phew

In view of my meagre achievements last quarter, it's possibly a bit silly to create a longer list for this quarter, but here it is:

1. Euro siblings together quilt:


I actually only need to finish sewing the binding, bury lots and lots of threads and wash the quilt.

2. A quilt for my godfather:


I'm still deciding whether to go for the sketched pattern or rather make scrappy granny squares. To design something myself or to use an existing pattern I like very much - this is my constant dilemma.

3. A potential skirt disaster:


I need to add the zipper, stitch the facing to the waistband and hem the skirt. I foolishly made if from the pattern I like sewing but which is not too flattering on me, and I need to finish it quickly to see that I indeed look like a marsupial cat in it, and then wear it when I'm alone - it does have great pockets.

4. A denim skirt:


Made with two pairs of my old jeans. I still need to somehow insert the second pair in the middle. I'd love to have this ready for our big holiday in July, so I shouldn't postpone it any longer.

5. Gilbert's scarf (not that my brother-in-law is Gilbert):



I have maybe 3/8 of the scarf to go, but as I knit only on the train and not every day, it's still going to take some time. And since it's not needed until winter, my next knitting project might take preference.

6. Anne's sweater for me:


This is probably the most unrealistic goal from the list, as I've never knitted a sweater before, not to mention I'm a really slow knitter, but it would be so great to have it ready by the end of this quarter (Christmas or even New Year's Eve seems more likely though). 

7. In-fashion-again medallion quilt for my friend:


This still needs those design tweaks and choosing the rest of fabric not to mention all the cutting and sewing, so it will probably move to yet another quarter, but hopefully having it on the list will remind me to at least work on the design a bit.

8. Corduroy skirt:
This ugly disaster is here only so that I don't forget about it, but I'm not too hopeful I can make something wearable out of it this quarter.

And that's all, although I'm sure something will appear unexpectedly, like a certain swimming stars quilt I still need to show you, as it slipped in between the quarters.

Ok, let's link this up, before it's too late.

  3. I vote tree quilt first. Love that one the most, even if I really want to see everything else you are making too. The medallion is going to be fab. And the fabric pull for your godfather is luscious!
