Back in April, I shared a To Craft list of all the ideas swirling in my head… now it’s been a couple months, so it’s time for an update!
Some things I tackled, others faded from my head when something new grabbed me… as usual! So I updated the original list with a couple new ideas that I’m currently working on, and even a teeny tiny finished project that I forgot to blog about. (If I never took a picture then it never really happened, right?! Right.)
On to the list!
Still on the list. I have the pattern and the supplies… I think I even have the fabric, floss, and buttons set aside somewhere… but I haven’t started yet. I started thinking that maybe I need to invest in a couple more Q-snaps so I can have a few projects going at once, but actually… no, that’s the last thing I need, ha! I should be trying to keep my works-in-progress to a minimum so they actually get finished! Eventually I will get to this, because biscornus are so cool (and fun to say!).
Another yes! Although it didn’t turn out quite how I expected… here’s the blog post explaining how I made the top and then decided I didn’t like it, so I sliced it up and made two baby quilts instead (one Rail Fence and one Chinese Coins). I kept one and gave one to my BFF when she got married.
Yes! Another wedding present for my BFF, in MSU colors since all of us share the same alma mater. (Here’s the blog post for more details)
Started! I pick this one up when I’m not working on the Once Upon a Time or Quilty Stitches samplers… so almost never. But I still plan to use the finished product in another mini quilt to add to my nautical mini collection.
- Hoop Art.
Nope. Maybe some day… But I realized I already have a ton of extra art hanging around, so I probably don’t need to add to the piles!
And now for a few new additions to the list!
I’ve been obsessed with flying geese lately, and after seeing this block through another blogger’s bee challenge, I decided to give it a whirl! Trying to decide now if I should add more blocks (I made enough for 4 more) or leave it at that with a big solid border for a baby quilt. So these blocks are sitting on the design wall while I ponder.
- Michael Miller fabric challenge
I recently joined the Music City Modern Quilt Guild, and they’re participating in the Michael Miller fabric challenge, so I got a little pack of fat-eighths to play with. I want to try to use what I have, so I’ll probably make a mini quilt of some sort. Here’s a couple pics of what I started working on:
- Craft Room
This falls under crafts, right?? I have lots of thoughts but I don’t quite know where to start. It’s not a huge space, but it’s so nice to have a little room that’s not smack in the middle of the living room to house all my crafty stuff. I definitely want to make a bigger and better design wall, find a better organization system for my craft stuff and the closet in general, and put up some kind of art. I’m thinking I might bring the bakers twine clothesline back, but maybe hang my mini quilt collection instead of photos. And for over the sewing table, I found this cute Coke crate at a local antique store and I think it’ll be great for thread storage.
Definitely a work in progress!
And that’s all for this update! Does anybody else have too many ideas and too little time?
