Yayy! We finished the first round of Tackle That WIP: 39 projects were started, 29 got finished. How awesome is that! I love how we can follow each others progress via the #tacklethatwip hashtag on Instagram.

Noww for the TTW of October, we got a winner! Under strict supervision of the hubsie and kitten Tommy I pick a random number between 1 and 29 via Random.org. And the winner is……. Beth Peters! She finished this beautiful quilt:


Well done Beth! Congratulations and thank you so much for joining. I’ll get in touch with you so ship the fabrics or yarn your way!

November and December combined

For the next round I suggested on Instagram to combine the coming two months. They can be quite busy with all the holidays, so it just felt like a good idea to combine them and give us until the end of the year to finish our next WIP. Sounds far away right, the end of the year ;)

My projects

How did my WIP projects go? Well, I have to be honest.. In October I ALMOST finished the Sugaridoo Sampler quilt, just a couple more stitches and then it’s done. But I did finish the orange and grey Charlie the cat from my pile of WIPs. So even though I didn’t completely reach my goal, I’m still very happy with what I got done!

This month I would like to make my ‘Tree Tree House Quilt’. I designed this quil a long time ago. I’ve selected the fabrics, and started cutting, but didn’t sew any sewing yet. So that would be a very fun project to work on!

My sister in law saw this digital sketch some time ago and already started on making the quilt. She couldn’t wait for me to finish the pattern. She’s making it much smaller than I had intended. I saw her first rows of block on our quilt retreat the other weekend and it’s going to be so cute!

Link up your project!

You can link to a picture of a project. You can do so from your blog, your instagram or flickr. If you have questions about posting, let me know in the comments below so I can help you out. (It’s possible to not link to anything, but of course it’s more fun when we can follow each others work online.)

Some things to keep in mind when participating:

  • Post a picture of the WIP you want to finish this month. Enter again at the end of the month to have a change to win this months price.
  • Upload your own pictures only, don’t enter with a WIP that’s not yours
  • Please do check out some of the other WIPs and let’s encourage each other!
  • By entering a picture you give Sugaridoo permission to feature your project on the Sugaridoo social media channels
  • Please don’t link to Etsy stores, giveaways or other linky parties.

This months price

Of course there is a price again this month. We can all use some extra motivation to tackle those WIPs. I’ll let you know later this month what it’s going to be :)

There we go for November + December:

  1. Thank you for your inspiration to tackle a wip. My grandmother Rosa handquilted pillows, and was an inspiration to me. Before she died in 2001, she helped me select fabrics for a log cabin quilt ” to work on sewing straight lines.” That project got started, but baby 3 put crafting away for a long time. The fabric traveled to my mother’s house, then her 3 moves. Watching YouTube, you told me to get started. I traveled to mom’s, got the fabric, and have finished the top. Baby 3 is 18, and has claimed the top. Baby 1 is 23 years old, and asked for the same quilt from left over fabric. Thank you for inspiring me to finish, celebrate grandma Rosa, and have coffee with mom and clean out her closet. And 2 of 3 kids are happy. Child 2 will claim another project on another day.
