. unfinished projects .

i thought i would pull out one of 'those' projects: the ones that get started - with great passion - and then end up back in the cupboard or the spare room, awaiting the motivation and time to be finished. and its very timely (weather-wise) to pull this little gem out and complete it...well, nearly complete it.

it has been getting increasingly colder these days as we draw near the end of autumn and approach the dreaded cold of winter, so another couch quilt wouldn't go astray. this was my second attempt at a quilt - and i rather like it. haha
i get to use my mothers old sewing machine, a Bernina Record that dates back to 1960, which makes this whole experience a little sweeter. i haven't got any fabric to make an edge for the quilt, or the patience to hand sew anything, so i think i'm going to make a shag-quilt edge. i have zig-zagged around the edge and now have to snip & wash to finish it off. warm winter nights on the couch aren't too far away.



  1. Love the colours! Love seeing a finished 'unfinished project' too.
    Very inspiring. xx
