WIP Wednesday: 3 on the go

LauraWIP3 Comments

      I had a lovely weekend with friends last week, down on the Dawesville Estuary south of Perth. Five of us camped out in a house overlooking the water and sewed and ate and drank champagne… And sewed and ate some more… I’ve been feeling rather blocked lately in the sewing space – too many other worries so … Read More

It’s nearly the end of the year! I’ve had visitors for the Christmas-New Year’s break which has made things quite chaotic around here… They’ve been mostly crashed out on the couch with the occasional rampage around the garden and daily trip to the park. I’ve also done a little sewing. This is a pre-Xmas project that hasn’t quite been finished. … Read More

WIP Monday….

I’ve been quiet for a while. And by quiet, I mean BUSY…  Busy playing with sharks and racehorse goannas – all in a day’s work at my new job at the School of Animal Biology, which is turning out to be everything I wanted and more. This is a racehorse goanna by the way – we have about 4. I’m … Read More

Mysteries and Hoops

So many things in progress, I don’t know whether I’m coming or going… Metro Hoops Amongst others, I’ve made some progress on my Metro Hoops Quilt. I’ve nearly completed the outlining and secondary hoop design on all the hoops. But of course I couldn’t wait to finish that before I started filling them in… I’m pretty happy with it. Lots … Read More

Dressing up

Summer is coming Down Under so it’s time to get those summer frocks out! I was at my local fabric store when I spotted a pool of white-n-black cotton sateen loveliness on the discount table reduced to $3/m, down from $12.99. Unheard of! I asked what was wrong and there were two TINY pink marks – on the back. So … Read More

What Cancer Cannot do…

When I saw this quilt on Jaybird Quilts, I had to have the panel from BlockpartyStudios. I ordered four. Unfortunately, like Julie, I know too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. As soon as it arrived, I had to have a play. Totally broke my “don’t start any more projects till you finish some” rule. The free … Read More

More Mondrian Madness

First WIP Wednesday of the year! I feel I should do a showcase of all the quilts I INTENDED to have finished in 2012. I seem to grind to a halt at quilting stage. But a) it was too hot to quilt and b) I was too hot to drag out all the WIPs and feel guilty over them. So … Read More

WIP travel puzzle…

Firstly, OOPS. Forgot to draw the Bloghop party winner of this: Random.org said: Which was Tanya. Congrats Tanya! I’ve been a little quiet this week,  but I’ve been playing with zippers. Love that sketchy fabric. 🙂 And I’ve been scheming.   There’s not much besides travel and sewing on my mind… But this is all I’m going to show you and … Read More

WIP Wednesday – some modern madness

Lauracraftsy, WIP0 Comments

I vowed not start any new projects, but then I started Elizabeth Hartman’s Craftsy class, watched the scattered squares tutorial, and somehow, this happened. Oops! I know JUST how to quilt it and it’s going to hang above my sewing desk. I think I’m pretty good with colour, but this class gave me a whole new way to look at … Read More
