Finish it Up!

Friday, June 17, 2011


I'm joining in on Meg's Finish it Up challenge this summer! It's a challenge aimed at trying to finish up Works in Progress (WIPs). Today is the first check in! So, here are my current WIPs.

12. Two cross-stitches. Both pieces about halfway done!

My plan is to get as many of these finished up as I can. I have no intentions of getting them all done, most especially my Mendocino Quilt or United States embroidery. I've enjoyed the slowness of these projects, and don't want to rush them! :)

I am completely jealous of your Mendocino Mermaid quilt. I missed that whole fabric line and am not willing to pay the outrageous prices for it online now... Its going to be AWESOME!

::love:: your modern 12 bee blocks! I think the point of this challenge is to finish what we have, not be inspired and start a new project LOL!

I'm only showing 3 at a time. Beautiful work!

I really love your Mermaid quilt. I can't wait to see more! I made a new rule for myself: I have to finish 2 WIPs before i start every new project. I hate it, and I hate all of the UFOs in my cupboard, but I really want to start some new things, and make room for more fabric! So I'm sticking to my new rule! :)

Jacey said...

Ooh, so many beautiful WIPs in your corner! I think I'll join up as well. I've got lots of crafty finishing goals before the end of the summer. Good luck in tackling your list!

Wow, wow, wow! I had no idea you had so many lovely works in progress. You must have a great organization system. My sewing corner/dining room seems to clog up at 3 in process ;)
