattern was a huge success.  I have now listed the pattern in my Etsy shop so you too can make your very own.  And of course I would love to see any photos from anyone who has made one.

Two many unfinished projects

Look we all know I am a list person - I even have a rule about only 3 projects on the go at one time.  Some people thrive with lots of projects on the go at once - not me - I have somehow let my On-The-Go project list get longer than I can handle.  So this is my way of getting through them.  I am going to show you the state of them currently and then report back in 2 weeks with their progress. (I also like deadlines!)

Jazzy Jungle quilt for my new Godson

Candy Girl quilt for my daughters 9th Birthday (in 7 weeks)

Robot Stitchery - which itself is finished but needs to be turned into a Canvas for a different Godson.

All my squares are now cut for my Kaffe 9 Patch quilt - awaiting sewing!

Still crocheting Squares for my way too ambitious lap rug - only about 15 more to go!

And well to finish off - Here is a project I have finished.
Here is my Liberty Bliss Scarf

I look forward to NEXT winter when I will be able to wear it - I am really happy with how my first completed crochet project has turned out.  I especially love the Liberty Ceaser Tana lawn threaded through the crochet.
