WIP Wednesday 1.18.2012

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Oh Wednesday, so we meet again.  I feel like we just did this, what, last Wednesday??  Anyways, I would think after a year of participating in WIP Wednesday, the shock that Wednesday always seems to roll around much too soon would have worn off, but it hasn't.  Here's what I've been up to...

New Projects


swoon block #1

swoon block #2

A gal only has so much willpower.  After seeing all the amazing swoon-spiration in Katy's Swoon-along flickr group, I just had to join in the fun.  I am proud of myself that I'm working 100% from my stash (with the exception of buying more solid as needed), and resisted the temptation of doing a little fabric shopping.  More on my Swoon blocks here.

In Progress

Citrus Berry Punch Baby Quilt

I'm EBB here...thats Everything But Binding on this little guy.  He's all quilted, and binding is on the agenda for this evening.  

January Bee Blocks

These blocks are for Amanda in the Inspire circle of do. Good Stitches.  She asked for Sawtooth star blocks, so I put together these sort of nested stars.  I'm really happy with how these turned out, especially that teeny tiny 3 inch star!  

Jeni sent along some awesome It's a Hoot fabric for our Mod Stitches Bee, and that's on the agenda for this week also.

Ripple Afghan

I've been crocheting away while we feed our obsession of The Big Bang Theory (we recently saw the "Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock" episode, and the hubs is now obsessed with finding ways to use this in real life, HA!)  I'm about through one set of all 8 colors, I'm thinking three repeats should make it large enough for a nice snuggle size, so I'm about a third of the way there!

  17. Wow, I love it all! I do love the binding and the colors of the baby quilt and that ripple afghan is going to be awesome. I wish I had crochet skills. I can knit fine, but somehow in crochet, I always get lost midway through a pattern. ;-) Those swoon blocks sure are lovely too.
