WIP Wednesday {10.26.2011}

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Oh Wednesday, why must you sneak up on me so??  There are just not enough hours in the day/days in the week to get all I want accomplished!  Here's what's been going on this week...

Completed Projects

Chocolate Sanctuary baby quilt

Chocolate Sanctuary baby quilt

I finished up this baby boy quilt and it is now off to its new home.  More on this quilt here.

In Progress

ABC Sampler

Daisy Chain ABC Crewelwork Sampler

I am just absolutely in love with working on this sampler.  Each letter is different, so its been fun learning all the different stitches.  This little guy has been keeping me company on the couch as the hubby is enthralled with all the scary movies on TV this time of year...totally not my cup of tea.  

Farmers Wife QAL

Farmers Wife QAL #36

I jumped back in to the Farmers Wife QAL with two feet last night, and boy did I pick a doozy to get to work on!  This block took almost an hour and a half to finish, but I'm really pleased with how it came together.  (yay for matching points!!)
