Happy New Year and welcome to the start of a new challenge. This year Anne and I have decided to do
:: 6 old and
:: 6 new projects
With the 6 old (or ufo’s), all we ask is Substantial Progress, but if you get a finish that’s great! (I do lots of hand work so to get something finished is going to take time, hence Substantial Progress is a better ask, and not so demanding)
With the new projects, well, we all get distracted by the bright, new and shiny, so if something takes your fancy along the way, make it one of your 6 new!
Now is the chance to put forward your list of 6 old/ufo’s, and if anything bright, new and shiny has already taken your fancy (like me), you can start your 6 new list here too.
I’m carrying forward a couple of ufo’s from last year (that I didn’t get to!!) plus a couple of others I know are lurking in the sewing room, so my 6 ufo’s list is:
- The Aunts’ Quilt
- Improv Waterfall Quilt
- Strawberry Parfait
- + and x
- 1930’s quilt (have a vague recollection of what it looks like, but not sure of the name – it’s there somewhere!)
and for the start of my 6 new
- “Pannier” I’m joining in with Cecile for her challenge which you can read about here and using this as my inspiration fabric
- “Bella Ruby” which is a kit from Treehouse Textiles that just called out to me
