Joy in the New Year challenge update

Well, I had a whopping 2 UFOs for Jacquie’s Joy in the New Year challenge. With that few it should have been pretty easy to get them done, right? Well, 1 out of 2 ain’t bad, I suppose!

I finished the colour wheel embroidery, but I’m afraid the wild flower pincushion made from mini hexagons has bit the dust. I tried making some 1/2″ hexagons over Christmas but the fiddlyness drove me crazy so I only got as far as this (it’s less than 1.5″ across):

Hexagon flower made from 1/2" hexagons

I’m undecided as to whether I’m going to continue with this. Maybe I’ll make the odd hexagon here and there. For now though, this is going to remain a UFO. I wonder if that’s a sign of the way 2010 is going to go?!

Joy in the New Year Challenge

I’m sure you’ve come across the Joy in the New Year challenge that Jacquie has started which is a challenge to finish up as many WIP’s as possible before the start of 2010. Now I’ve got a few projects on the go or about-to-be-on-the-go at the moment, but most have hard deadlines like Christmas or baby due dates so I’m not worried about getting them finished. However there are a couple of projects that I really want to do, but without hard deadlines, I think they may loose out in my time rationing.

So I’ve decided to put these non-deadline projects down for Jacquie’s challenge:

  1. Wild flower hexagon pincushion, which has been sitting in my Current Projects list for _ages_
  2. Colour wheel embroidery

I really want to get both of these done and now I have a hard deadline for them there’s no way they’ll get lost and forgotten about. Sorted!

Oh and on the Ponies and Cars front, I’m giving the suggestions from Elle and Cheryl a go and have washed the fabric and will make a test block at the weekend to see how the fabric holds up. Fingers crossed…
