Wagonload of wips













Which first...?? No idea...
There´s the Housecoat quilt, a hanging in the making,
a small long cloth, waiting for more of its kind to come
and hang next to it, there´s the beginning of an attempt
at a "traditional" quilt, in order to use up scraps...
There´s even more, to the left, and in baskets, and
over chairs...













And there´s something on the table, of course - a
few "storybook children" larvae in the ripe age
of almost 2 years who somehow got to the surface
of a basket, so I might as well finish them into
dollcreatures - and some necklaces... I´m going
to put them in the shop later or tomorrow. As I´ve
been asked about my fabric beads, I thought
I´d offer some combinations of those with other beads
(the fabric beads alone would cost unreasonable high
shipping, compared to their size and weight...), on
simple strings, which can be worn as a necklace as
they are, or taken apart and other elements added
to create a personal piece of jewelry...

Well, everything looks as though it belongs together, so why not put it all together in one big piece!

love seeing your wips. I'd need several walls for mine but I do like finding things I forgot about when I go through baskets or containers.

I could go broke with you. I just love the necklaces, but I'll have to wait and if if was meant to be, they'll still be there. I always love everything you post, even if I don't get a chance to comment on each post.all the wips are wonderful and the dolls remind me of what they used to call "church dolls" little cloth dolls that children would bring to church to keep them quiet. I'm either showing my age or the rural/backward area I grew up in. ha!

oo! Fabric beads?

I was at the Museum of modern art today and they were selling fabric beads there for outragous amounts..

now on to the japanses sewing..

I just got in touch with a japanese translator who will translate some of the pages for me so it it looking better.

I did have to enlarge most patterns, but since they are simply made it wasnt that hard. I am interested in that book you mentioned...

oh! how funny! i've been looking for the word "wip" in my dictionary and couldn't find it!

now i know it: i've also been collecting WIPS since last spring. i know some of them need more time to develop by themselves...

ger hat gesagt…

Yes, they have their own sense of time...
