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 :)

Wow, lots going on with you. The beading looks great, as does CotR. I have that one on my wishlist, but everytime I see yours, I want to go straight to HAED's site and buy it, lol. Quilt block looks great, and I can't wait to see your other quilt. Love the fabbies you chose for it!

Wat mooi toch allemaal, fijn dat ik zo je foto's van je borduurwerk nog even kon uitvergroten - prachtig!

Great progress on your pieces. Even if you don't see the progress we do each time and it is fun to watch it.
Great stitching

Great stitching on both pieces. Love your quilt square too. And will cheer you on from the side line with your new quilt. You chose great fabrics for it.

WOW! You are making great progress on your WIP's! I understand about not always having time...story of my life! But I do enjoy seeing other's progress. Thanks for sharing!

I see you have a lot lined up for your long vacation. :) I hope you can get it all accomplished. The colors for the Jane quilt are lovely. Love the shades of lilac.

Your stitching all looks fabulous. Both pieces are progressing beautifully.

All of your stitching and sewing is wonderful as always, Joke, but especially the Holland Mandala (I'm sure I'm repeating myself for the umpteenth time...)

Holland Garden is beautiful...Call of the Raven has very striking colors and I love the quilting fabrics.
