WIP Wednesday {a.k.a. confession}

I got a little inspired by everyone's Work In Progress Wednesday posts, so I decided to post about my WIPs today. You see, usually, all those lovely WIP posts make me feel overwhelmed and a tad bit disappointed in myself! I have A LOT of unfinished items, but so does everyone else! I totally get it now. We're all in this together! So, without further ado, here are {some of} my in progress projects, and you might just find out a few more things about me as you read through them!

First up is a scarf that I began working on over Christmas break. Wow. I sure got far on this one. Now that spring is here, I doubt I'll get motivated to finish it any time soon. I will just have to remember to get it finished before it gets cold again! {Yes, that is the mark on my table where my rotary cutter so nicely introduced itself to the wood.}

This is a pixelated houndstooth block that I started working on for a baby quilt. I haven't worked on this one since before Christmas either. Once I got this much done, I totally lost interest. What do you think? Is it worth saving? It measures 20x20 and I'll need to make 4 more to make a small baby quilt. I'm not in love with it, but I still have to wonder if I would love it after I had quilted it. I would love your input! Should I scrap it or press on?

I do a little bit of shuttle tatting. These are some floral motif medallions that I have finished tatting and have yet to sew in my ends and attach them to something! They will likely end up as jewelry or greeting cards, if I ever get around to it!

Next up is a chevron patterned crocheted throw that I've been working on for a couple of weeks. This, I do love and will probably finish it up soon!

There you have it. Those are some of my works in progress. I'll have to save the rest for a later post! And to summarize my overall status:

  1. Oh, my gosh... LOVE the chevron throw. Must learn to crochet. Still just a knit girl, myself. :)

  2. Wow, I think the pixelated houndstooth is fabulous and I think would make a really stunning quilt
