I need to get some things finished. And I probably don't really need to add all that much to my stash... so maybe time for a stash diet. Sounds like I need to join Jess from The Elven Garden along with Rebecca from Making in their 2014 Stash Diet and WIP Windup. The theory is that if we spend a little bit less time buying new and exciting fabric**, we might be more tempted to finish up those projects we have already started or bought fabric for. You all know there are always plenty of those aye?
As a first step, we need to identify exactly what is on the WIP pile. Gulp. Are we ready for this? Loosely grouped into categories but in no particular order... a bit of a walk down memory lane...
Jelly roll Basket/Sampler
Two WIP's Turns into One Quilt
The Japanese ladies (fundraising project)
The Robots and Rockets (fundraising project)
Tillies Lane *
Seeing Squares *
Bluebirds and Berries... or is it Birds and Blueberries????
Flower Pots - Kim Mclean
Layer Cake Vase Quilt
Friends Mystery Quilt
Noel kit (not even opened yet!)
Can't even remember the name of this one, but I think there is just one block left to stitch
Modern Applique - hand quilting
Fabric Piles (desperately) waiting to be started:
Koi bundle from Fabricworm - There's a Square In There pattern
Double trouble Adornit FQ bundle from Fabricworm - star pattern from Elizabeth Hartmans book
Wrenly fabric bundle from The Country Yard - project undecided
Bird/floral/solid bundle - project undecided
Disclaimer: there is no guarantee that this is all the projects that exist in my sewing room and surrounding area.
* I admit to a few other projects that were started as plodders... and I plan to continue plodding as time and circumstances allow (such as the Single Girl and Flowering Vine quilts) although I have listed Tillies Lane and Seeing Squares... which are also plodders.
** While I do promise not to buy new and exciting fabrics - I am not promising to buy new and non-exciting fabrics. Solids or background fabrics essential to the construction of said projects may be purchased, without failing the fabric diet.
Do you have a problem??
