This quarter. Blimey I'm scared of this quarter. I'm 26 weeks now, and so this quarter will be the third trimester too. Already I cant bend over. I cant get up out of a chair or bed without making the most ridiculous noises. I'm gutted I dont have that lovely bowling ball baby bump - I've just blown out like a barrel! Anyway. Its a scary quarter for me, so I dont anticipate a great deal of finishes. I really should be sewing for beany anyway, and none of those projects are started so wont count in the finish along. Bummer.
I do have just as many wips as usual though, so just in case I turn into a manic sewing lady machine, here they are, starting with a few carried over from last time.
|brit bee round two to be a quilt as you go...|
|almost finished cushion!|
|solid charms, quilt or back? dunno yet.|
|needs hand quilting, not a hope of finishing!!!|
|Needs enlarging and extending so I can send off a decent size to a pro to quilt.|
|The cape Ann hexies, fair bit of work still to do here.|
|Powerpop Pluses, cut and ready to go. (thanks mum!)|
|my altered made in Amy star, cut and ready to go (again, ta mum!)|
|sizzix cut circles, got a few ideas for these...|
|Simply sampler blocks, only needs to be a 2x3 quilt top for me to be finished.|
|Sizzix cut monotone mega strip - need to do something nice with this!|
|The vintage stripes quilt, only 6 blocks to go and not all like this one.|
Looking at all these, the only things I HAVE to get done for this quarter are the Powerpop, the Made in Amy, the Cape Ann hexies, and the Simply Sampler quilt top. But I'd really like to get the texty circles done, and it would be a shame not to finish the vintage stripes (getting so close!) and the cushion cover.
However. There is a beany on the way to consider. (just in case you'd forgotten...) I'd like to make some more bibs. I have the fabric to make 3 blankies (just for snuggling round the house and car and pram etc, as apparently you're not advised to let a sleeping baby have a quilt. boo!). I'd like to make some drool neckerchiefs. I'd like to make a pair or two of bigbuttbabypants. I've got a bundle set aside for a superheroes quilt, and a bundle of Constellation for another beany quilt. I've got solids set aside to make a circular / octagonal playmat....
And lets not even get into the bundle I've been staring at for the last 2 months which was supposed to become my seminole pieceing / improv quilt. And the jelly roll that is waiting to become my negative space / modern art quilt top. Or the strips set aside to become ... well, I wont go into any more, its all rather ridiculous really. Prime example of my complete inability to concentrate on one thing for long enough.
Oh, but theres also the scrappy mini quilt I made years and years ago (yuck!) which I'd like to turn into a catnip filled Elliecat blankie. She's going to need extra comfort this winter.... Poor mite has no idea of the horrors coming her way!
Well, lets just hope I can sit upright for long enough!!!
