So a while back I said I had to finish two projects before I could start another. It was an attempt to whittle my WIP pile down a little (so it fitted on shelves at the least!).
Well, I finished my tree of life quilt (now called Life Encircling) and my Tui at Dawn quilt, both for entry into the Taupo Symposium so I can't show them here. So I did a little happy dance and started pulling fabric. I think mucking round with fabric combos is better than eating chocolate...
It's going to be a log cabin quilt for a very special someone. I don't think that someone reads my blog very often, and I'm extra sure they won't know what a barn raising setting, log cabin means so I think I'm safe showing a few snippets.
Meanwhile I tackled another project in my WIP pile. I think I've made the world's ugliest grocery tote! But it was sitting in my WIP pile and it was a quick project to finish up and hey, the vegetables and packets of pasta ain't gonna care what their bag looks like. (Sometimes I think I almost like the fabric combination, then other times I catch a glimpse and have to shield my eyes.)
Then I proceeded to break my own rule and started another four projects - that is, another four tote bags (seeing as they are all tote bags, can I pretend it's just one project?). I rationalised it because production line assembly is the fastest way to get stuff done and I'd already started one bag, right? Plus I need to make a couple of belated birthday pressies.
Ah well, I could keep trying to convince myself or I could go finish them up.....Happy Saturday!
