This week's WIP list is short. I think that's a good thing because of the mental spanking I put on myself after I listed all of my WIPs the last time I linked up with WIP Wednesday. I thank all of you who commented and let me know I am not alone in having that many WIPs. I did work on a few of them. But I also started a new one. This one is not a big project but still a special one. After Anita won the Fat Quarter Shop giveaway. I visited her blog and saw these really great Bible covers she makes. I commented that I really liked them and she offered to make me one. How sweet is that?! I could not just accept one for nothing in exchange so I suggested a swap and that's how this little birdie quilt came about.
It is supposed to be bright and cheery. I showed it to my sister in law and as soon as she saw it she said it was "bright and cheery". So mission accomplished!
I also worked on my Farmer's Wife blocks. I reworked #23 and made #'s24-26 too!
I scan my blocks so I can add them to an Excel grid. So you can really see ALL of the details. Like how my points aren't perfect and how I stretch my triangles. But don't pay any attention to those things okay? :)
#23 ~ Country Farm
#24 ~ Country Path
#25 ~ Cups & Saucers
#26 ~ Cut Glass Dish
I am so happy that I didn't give up on these. I am really enjoying making them again. And I really love how they look together.I also want to say that Sunni is having a series on Farmer's Wife blocks for those of us who may not want to take on the whole quilt. It will have projects that will include a fewer number of the blocks. It will be fun. I will be making a project for the series. It begins in March.
I am also still working on my hand pieced blocks.
Still making Granny Squares and my other WIPs. I've decided I'm okay with it :)
