Finally- A Giveaway!

Sometime back I posted about a Chinese coins quilt that I had started.  How am I doing on that you ask?  Well let me tell you: 

Since I started that. this little quilt called to be made:


Of course I still need to quilt it.

And then the hexagon bug bit me and I have been working on this:


The colors are prettier, honest.

I told you all that Adrienne is getting married so I am working on something for her (just a closeup of fabric-she reads this blog):


Oh dear-sorry so blurry!

And  I am quilting this wallhanging for a dear lady who is taking sewing lessons from me:


Now I know that I am not the only one out there juggling more than one project. (By the way, I also have a quilt on a frame that I am hand quilting).  But I am curious as to how many you all are juggling.

With that end, I thought I would have a giveaway.  Leave me a comment and tell me how many projects you are working on.  I will pick a random number on Wednesday, May 27 at 9:00 pm EST. The winner will receive this little package from my overstuffed sewing room:


Just one entry per person please!  Good luck!

Hi Diane - I'm another one who works on multiple projects at a time, wouldn't know how to behave if I didn't have multiple projects going at one time....LOL

At the moment I have the following in various states of progress - a christmas table runner, a christmas tabletopper, 2 donation quilts for American Heroes, 120 9-patch blocks for a swap that I'm in, a quilt that is basted and ready to be quilted, a cross-stitch kit that will be a christmas gift, and am getting ready to start a pair of pants for myself. And nope, that doesn't count my UFO's.

Thanks Judy from NY

i actually stopped counting when my UFO list hit the 100 mark.

on my current list of to do is a veterans lap quilt by the guild meeting (first Thursday). 2 charity quilts to quilt. A string quilt sample for Marjory's trunk show for the Interfaith Quilt Bee, a schlep bag out of upholstery fabrics, figure out a knitting project bag, finish the 2nd pair of sock monkey woolies, finish the wool shorties. There has to be more...ah, yes, the quilt for my grandniece...and a wedding quilt...and fix my daughters college graduation quilt that a dog chewed a hole through...

Oh dear...
3 wall hangings. (all done except some embellishing and quilting)
2 stacked posies
xlg throw scrappy for friend (needs quilting)
prayer shawl for friend
swap blocks-gotta get those done today, am hung up on the colors
baby quilt
Lets not even count the older least 15 of those hanging around.
WHY do we let other things in our lives always take precedence over the things we love to do?

susan said...

do we really have to put a number on it?....i'd say i have at least a dozen finished tops ready for my little gammill; about 5 more in various stages and then there are wall hangings and now knitting ?!! one of these days they will all get done and i will still be working on something else.

I'm ashamed to have to admit publicly just how many projects are still in the UFO stage...yikes
Okay off the top of my head...I have the following still in progress, I won't tell you for how long, 3 appliqued tops, 3 hand pieced tops, 2 unfinished hand quilted tops, 4 quilts that still need the binding applied and my DJ or my poor DJ blocks. Thats just off the top of my head.

I have so many projects that I am afraid to count them. Today I made a tote bag out of the leftovers from a BD quilt for my daughter (this thursday). I used 6 blocks inside to make pockets. The quilt fits into the tote bag. So this is a done project. Only 20 more to go!
This weekend I started making little 3 1/2" 9-patches all in black and whites. This will make a miniature version of the BD quilt for my grand daughter's BD in November.
I am working on 2 hexie projects. One is in browns with fussy cut hexies. And the other is going to be white/blue combo. I now have 500 hexies basted. I know it is that many because I bought a package of 500 pre-cut papers. I love the basting...hope I learn to love the stitching together soon as I have quite a pile now.
