My Creative Space - Sunny Works in Progress


I'm enjoying sitting at the machine with the window open in this beautiful weather. I decided that it was high time I pulled these two UFOs (unfinished objects) out and turn them into WIPs (work in progress). They are from when I went to a Don't Look Now workshop.


Once a UFO is being worked on again, it is no longer a UFO, it is a WIP.


Before I do any quilting, I always check my tension and do a little practice on my practise sandwich.


I think I may need to make a new practice sandwich soon, as this one is getting a little full.


Does anyone else over-lap their practices like this?

See who else is playing along with Our Creative Spaces over here.


  1. Oh I love the picture! & I love the quilting you are doing on it! Even the practice piece looks effective! Great job!

  2. I tend to practise on something that can be made into a pot-holder... but I like the look of your overlappy practice bits. I'd want to turn them into something, too.

  3. That is so beautiful Carmel!
    I tend to use a scrappy bit and toss it away. I much prefer your method!

  4. Oh so happy & colourful, beautiful stitching, love Posie

  5. It looks great Carmel! I think I might make a larger practive sandwich - might be fun to watch as my FMQ improves!


Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to hear what you think.
