WIP 13/06/2012

Holy Cow it is the middle of June!!! Where the heck is time going in such a darn hurry!!! I didn’t get much done in the sewing room this week. I ended up taking apart my love square and redoing it and now I am in love with it. I also got one other bee block done and made some progress on my Christmas QAL. So maybe I got done more than I though...LOL

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.

Bee Creative 2012 block for Amanda- Chunky Chevron block in white, blue and Orange.
Wonky Bee block - Waiting for my package to arrive
International Stashers block for Amy- Wonky LOVE block. Now I don’t know how wonky it ended up turning out, but after I ripped it apart and made a few changes I am really loving it now. The V kind of looks likes a backwards Y, but I am still really happy with it I kind of cut off the bottom in this picture though...lol

  1. Well, you said you didn't do much, but it looks like you did! :). I like your lists! I really need to take stock of my projects! Love the red and white HSTs and your LOVE block!

  2. Looks to me like you are busy there. I like the zigzag block.

  3. You've got a lot going on, Mrs. Pickles. Love the zig zag.

  4. I found the Christmas QAL unit C's really hard going! And I still haven't trimmed them - too worried that they will be undersize or a wonky!

    I like the zig zag block too - I think you are hard on yourself, you always seem to get plenty done and have lots of projects on the go and are willing to get stuck in! More power to your elbow!

  5. Your zig zag block is wonderful! You did get a lot done this week!

  6. seems to me you must have put the time in to accomplish what you did! And yes, those HST take practice to get them right and to line up properly!

  7. Your blocks are fabulous! I really love them, especially your love block :)

  8. I feel tired just reading about all that you have done, keep up the good work Mrs P. x

  9. 'Scuse me? I thought you said you didn't do much? If that's your idea of not doing much, I dread to think what you achieve when you do a lot!

  10. Your zig zag and LOVE blocks look awesome! And your Christmas one is coming along nicely! Keep on truckin'...Before you know it middle of June will be middle of December! lol

  11. Great stuff! I like the red and black zig-zag block...it's so hard to photograph red isn't it.

  12. Seems we all think we never get much done - until we sit back and remember in detail.
