This week was mostly taken up with my new project, the Foundation Paper Piecing For The Terrified SAL, but I did whip up a quilt top too…

Finishes this week:

Block 1 for FPPFTT, which I turned into a pouch:

I got block 2 done too, but I’ll wait til tomorrow to preview it :o)

In Progress This Week:

I completed my Stained QAL top this afternoon, except for the borders.  Apologies for the truly awful pic, but it was the best I could do here at night!  I used a fat quarter bundle of Innocent Crush that I had bought with no specific purpose in mind, but I had a bit of a lightbulb moment just before I was due to start cutting for this, so it’s going to become my granny’s birthday pressie

I decided to cut the fabric I have so far for the FTLOS swap, but I’m still waiting on the last 2 fabrics :o(

No Progress This Week:

SHQ QAL- I will get block 10 done tonight I hope, and after that there’s only 2 more blocks

The bag I started 4 weeks ago – this is beginning to get embarrassing!

To Be Worked On This Week:


That bag I started 4 weeks ago!!!

It was an utterly frustrating week for me this week, since the chest infection came on again with a vengeance, and having, rather ill-advisedly ventured into work on Monday, I spent time yesterday with the doc getting a lecture and loaded up on steroids, inhalers and antibiotics, and a flea in my ear about how long it had been since I attended the asthma clinic, so no exercise for me this week :o/  I’m REALLY hoping I’ll be back to doing things by next Monday!!!
