New WIP photos

I just got time to do this. I spent the last hour lugging magazines to the garage. Oh, la, is my sewing room messy. But I've managed to move the sewing machine to beside the couch (and found out that it actually can be used to sew clothes, which I freely admit I was slightly worried it could not do, but I guess that would have been suitable punishment for leaving it in the box this long) and I had a sort through my magazines and found things I want to stitch, so this is good. But I guess I better get that pile off the dining room table. HMMMM . . .

Carrying on, I have time to share photos of my WIPs. You can't laugh. They're slightly pathetic at this point.

First is the Hummingbird Trellis afghan. I haven't worked on it in at least a year. You can almost see a hummer there, now that I'm working with a lot of half stitches. I figure if I can get two squares done by the end of the year, that's good progress.

Then we have LK's Cat Lover Too, my work project. It's a pretty fun stitch. It will probably end up as a pillow. This is probably one of the oldest charts in my stash. When I picked it up 3 weeks ago, all that was done were a few stitches in the heart. I gave up quickly on this one, LOL. But it should be done in a few weeks. I did make a few color changes to give it a bit more punch. And I don't think I'll be using that Sugar Plum (the bird) again. Very odd dyejob.

Such totally different projects!

And you are tackling another afghan ... I am impressed ... it is a lovely one.

The Cat Lover looks like it will be fun with the "punch" of all those bright clear colors.

I look forward to tracking your progress on both.

Ah those WIP's from the bottom of the pile. Isn't it amazing that they eventually call to us and we haul them out again!!

i love your progress and really like the colours you chose for the lk so funky :)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
