This Designing Woman is WIPed Out



These are all of my current works in progress. On the design wall, on another design wall, in a design basket, in another design basket, in another basket, and on my design floor.

If I have the creative urge to start something new...I do. I end up finishing everything I start..it's just that my order gets out of sync along the way!

Shown above:
Books I am reading along with a scrappy solids pincushion ala Jean Wells. Now, I know I said pincushion. I like to think large.  So what if it ended up as a little pillow? It will be done as soon as I add some pins.

Six art quilts in process. Now, I know I said six. And I really have seven. One is already in its envelope at the bottom of the collage. It is completed. They are not.

A basket with 4 little quilts in it. Now, I know a couple of them look done...they just need a label. The other ones? Not so done.

In the center, my progress so far on my Jean Wells class quilt. I've managed three more blocks and some potential borders...but I like how it looks just hangin'...in process, like me.

One very large, very bright quilt you need sunglasses to look at. Imagine me sewing on this thing. No wonder I'm resting from it right now...my eyes are tired and I have indents on my nose.

One AAQI quilt in its Priority Mailing envelope ready to mail. I was at the Post Office on Friday.....picking up more of these little free envelopes, had the little quilt with me, but forgot the mailing address to write on it. Now, I know.....I said (above) that it is done, but obviously 'mail to go out' is not yet mailed, therefore not done.

And if you look under the design table under the six art quilts...oh no! More to do's and therefore not done's under there!

And where am I? I am upstairs in my 90º degree sewing loft. I am having every kind of hot flash a woman can have. Stick a fork in me, I am done.

Phew...didn't think I was going to finish anything today...did you ;)

Where's that quilting cat with the fan and the grapes?
