Work In Progress Wednesday - July 4

It’s Wednesday, time to show you the progress on my quilt. This week I grabbed my supplies, hooped my quilt and made the first stitches in the ditch. I only finished the biggest flower.
I enjoyed to see the change of my quilt with just a few stitches. There’s a bigger photo of this detail on my Flickr-page.
Sharon wrote a large post this week with lots of tips on how to manage large projects. For me planning the time is a big issue. Last month I kept a notebook at my side when I was stitching to write the beginning and ending time. Not only the stitching time, but I also included the time needed to get ready and the time to put it away again. It was a real eye-opener!

  1. Yes time to set up and put away is a huge issue in family life. I have a room now that means I can just close the door on it all. Before I had that however I kept what ever I working on in a one big plastic storage box in the bottom of my wardrobe. I would pull it out work on what ever it was toss everything back in and then put it away. It is probably one of the reasons I am organised still as when I worked full time I hated having my one afternoon a week spent looking for this or that thing in order to do something. That can be really annoying!

  3. the fabric is lovely you have used here, has an antique look to me and the work is immaculate.

    When I did my C & G we had to keep a record of time spent on ever project and yes I was amazed, if you wanted to sell work you could never get anywhere what you should for time spent on a design.
