    Hello everyone,

    Tim posted a list of WIPS on another thread so I thought it might be fun to share mine! Also, might focus my mind on getting a few FINISHED so here goes!

    1. Lap quilt for my neighbour - in process of being hand quilted
    2. Bed quilt for me and DH - basted and hanging over bannisters waiting to be quilted
    3. Dear Jane blocks for quilt group project - 4 done, 2 not started :oops:
    4. Quilted door curtain - bought fabric and designed pattern, waiting on new sewing machine because that's a BIG job!
    5. Granny's Flower Garden queen size - being EPPd about 1/4 done
    6. Dutch chintz EPP stars wall hanging - half pieced, unsewn once and just restarted :?
    7. March's mini quilt (one a month on my calender) - just needs binding - do it TODAY, it's April already and have to start the next one!
    8. Matching cushions for our bed - middle heart block appliquéd, borders to piece - will do that TODAY!
    9. Crazy Quilt - two blocks done, don't know how many I'm going to do - ongoing project!
    10. Silk quilt - fat quarters and border fabric bought in Holland, just got some black silk and hemp fabric at the weekend from Easter Market - still trying to come up with a pattern!
    11. Kaleidoscope quilt - got 5 yards of pansy fabric, book and triangle ruler, waiting for DH to make design wall then will start that one, CAN'T WAIT!
    12. Chicken quilt - collecting fabrics and patterns - MUST START before Terri :lol:
    13. Dutch blue and white quilt - got fabrics, can't decide on pattern!

    OK so some of them aren't really WIPS, still in the planning stage but they're already projects, right?! :D Unlucky 13 - quick - think of another one! :lol:

    k3n, I think you definately have enough to keep you busy!!! But enjoy scratching them off your list one by one and adding three in between each scratch. That's what everyone does right??

    Absolutely! In fact when I went up to take pics, I found number 14 - a stars and baskets quilt about 7' square - collecting fabrics at the mo but will get on to it one day - planning to hand piece. :shock: :D

    Stars and baskets - just need to get some cream fabrics then I'll get started!

    Loved seeing your WIPs. Great job on all of them. I don't have pictures yet of my WIPs, but I'll tell you about them.

    1- oversized king Triple Irish Chain- started about a year ago, blocks are done, quilting is as you go, have 25 blocks to baste

    2- snow ball quilt- top is finished, just need to sandwich and quilt. I thought I had actually finished this about 5 years ago.LOL

    3- watercolor log cabin-started about 2 1/2 years ago. Got delayed because of packing up the house so we could sell.

    4- Asian type quilt with kimonos, fans, lanterns, etc., paper pieced, started about 3 weeks ago, have 2 blocks done. This will be for a very dear Japanese friend.

    I have 6 more planned, with the fabric, but will have to finish these before I can start them, since I no longer have a huge (500 sq. ft) sewing room.
    Will try to post pictures later today.

    Look forward to that pocoellie - I especially like the sound of the Japanese one! The problem with seeing other people's WIPs is it's a dangerous way of creating more of my own - everything I see and like, I want to make myself! LOL

    That's what I do...I see someone make something and add it to my list.

    A girl on a pebble? Wonder who that could be? lol

    you do such beautiful work :!: I really love love love the Dutch chintz stars :D :D
    Personally I like having several WIP's going on, when you get tired of one or need to step back for a while you have something else you can work on.
    I wish you fun marking off each one of your WIP's

    Mpeters, started a thread, back in Feb? or early March, called, "what's next?...and a corresponding one on picutes, called: "What's next in Pictures?", that I have been posting on for at least two months. When she mentioned it, I thought it was a great way, for me to list my WIP'S and keep going back to keep up with progress. It has helped me stay on track, a lot, and is very encouraging. Just thought I would let you know if you are interested. :D

    I made a list on New Year's Day- 22 items, in order of importance. 2 per month, easy, or so I thought. These are WIPs, gifts for throughout the year and prizes for raffles and showers. An item on the list may mean multiple items- such as 6 tote bags for the bride & attendants.

    I have 2 marked off (OK jan. done) and 2 in process. Wrote in 2 more on the side, back up to 22. Shoved in 2 surprise baby quilts for gifts (people asked and they were easy, but I wasn't going to these showers- made money for stash :) ).

    Today I will mark off 2 more "promises" and keep plugging away at the shower prizes. I'm making 7 items- 2 grocery bags, 2 table runners, 2 trivets, 2 potholders and coaster sets and 1 casserole carrier. Hoping to have these items done 1 one week. I have 1 runner top done and I really like- why do I have a hard time parting with stuff? I love it all!!! I exempted myself from the games since I'm the Mom of the bride.

    When I go home, I'll get the list off the wall and post it. Maybe seeing it in black & white will get my butt in gear to get another one done. (I keep in the back of my mind what I learned here- it's OK to give a wedding gift 1 year later)

    There is absolutely NO WAY I am going to post all my UFO's. I was sitting in a meeting one day for my local guild and one of the gals pops off with "I have 34 UFOs." *Huh,* I thought to myself. *I bet I have that many.* As if it were a competition or something. :roll: So I went home and grabbd a 5x7" index card and began listing all the UFOs I could find or think of. An hour passed and I had filled up the entire front of the post card and most of the back. Uh oh, this doesn't look good. A little while later I had run out of room on the index card, which now holds 76 UFOs. Yes, you read the number correctly. What is worse, hubby later brought me a few more boxes from storage (we've moved a lot in the past 10 years) and I found another dozen or more. Ack! So I have been working on finishing up a few of them. I set a rule for myself, I finish 3 UFOs before I allow myself to start on something new. :lol:

    k3n, since you were brave and bold enough :lol: to expose your WIP list, I will ask you a very "personal" question. How many hours per day do you actually work on your quilting projects? -- planning, cutting, sewing, pressing. Do you ever sleep? :lol: You've got some very nice fabrics there and some great work.

    QNC - :oops: I did know about mpeters' thread, I think I've even posted there myself - shouldv'e posted over there instead of starting a new one! Sorry - I sometimes leap before I look!

    Tiffany wow 76! What a great achievement to have started so many projects, you should be proud of yourself (no, I'm not being sarcastic - I really mean it :D )

    Gail - my DH works away 2 or 3 days a week and my kids are at school 4 days from 8.40am til 4.40pm so I fit in around them all! When Hans is away, I sew all evening. Even when he's here, I sit with him on the couch and hand sew - he likes TV, I'm not keen so this way we're both happy! Also depends on the weather - at this time of year, if it's fine, I garden; Today it's raining so I'm sewing! :D I'm lucky that unlike some ladies, I don't have a day job!

    K x

    PS Also, I'm not the world's best housewife! As long as the kitchen and bathroom are clean and everyone has good food and clean clothes - I figure my job is done! :D

    K, You're my kind of gal. I'm not much on housework either (Even though I have a degree in Home Economics -- Isn't that a riot?!! :lol: ) But I think I got more sewing done when I worked because I had to plan the time. There were times that I sewed all night on costumes, prom dresses, new holiday outfits, etc. Now that I'm retired (it's not a new thing...I've been retired since '98 :lol: ), I just go with the flow. When the phone rings and someone on the other end of the line asks, "What are you doing?" I ask, "Why?" So often I drop what I'm doing and do other things. I can't sew at night like I used to... the eyes, you know. I need a better lighting system around my machine. In a nutshell, I need to get better organized. I keep buying more fabric and sewing less. Hmm, there's a lesson in there somewhere. Right???? OK, now that I've aired my dirty laundry.................... :lol:

    I only have a few in progress and that is because I dont like them.
    Most of my projects get finished because I cant wait to see how they look done.
    I also keep buying more fabric and sew less. Cant pass up a sale.

    I feel guilty sometimes when people ask what are you doing and I have to say sewing - why is that, We're doing something constructive, right?! :D

    I had a friend who once said, "Even if I never use it, it's such a bargain." teeheehee

    Yes, I don't know why I feel guilty when I say I'm sewing. To non-sewers, that is probably a waste of time (like "What are you doing?" "Oh I'm watching TV.")

    I do very little just watching TV. I usually have it on and I "listen" to movies. Actually, my little TV is BEHIND me when I'm sewing. Sometimes I swivel around when I pin or hand stitch or un-sew (GRRHRR)

    76?!?

    Dude... you're my hero! lol

    I'm thinking to myself "no way in hell I'm listing mine, I'm too embarassed". But now, I might just do it. lol

    It would be a really good way to get organised and get a handle on what I have going.

    I'm envious of k3n not having to work, and GailG being retired. I have wonderful fantasys of how much sewing I would get done. Truth is, when I have a day off I tend to waddle around and not really achieve anything!

    I'm an interior painter, but generally work school hours. The afternoons after school are taken up with washing, kids sports, etc. And I sew in the evenings after dinner. Not every day though, sometimes it's nice to just sit and watch tv with my partner.

    I'm inspired now, going to go and make a list of my wips.
