WIP report

Time to share some of my work in progress.

Yesterday, Faith came over to work on our homework.  Of course, we got sidetracked, so we went shopping instead!  One of our stops was to my favorite bead store- the one with the infamous bead box that you can dig through for hours.  I bought silver wire in various gauges, I hope to make a new project after I finish my final class homework, that it.

Faith had a birthday the other day and so I am making a freeform crochet scarf in these colors for her:

Then I have another friend’s birthday coming up, so I’m making her this one, too.  I would say these are my favorite colors at the moment:

Since this is a WIP post, I will show you my last 2 metal art projects to turn in next week- both are from silver:

silverleaf

And here is an asian motif from the kimono quilt I’m currently working on:

The next two pictures are not WIP, but thought I would show them nonetheless.  Check out this delightful mini quilt, it was in the bag from Barb.  I’m hoping that was intentional and I get to keep it- LOL!:

Last up, I bought these outside the store from a charity to support Project Linus, which is a worthy cause:

What are you working on???   Hugs, Carla

  1. I can’t wait to wear my scarf! ;-)

    It was nice to be sidetracked.. LOL… i was definitely not in the work mode.. he he.. thanks for the firewood.

  2. You’ve been busy! I’m fond of your color way of the moment as well. The bud vase is interesting…what was it in its previous life?

    While at the wrestling match today I was able to cut out the interlining of a jacket I plan to make out of silk. It will have a floral/leaf design done in trapunto on the sleeves, the chest panels and up the middle of the back. It will probably be a long time before it is actually finished. However, it felt nice to actually DO something. A small Christmas wall hanging is in need of binding so I brought that along as well but did not get a chance to work on it.

    I put a turkey in one of the roasting bags prior to leaving and then the match took longer than anticipated and now it is a bit on the dry side…Darn it.

    Have a good one.

  3. Definitely yours to keep Carla. I had that little mini-quilt and when you were so kind to quickly get the little kimono wall hanging done — I thought Carla will like this — just a backing and you can quilt it.

    WooHoo!! Thank you, Barb!! That will make a cute little wallhanging for my studio. I appreciate it! Hugs, C
