A wrangle of WIPS*

It dawned on me during the week that I had completely forgotten about one of the WIPs I have.  How does that happen?  Anyway, that made me think that it might be a good idea to put together a list of my immediate quilting priorities, so that I don't get even more distracted - and we all know I have the attention span of a gnat when it comes to fabric related activities.

So here goes.  These are things I would like to get done this week:

Do some more quilting on the Briar Rose simple baby quilt (the first in my series of 10 - you are welcome to start a sweepstake on how long that will take me).  I have basted this with the pink candlewick left over from Sweetie Pie and it feels snug as a bug.  The straight line quilting is done, but as hubby says "it needs some squiggly or wiggly stuff too".  And some binding, too.  Hence the red strawberry fabric.

Briar Rose charm pack quilt.  Time to FMQ.

I also need to get some of my ABC quilt done.  Oh, and get my photos on Flickr and other admin type stuff.  This has been going by the wayside with work.  When it comes to time to relax, I have been sewing rather than doing bloggy stuff.

Little blocks patiently waiting in their folder until they are all finished.

And now that I have culled some blocks from my EPP, I need to get the diamonds for four more blocks basted.

More liberty lawn, some Heather Ross, and a smudge of linen.

Finally, Princess has decided she would like a zipper purse for Christmas.  I have told her it is already made and hidden away for Christmas morning.  My nose is going to grow.  I need to get to it.  The other little purse in the photo is one I finished during the week.  That is a post for another day - but at least I have done something this week!

I definitely need to get me some more of those little dancers.  They are going into everything!

Linking up to Crazy Mom, TGIFF and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.  Howdy visitors!  

Have a lovely weekend everyone - what are you doing?

* Any other ideas as to the name for a collection of WIPS?  A writhe?  A wriggle?  A headache?

I'm too scared to write a list. I adore the briar rose quilt. Not sure what pattern to use for my FQ's of it. Beautiful fabrics in all those pics

I love that little bag with the sewing machine on it! That briar rose quilt is going to be so cute, can't wait to see how you quilt it!

I spy a familiar, fab fabric in your purse/pouch. See:
You have nice WIPs - they'll be lovely when done!

I laughed at your husband's comment that it needed some wiggly stuff. It sounds like something my husband would say! :)

That pouch looks so cute! I love polka dots, and that fabric looks awesome!

Sewing rather than blogging I don't know anyone that does that;) lol Sounds like me!

Your embroidery is gorgeous!

DeborahGun said...

sewing rather than blogging is great - I should be doing that rather than blog reading!

Liz, you did get the memo? There are only 7 days in a week! Good luck :)

Leonie said...

a bottomless pit? :) I'm sure you'll get to it all, all in good time :) I've been crocheting gifts and over the weekend sewed a set of 3 cushion covers... all stations go... when I can keep my eyes open and aren't overrun by "life stuff!" :) Have a great week :)

A wrangle is pretty good but I also like headache. :) some very nice projects. Get going on the wiggly stuff, then! It's so nice how the hubby notices and gets involved to a degree. My mr steers as clear as he can from my sewing except maybe to ask if I'm done yet. Good thing we have other common interests. :) I do have all the other admirers around here so his involvement isn't really necessary.
