WIP 02/05/2012


Well it is that time of the week again. I didn’t get a lot done in the past week, but I did get my bee blocks finished by the 30th. Two blocks went in the mail on the 30th and the other 2 are going in today, since I forgot to take them along the other day...lol April was a busy month with the blog hop, going away and the 5 bees I am in. Most of my April to do list did not get completed so here is to May being more productive!

Today I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

Okay so I am going to start with a couple of finishes off of the April to do list.

We Bee Learning group one block for Jane- Whirly giggle. After I got my template to the correct size this was nice and easy to make. Jane asked for girly fabric and I think this will go along nicely with the others.

International Stashers block for Meg- Octagonal Orb for Amy. When I started to sew the triangles together I was amazed at how well my seams were going together. However, when I put the pairs together it started to get a lot less perfect. Nonetheless, I am still really happy with it. It was A LOT of work though. The link to the tutorial can be found HERE


My May to do list
We Bee Learning group one block for Teresa- Still waiting for this one to be posted
We Bee Learning group two block for Barbara-She would like a Bow Tie Block in a theme...I still have to go through my fabric to see if I can find a theme. Or oh no I might have to by more fabric..What a shame....tee hee hee J
Bee Creative 2012 block for Jennifer- Still waiting for this one to be posted
Wonky Bee block for Cherry- It is currently in the mail crossing the border hopefully
International Stashers block for Shauna- Raw edge circles...4 big ole blocks..This one scares me!!!
Red white and blue Blog hop – I know one thing I am going to make for sure, but I would l like to make more than one block...I don’t think it has to be quilted just a block so that works for me...lol

We Bee Learning group one Quilt- The grey fabric for my sashing came in. Now I need to get to work
We bee Learning group 2 quilt- I am suck on sashing or no sashing now...lol
May NEWFO- I bought a couple of kits that I would like to try and at least start this month
2011 BOM- Since it is 2012 you can see I am a bit behind on this one. I have Jan, Feb., March done. I just finished April and I am working on May.
Halloween Wall Hanging- this was a kit so everything is ready to be to start cutting and sewing

So there you go my rather long and scary list of what I would like to get done. If you are a regular here you might have noticed that there are some things that are not coming off the list....lol I noticed too and I am going to try and get one thing from the WIP without progress section this month!!!
