April is the month of getting stuff done because life's too short!

Well I always want to get stuff done but for the first time this year I'm really feeling good and wanting to make some dents in my 'To Sew' list. It's way too long and I've only crossed off one completed quilt!

completed

- Wing It to Hexagon Park


- I've made a block for Bee Blessed to answer Judith's call for Wonky Houses to go with the Pippi blocks :)


This is the first wonky house I've made and it has the most ridiculous chimney but oh well!! It has a cute cat floating (doh!) in the window...


and it has lovely grass!! Which was part of my great fabric win from a giveaway by M-R at Quilt Matters. I seriously love this chick! I must plot a way to get to Canada and visit her :)


Thank you so much my dear, they are so soft and the colours are brilliant. And how did you know I'd need some grass?! (customs people - honestly I'm just talking about the fabric!!)

ongoing

- I've made some progress with the Stained QAL, but still have my 3 and 4 blocks to make - here's a couple more blocks


I'm making the Stained for my guy friend, at first I was worried it was too floraly (yes that's a word now) but the more I put together the more masculine it seems to feel - I think the Charcoal sashing was a good choice. I'm really loving it :)

- Rose Star, 2 more blocks made (thanks to sunshine and a train ride to London to deliver the baby quilt!)




no progress:

I made the Pezzy top but haven't quilted it, I've finally got a bit of wadding (Frankensteined together from leftovers) so I'm basting it tonight and hoping to finish it up soon!


After that it's on to cushion making and more embroidery!!

Stats:

completed: 2
new projects: 0
in progress: 4

  5. Quilter's seem to have two lists. One is Projects to complete and the one is Projects we want to do. I have so many want to do's and the to complete are getting done slowly. Hexagon park is one that is on my want to do. Your guy quilt I like it. I just bought some of that fabric with the grey and yellow dots I love that fabric. That quilt will be so nice when all done.

  6. I think a lot of us caved and bought more space on flickr....

  7. As far as flickr are concerned, I am not buying it at the moment. Your images aren't lost, they are just in the drawer at the bottom at the back, so you would have to take everything else oput to look at them!
    Anything on a group is left there, even if you cannot see it on your site. If you choose to pay up later, you will then see them again. So, for the present, I am leaving it so.
    You may choose to buy. that would be ok too, as it isn't exactly an arm and a leg,- too much choice!

    Love your stained!

  13. Lovely work! And I totally adore that cat in the window, my cat spends half her life sitting at the window watching the world go by. What do cats think about all day I wonder?

  17. Loving the Stained with that yellow Lark in there! I try to 'weed' out old photos from flickr, especially stuff received in swaps made by others! Probably should upgrade to Pro.

  19. Your wonky little house is awesome and so is the "floating" cat! Love it. And your stained blocks are looking fabulous. Great work Lucy!

  20. Just upgrade to flickr pro, it's $25ish a year. I keep ALL my photos stored there -you can keep private photos private- because pictures take up so much room on computer hard drives and honestly, I'm not one to store them on disks or sticks or anything like that.

  21. Oh love how your stained quilt is looking, and your rose stars too. I caved and upgraded my Flickr, but I'm thinking I might just go pro...

  22. Frankensteined: Loving it! Beatles: Still loving it! Flickr storage issues? This is a new one on me. I'll be looking into this. Thanks for the heads up.

  26. Wow, you've been busy! I love your hexagon quilt :-)

  29. I love the wonky houses and the swoon blocks are beautiful. The pezzy quilt inspired me to purchase some to make something. I have an idea for a game, and want to know what you think? It might be fun! www.intheboondocks.blogspot.com
