WIP Along 2022 – My Week 1 progress

By August 29, 2022September 14th, 2022blog, WIPAlong2022

So this past week I have had TWO finishes!! Yay!! It felt soooo good to be able to tick off a couple of finishes and get some projects that have been sitting for a little while, done!

The first was my XL Zippy Project bag in Buttercup and Slate

Now I do have to admit that this project hasn’t been sitting around for all that long, but long enough to be moved about 15 times from cutting table, to side table, to sewing machine, to floor and all the places in between! Ie long enough to be a pain in the butt!

So it is lovely to have it finished which also means I can USE it! double yay!

You can see more pictures of the XL Zippy Project bag make and how you can get the Zippy Project bag pattern in this earlier blog post.

The second project that I have finished was my first ever EPP project (english paper piecing). This one was just a bit of fun and I’ll show this one in more detail at some future point.

It was started back in the beginning of 2021 just before I got ill and had to spend time in hospital and recovering on the couch, so perfect timing to start a hand sewing project!

There was also a little bit of fabric left over from my XL Zippy Project bag, so I made a cute hexie double sided mug rug AND a little key fob. After these pics I also added in some hand stitching detail with some green perle cotton which I will definitely be doing more of in future!

And I have also made a few more blocks for my long term EPP project – my Prudence Quilt!

Prudence is definitely a longer term project… I need 60 of the main blocks and I have made 38. And there are 61 background blocks to be made and I have made 21. So plenty more to keep my busy at nights in front of the TV!

    Well done. Love your hexis, something I’ve not done again since the late 70’s. You have spurred me on though to get some very old flimsies from the “tub of shame”, and get them quilted & bound. Thank you. Take care & hugs.
