39! Wow! That is how many of you joined with a WIP on the first edition of Tackle that WIP. Can’t believe so many of you set a goal for yourself and started finishing project. Some projects were started recently, but also some projects have been laying around for years. It is just so inspiring to see your progress on our #tacklethatwip hastag on Instagram.

Only a few more days left in October. How did you do? Did you finish your WIP? Or did you reach your goal for the project you chose?

I am going to use the weekend to finish my WIP. I’m still working on the details on the Sugaridoo Sampler. I already did the birds, sewing machines, snails and penguins. But I still need to finish the bunny, doggy, kitten, toucan and fishes.

And I decided that I wanted to finish Charlie the Cat in grey and orange. Yesterday I nearly finished all the parts during a lovely crochet get together #hakenindekas. So now I ‘only’ have to sew all the parts together. Should be manageable in one weekend I think :)

Now for your progress! Did you finish or reach your goal? If so, pop an picture of your project in the tool below and maybe you will win this months price of your choice!

Thank you so much for joining me this month in our very first TTW. Want to join again? Just make sure to check out the blog on the first of november to see who won and to enter a project for November.

It is today!! The first of October. The day that we are starting our WIP movement together. There were soo many positive comments after mentioning that I wanted to start something to finish our WIPs together. Awesome! I’m super excited that you are with me.


Since so many of us have multiple WIPs, and since it feels so good to finish a WIP every now and then I wanted to start something so motivate each other. So, every month I’m going to host #TackleThatWIP here on Sugaridoo. (Thanks Liesbeth for this awesome hashtag suggestion!) This will hopefully give us some accountability and support for the projects that we really want to finish.

It doesn’t matter if you only need to finish the binding of a quilt, if you need to sew together an amigurumi or if you want to set a milestone for your own project such a finishing a quilt top or adding 10 rows to your crochet blanket. It all helps tackling your WIP right?

What’s the plan?

Here’s the plan.

  • I will put a blog post online on the 1st of the month (that’s this post).
  • You can pick a WIP goal that you want to finish this month
  • Enter a picture of your WIP with your goal during the first 4 days of the this month.
  • In the last week of the month I’ll post a new blog post where you can enter a picture of your WIP when it’s finished.
  • You have until the last day of the month to enter your results of the month when you reached your goal.
  • Every finished WIP goal (that was announced in the beginning of the month) will give you one entry into that months give away.

Are you excited? I know am!

Did you say something about a giveaway?

Yess, there will be a price each month. A finished WIP makes room for a new one, right? This month I’ll be the sponsor of the give away. For the following months different shops will sponsor the price for #TackleThatWIP.

This month’s winner can choose between a rainbow fabric bundle with Kona Solids by Robert Kaufman or a rainbow yarn collection with Musthave 100% cotton yarn by Yarn&Colors.

My project for this month

This month I would love to work on the Sugaridoo Samper. I still need to add details to the figures in the quilt, eyes on the animals, air bubbles for the fishes, a needle for the sewing machine, etc. I’d be so happy if I could finish that this month!

And the winner is…

Next month, on the 1st of November, I’ll announce the winner of the give away. (Which will be picked randomly with help ot random.org) And also I will put some of your beautiful projects in the spotlights.


Good luck with picking your project for this month. Can’t wait to see what you will be working on!
