Some Works in Progress

Whew! Still working on organization. My room will never look like those lovely studios that I see on other blogs, but if I keep this up at least I will be able to work for a while in a cleaner, more organized atmosphere.

Here are some of the WIP's that have surfaced as I clear the room. Some have been on my design board for a year or more, and in the mess that has accumulated become invisible to me. Funny, how you cease to see what is right in front of you.

I know what I want to do with this forest, but I'm not sure how I want to do it just stays where it is, and then I forget about it altogether.And , oh yeah, there was this little applique that I was going to do before getting busy on some other project.This quilt has been in progress for quite a while. At some point, I folded it up and put it away, but I'm working on the hand quilting again. The interior is all quilted, but the borders aren't done yet. I'm quilting circles and fans in the border. Hard to see the quilting because it is black on black, but if you click on the picture below, you can see the circles and the echo quilting.


  1. Ooooo, love that forest piece. Is it painted on fabric?
    Kudos to you for quilting black on black. I made ONE quilt like that and said never again - I nearly went blind trying to see that black thread on the black fabric.

  2. I love that quilt. I think it's all the simple shapes, and straightforward colours, and especially those circles!


Good to hear from you!
