WIP - an optimistic list!

After yesterday's post,  I thought I would share some of the plans....  I'm not linking up the bits that I have absolutely no hope of finishing, so this list is a lot shorter than the one  in my head!

Item 1 (and possibly 2): cushions for the new nieces/nephews
I can't start these until the wee ones are born - they'll be cousins,  not siblings - but the plan is to use the fabric I bought last week for their quilts,  and to make 4 x economy blocks (jumping on the bandwagon in a manageable way!

Item 2: Wall hanging
I made 4 of these lonestar blocks last year with my Simply Solids Stash Club fabric. I was aiming to make 12 blocks,  but let's face it,  that's not going to happen! I'm thinking about adding a red and navy pair to finish it off.

Item 3: crocheted blanket
This was originally started for the boy,  but he has a million and one blankets,  so it's going to my BFF's baby - we really are having a bit of a baby boom!

The WIP list is much,  much longer,  but I'm trying to be realistic! Linking up with Katy at The Littlest Thistle

NB - Sorry for the crappy IG screen shots - can't figure out how to get Flickr to work on the new tablet!


  1. Ah yes, the perennial 'do I list what's reasonable or everything I can think of' challenge ;o) Good luck with the list!

  2. Love those Lone Stars. Good luck xxx

  3. I love your lonestar blocks, they are brilliant. They would look great as a wall hanging.

  4. Made me giggle seeing my name on one of your IG photos but left me wondering how I'd missed your other two?! Good look with your list, I daren't make one, far too scary :D

  5. Good luck with your list, the lone star blocks are lovely.

  6. I love those Lone Star blocks! Good luck with the list!

  7. Such beautiful work, as always! Now you really do have your hands full!

  8. Love love love the lonestar blocks. Good luck with it.
