WIP Wednesday

Here we are and it's Wednesday again.  
I missed last week but no problem cause I didn't get anything done. This weekend I got my hourglass blocks all sewn together. This is a great baby blanket size but I think I'll a border to it and make it a little bigger and give it to a cousin for Christmas. The just bought their first house and I think a bright quilt might be nice.

Also this week I worked on my string strips. Not quite a finish but I did get some progress. We have Hailie's  dance team performance tomorrow and hopefully I will be able to get the rest pieced together after that. Depending on how I feel also. I was watching the news yesterday and realized last year we had a pretty bad ice storm and I got the flu and I think I'm coming down with it again. Fun, fun fun, But it seems to be going around. I love it when people come to work and share their flu germs. OK enough of my bitching complaining.

I got a few more of these orange peel blocks done. If I try and do a couple everyday hopefully this won't take so long.

Not a bit done in this scraptastic box, although I did find the pattern for it so we'll see what happens.

My Chevrons also received some loving. I have all my hst's cut out and now I have the super fun of trimming them all down. I wish I had a cutter for that like those scrapbook cutters. Just set them in, push it down and BOOM!!!!! all cut to the perfect size. Wishful thinking? Or a business opportunity?

Bliss tumblers. Nothing

Hometown quilt. Thought about it but made myself work on the other things mentioned above

Dresdens. I used one for a pillow awhile back and pieced it onto ash. Well my idea is what if I made them all pillows and placed one on Kona medium, one on charcoal and one on white? Just a thought, am i crazy?

Modern Workshop. Nope

So all and all a pretty productive week. I even got caught up on my sew happy quilt-a-long blocks and remade a bee block to get out in the mail. 
So this week I just need to work on the projects above and get my LQS blocks of the months done for January.

Oh, a white pillow in my house would NOT be a good thing! They look beautiful, but I know with my dogs and kids it would be grey in a few weeks!! LOL
