{WiP} Wednesday ~ 16/52

Slow and steady wins the race, right? Well, I won't be winning any races, but I've got a bunch of bee blocks to make, and I'm trying to chip away at those whenever I get the energy, the time, and the mental wherewithal to work on them.

The mental wherewithal seems to be the rarest of them all.

I'm partially finished with that Bee Happy pieced heart I mentioned last week. I got the heart part all paper pieced like I want it, but now I'm stuck on how to add the white around the outside. Any suggestions? Everywhere you see tan paper is where there needs to be white fabric.

(like how the heart is drawn?)  :o)

And I'm also partially finished with my "block" for the {Faith} Circle of the do.Good Stitches bee.

All that's left is to trim the squares to 4", then sew them together in a randomly scrappy zig-zag pattern.

Then I've got to bust a move and make 2 Mod Mosaic blocks for Jeannette. Once I get those done, I can relax and work on one house block for Audrey, one bookshelf block for Natalie, and one Gee's Bend-inspired block for Nicole. the time I get done with what I have to get done, I'll get instructions for 6 new blocks!

(it's no fun being this far behind!)

You know me, I've got a million other things in the works, too, but nothing worth losing sleep over.

Especially considering how precious little sleep I'm getting right now!

In other news, Jenn at Sunny in Cal really really surprised me when she nominated me for the Liebster Blog Award. She did that 2 days before Rocket Man was born, and I haven't quite gotten myself together enough to (a) thank her, (b) blog about it, and (c) nominate others! :o)  Shame on me!  I will get to that...

You know what? I'll do that Friday. Friday I'll do that. And post some pictures of other stuff. I promise I'll do it Friday.

I'm linking up with Lee of Freshly Pieced (of course!) for WiP Wednesday. You should go over there and see what other cool stuff people are working on this week.

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Considering that you just gave birth to you third a few weeks ago, you are doing great!

  2. Yay for progress! For the white, you'll need to build it up kind of fan style round the curves I fear... Unless you want to try some inset piecing? You could cut a heart shape out of the red bit, trace it onto the back of the white, then add 1/2" all the way round for SA and cut out the centre, then piece the heart in. You'd need to do some mad curve clipping though.

    Good luck with the rest of the list!

  3. I love the colors and the pattern of that zigzag strip!!


What are you sewing?
