In Progress...

For a sew-and-show blog, there has been very little showing!  And I suppose, very little sewing!  I've been (slowly) working on some stuff though.

Here's a pic of my cross-stitch:


And one of my pyjamas.  The pocket is absolutely terrible but I need the pyjamas rather urgently so I'm just trying to get them done...well, in a completely lazy way because I only work on them during sewing class.  It's strange, but I don't like to mix projects.  Sewing class projects are ONLY sewing class projects and vice versa.


And here's a photo of a knitting project.  This will eventually be the tweed skirt as pictured here.


Okay, I'm getting in trouble now 'cuz it's time to eat lunch.  So have a good weekend everybody!!

    1. I think it's a beautiful design - I hope the people I'm making it for will like it!

  2. I'm currently also working on a cross stitch. I-m at the point where it feels like I work a lot on it (an hour a day), but I'm just adding details so sometimes it doesn't feel like it's changing at all. I look forward to seeing your finished project.

    1. Cross-stitch is definitely slow-going, especially the embellishment (and all that back-stitching!) at the end. But I love working with all the colors and seeing the design progress. Post a photo of your project! :)

  3. You are working hard Donna!!!! I mix projects all the time...sometimes it is a bad idea, but I think that to be jumping between projects is better, so to not be angry if something is going bad.

    1. I can't just work on one project at a time. It's maybe not the most efficient way of working, but I enjoy myself. ;)

  4. The cross stitch is beautiful! I really like the look of your tweed skirt, too. I'm afraid I'm constantly mixing projects, I just need some quick fixes in between if something takes a long time...

    1. Yeah, and sometimes I need something easy 'cuz my brain gets overloaded or I'm just being lazy. ;)
