So, introduction first...I'm Erin. I'm a college librarian, mom, juvenile diabetic, Renaissance Faire geek, oboe player, and terrible housekeeper. I've attempted to join the WIPocalypse in 2012 and 2015, and always failed to keep up. But its a new year! I'm blindly optimistic! Here goes!
1) Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue. Ha. Haha. Hahahahahahaha. Yeah, this one was started back in.....2007? 2008? It got packed away when we moved, then I got pregnant, then we moved again, then parenting happened....poor girls. I may just pretend this one doesn't exist. And on that note...
2)...Dragon Dreams' Dragon Virtues afghan. I started this in 2002, after we got married, and vowed I would not contemplate procreating until it was finished. I have a 7 year old. It is not finished.
3) Nora Corbett's Letters from Nora - M Fairy. There IS hope for this one. It will be my daughter's when finished.
(I've also made changes - for example, those lazy daisies. In the chart, they are just cross-stitched hearts, which looked way too 1985 for my taste.)
5) Ship's Manor's Beautiful Sea. I joined the SAL in 2016, but obviously didn't manage to complete it on schedule. However, this is the piece that is currently getting most of my attention.
Those five - and especially the last 3 - are the ones I really want to focus on. I'm also participating in the Smalls SAL again, so there should be at least 12 little finishes scattered in amongst the big projects this year! And you never know what else I might find as I clean out various bags, bins, and cubbies...
And now for a bit of a confession. I've had a rough patch with a certain friend, and for some reason when that happens I start quilting. Maybe the colors and lines just soothe my soul a bit, I don't know....but whatever the reason, I've started not one but TWO projects. LOL
First up is what is quickly becoming a DC superhero quilt for my husband. Those three large panels with the quotes are approximately 20 inches square, so I'm envisioning something about 45 inches wide by 65 inches long, depending on borders and such. Here's my start (the only thing actually sewn together on the left side is the black border around the comic book page).
And at the top of the stash picture, you can see the fabrics that will become what I have named my "disappearing nerd-patch."
This one will be all mine when it is finished!! I have no idea what size it will be, I'm just playing and having fun. I started with a nine-patch made of 6-inch squares, so it will grow pretty quickly.
