WIPW - Nearing the End

 It is time for another Work In Progress Wednesday report.

Freeform Embroidery

This project is nearing its end, I started it in July last year, so it has been brewing for 15 months. 

Most of the areas are now filled in. What's left will be a few stitches here and there, then there is the stretching and finishing with a border.

During the last week I added these stitches: Knotted Sheaf, God's Eye, German Knotted Braid, Tvistsöm and Woven Circle.

Log Cabin Challenge
I made another ten blocks. Totally I now have 280 blocks.

However, I am running out of the metallic fabric I am using for the centre piece. From my stash of fancy dressmaking fabric I pulled out another type of metallic, in the colours of the rainbow. The gold can be used for the this Log Cabin Challenge, there is yellow gold and cool silvery gold.

Here you can compare them: Copper (the one I am running out of) on the left, gold (what I started out with) in the middle, and gold (the new one). This one is more structured - its a roaring fire in the hearth!

Crazy for Crazy

Other pieces I pulled out from the stash were these in teal that I will be using for the next Crazy Quilt Octagon block. 

I have not selected ornaments or lace/ribbon yet, but I will try my hand at making a shirtwaist button, and I have plenty of gold pearls and beads.

Tvistsöm Cushion

I made another few rows...


  1. Fifteen months! Time flies. You've made great progress on all the projects. Staying home is good for our stitching projects.

  2. I do like your "roaring fire" fabric!

  3. You get so much done in a week's time!

  4. I love your different stitches, Queenie. They look very nice :)
    Have a lovely day,

  5. I always love your colour combinations. Your stitching is beautiful.

  6. Your free form project is truly amazing! Good choices and planning for your next CC block
    The new shiny hearth fabric fits right in with the others, you're getting plenty accomplished.
