WiP


In order to motivate myself to finish things and to blog more this year I decided to sign up for hosting TGIFF.


This Friday January 19th is my turn!
Will I finish few paper tins covers?


I have partially sewed up green, yellow and orange squares.


Or will I finish this creature? We'll see.
If you have a finish please come back and link up with TGIFF once the link is open.
Have a great week everyone!

2018 FAL Q1 list


Time to make the list for Q1. Here is mine:


Some projects are new. Some are pretty old.


I started paper tin covers. I made one as trial and pretty much love it.


Prairie point pouches are my current OMG goal.


I precut some fabrics and vinyl in December. Time to finish those vinyl pouches.


Pig cushion to be finished.


Echino bag in progress.



And ongoing project love wall hanging.

Love mini


One more finish from my FAL Q4 list is this mini. That makes it 2/5.


Plus my sewing space got some updates. I did go through my drawers but more sorting is required.


I made decision to have no visible binding on front side. I left overlapping fabric to create binding at the back.

I have no idea what this technique is called.


I used local pearl cotton which I have in many color shades. It is called Perlovka.


I'm not sure if my binding method was good idea and I'm little pissed that the embroidery is not well centered. You know those doubts when you finish something.


For those curious souls it ended up 6x9".

OMG - 01


New Year, new goals and plans to be set up.
I have participated in OMG goals last year and I would like to continue with it.
I find it hard to pick just one goal each month with many ufos and wips in my drawers. Therefore I choose to try out new too me tutorial from the web: PRAIRIE POINT POUCH TUTORIAL



Choosing fabrics might be complicated task too. I have passed quite easily though. I went with some on top and found matching zippers too! Remember, matching zipper is the key factor :)


These fabrics are called Nordika and I have them in my stash for a while. It's time to put them in use. I used some of them on my 241 tote. Choose your goal and join in the fun.

OMG - 12 finished


I knew there won't be much time in December so I picked my OMG goal wisely.


I managed the blue section I wanted.


Added some green.


And solid pink.


These are no longer scrappy like the first lot I made years ago. You can find the tut here.


They are the same size. I had this idea of having one solid + 2 of each color. I haven't realized that it would be too many.


So we will see what I'll end up with. I might have 2 of each color only and move the rest on another rack.


This will have to wait as I'm out of order these days. I underwent surgery on my right shoulder and cannot move with my right hand fully to have it healed/recovered properly.

I hope all of you had lovely holidays and approaching New year in optimistic spirit :) I surely do.
