WOYWW - 28th April 2010

I'm Late! I'm Late! I'm so very, very late!

Hello fellow WOYWWers!

it took me two days to visit you all last week - and that was only the people who left a comment on my blog - I am sorry I did get around to visiting everyone!

I have given myself a break from sitting a the computer and have been attempting to lessen my UFOs (UnFinished Objects) by doing some cross stitch ;-)

This project has been sitting around for many years - I had to stop when it became too hard to see the grid ;-)  I eventually enlarged the pattern but need the magnifyer to see where I am sewing ;-(

I must say, I am very pleased to be at the tail end of this one.
Finally up to the backstitch stage - the end is in sight!

If you want to have a 'look see' at other people's workdesks, click on the WOYWW icon on my sidebar - you will be impressed!

Here is Baby Quilt1 - I am not sure I am completely happy with this layout - I think it is a bit busy now that I have been looking at it for a while - maybe that is why I have not actually started sewing the strips together.

Here is Baby Quilt2 - a very simple easy 9 block layout that came together very quickly ;-)

I went out to Spotlight and got the batting during the week, so I think it is time to actually start sewing it all together.  I need to investigate the 'quilting' process - I think I will have to give it to someone to quilt - hopefully there is someone closeby that can do it.  Any recommendations for anyone in Adelaide??

Must be off, my laboursaving device (washing machine) is beeping to tell me it needs my attention ;-)

Have a good weekend!


  1. Hi Cathy, I'm tyring to complete some UFOs too and have been working on a x-stitch project this week :) For the first time ever I'm visiting ALL workspaces. Nearly did it last week but didn't go back to those who joined in later than me. I did feel it was too time-consuming to visit everyone but thought I'd try it and see just once. I've found anyway that some people don't leave a comment even when I've left comments on theirs more than once. - sorry for moaning.
    Love the x-stitch :) (I can't find my magnifier)

  2. ohooo UFO's! We saw one once, well it started off as one orange thing and then suddenly burst (silently) into about five white orbs. No, it wasn't firework night and we weren't just coming back from the pub! Love your quilts, I can image how cozy they'll be!

  3. Hiya

    your patchwork quilts are just so beautiful,and such lovely fabric


  4. Sorry I am definitely not into quilting, which is why I haven't left comments earlier, but I must admit that you will be so happy with them when they are completed.
    An amazing amount of work involved, and no, don't know anyone in Adelaide to help you out. When is the Quilting and Craft Fair on?


  5. thanks for comments everyone!
    Linda, I have to wait until November for the Quilt & Craft Fair - I have already put it in my calendar - I missed out last year, but don't intend to miss it this year ;-)

  6. Hello Cathy,love the cross stich good luck with finishing it. Have a great week.

  7. Lovely x-stitch

    UFO's - got way too many!

  8. Cathy - finishing UFOs s the sort of work that earns medals!! The cross stich is beautiful (but terrifying)! So are the quilts - gorgeous colours. I wonder how long you'll walk around the pattern before you change or commit to it...your inner designer shrieking at you!

  9. Cross stitch, quilting..... all very impressive. Great snoop today.... better late than never!

  10. I thought I had finished when on friday I got to 99 ...sorry this is a week late but I love your stiching. Know what you mean about problem eyes though. You quilts are wonderful...especially the first one ...never tried quilting /patch work ...very tempted.


Hi there, thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment - it is greatly appreciated.
