Some updates on ongoing projects

If you're a regular reader of my blog you know I have quite some ongoing projects. Progress is not always as fast as I would like to, but there is progress and that's what counts, isn't it?

This week I have to show some beading on Holland Springtime. It takes a lot more time than I expected, so there is only a small area done.

Call of the Raven however, is going fast. I have been concentrating on her this whole week and I finished another page. Only one to go and than there's a row finished again.

My quilting blocks are also coming together. Block three of Hearts Desire is stitched now, two more to go before I can move on to block four.

This weekend I have been washing and ironing the fabrics I am going to use on a new project, a Jane Austen quilt. The pattern is in a book of Kaffe Fassett and I am going to use fabrics with an Asian print. The pink/lilac fabric is meant to be used for background.

There's only one week in which I am going to work and then the LONG holiday starts. Nine weeks off from work, so in that period I am planning to work on Jane. I think I can make a good start :)

Tweets and Hearts

First, thank you all for your nice compliments! I really love reading them and they make me happy!

It has been two weeks since I finished Red Delicious. Every morning when I wake up its the first thing I see (I sleep with my back to DH LOL) and every morning I enjoy it. But time to move on, so some other things are catching my attention now: I finished block 5 of My Tweets and I prepared block 3, 4 and 5 of Hearts Desire. To give you an overview I made a collage (in fact Picasa did it for me).

and Hearts Desire

This week Call of the Raven has been my stitching project for the evening and I achieved quite some progress.

Of course I have been testing my new quilt hoop stand. It's a pleasure to work with it. The hoop is bigger and I don't have to hold the heavy quilt! I am quilting on Baltimore Bliss.
