WiP & Lazy Bums

What am I working on?  Well -- I'm working on my 'work in progress' list, my 'unfinished object' list and my 'projects half done' list, plus a bit of bee sewing!  I'm crossing things off and what a great feeling that is... but just as soon as I complete something, I add something else!  I reckon the busier I am the more fun I have :)

Here are just a few of the things I have been working on:


I am also working on a block for Miss August in Bee Europa.  We are to make a block with a word relating to tea or tea time.  I have drawn a couple things but am yet to start the improv lettering.

I am also working on my Sailor Mouth Swap item.  So far I only have a mildly rude phrase embroidered on some fabric which will probably eventually become a pencil case. The posting deadline is 1st to 8th September so the pressure is on to get a large item (pillow, bag or large embroidered hoop) and a small item/extras finished.  In a week, look at my Flickr photostream if you want to see what I (eventually) sew. 

And lastly, the Lazy Bums group set me an August Challenge.  Random Number Generator picked Project #32 from my UFO list and I accepted the challenge and completed it!  I had to sew my wash-care label onto my Plaid Log Cabin Quilt (one of my very first quilts ever made) which makes it a completed project - finally!!  And the best bit - I have a UFO crossed off my list!
