WIP Thursday

So Wednesday was a good day but it just got away with me and by the time I even remembered to post I was tucked up in bed about to go to sleep. So it just didn't happen.

Now I have been stitching quite a bit but like most stitching at the moment I can't show you my progress because I think she reads/at least sees the pictures from my blog. Though I have managed a tiny amount on Baroque.

Everytime I see photos of this project I think I LOVE the colours and how they look. It is such an exciting piece.

That said I am making a whole pile of stuff at the moment. I showed you the skirt I made Lana on Sunday and I've already got another one started this one will be made from a pair of old jeans.

I've cut them out here and I've got to sew the skirt bottom on sometime ... when I can get the iron onto the fabric and then cut it up.
This pair of jeans was about 4 inches too short (she's very long in the legs) and very ripped around the knees. The waist band though still fits with plenty of room so I'll take advantage of that and use it.

I have also been in a finishing mood. I managed to almost finish a turtle that has been hanging around in a box for the last year waiting for me to sew the last couple of parts. Maybe not quite that bad but.....

Now I say almost finished because I just need to add the eyes the only problem is I'm debating what colour and the felt is all upstairs and that is too far to bother yet. It will get done but not quite yet....

Oh well, happy stitching everyone I'm going to continue with avoiding my assignment.


  1. Nice projects Caitlin. I really like Baroque.


  2. I just had a friend finish Baroque all in one colour so its interesting seeing it in several colours!

  3. Oh my, I just love that little turtle. So adorable!
    Your stitching is beautiful!
    My daughter is getting into sewing, but she hasn't attempted to make her own clothes yet. She is getting close though.

  4. How clever to make a skirt out of an old pair of jeans. I cannot wait to see the finished article.

  5. Baroque is looking lovely. Lots of mini finishes to keep you inspired and encouraged.


Thank you for your comments I love to hear from you.
