WIP Wednesday

Joining a few others in WIP Wednesday - I will try to post all my WIPs, UFOs, Stash busters, stash builders [weak moment] and all kinds of projects. There may be some cross over to Weekend To-Do but remember how much I LOVE lists!
  • Churchouse Mohair loop did not see the light of day
  • some quilting happened - not sure what it is; but I just can't figure out what I want to do on my AMH quilt
I am really enjoying knitting these socks! As you can tell I am SLOOOOW knitter. I usually knit at night while catching up on TV. Probably in the next day or so I will be tackling the heel.

Amaya's Poodle skirt turned into a Dachshund skirt - this was easy and fun to make. I used Simplicity pattern 5401.

Traced the pattern for my PJs. I don't cut the actual pattern - I use Sweedish tracing paper for this.

  Finally quilted the Rectangled Squared quilt and it is ready for the hand binding...

**DO NOT SCROLL DOWN**  if you are offended by foul language.

I decided to cross stitch one of the patchwork heart pillow covers. This is my first time using waste canvas. This canvas allows you to cross stitch onto anything - here is a great tutorial from Wee Little Stitches. It's almost going to be like a reveal when I am finished with it! This will be for a friend that has survived Cancer. LOVE this pattern by Subversive Cross Stitch. It's exactly how I feel about Cancer.

Projects that are hanging out...

  • PJs for Amaya and Cole
  • UofO quilt
  • Piecing batting


  1. Hi, Paula! Just wanted to pop in and tell you how much I love reading your lists, seeing your PL and admiring all your fabric craft. I feel the same way about cancer! Absolutely loving your pieced hearts!

    I've only dabbled in quilting over the years (simple tied quilts), and have been getting the itch to make something cuddly! Always inspired after visiting. Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Paula, you have been a busy bee. It is so fun to see all of your incredible creations!

    1. That is what happens when you are not working!

  3. Paula, I'm always amazed at all you have going on. I was surprised to see Simplicity is still going - haven't seen any of their pattern books (do they still have the books?) in ages. Great idea knitting the 2 socks at the same time.

    1. Thanks Gail! right now I am not working so I have time to work on all these projects...yes simplicity is still around maybe not in Canada??


I love hearing from you and I always try to reply! Unfortunately blogger doesn't notify you when I do - so be sure to check back or let me know if you want me to email you directly. :)
