Work in Progress Wednesday Block 39 started

Lace Quilt Block startIt is work in progress report time again. How did that happen so quickly?

This week I have started in on this block for my lace quilt. This is one of the darkest blocks on the quilt and I have yet to do any embroidery on it. Next week I hope to share what I have done.

You will find all the other blocks to this quilt in the Lace Quilt category

Work in Progress Wednesdays (WIP Wednesdays)  is not exactly a challenge as it is more like a support group! The aim is to encourage people to complete  languishing projects or WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) or completing UFOs (unfinished objects) or those in the process of de-stashing.

The idea is, that if you regularly report publicly on a project you are more likely to pick it up and work it a little. Even if it means the project is out and ‘looking at you’ for most stitchers it means they will work it a little. So if you have something you want to share please do!

Leave a comment with a link to your site. If you include the http bit of your web address in the comment it will become a link and folks can visit and see what you have done.

Work in Progress Wednesday Block 38 done

OK I am late this morning because I have been unwrapping birthday presents. Jerry gave me  a Wacom drawing tablet! I have yet to use it, but I am itching to play with it. Not only that, but we have a cool change and the temperature is comfortable. What more could I want?

Lace Quilt Block  38Anyway back to stitching before I side track myself chattering on about Illustrator and drawing with stylus instead of a mouse – which is what I have done for years.

I want to share my work in progress for this week. I have finished block 38 of my next quilt.  Stitching this block was like pulling teeth, but am am pleased to report it is done so the project has progressed a little more towards completion. Click on the image to see a larger version of the block. I hope readers enjoy it.

I think I am a little tired of the quieter colours and am itching to break out into some brighter more jewel tone colour schemes but unfortunately this quilt is mainly muted colour schemes. Maybe  I need to make a bag or a purse of something!

Work in Progress Wednesday Changes!

On Monday when I asked I was pleasantly surprised to find out there are quite a few people who are interested in continuing with Work in Progress Wednesdays.

I think we can make WIP Wednesdays more inclusive of other types of stitching projects. The idea started out to encourage people to complete large and/or languishing projects but I think we can include things like UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) de-stashing or any stitching project you want to share. Going public and sharing does help people push themselves to complete a project or reach a stitching goal.

I want to stress that you do not have to have something finished to post just something done that week! Every week in which you want to participate you need to post photo of how you have progressed on a blog, or one of the free public photo sites like flickr.

The come back to Pintangle as each Wednesday there will be a Work in Progress Wednesday post on which you can leave a comment with a link to your site or photograph. This is so people can visit and see how you are going!

You can rotate projects, or just participate occasionally the idea is to share progress.

Any questions? Ask them in the comments and I will respond to them there.

Help spread the word 

Please link to Pintangle, so that people hear about it. Help spread the word and others will join.

what I will do is if I have not managed to stitch that week (because I am working on a book) I will open a post so people can leave a comment and have visitors. That said I will try and share some stitching each week. I am sure there are some weeks I will not manage it but I figure, aim for the stars and I will hit the moon.

block 38 of CQ lace quilt OK for this weeks progress – hang my head –  the last time I reported on this block, was here, Block 38 of my lace quilt I had started it in August last year! Visit the post to see what it looked like then.
Progress has been made but only a little as I still have beads and buttons etc to add.
Anyway I hope to get it done for next Wednesday.
