WIP Wednesday

I am linking up with WIP Wednesday for the first time today,  perfect for a list loving girl!

I only have one project carried over from last year, but only due to the fact that I had a week off work in November, with 24/7 babysitting from the Grannies. 


I am roughly following Rachel's Circle stitch along, which I have been admiring on Flikr for months.  I say roughly as I have a hard time reading and following instructions, which normally ends in disaster.

I have made two of the circle designs and the plan is to turn  them into cushions once I have finally finished the handstitching.  I am a very new handstitcher, up till late last year I used to make my MIL stitch my binding down for me:)

New projects:

Colour brick quilt from Stitched in Colour.  I have got as far as sewing the short sashing on and sorting into eleven piles ready for sewing into strips.  Progress on this is being hampered by my new Kindle arriving this week, and the fact that I have to go to work!

Not being the brightest spark, I chose the smallest part of my living room to lay the bricks out!

This weeks stats:
