WIP Wednesday 10/14/2015


My stitching time has been limited this week. My main goal was to finish Kathy Shaw's free Intermediate Crazy Quilt Course (ICQC) #102. I almost made it! I have one more task to finish and hope to get that done tomorrow. Today, I finished embellishing this beautiful mermaid design. I am trying to decide if I will sew it into a fabric postcard or a mug rug. (I am leaning toward a mug rug - as it is functional.) I will be sure to share a picture when it is finished.

My sewing machine is out, so I hope to finish up several projects over the next few days. (For me, sewing feels like a chore, but I do love finishing off my embroidery projects.)

Last Week's Goals:
1. Link up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party #27 at Super Mom No Cape on October 12th. (If you missed the party on the 5th, you may check it out here!) It will be an update on my HAED Twilight Duel cross-stitch! I had 1,422 stitches completed when I last shared my progress. It has over 3,700 stitches now and should have more by then. Done! If you missed it, the post is here
2. Finish a project to add inventory to my Etsy shop. It is oh so close! It is all cut and ready to sew in the morning.

3. Complete my ICQC 102 course from Shawkl Designs. Almost! I have one task to complete.

4. Share a TAST Week 14 post on October 13th. Done! If you missed the post, it is here

5. Finish embellishing one of Kathy's blocks for the CQI UTS Round Robin. Done! If you missed it, the post is here
6. Share Annette's blocks for the CQI UTS Round Robin. (They were mailed to me earlier this week and should be here soon!) Done! If you missed it, the post is here.

7. Finish a Halloween fabric postcard. (Or will it be a mug rug? Decisions, decisions...)


This Week's Goals:
1. Link up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party #28 at Super Mom No Cape on October 19th. (If you missed the party on the 12th, you may check it out here!)

You know what I'm going to suggest as I'm a huge fan of mug rugs. Love what you've done with it.

I love your undersea roses on that mermaid. What a good idea! As always, you have such a nice variety of things going on. I'm guessing you never get bored!

I am behind with my blog reading but I'm slowly catching up and have just read your last blog posts and seen all your lovely pictures.
That's a wonderful mermaid, Renée. And great success on last week's goals.
