Making Progress on the Works in the Making

Hmmmmm, that sure is a long blog post title isn't it? The first photo shown here is my thread snippet container. It is getting mighty full and I keep stuffing everything down and compacting it more. One of these days I'll use it for something. I have used this in the past to make a journal quilt. I used it as the background. It was a journal from back in March of 2007, if you care to scroll through the archives.

Here are some ATCs that I'm working on. The fronts are finished, now I need to fuse on a backing and stitch around the outer edges.

And look at this little guy! I had an extra ATC background and so I made a kitty.

Oh, and here's a photo of something I forgot to show you before. It's a gourd that I'm decorating and I'm still, slowly working on it. Yes, I have several thousand projects going on at once.

Oh, don't forget the real kitty. Abby said she wanted to get in on the picutre taking session too.


  1. That is one lean, intense, beautiful cat. And I'm not really a cat lover.


  2. Let me know when you are going to do the thread playing again. I have a huge bucket of threads from the embroidery machine and every other machine that uses threads. I've been saving them for something brilliant!

  3. Abbey is beautiful and I love the design of your cat ATC. You seem very organized and have some great projects going on there!

  4. what a beautiful face she has.

  5. cutie kitty...abby and the flat one.

  6. I am glad I am not the only one that has numerous craft projects going at one time. Sometimes I feel like I have too many pots on the stove, but it keeps my creativity going.

  7. I have just been throwing out all my thread snippets. Shame on me!
    Is that cat a purebred? If so would you mind telling me what breed? She is beautiful!

    I have been saving thread snippets for a long time also. I read about a project that used these threads in but I have long lost that article (and found many more). Actually just the jar full of various colors is a great decor item. I absolutely love your style--how in the world do you find time to create so many various projects?

    Terri I also collect threads. Some years ago I went to the Canadian Doll Makers meeting and took a doll pin class. The dolls were made of several layers of tulle and then stuffed with threads such as you have. Having a lot of colors makes for an interesting doll.


I enjoy getting your comments. Thanks so much for leaving one.
