{WiP} Wednesday ~ 24/52

Man, these weeks go by fast!

I don't have much "in progress" to show, but I've got a lot on my list, that's for sure!

I was pretty productive this week, though, and got a few finishes! Woot woot!!

I finally  finished Audrey's wonky house block. It's not as cool as the others she has gotten, but I did my best for right now. :-/

Wonky house for Audrey

I also made a bunch of 9-patch blocks because we make baby blankets for new babies in our guild, and right now we are expecting 6 more babies! I decided to make it easy on myself and got 9 pieces of Sock Monkey fabric and just strip-pieced 9 blocks rather quickly.


And in the end, I decided to make a bag for our Front Range MQG grocery bag swap. It's definitely different than everyone else's, but that's okay. :-). I made it out of a pair of my old jeans that had a hole in the knee, and almost didn't give it away! :-). (tutorial coming soon)

A New Chapter

You can see that it's really handy to carry plastic vegetables. :o)

This week I'm working on catching up on all the bee blocks I've got to do.  My goal is to finish Natalie's bookshelf block, and then finish the 2 mod mosaic blocks I have to do for June. Then I'll go back and do Nicole and Alison's blocks for the Bee Happy bee, and then I'm done with those. I hate being this far behind.

I wonder how long I can use the "I've got a newborn" excuse...

(I'm linking up with Lee of Freshly Pieced for her regular WiP Wednesday blog party)

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced


  1. Always handy to have a bag to carry your plastic veggies...

  2. I called Jacob a baby until Elise was born last week. You can still use the newborn line for a while!!

  3. Milk the newborn excuse as long as possible, until he is one at least! Great blocks, I really like the house one. And you jeans bag is super cute! I wish I had one of those for all our plastic (disfigured) veggies.

  4. Yay!! I'm super excited you're going to do a tutorial! I organized my closet on Sunday after our meeting, and came across a pair of jeans that don't fit anymore. I automatically knew I wanted to save them to make a tote like yours : )


What are you sewing?
