Focus projects this week


Even if I was sliding all over my to do list and beyond last week, I find that a focus list is good for me :-)
Even if I do not always keep to the list, I make progress in my WISP pile.

This week's focus projects are:
1. The Christmas Heart table cloth - it is ready for quilting
2. A drawstring pouch with the Christmas tree stitchery on it.
3. A makeup purse lacking some decoration (stitchery?) and the last seams.
4. A secret project :-)

Have you noticed that all the projects you can see includes red or pink?
Eira asked on my last post which colour red I prefer when doing stitchery. I most often use # 321 - Christmas red, or #498 Red wine red. I do use others from time to time too, but I very often return to these two. # 815 + # 816 are nice too.

  1. Hi Hanne... You are right to stay focas.... I am the same way and I always side tracked to start a new project... I can't waite to see your quilt done... :)

  2. I'm not sure what you are making in your picture, but I can tell you that I love it :) I love red as well and use the same threads as you do.

  3. Great projects. I stick to the focus list I had last week.

  4. You always manage to accomplish a lot, focused or not.

    I think your idea of focus projects is a great one. So great, I'm copying you. :) Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. Du er nå så flink til å holde fokus! Mange flotte prosjekter å se, og vipps så er de ferdige :o))

  6. Det var lurt med fokusarbeider, det har jeg adobterte. Jeg klarer ikke bare å holde på med ett prosjekt om gangen, må ha litt variasjon. Her så det ut til å bli mye spennende.

  7. Så mange flotte prosjekter, men det som smelter hjertet mitt er den vakre pusekatten under strykebrettet.)))
