I’m getting very close to finishing the wedding present for my brother, which means I’ve been starting to think about what next to work on. There are of course a couple of cardis I’m close to finishing, so they’re on the list. And I’m really looking forward to continuing with my winterkist quilt, and starting my space invader one (though I still need to order the fabric). And of course starting to quilt moonglow (once I order the batting and figure out where to baste it).
But I’ve also been feeling the urge to start stitching again. I used to do a lot, but haven’t really done any for quite some time now. Steadily, over the last few months, I’ve been thinking about dusting off a WIP and putting some time in each week. But which one?
My oldest WIP, back when I was a one at a time girl, is one I still love. And really, what’s not to love when a dragon is involved?
Or my second oldest WIP back when I convinced myself that once I opened the door to two projects, I’d limit myself to that. Plus, this mandela based on the Alhambra really called to me, especially after having visited the Alhambra in person. I love the jewel tones.
Of course, I could pick something that I know will be the fastest to finish. Although, I think I need to order more gold beads for this one.
But there’s also the one I started right before I downed my tapestry needle. This is a square design with all four corners being mirror images of each other. I do love the intricate design paired with the simplicity of wine on grey.
Or there’s the piece I started when I first moved to Cardiff, while all my possessions were still on a ship on their way from Australia. I can see this becoming the centre on a red and white quilt. I’ll probably use some of the motifs as inspiration for the rest of the quilt.
Decisions, decisions. Maybe I’ll end up choosing more than one.
