Relegation Rescue February 2012

Back at the beginning fo February I had an idea for a bit of a linky party called Relegation Rescue. You can find the original post here. All you have to do to join in is rescue a project from falling off of your WIP list and onto your UFO list by showing it a but of TLC, then write a blog post about the project - why you started it, why you stopped. You never know - you may fall back in love with it. And you absolutely do not have to have finished something to join in - just a few stitches counts as "rescued"!

Once you've posted, or if you're just visiting, please go and visit some others (here's hoping there's more than just me playing) and give them some encouragement with their old project.

My "rescued" project this month is my Vignette quilt. I love this quilt and I adore the fabrics I picked (Lily and Will). It's a mystery block of the month quilt by Leanne Beasley (and Leanne has now shared 10 blocks - that's how far behind I am). I finished block 1 last September (but can't find any blog post on it - must share this with you sometime) and blocks 2 and 3 seemed to stall. It's just that other projects got in the way. And because there is so much embroidery, it takes time. This is block 2. I pieced it during the bank holidays we had last year for the royal wedding (April) and didn't get much further with these blocks. But I picked it up again, and I have done some of the embroidery on the pieced section. It is still a long way from finished, but it is out of my own relegation zone. Maybe if I stopped signing up to more quilt-alongs I would be able to finished some of my WIPS!

This is my first attempt at a linky (it took me a while to get it to work)! It will be open for a week. I look forward to seeing all of you WIPs.

Have a good, stitchy weekend - I had the day off today, so should have loads to share later this weekend :)

p.s. I'm linking to my own post to make sure it works.....
