Back from Vietnam - it was a wonderful holiday. I even got a bit of handsewing done for the Sydney Modern Quilt Guild charity quilt!
Starting with on the plane:
At my dad's house in Vietnam - the red hexies:
And the red-purples:
And the green-blues - handsewing on the train going in to work this week:
I'm pretty sure I did the yellows and the oranges while in Vietnam, but I can't seem to find them anywhere. *grumble*
quilting projects 2013
It's going to have to be a productive first half of the year, because the second half is going to be quite seriously disrupted by a trip to the US and Italy for six weeks.
Woodland by Natalie Lyman
I'm going to do something small and sweet with these charms squares of 'Woodland' by Natalie Lyman:
Probably a very simple rail-fence-like design.
Round The World
It feels like nearly everyone's doing the Round The World right now - it is a lovely, simple quilt to make - and great for scraps.
Not that these Kona strips are 'scraps' exactly. I cut them out while slicing strips from which to cut the Eternity Quilt triangles - I figured since I had it all out, I might as well make some strips for a project of unknown specifications. :)
We'll see how it turns out. I may regret using these strips for a RTW which looks like it would work best scrappy, but I guess we'll find out!
Going to the US 2013
I need to make quite a few quilts this year - I'm planning to head over to the US and while there, I'll offload a bunch of quilts for friends with whom I've stayed through the years, and take back a HEAPLOAD of fabric. :)
I also would like to make some clothing for cosplays since I intend on attending at least one fannish media convention in 2013 while in the US. Think the Victorian-style dress I put together for Halloween, only based around a specific character.
Only perhaps more complex.
These are some lovely dress designs based on the characters in the Avengers movie and designed by Kelsey Michele.
(I have broad shoulders, and a nearly non-existent hip-to-waist ratio, which means I need something that really nips in at the waist and flares out at the hips.The Thor dress would look best on an hourglass, or a girl with good hips.)
Over-ambitious, I think. Still. *sighs*
Anyway, a slightly scattered first WIP Wednesday for 2013! What have you been working on?
