Changing a PHD

The PHD being referred to is not rocket science or micro bionics, rather it is a long neglected Project Half Done.  I had an idea to do a Calendar Quilt, with different images for each month.

Years and years ago I got this far:



But I went off the blocks, so it never got any further.  I remembered it as I was doing the paper piecing yesterday as, as you can probably see, the January snowflake had been paper pieced.

Today I decided to look at doing the designs as machine embroidery instead

So here is the new January

I'm not sure what I'll do with these blocks, but I do think I'll keep going with the designing


  1. Must try and do a heart before 14th Feb. x

  2. Love that explanation of PHD! Is there one for BSc, perhaps -blocks semi completed?

  3. I like the idea of turning one PhD into another!! ;)

  4. I might have a PHD in aero-spacial phenomena (UFOs)

  5. Ha, you're not meant to breed WIPs ;o)

  6. Hahaha, just laughed so hard at Cindy's comment! Love your embroidered snowflake x

  7. You are ahead of the game already, February and March sorted and it is not even the end of January! As it is a perpetual calendar too, you have oodles of time to work on it :)

  8. OOhhh, and left over blocks to make something else with! Love the idea, hope that it reaches a finish! x

  9. Love the stitched snowflake, so much more delicate than the pieced version. Good luck with your PHD!!
