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!

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:


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.

#TackleThatWIP

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.

Enter your WIP

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!

Love,
Irene
